Brabus Drops New Pics Of Mercedes-Maybach Rocket 900

In this day and age, the term super-saloon has never been more diverse than when you can have both extreme luxury as well as over-the-top performance in the same package.

The Brabus Rocket 900 is based on the Mercedes-Maybach S600 and is mainly aimed at people who look at a Mulsanne Speed and think “oh boy, I’d never make any of my meetings in time with this thing.”

Let’s get serious about it, though. In the end, this car packs a huge amount of power and since this Mercedes goes by the name Rocket 900, you can pretty much tell where things are heading.

Its biturbo V12 engine is good for 900 PS (888hp) and a whopping 1,500 Nm (1,106 lb-ft) of torque, leading to a 0-100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration time of 3.7 seconds, and a top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph).

In order to make this car look more distinguished compared to a “regular” Maybach, Brabus have added a new front bumper, custom grille, new rear bumper with integrated diffuser, 21″ wheels and a luscious dual-tone full-leather interior.

The cost of doing business? Roughly €500,000 ($536,000). Then again, with a name like the “Rocket”, there was no way this was going to be reasonably priced.

    Brabus needs to stick with tinkering around with the performance, and not so much with the visual enhancements. Everything they do looks incredibly low-rent.

      I know right? Brabus used to make obscenely fast cars that did 228 mph a decade ago. That bragging rights justified the ridiculous price tag (and depreciation). If people are going to pay half a mil for this, I feel like this car should do 0-60 in 3 seconds flat, and do 240mph.

    That was interesting in the mid 2000’s with the firsts 700 hp Brabus S-class V12. Now playing the same game nearly 2020 and 1000 hp is short minded. I would love to see an AMG S65 version of the longer Maybach S-class… This is the model that Mercedes needs because the Maybach S600 feels cheap against Rolls-Royce and Bentley.

  • I THINK THE MAIN REASON MAYBACH FAILED AS A SEPARATE DIVISION WAS LACK OF IDENTITY SO BRINGING BACK THE OLD GRILLE IS A MISTAKE.
