The German tuner Brabus has unleashed the new Brabus Rocket 900 at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. This is the latest customization work from Brabus using the Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG.
As signified by its name, the Brabus Rocket 900 is a high performance car that derives 900 horsepower from a 6.3 liter V12 engine. It must be noted that the original S65 AMG uses a 6.0 liter V12 engine giving 630 horsepower maximum. With increased engine output, the Brabus Rocket 900 can sprint from 0 to 100km/h in just 3.7 seconds, while its top speed is specified as 350km/h.
Other changes in the vehicle include a billet crankshaft, precision-balanced custom billet, new intake module and several design modifications. Moreover, it uses a newly designed stainless steel system rather than standard S65 exhaust manifold, while the stock twin turbochargers are replaced by larger units.
Mercedes-Benz has continuously been trying to penetrate new vehicle segments, specifically the high performance ones. The German automaker has recently introduced the Mercedes-AMG GT.
