Brabus has turned the Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG luxury sedan into a
887-horsepower rocket capable of a 217 mph top speed. It's ready for a debut at
the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.
The performance of the Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG 900 Rocket by Brabus on the road is on the level of a full-blooded top-class sports car. From rest the luxury sedan sprints to 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds. The sprint to 124 mph takes a measly 9.1 seconds. Top speed is in excess of 217 mph (350 km/h).
Bodywork Conversion Kit
It goes without saying that favorable aerodynamics are crucial at the extremely high speeds attained by the Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG 900 Rocket by Brabus. To minimize aerodynamic lift on the front and rear axle and bring them into perfect balance, the Brabus designers developed a sporty-elegantly styled bodywork conversion kit. Like in Formula 1 racing, the components are manufactured from carbon fiber and give the luxury sedan a dynamic visual upgrade while optimizing aerodynamic efficiency.
The front bumper of the S65 is upgraded not only visually with the Brabus front spoiler lip and the front bumper attachments with a markedly sporty clear-coated carbon-fiber finish. The shape optimized in the wind tunnel also reduces lift on the front axle. This measure contributes to further improved handling stability at high speeds.
The Brabus aerodynamic-enhancement concept is rounded out with the Brabus rear spoiler lip and the rear bumper with integrated clear-coated carbon-fiber diffusor and tailor-made cutouts for the Brabus sports exhausts system with two dual tailpipes.
Tailor-made Brabus Monoblock alloys with diameters of 21 inches are available, with tires in size 255/35 ZR21 at the front and 295/30 ZR21 on the rear axle.
There is also a 22-inch Brabus tire/wheel combination. In concert with size 255/30 ZR22 tires on the front axle and 295/25 ZR22 tires at the rear, the Brabus Monoblock G "Platinum Edition" forged wheels of sizes 9Jx22 and 10Jx22 make full use of the available space in the wheel wells.
Interior with iBusiness Multimedia System
The Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG 900 Rocket by Brabus is optionally available with the Brabus "iBusiness" multimedia system. It uses the latest generation of Apple computer technology for entertainment and global communication via phone and internet.
The Brabus "iBusiness" multimedia system integrates an iPad mini tablet computer into the rear compartment. To this end, a special center console was developed, which is positioned between the two individual seats in the rear. It features a docking station and holds the tablet securely in place when not in use. It also recharges the battery of the computer.
The entire system is integrated into the Brabus fine leather interior. It sports a combination of light-colored vellum and black. The passengers are welcomed to the interior by stainless-steel scuff plates with backlit Brabus logo, whose color alternates between red and white.
