This is partly down to the fact that the rebuilt engine now sends 900hp to the rear wheels and offers the driver 1500Nm of torque to play with. But it’s also because Brabus has spent countless hours in the wind tunnel developing a unique aerodynamics package for the car.
And to ensure that the car can deliver on those figures on a regular, reliable basis, Brabus has rebuilt the 7-speed automatic transmission to handle the extra power, added a tougher limited slip differential, and to make certain that it doesn’t completely live up to its name, has changed the car’s aerodynamic profile at the front so that the front axle won’t lift under rapid acceleration or when nearing its top speed.
The Rocket’s interior is a blank canvas. Customers are encouraged to work directly with Brabus stylists to design a one-of-a-kind car.
The Brabus Rocket 900 is on sale now in Germany. Enthusiasts can buy a finished car directly from Brabus, or they can ship their stock S65 to have it transformed. Pricing hasn’t been announced, but it’s likely not a concern to the average Brabus buyer.
