There was no shortage of opulence at the Dubai International Motor Show, and Brabus‘ contribution to the pageantry took the form of this “Desert Gold” Rocket 900, based on the Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG. Under the hood is a twin-turbo V12 6.3-liter engine, capable of 900 PS and 1,106 lb-ft of torque (although Brabus has electronically limited the torque to 884 lb-ft to maintain the reliability of the specially adapted 7-speed automatic transmission). The resulting numbers finds the rear-wheel-drive sedan hitting a 0-62 mph sprint in 3.7 seconds and a top speed of more than 217 mph. The car’s Desert Gold interior is matched by plenty of gold accents throughout the interior.
