Mercedes-Benz S 65 Coupe on steroids is powered by a 6.3 V12 twin-turbo increased-displacement engine rated at 662 kW / 900 HP (887 bhp) and producing 1,500 Nm (1,106 lb-ft) of torque, this exclusive supercar is one of the most powerful and fastest 2+2-seaters in the world with a top speed in excess of 350 km/h (217 mph).
The transformation of the twin-turbo V12 engine from the S 65 starts in the BRABUS engine shop, which is equipped with state-of-the-art machinery. To realize the displacement increase from standard 6.0 to 6.3 liters (366 to 384 cubic inch), the shop bores out the twelve cylinders and fits them with the matching forged pistons. In addition, BRABUS installs a special billet crankshaft with longer stroke and precision-balanced special piston rods.
Furthermore, the engine peripherals are upgraded with tailor-made high-performance components. The two production turbos are replaced with BRABUS turbos with larger compressor unit and turbine. The new turbochargers are adapted to the two cylinder heads with modified exhaust manifolds. The conversion also includes larger down pipes with a diameter of 80 millimeters (3.1 in), free-flow metal catalysts and a BRABUS high-performance exhaust with actively controlled butterfly valves. This exhaust system offers active sound management at the touch of a button on the steering wheel. In addition, the two ceramic-coated dual designer tailpipes of the stainless-steel sport exhaust, which on the show car for the Geneva Motor Show 2016 sport a black satin finish, also add some thrilling visual highlights.
Collectively, all these measures make the BRABUS ROCKET 900 6.3 V12 twin-turbo increased-displacement engine one of the most potent power units on the market. The turbocharged twelve-cylinder engine churns out 662 kW / 900 HP (887 bhp) at a low 5,500 rpm and produces a peak torque of 1,500 Nm (1,106 lb-ft) at 4,200 rpm. However, in the interest of the longevity of the powertrain peak torque is limited electronically to 1,200 Nm (884 lb-ft).
The power is channeled to the rear wheels by a seven-speed automatic transmission modified to handle the tremendous power and a BRABUS high-performance limited-slip differential with a locking rate of 40 percent. Thanks to the BRABUS RACE aluminum paddle shifters on the steering
wheel, the transmission can also be shifted manually.
The BRABUS 900 ROCKET Coupe delivers a performance equaled by only a few top-class sports cars. The 2+2-seater accelerates from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.7 seconds and reaches a speed of 200 km/h (124 mph) after just 9.1 seconds. The top speed is in excess of 350 km/h (217 mph), a fact accounted for by the BRABUS speedometer whose scale ends at 400 km/h (250
