Brabus is back with yet another frankly outrageous car: the Brabus 900 Rocket Edition Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S, otherwise known as the fastest street-legal SUV in the world.

In standard form, the Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S is still an incredibly fast SUV. But as per usual, this wasn’t enough for Brabus, which has tuned the twin-turbo V8 to produce 900 HP and a peak of 922 lb-ft of torque, with the latter actually being limited to 774 lb-ft. This comes as a result of building the car out to a displacement of 4.5 liters and by introducing a new high-performance forced induction system, which comes together to launch the car to 62 MPH in just 3.2 seconds and send it all the way to an electronically limited top speed of 205 MPH — meaning that, technically speaking, it could be more powerful and faster.

Sound is emitted via a stainless steel sports exhaust system with integrated exhaust flaps and two Brabus titanium-carbon tailpipes with a diameter of 90 millimeters each, producing a truly evil noise from the V8. However, a “Coming Home” method has also been fitted so that you don’t wake up the neighbors every time you start the car.

This 2.5-tonne SUV is finished in “Superior Gray” and is fitted with a whole host of carbon fiber elements, reaching from the new front fascia where there’s Brabus branding galore all the way around hitting up the arches, side skirts and mirrors, and ending on the rear where a new diffuser houses the quad pipes alongside a new lip spoiler. As for the wheels, they measure at 24” on each corner and feature the exclusive exposed-carbon aero discs for a unique finish, often reserved for Brabus’ finest machines.

The Brabus 900 Rocket Edition starts at €381,243 EUR (approximately $447,500 USD), and just 25 are due to be built. More can be seen above or on Brabus’ site.
