‘ONE OF TWENTY-EIGHT’ LIMITED EDITION EXPLAINED

The BRABUS Shadow 500 Black-Ops ‘1 of 28’ is hand-built with focus on precision and finish. Fairing, painting and polishing the Limited-Edition version to the quality required is a highly labour-intensive, skillful and painstaking process, with no automation process, which can take up to six weeks to reach the required finish.

All Limited-Edition models are exclusively launched in the signature paint scheme Gunmetal Grey, combined with vibrant BRABUS Red exterior seating; a most striking combination.

A BOLD AND CONFIDENT DESIGN, WITH UNMISTAKABLE GOOD LOOKS
