Brabus are masters of more.
When you read the words "tuned G-Wagen," there's probably a pretty specific image that pops into your head. Odds are, that image is of a Brabus. Of all the loud, absurd, and undoubtedly controversial cars Brabus makes, it is perhaps best known for its take on the Mercedes G-Wagen.
In addition to raucous looks, Brabus always has something special under the hood. This time, the end result is 900 horsepower and a top speed of 173 mph. Hence the name, Brabus P 900 Rocket Edition One of Ten. Of course, there's a lot more to unpack in that name aside from just "900."
If you haven't guessed, the car with "One of Ten" in its name is, in fact, one of ten that'll be made. They won't be cheap either, at $639,490 before any import fees or VAT (if you're in Europe). You're getting a good bit of car for the money, both physically, as the Rocket weighs 5,997 lbs, and mechanically. Brabus says this V8 is its most powerful motor in production right now, making 900 hp and 774 lb-ft of torque.
Brabus gets these hilariously stratospheric figures by boring the standard G63 AMG's V8 out to 4.5 liters, upgrading the turbos, and adding custom engine management software. Thanks to the power and torque, the Rocket will reach 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds.
Obviously, a raft of cosmetic changes have been made as well. The car sits on Brabus' own 24-inch monoblock wheels with carbon fiber aero discs and 355/25R24 rubber. Bolted to this setup are the brand's RideControl coilovers. Brabus says the handling is more sports car than pickup thanks to a lower center of gravity and sticky tires, as well as adaptive damper settings.
Other cosmetic changes include a nearly total overhaul of the car's looks, from new front fascias, to carbon trim, to a new hood, side skirts, exhaust tips, and rear valences. Of course, there's also the fact this is a pickup.
Brabus calls the shade you see here "Rocket Grey." Other colors are available, of course. Inside, the interior is almost totally redone with red and black accents in metal and carbon adorning nearly every surface.
The seats are almost totally new as well and feature more carbon fiber inlays. Brabus also went to the trouble of totally reconstructing the center console to add more special accents, branding, and even retractable tables for rear occupants. While only ten will be made, there's no doubt this is one of the wildest Gs Brabus has come up with. We can only imagine the next will be even more insane.
