Brabus engineers spent some time with the new S-Class and the results are outrageous as ever. The tuning house has turned the luxury limousine into a supercar rivaling package called the Rocket 900.
The Rocket 900 with a 6.3-litre twin-turbo V12 engine belts out 900bhp and a colossal 1500Nm of torque. A seven-speed automatic gearbox equipped with a high-performance limited-slip differential with a locking rate of 40 per cent does the duty of transmitting all the power to the rear wheels. It can achieve a top speed of 350kmph (217mph) and can accelerate from 0-100kmph in 3.7 seconds with the 0-200kmph mark dusted off in 9.1 seconds.
The 6.3-litre V12 is a bored out version of the 5.5-litre mill with a longer stroke crankshaft. It also gets new pistons and precision balanced custom billet connecting rods. The turbochargers are larger and the intake and exhaust have been modified to churn out more power.
Nobody asks for efficiency from a vehicle with a power output of 900bhp, but Brabus claims the Rocket 900 will return 11.6kmpl on the highway and 8.4 kmpl in the combined urban/highway mix.
It is for those folks who want be seated in luxury sipping champagne while discussing business and getting thrilled at the same time. We aren’t sure of its pricing, but expect a price tag as outrageous as its power figure.
