Of course, this bad boy’s piece of resistance is his larger-bore 4.5-liter twin-turbo V8 engine. Brabus replaced the two factory turbos with their own units, while an active exhaust system works to wake the beast with the push of a button. With 662 kW and 1250 Nm, the Brabus 900 Rocket Edition will go from 0 to 100 km / h in just 3.2 seconds.
