Brabus Rocket Cranks Mercedes Power to the 887HP Edge

The top end of the luxury super-sedan market is effectively a game of numbers: who can pack the most power in the best dressed package. German tuning house Brabus knows a thing or two about sky-high horsepower and it's latest offering is no deviation.  Meet the Brabus Rocket 900: the 887 horsepower, 1,106 lb-ft of torque, 217 mph twisted cousin of the Mercedes S65. Whilst being ridiculously quick, it's also a car designed for the business elite. Complete with Brabus' iBusiness infotainment suite, it might just be one of the fastest mobile offices in the world.

Modifications include a new billet crankshaft with a longer stroke, a cylinder bore eked out to 6.3-liters, and two hefty turbochargers to replace the production pinwheels. Power gets sent through a revised seven-speed automatic gearbox with a new limited slip differential. All totaled, the engine and drivetrain modifications will 'rocket' the Brabus 900 from zero to 60 mph in a slight 3.7 seconds and onto the 120 mph mark in a speedy 9.1 ticks of the second hand. And it ought to sound properly vicious through every gear change thanks to Brabus' reworked butterfly valve exhaust.

Tucked behind the front passenger's seat is what Brabus calls its iBusiness system, which features an iPad mini connected to a Mac mini central computer, from which we suspect many types of business can be performed... all while screaming across the autobahn at 217 miles per hour. Then again, you'll have to be quite the business pro to afford one. The Brabus Rocket will retail for a stunning €347,719 (or around $390,600 at today's rates).
