The Brabus 900 Rocket features 887 horsepower, a larger bodykit, 24-inch wheels, a lot of carbon fibre, and a huge rear spoiler.
The Brabus 900 Rocket gets 887bhp and a Big Wing
Only 25 G-Wagen-based Rockets will be produced, each costing €480,059 (about £411,000) before taxes.
To justify the price, the Bottrop tuner expands the G's normal 4.0-litre V8 engine to 4.5-litres before installing forged internals and two more powerful turbos.
The end result is the aforementioned 887bhp and a torque number of 774lb ft, which is electronically restricted.
Because of the ridiculous amount of power, the car accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in 3.7 seconds, with a peak speed of 174 mph to protect the tyres.
Given the Rocket's weight of nearly 2.5 tonnes, this is probably prudent.
More air enters the engine through redesigned intakes in the grille, and the new stainless steel exhaust may be valve-controlled for increased loudness.
Isn't there quite a bit of carbon fibre in that bodykit?
The material is used to make the redesigned bonnet, front splitter, spoiler, grille, wing mirrors, rear diffuser, and even the door handles.
The hefty wheelarches, which add 10cm to the already huge G-width, Class's are also noteworthy.
The wheels are forged, and the aero discs are made of carbon fibre.
There are a lot of red elements on the outside (which is becoming a Brabus signature) and much more on the interior of the "Signature Black" vehicle above.
If we've ever seen a bold interior specification, this is it.
What else do we have to say?
The Brabus may now be lowered by up to 45mm thanks to new coilover suspension, and the rear bench seat has been replaced with two diamond quilted individual seats.
The retractable tables are “just as perfect for working on a notebook or tablet as they are for reading a book, magazine, or important files,” according to Brabus. The centre console in between those new rear seats houses cooling cupholders and a drinks fridge, while Brabus says the retractable tables are “just as perfect for working on a notebook or tablet as they are for reading a book, magazine, or important files.”
But hopefully not while the entire 887bhp is being used.
