The all-new BRABUS 900 Rocket Edition, based on the Mercedes-Benz GLE 63 S 4MATIC+ Coupé, is touted as the world’s fastest street-legal SUV, or at least on the petrol side of things. It’s designed to be a luxurious daily driver for adventurers and those who don’t mind taking an SUV to the track.
Featuring a heavily modified twin-turbocharged V8 engine generating 888 hp and 774 lb-ft of torque, mated to a 4MATIC+ 9-speed automatic gearbox that sends power to all wheels, enabling it to hit 62 mph in just 3.2-seconds. Other features include a stainless steel high-performance exhaust system with actively controlled valves and active sound management that lets the driver switch between its aggressive V8 growl in ‘Sport’ mode or aquiet whisper in ‘Coming Home’ mode. Two caveats: it will cost you over $447,000 USD and is limited to just 25-units worldwide.

Of course, every buyer of a BRABUS 900 ROCKET Edition can configure the supercar individually in every detail, which naturally also includes the color scheme of the bodywork and the interior,” said the company.
