Brabus rockets Merc cabrio

WHEN the 2017 IAA Frankfurt Auto Show opens its doors on September 14, it will showcase truck loads of new cars and automotive innovations. Among them will be the fastest and most powerful convertible ever built – the Brabus Rocket 900.

Based on the Mercedes Benz S 65, the exquisite black cabrio is powered by a 6.3-litre twin-turbo V12, generating 662kW of power and 1,500Nm of torque. The numbers are simply astounding, there’s no other way to describe what the German tuning house has done.

Capable of 0-100km/h in 3.9 seconds, the two-door four seat (2+2) Brabus also features a naked carbon fibre body kit, custom forged 21-inch wheels and a unique vanilla and black leather interior. The Rocket 900 in essence is a complete modification makeover and rebuild of the Mercedes.

With a top speed in excess of 350km/h and a host of billet-steel engine components, Brabus has created a monster convertible that is simply mind blowing. The price, well if you have a spare $500,000 in Aussie dollars lying around, you could actually put one of these in your garage.

It’s also packed with electronic add-ons, most of them custom jobs from Brabus themselves, and there’s even an app to control most things remotely. Finally, the coolest thing about this total beast of a cabriolet, the speedo, she goes to 400km/h. For real.
