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.
