Brabus Rocket 900
No one expected Brabus to be missing out on the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, and the tuner met expectations by showing off the Brabus Rocket 900. The car is not really a novelty, although it’s only now that they’ve announced pricing and more detail about the project. Battling for the throne of the most incredible V12-powered luxury saloon on the market, this Brabus is based on the S600 and benefits from 900 PS and 1,500 Nm (1,106 lb-ft) of torque. Not too shabby, right?
The interior has changed a bit, though, showing off a more conventional look – on a Maybach level, that is. As such, you will find an all-leather cabin, complemented by a bold brown tone. The headliner, as well as the A, B and C-pillars are all covered with brown Alcantara, keeping in line with the overall theme. Other materials worth mentioning include high-gloss piano lacquer wood inlays. The 21″ alloys you see here are new, but that’s but a finishing touch to an incredibly looking exterior.
The styling-kit is comprised of a new front bumper, radiator grille and rear bumper with integrated diffuser and tailor-made cutouts. The four chrome-plated tailpipes allow the driver to choose a subtle mode, or put the system in “Sport” and enjoy that V12 grunt. Speaking of which, the Rocket 900 is still bragging about 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph). There’s no point in asking if you like it, is there?
