Brabus, a German high-performance aftermarket tuning company which specializes in Mercedes-Benz, Smart and Maybach cars, has just introduced their new E V12 Brabus Black Baron sedan. The matte-black shadowy speedster (in essence a souped-up Mercedes-Benz) is like a really, really fast black hole.

The Brabus Black Baron is powered by a 6.3 liter V12 twin-turbo with a mind-boggling 800 horsepower and staggering 1,047 pound-feet of torque. All this power allows the Brabus Black Baron to go from naught to 62 mph in 3.7 seconds (it can hit 124 mph in under 10 seconds) and can reach a top speed of 230 mph (370 km/h). Only ten of the Brabus Black Baron cars will be produced. The cost of owning a vehicle that is as fast as the speed of darkness (like the speed of light, only darker)? $875,000.
