This is the definition of what happens when you just can’t get enough horsepower

This year, the two companies took things even further and came up with the Brabus 800. As you guessed, this is also an updated G63, but with 800 horsepower under the hood.

With a top speed of 205 mph, the Brabus 900 Rocket Edition becomes the fastest SUV in the world

Brabus’ previous Rocket 900 program was based on the Mercedes-AMG GT63 S. Now, the same treatment was applied to the Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S Coupe. And no, it is not because the SUV’s standard 603 horsepower are not enough, but because Brabus wants to continue its tradition of building the fastest cars in the world.

And now it’s time to meet the Brabus 900 Rocket Edition or, actually, the world’s fastest SUV!

A Very Special 1994 Mercedes W124 Brabus 6.5 Recently Emerged From The Shadows

A Very Special 1994 Mercedes W124 Brabus 6.5 Recently Emerged From The Shadows

This 1 of 1 W124 Brabus 6.5 is even more special than the 500E and E60 AMG "Hammer", and you probably didn’t even know about It

The Mercedes W124 is praised for its build quality and the ability to survive just about anything (or so they say). When it comes to performance versions, the 500E is the first to come to mind, since it technically laid the foundation for a future lineup of V8-powered Mercedes performance sedans. Then came the E60 AMG “Hammer” with a bigger V-8 and more power. The Brabus 6.5, however, is even more special. In addition to being even more powerful, there’s only one in existence.

2021 Brabus 800 - The Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S Receives The Brabus Treatment

800 horses, 23-inch wheels, and a sports exhaust system are just few of the Brabus 800 GLE 63’s accolades

2021 Mercedes-AMG G63 900 Rocket Edition by Brabus

The G63 Rocket Edition by Brabus comes with carbon fiber components, almost 900 horses under the hood, sub-four-second 0-60 mph time, and costs over $500,000

Brabus products are some of the most expensive aftermarket builds that you can buy today. If you can get anything south of half-a-million dollars, then it’s a bargain. The company specializes in Mercedes products and has created tens of iterations of its popular models in the past. But, one product that Brabus can’t get enough of is the G-Class. In all fairness, no one can get enough of it. So, can’t really blame Brabus here.

Anyway, the German tuner has come up with yet another G63 build, called the Brabus 900 Rocket Edition. It comes with an exclusive exterior shade, carbon fiber components on the exterior, and power boosts that make this boxy SUV sprint to 62 mph in under four seconds. How about that!

With specs like 780+ horses and 0-60 mph in three seconds, Brabus has elevated this top-spec AMG E-Class model to unimaginable levels

When you think of high-end aftermarket companies, some of the top names that come to mind include Hennessey, Mansory, and Brabus. While Hennessey is known for outright performance builds and Mansory for the most radical and unusual mods, Brabus is a blend of the two. It is back with yet another Mercedes build, this time, for the AMG E63 S called the Brabus 800. New wheels and aerodynamic elements on the outside, plush treatment on the inside, and power enhancement to the existing V-8 make this Brabus build an absolute beast.

Like ABT is to Audi, Brabus is to Mercedes. These are the tuners that come to mind when you talk about the respective brands. Brabus is here with another creation called the Rocket 900 “One of Ten” that’s based on the Mercedes-AMG GT63 S. The Brabus model comes with changes inside and out, but the biggest changes have happened under the hood. The car didn’t just receive some extra horses and torque; Brabus also increased the displacement of the V-8 powerhouse. The car is super-exclusive and only 10 examples of it will be built.

How to Squeeze An Extra 279 HP Out Of A 600 HP V-12 Engine

Go to Bottrop, Germany, and knock at Brabus’ door to find out first-hand

Brabus is the biggest and most famous independent Mercedes-Benz tuner out there and the Germans have been fettling with products sporting the three-pointed star since the late ’70s which is why we were not surprised to find out that one of their most powerful creations, the $400,000 Rocket 900, puts out almost 280 horsepower more than the Mercedes-Maybach S650 it’s based on. Here’s how Brabus does it.

2020 Mercedes-Benz EQC by Brabus

2020 Mercedes-Benz EQC by Brabus

This is a classic example that tuning and customizing EVs at this point is easier said than done

Brabus seems to be adapting to the “rEVolution”. After working on a butt load of Mercedes-Benz’s cars, Brabus has now laid its hands on the company’s first all-electric crossover – the EQC. The tuner has customized EVs from its subsidiary, Smart Fortwo, but this is the first time it is working on an EV with the three-pointed star logo. The EQC has been given typical Brabus-treatment. There are changes made to the exterior as well as the powertrain. The interior in the stock crossover is plush as it is and Brabus hasn’t messed around with it other than adding a few things. But, the main question is – are aftermarket companies prepared to customize EVs already, or is it too soon?

2020 Merecedes G-Class 800 Adventure XLP by Brabus

A high-priced SUV-turned-pickup-truck with the ultimate off-roading prowess

Another auto show and Brabus comes up with another vehicle. This time, the aftermarket company has come up with the so-called Brabus 800 Adventure XLP that is based on the Mercedes-AMG G63. That’s right, the SUV with a pickup bed is debuting at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show.

The prestigious aftermarket company is known for its ability to make your pocket a lot lighter once you’ve bought its products and this time also it’s no different. The Brabus 800 Adventure XLP features exquisite exterior and interior cues and a powerful mill under the hood. Despite the changes, does it warrant a sticker price of over half-a-million dollars?

2020 Smart EQ Fortwo Ultimate E Cabrio by Brabus

2020 Smart EQ Fortwo Ultimate E Cabrio by Brabus

A peppy Smart that’s friendly to the environment might not be such an outlandish proposition after all

Brabus, the famed German tuner that’s made a name for itself by extracting ludicrous amounts of power out of some already very potent V-8s and V-12s that were at the heart of Mercedes-Benz’s lineup of sedans and sports cars, brought to the Frankfurt Auto Show in 2019 a serving of re-heated stew. This is, by all intents and purposes, the Smart EQ Fortwo Ultimate E Shadow Edition Cabrio we’ve seen already earlier this year at Geneva, minus the Gunmetal Grey paint. It’s got just as much power, the same oversized rims, the same hunched widebody, and the same tacky details like the illuminated door sills. You may never see one with your own two eyes since Brabus only plans to sell 28 (fewer than the amount of Ferrari 250 GTOs in the world) but you can’t blame Brabus for only making a couple of dozen of these since it has already oversaturated the market with the 28 units of the Shadow Edition. Granted, this one is cheaper by a few grand although at €59,000 in Europe it’s not cheap in the grand scheme of things.

So, let’s say you’re in the market for an ultra-small city car that’s also 100% electric and features a folding roof. What does that say about you? Well, on paper, you’re a person who could do without the worries related with having to find a parking spot in the bustling downtown area of the city while also trying to do his or her part in reducing pollution - all with a dribble of fun added to the experience by the open-air feel of a cabriolet. What all this means is that the person that would be in the market for a Smart EQ Fortwo Cabriolet isn’t looking for what the Brabus Ultimate E is offering, i.e. big wheels, more power, and less practicality because of the lowered ride height and the fact that it doesn’t come with a bigger battery. In spite of all that, it exists and it’s not even the only Brabus-tuned Smart Fortwo on the European market, there tamer options in the German company’s portfolio if the widebody doesn’t necessarily float your boat.

The super-exclusive, one-of-a-kind G-Class SUV you must own in this lifetime

These days, V-12s are a big deal and every enthusiast wants to grab one for themselves before they go extinct; in exchange for some big bucks, obviously.

But, in return, you become a proud owner of a super-exclusive vehicle that is comparable to absolutely nothing.

Brabus’ latest creation is this V-12 Mercedes G-Class off-roader that is being premiered at the Frankfurt Auto Show. Called the Brabus G V12 900 "One of Ten”, this SUV is the perfect ode to the V-12s that will be retired soon from Mercedes’ stable.

Now, it’s the G500’s time in the spotlight, and in true Brabus fashion, the aftermarket prescription is exactly what the doctor ordered.

2018 Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S by Brabus

McLaren 600LT Power In A Compact Crossover Is The Definition Of Madness

Almost every year Brabus prepares a comprehensive set of improvements for a number of Mercedes-Benz and Mercedes-AMG vehicles. They usually present them at the Auto Shows in Geneva, Paris, or Frankfurt. This year, with the Paris Motor Show nearing, Brabus revealed its new Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S. It is a small compact crossover with an insane 4.0-liter engine, now tricked out by Brabus. This car seems to be as close to contradictions as humanly possible. It is a family crossover (sensible at that), but with such a monstrosity under the bonnet, you’d feel threatened by it even if you drove in a Ferrari F430.

The Brabus Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S basically represents everything that is bad with the car market today, and then it represents everything that is awesome as well.

You know what? I don’t care if you have all the hate in the world for the SUV/Crossovers or whatever. This thing is awesome, and you will learn why here.
