Brabus is no stranger to the boisterous fitment of today’s most performance-focused vehicles, and when it comes to luxurious platforms that are equally-as-impressive off the track, Mercedes-AMG’s GT 63 S 4Matic+ is a force to be reckoned with. That’s why it makes perfect sense that the German tuner has turned to the car as a basis for its most recent endeavor, the Rocket 900.
The Brabus Rocket 900 is a formidable sedan that’s been outfitted with a handful of track-savvy parts, making it a perfect addition to the brand’s long-running Rocket line. To complement the car’s powerful twin-turbocharged V8, the 900 takes on an enhanced, 4.5-liter metric, as well as a long-stroke billet crankshaft, pistons, rods, and 84-millimeter cylinder bores. As is the case with many vehicles that go under the Brabus knife, the 4Matic+ has been treated to a bespoke ECU tune, forced induction system, and compressor, garnering a mouthwatering 888 horsepower in the process. This, paired with the car’s new carbon fiber ram-air intake system, widebody, and Monoblock Z Platinum Edition wheels, set it apart as a competitive, track-inspired edition that’s well-suited to the Rocket name. It won’t come cheap, however. Expect to pay upward of $506,000 if you’re interested in acquiring one of the 10 models slated for production.
