    That. Is. Awesome.

    I expect that car to be driven around without a number plate in Palo Alto sometime soon.

    What's that?

    Jobs is actually a Mercedes owner and has been for some time. I don't know what sort of cars he currently owns, but even a few months ago he's been seen driving one. If driven by himself, I think he should have a CLS, which is probably the closest to what Darth Vader would drive as a company car. If driven by somebody else, Jobs should have an S-class. A Maybach would be just an overkill.

    I'm guessing they're just commenting on how small the Mac Mini is, I highly doubt it's a custom built MM just for Mercedes.

    Could be Mini without case so it fits in smaller space (e.g. no optical drive etc)

    Nice, detailed job. Even the headphones have their dedicated place there.

    Lame.
    I want Lamborghini and I want it here and I want it now.
    No need for iPads, I'll be at my destination before you can say "are we there yet?"

    Nice. :) Though to be honest if I was in the market for a Brabus, I'd get the CLS 'Brabus Rocket'....4 doors, 230mph!

    I think Jobs drives a silver SLK ... or at least used to.

    Actually, if he still has it, it's a silver SL55 AMG (the SLK is the smaller and less expensive hard top roadster)

    ^^^ Yep. It was definitely an SL55 the last time I saw a photo of some rich douchebag with no licence plate, parking his Merc in a handicap spot. ;)

    I usually die a little when I see aftermarket tuners/bodykit companies butcher cars. But Brabus are legit. They do a great job with Mercs. Only concern I have with them is that they can't get all their power to the tarmac - just too much horsepower. The cars might look refined, but you'd spin it easily or shred your rear tyres trying to drive one of those hard.

    What's sad is the fact is that car probably costs more than what 5 average Americans make in a year combined.

    I would have thought that Steve is driving a more eco-friendly car...

    I don't understand. Apple isn't a struggling company. All people like that have expensive stuff, simply because they have the money.

    It costs much more than that.

    But lets not get into this conversation, if you earned it, you deserve it. That's not sad, that's nice.

    Torque is the problem, not horsepower.

    How come Steve Jobs doesn't have to have a license plate on his car?

    The Official Brabus blurb;

    BRABUS high performance meets high-tech multimedia: The “iBusiness” represents the world debut of an absolutely unique luxury sedan. The four-seater based on the Mercedes S 600 reaches a top speed of 340 km/h (211 mph). It is powered by a BRABUS SV12 R Biturbo 750 12-cylinder engine with a rated power output of 750 hp (740 bhp) / 552 kW and a peak torque of 1,350 Nm (995 lb-ft). The designers from BRABUS combine this engine with an innovative multimedia system that features the latest Apple components. Two iPads in the rear compartment not only play movies, music and Internet content, they also control all functions of the S-Class COMAND system.

    The BRABUS “iBusiness” stands for more than just peak performance. It stands foremost for innovative multimedia technology for which the BRABUS electronics specialists integrate state-of-the-art Apple components into the vehicle electronics of a Mercedes for the very first time. The BRABUS upholstery shop creates the perfect luxurious surroundings. The elegant fully leather interior is masterfully crafted from a two-tone combination of high-quality BRABUS leather that is especially soft, breathable and highly durable.

    At the heart of the “iBusiness” is state-of-the-art entertainment and communication technology on wheels. The centerpiece of the system is an ultra-small Mac minicomputer safely housed under the rear shelf in an electrically deployed drawer whose design mirrors the design of the computer itself.

    A 15.2-inch TFT display with 16:9 aspect ratio is integrated into the headliner covered with the finest Alcantara and contrasted with leather. Together with the standard screens in the back of the front headrests it serves as a display for the multimedia system. USB 2.0 ports integrated into the rear compartment allow connecting various peripherals to the Mac such as a webcam for video conferencing or a digital camera. The “iBusiness” is connected to the Internet via UMTS and HSDPA.
    The entire BRABUS multimedia system is controlled from the passenger seat or the rear compartment by two iPads that also control the car’s standard COMAND system with all functions such as radio, navigation system and telephone.

    While on the move the two tablet computers and the Bluetooth keyboard can be safely secured in precisely fitting recesses in the luxurious BRABUS rear tables. The table tops are covered with the same exclusive leather as the entire interior and are bordered by high-gloss aluminum frames. The tables are electrically deployed from special BRABUS seatback consoles and are infinitely adjustable to any angle. They offer ample space for perusing documents, the Apple mouse and keyboard.

    The music comes from a 64GB Apple iPod touch that can store more than 14,000 songs.

    The BRABUS “iBusiness” is built to order and can be combined with any engine variant from the S 350 to the S 65. Alternatively any existing current S-Class model can be equipped with the innovative multimedia system and all other BRABUS options.

    Obviously I don't know my top end Mercs. Thanks for the correction.
