Mercedes-Benz tuning specialists, Brabus have taken the wraps of the new S-Class project at the Geneva Motor Show 2015. The Brabus Rocket 900 promises to be the fastest and most comfortable cruiser to come from the German tuner. It is not the first time they have worked on the latest S-Class, we have already seen the Brabus 850, based upon the S 63 AMG.
The Brabus Rocket 900 takes the game to new levels as it utilities the V12 bi-turbo engine taken from the S65. In it standard form this engine produces 630 hp and 1,000 newton metres of torque, very impressive figures indeed. Brabus have reworked a number of components and as a result, as the name suggests, the Brabus car creates a staggering 900 horsepower!
