At the 2016 Geneva Motor Show the Bottrop-based tuner Brabus unveiled a new version of their heavily tricked-out Mercedes-Maybach featuring the Rocket 900 and iBusiness packages. Pitched as the ultimate super sport, super luxury saloon car, the Brabus Maybach Rocket 900 costs about half a million dollars.
The heart of the Brabus Maybach Rocket 900 is an increased-displacement 6.3 V12 twin-turbo which develops 900 HP (887 bhp) and a peak torque of 1,500 Nm (1,106 lb-ft).

Brabus Maybach comes with a limitless variety of types of leather and Alcantara in any desired color, and a range of wood or carbon inlays, also available in any color you desire.
