Brabus Just Made The Mercedes-AMG S65 Coupe Into Even More Of A Monster


Luxury and power are a great combination.

Brabus has added another powerful car to its lineup and just by its name—the Brabus Rocket 900 Coupe—you know it's a beast. The Mercedes-AMG S65 Coupe is already an animal in its stock form, but Brabus didn’t think the luxury coupe had enough power and has increased performance to supercar levels. This German rocket now boasts 900 hp and 1,106 lb-ft of torque, with the latter is electronically limited to 884 lb-ft. This thing now has more power than an Aston Martin Vulcan.

That’s a massive increase over the S65 Coupe’s stock output of 621 hp and 738 lb-ft of torque. To get this kind of power out of the car’s 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged V12, Brabus increased the engine’s displacement to 6.3-liters and made a host of upgrades that include a special billet crankshaft, new turbochargers, a high-performance exhaust and a reprogrammed ECU. All of that power is put down through the coupe’s rear wheels through a reinforced seven-speed automatic transmission and a Brabus high-performance limited-slip differential. It should come as no surprise to hear that the luxury coupe is fast. The Brabus Rocket 900 Coupe promises to get to 62 mph in just 3.7 seconds and has a top speed of 217 mph.

Brabus has fitted the car with a new suspension module that can lower the vehicle’s ride height by around 0.6 inches, while a choice of 21-inch wheels or 22-inchers round out the package. Brabus has also worked on the coupe’s exterior with an aerodynamic kit that features a trunk lid spoiler, front apron, side skirts, rear diffuser and carbon fiber mirror caps. The interior features bespoke light brown and magnolia leather, aluminum parts, umbra-colored wood trim and back-lit scuff plates. The German tuner offers the Brabus Rocket 900 as a complete vehicle or as an extensive aftermarket package for current owners.
