900 HP Mercedes-Maybach S650 Goes to the Geneva Motor Show

Giancarlo Perlas March 11, 2019

We were in for all sorts of surprises at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. New models from Mercedes-Benz were launched, and being the brand’s most popular aftermarket tuner, Brabus also graced the event with its modified Mercedes-Maybach S650 that carries a whopping 900 hp straight from its power core.


The new package of the German tuner for the Mercedes-Maybach S650 is called the Brabus Rocket 900. The luxury supercar features a heavily-modded 6.3-liter (from the original 6.0-liter) biturbo V12 engine. Aside from its 900 hp output, the auto produces 1,106 lb-ft of torque.

The numbers allow the Brabus Rocket 900 to accelerate from 0-62 mph in just 3.7 seconds. Meanwhile, its top speed is electronically-limited to 217 mph depending on the installed wheel/tire combination.

A version of the package is available for the Mercedes-Maybach S560 too. It bumps the 4.0-liter biturbo V8 engine of the car to 650 hp with 605 lb-ft of torque.


Complementing the performance gains are the signature Monoblock wheels of Brabus. The wheels are offered in a 22-inch variant set shod in Continental, Pirelli or Yokohama tires. The show car in Geneva uses the new Monoblock M wheels of the tuner, which are wrapped in 9Jx21 tires in front and 10.5Jx21 tires at the back.


A special all-leather interior adorns the cabin of the Brabus Mercedes-Maybach S560. The sample car at the Geneva Motor Show showcases mocha-colored leather complete with contrasting black piping and diamond quilting on its seat covers as well as some portions of the dashboard and side panels. Another eye-catcher within the car is its starry sky headliner that provides added visual effects with Mercedes’ ambient lighting system.
