900 horsepower, 1,500Nm of torque and a top speed of 350kmph… These aren’t numbers that one usually associates with a road car, especially not from a four seater convertible. Yet it is exactly what has happened over at Mercedes Benz tuners Brabus, who now have the world’s most powerful four seater cabriolet on offer. It’s aptly named the Brabus Rocket 900 Cabrio, and is easily the quickest way to get all your head hair plucked away while feeling totally great about it at 350kmph!
To achieve this Brabus took the most powerful engine that they could get their hands on – The 612bhp biturbo from the Mercedes Benz S65 cabriolet, and then went about changing almost everything on the inside. The 6.0-litre V12 has been increased to 6.3-litres in displacement, while all of the internals have been strengthened. Brabus added forged pistons, billet-steel connecting rods and also a special long stroke camshaft in addition to upgrading the turbochargers, exhaust system, and the air-fuel intake system.
The result of all of the above is savage, hypercar-equalling power output of 900 horsepower at 5,500rpm and brutal torque of 1,500Nm (restricted to 1,200Nm) at 4,200rpm. All of this power goes directly to the rear wheels via a specially designed limited slip differential. This means that not only is the Brabus Rocket 900 Cabrio the most powerful road-legal, four seater convertible, it is also a ready-to-go car for any drift event right off the showroom floor!
Watch out for the Brabus Rocket 900 Cabrio as it makes its world premiere at the Frankfurt Motor Show on September 14, 2017.
