TIME TO ROCKET! BRABUS 900 ROCKET EDITION - "1 OF 25"
17.06.2021 - For decades, the label ‘BRABUS Rocket’ has meant both uncompromising power and next-level capabilities. With the BRABUS 900 Rocket Edition, we are expanding our Rocket product program by combining the performance of a track-ready supercar with the space and practicality of the Mercedes-Benz G-Class in signature BRABUS fashion. Based on the Mercedes-AMG G63, this sports SUV redefines the top-end of the BRABUS supercar catalogue.Equipped with a newly developed Widestar aerodynamic-enhancement concept, 24-inch aero-disc wheels, a valve-controlled sports exhaust system, an exceptional bespoke BRABUS Masterpiece interior andthe latest in cutting-edge performance courtesy of the 4.5 liter BRABUS 900 twin-turbocharged V8 engineproducing its namesake 662 kW / 900 hp, the BRABUS 900 Rocket Edition is ready for take-off.
Defining the bold looks of the brand new BRABUS 900 Rocket Edition is a tailor-made, newly developed variant of the signature BRABUS Widestar exterior concept. Designed not only to give the SUV its extra athletic appearance but also its hyperspace aerodynamics, this purpose-built design features a special, all-carbon front spoiler enhanced by custom side flaps which reinvents the car’s iconic face while reducing front-axle lift at its staggeringly high speeds which, in turn, results in immaculate handling stability. In the rear, an emphatically sporty, roof-mounted wing as well as a custom diffuser maximize the full aerodynamic potential of the all-new BRABUS 900.
Defined not only by its hallmark BRABUS paintwork in either “Signature Black” or “Stealth Gray”, this unique bodywork conversion is also characterized by its attention to detail. Carbon fiber trim elements around the fender flares on the front and rear axles accentuate the re-imagined Widestar exterior design. Matching its rocket ship flair are the restyled signature twin sidepipes framed by an exposed carbon trim with integrated ROCKET Launch Ambience Light for an extra sporty and extravagant appearance. Last but not least, the hallmark radiator grille with integrated RAM-AIR intakes, ROCKET Startup Glow and an illuminated ROCKET logo as well as our red signature stripes ensure the unmistakable BRABUS look.
Ready for launch – Strap in and let the countdown begin. The BRABUS 900 Rocket Edition plays in a league of its own; it embodies the spirit of a modern supercar. It is the definitive combination of optimum power delivery and flawless durability. It is a spaceship – and rest assured, it does not just have spaceship looks. Under its full-carbon hood, the trademark 4.5-liter twin-turbo BRABUS 900 ROCKET V8 engine in combination with special high-performance turbochargers produces 662 kW / 900 hp and thus offers incredible power. With significantly increased displacement and 1,250 Nm of unrelenting torque transmitted via a nine-speed automatic transmission, this all-wheel drive super-sports SUV accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in just 3.7 seconds. The top speed is electronically limited to 280 km / h.
Let the deep baritone of the twin-turbocharged V8 amaze you as you fly over the horizon. The newly developed BRABUS stainless-steel high-performance exhaust system with actively controlled valves and integrated ROCKET Launch Ambience Light ensures the proper acoustics and looks while further perfecting power delivery by reducing the exhaust backpressure. Active sound management enables the driver to switch between an exceedingly throaty V8 sound in ‘Sport’ mode and a subtle whisper in ‘Coming Home’ mode at the touch of button.
The exclusive design of the BRABUS 900 Rocket Edition is emphasized by 24-inch BRABUS Monoblock "PLATINUM EDITION" Z high-tech forged wheels, which, through the use of state-of-the-art manufacturing processes, offer a unique look as well as maximum strength. In line with the signature Rocket design language, the wheels are fitted with the BRABUS ROCKET 900 Aero Discs for enhanced aerodynamics and an extra thrilling appearance. Combined with the BRABUS RideControl suspension system specifically designed for this model, this power SUV is as agile as it is stunning, defined by limitless driving fun and ravening determination. The optimal high-performance tires are provided by BRABUS technology partners: Continental, Pirelli and Yokohama.
Fortune favors the bold – as indicative by the red framed rear badge; our master artisans developed a bespoke, fully hand-crafted BRABUS Masterpiece interior specifically for this brand new model to match its sporty, vigorous appearance as well as its uncompromising performance. Refined down the last detail, the black leather design impresses with its immaculate finish, complete with crest-shaped quilting applied through pinpoint precision on the seats, trim elements and the footwells, which are likewise upholstered in the finest leather. Highly precise, colored decorative topstitching adds intriguing contrast. Unique for the variant painted "Stealth Gray," these and all the controls feature a finish matching the vehicle color. The topstitching in the BRABUS 900 ROCKET Edition in "Signature Black" features red yarns. All 216 cockpit elements from switches to speaker covers and air vents as well as all trim and handles feature the signature "ROCKET RED" glazing so you can feel truly at home on your way through the stratosphere.
The high-gloss carbon trim in the cabin emphasizes the extra sporty flair of this special model – as do the aluminum pedals and door lock pins, as well as the stainless-steel scuff plates complete with backlit BRABUS logo, which can change color in sync with the ambient lighting. In the rear, two bucket seats with numerous comfort functions such as multi-contour adjustment, memory and integrated seat ventilation as well as heating replace the standard bench seats, rounding off the spaceship feeling of the BRABUS 900 Rocket Edition. Of course, every buyer of a BRABUS 900 ROCKET EDITION can configure their supercar individually in every detail, which naturally also includes the color scheme of the bodywork and the interior.
