Brabus 800 'Rocket' Debuting At Frankfurt Auto Show

Details on the new Brabus 800 'Rocket' have been released, just ahead of the car's official debut at the Frankfurt Auto Show this week.

Based on the current Mercedes-Benz CLS, the 'Rocket' apparently boasts a a V-12 under the hood that develops approximately 800 horsepower and a whopping 811 lb-ft of torque (1,100 NM in Euro parlance).

According to German automotive source, that's enough to enable this four-door leviathan to do the 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) dash in just 3.7 seconds, while a top speed of some 370 km/h (230 mph) is apparently possible.

Of course being a Brabus, besides the outrageous performance, the exterior has naturally been tweaked, an in-your-face front fascia sports massive air intakes on the lower valance; while a forward thrusting grille with a big 'B' logo; along with bulging front and rear fenders plus a rear deck spoiler and diffuser complete the ensemble. Massive, yet ultra-light Brabus Monoblock F-Platinum Edition cross spoke rims, fill the wheel wells in true Brabus style.

Inside, cabin upgrades are par for the course, though with official details from Brabus not yet revealed we can't say exactly what they are. Nevertheless, for a projected MSRP of some 429,000 (roughly $592,800) for the car; excluding taxes, they ought to be rather special.

Weighing in at around two tons, the 800 'Rocket' promises to be the fastest four-door sedan in the world when it goes on sale. If you want one, you'd better contact Brabus as soon as possible.
