Does Gray Metallic Make This 900 PS Brabus S-Class Look Boring?

Since revealing their ultra-hot Rocket 900 during last year’s Geneva Motor Show, Brabus have pretty much put the whole world on notice when it comes to really fast luxury saloons.

You’d need to look long and hard for anything with four doors that will keep up with a 12-cylinder 6.3-liter twin-turbocharged former S-Class, now capable of putting down 900 PS (887 HP) and a staggering 1,500 Nm (1,106 lb-ft) of torque.

This translates into a 0-100 km/h (62 mph) sprint time of just 3.7 seconds and a top speed that eclipses 350 km/h (217 mph). Furthermore, you’ll do 200 km/h (124 mph) from a stand still in just 9.1 seconds.

As you can probable deduce from those numbers, this is a fun car to drive in a straight line and not even a rather bland color could do anything to change that – unless you really don’t want your Rocket to get lost in a crowd of gray Mercs.

Brabus will of course let customers configure the car to their exact specification, which generally means lots of leather, lots of custom logos and contrast stitching as well as lots of Alcantara and various other inserts.

    Nah, I think in person it would look good. But a pearl white or black or some other color might look better.

    The colour used is definitely not the major problem here.
