Mind you, the Affalterbach brand's model has long overcome its original status, and it has Brabus to thank for that, as the renowned tuner has turned it into the 900 Rocket Edition. The project was unveiled over two years ago, and back then, Brabus used to refer to it as being "the world's fastest SUV."
It has a heavily modified 4.0-liter bi-turbo V8 under the hood, whose displacement was increased to 4.5 liters. Alongside numerous other modifications, this move has unleashed 887 hp (900 ps/662 kW) available at 6,200 rpm and 774 pound-feet (1,050 Nm) of torque.
Additional highlights include the performance exhaust system with active sound management that won't annoy your neighbors so long as you engage the Coming Home function, improved aerodynamics courtesy of the carbon fiber add-ons, some red trim, and a set of 24-inch wheels with Vredestein tires on its feet. However, you will need the Continental rubber wrapped around the 23-inch alloys to hit the aforementioned maximum speed.
The cockpit sports a few lively touches that are bound to make it stand out even more. On the plus side, though, this vehicle is anything but OTT, and it could mean the world to the right buyer. Speaking of which, there are only 25 units of the Brabus 900 Rocket Edition out there, and since each one is capable of neck-snapping performance, you can bet that those that pop up for sale will change hands for a small fortune.
Case in point, one of them just ended up in the possession of VDM Cars. The social media post embedded below speaks briefly about what makes this Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S Coupe so special, revealing that it is available immediately. As for the pricing, you'll have to reach out to the vendor, as it is being kept close to their chest, probably so it doesn't give you a heart attack. So, how much is the Brabus 900 Rocket Edition worth to you?
