Of course, Brabus had to make thorough revisions to the seven-speed transmission to ensure it didn’t fail spectacularly upon unleashing that mountain of torque. Drivers can shift the gears manually via new aluminum steering wheel mounted paddle shifters.
Brabus hasn’t disclosed the pricing on the Rocket 900 quite yet, but stated that more information will be available at its public debut at this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show which starts in just a few days.
Completing the exterior treatment is a lowering module that drops the open-top 2+2 by 15 mm, and a set of alloys ranging from 18 to 22 inches.
With a top speed in excess of 350km/h and a host of billet-steel engine components, Brabus has created a monster convertible that is simply mind blowing. The price, well if you have a spare $500,000 in Aussie dollars lying around, you could actually put one of these in your garage.
It’s also packed with electronic add-ons, most of them custom jobs from Brabus themselves, and there’s even an app to control most things remotely. Finally, the coolest thing about this total beast of a cabriolet, the speedo, she goes to 400km/h. For real.
