Brabus has officially unveiled a new Brabus 900 Rocket Edition this time based on the 2021 Mercedes-AMG G63 – the first G-wagon based Brabus Rocket.
The Brabus 900 Rocket edition is powered by a V8 twin-turbo engine that produces 300hp than the stock engine thanks to a myriad of changes that include increased engine displacement. The new powerplant was enlarged from 4.0 liters to 4.5 liters, the V8 twin-turbo now produces 900hp at a low 6,200rpm and 1,250 Nm at a low 2,900 rpm. In the Brabus 900 Rocket Edition, the peak torque is electronically limited to 1,050 Nm.
Additionally, the new Brabus 900 Rocket Edition weighs more than 2.5 tons but the acceleration from 0-100km/h is easily achieved in just 3.7 seconds while the top speed is limited to 280km/h to protect the tires from wearing out. The speedometer scale of the vehicle is 300km/h.
Additionally, the new turbocharging system also increases the power of the engine, the special turbochargers with large compressor unit and core assembly with reinforced axial bearings deliver a maximum boost pressure of 1.4 bar. When lifting off the throttle, the two Brabus BoostXtra valves produce a blow-off noise.
The vehicle has been equipped with a RAM-AIR intake system integrated into the exposed carbon radiator grille to ensure sufficient air is distributed into the engine. The fuel supply has also been adapted with special high-pressure pumps. The Brabus engine cover has been finished in red carbon fibre.
