Brabus Premiers The Rocket 900 “Desert Gold” In Dubai

This big, modified Merc isn’t a new addition to Brabus’ amazing line-up, as it only was visually tweaked to comply to UAE’s lavish standards.

We’ve encountered the Rocket 900 plenty of times now, as Brabus never misses the chance to showcase the car’s amazing performance and capabilities, so you’re probably wondering what’s so special about this golden one. Well, the German tuning company says the Brabus Rocket 900 “Desert Gold” Edition – as it’s officially called – was developed as an homage to the Orient.

Unlike its other counterparts that bear the same “Rocket 900” nomenclature, this variant is instantly recognizable due to its “Desert Gold” special paintwork, complemented by the high-gloss body components, carbon-fiber aerodynamic components, and Brabus Monoblock F “Platinum Edition” 21-inch wheels with gold pin striping.

The golden motif even makes its presence felt at the interior, where the seats are covered in a combination of gold and black leather upholstery, besides the other 300 additional parts which were also painted in the same hue as the exterior

But the real treasure is under the hood, where a 12-cylinder, 6.3-litre, twin-turbocharged engine chugging out 900 PS (887 hp) and 1,500 Nm (1,106 lb-ft) of torque, patiently awaits to catapult the car from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.7 seconds and make it go beyond the 350 km/h (217 mph) mark when needed. Also, standstill to 200 km/h (124 mph) is performed in just 9.1 seconds, in case you were wondering.

As usual, the engine’s monstrous torque was electronically limited to keep it from destroying itself, and its displacement was increased from 5.5-litre to 6.3-litres. Not only that, but the stock turbos have been replaced with bigger units, while modified exhaust manifolds, down pipes with a diameter of 80 millimeters (3.1 inches) and a stainless-steel BRABUS high-performance exhaust system with free-flow metal catalysts and actively controlled butterfly valve complete the extensive tuning package.
