The increased power (888bhp) and torque (1,050Nm) of the Brabus Rocket 900 come from a larger, 4.5-litre Biturbo V8.
German tuning house Brabus has now gotten its hands on a Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4MATIC+ four-door and converted it into the manic Rocket 900, which can only be described as a 'wolf in wolf's clothing'!
The biggest change on the Rocket 900 comes in the form of higher engine displacement – the standard 4.0-litre AMG Biturbo V8's capacity has been upped to 4.5-litres to extract more performance. Another change under the bonnet is the installation of bigger, custom-built turbochargers that feature a larger compressor unit. The front end also gets a new carbon fibre ram-air intake to provide the extra cooling and the larger engine capacity is also complemented by a new stainless-steel quad-exhaust setup.
Thanks to the mechanical upgrades, the Brabus Rocket 900 develops an earth-moving 888bhp and 1,050Nm of torque, 258bhp and 150Nm more than the standard AMG GT 63 S. The torque figure, however, has been capped to protect the gearbox and drivetrain, as the motor is capable of producing 1,250Nm! The Rocket 900's top speed has also been limited to 330km/h to protect the tyres, with 0-100km/h coming up in just 2.8 seconds (from a standstill).
Speaking of tyres, the Rocket 900 uses special high-performance Pirelli tyres wrapped on 21-inch (front) and 22-inch (rear) Monobloc Z wheels. To accommodate the new wheels, Brabus has kitted the Rocket 900 with a custom carbon fibre wide-body kit. The car's interior will also be custom-specced by its owner, with the help of BRABUS Manufaktur.
Brabus will create just ten examples of the Rocket 900, which means that each unit will cost its buyer nearly half a million dollars ($500,000)!
