Time For Evolution: BRABUS Shadow 900 Black OPS Signature Edition
- 19th Sep 2022
BLACK. BOLD. MORE BRABUS THAN EVER
The BRABUS Shadow 900 Black Ops Signature Edition makes the award-winning Shadow 900 Black Ops series bolder and darker than before. This next version is a compelling outcome of BRABUS' signature next-level performance, design language, and meticulousness.
Within the series, the available models include the totally open BRABUS Shadow 900 Spyder, the flamboyant and daring BRABUS Shadow 900 Sun-Top, and the XC Cross Cabin, an ultra-luxurious SUV of the Sea and fully enclosed Cabin cruiser. The BRABUS Shadow 900 XC Cross Cabin was awarded the Motor Boat Award 2022 for its confident, user-friendly, and elegant performance. It is a true embodiment of the BRABUS supercar DNA. A seagoing version of the SUV.
DESIGN & APPEARANCE. BOLDER THAN EVER
The BRABUS Shadow 900 Black Ops Signature Edition is as BRABUS as it gets with darker and additional brabusized design cues: including a dark, unmistakable "BRABUS Graphite Black" paint job, a brand new upholstery colour option in "BRABUS Graphite," and Signature Style graphics with red Signature Stripes that run across the entire exterior design concept and are accompanied by sleek hull badges in black chrome. The edition is handcrafted with an emphasis on accuracy and quality; the non-automated, labor-intensive processes of fairing, painting, and polishing alone may take up to six weeks.
The Sun Lounge, which is now standard on all BRABUS Shadow 900 models owing to its high degree of comfort and increased social space on the foredeck, is an additional feature of this next-level version of the legendary Black Ops series. Numerous additional elements, including a new LED searchlight, black engine cowlings with grey or red highlights based on specific upholstery colour selections, updated fender box panels, wall pockets, and LED bulwark step lights, enhance the boat's seductive BRABUS appeal.
The striking appearance of the BRABUS Shadow 900 XC has produced a fresh but immediately identifiable face within this popular boating category, transforming the conventional conception of what a purposeful cabin cruiser should look like. Whether you're looking for thrills or convenience, the BRABUS Shadow 900 XC is designed with performance at its core.
"Plenty of ominous BRABUS glitz and performance that will blow your socks off." A vessel that helps you feel unique." - Statement from the Jury, Motor Boat Awards 2022
