Brabus Will Make Just Ten Of These

Based on the Mercedes-AMG G63, this thoroughly revamped pickup is called the P 900 Rocket Edition.

Those who follow Brabus will agree that the Mercedes-AMG G63 is, quite possibly, the tuner’s favourite vehicle. Over the years, we’ve seen a wide variety of projects based on the off-roader with the three-pointed star. And now, we have another one. Brabus calls it the P 900 Rocket Edition. It isn’t in the traditional SUV shape. A pickup truck is how one would define it. The tuner says that its latest creation is “the biggest and boldest chapter of the Brabus Rocket legacy”. Unfortunately, the production is limited to just ten units.

Powering the performance-oriented pickup is not Mercedes’ 4.0-litre V8. Brabus has replaced it with its own twin-turbocharged 4.5-litre V8, which offers 900hp and 1,250Nm of peak torque. Compared to the standard G63, the Brabus P 900 Rocket Edition has 323hp/400Nm more oomph. In other words, the extra half-a-litre cubic capacity and the new turbochargers add nearly as much power as the BMW X5 xDrive 40i has in total.

A 9-speed automatic harnesses the pickup’s power and transmits to all four wheels. And if the mood takes you, the Brabus P 900 Rocket Edition can hit 100kmph from a standstill in 3.7 seconds. Keep the pedal on the right pressed hard, and the speedometer will keep going until it reads 280kmph. If you want to go faster, the electronic speed governors will need addressing. Brabus has also equipped it with a stainless-steel exhaust system with full-carbon tailpipe finishers. In the mix are actively-controlled valves and a ‘Rocket’ launch ambience light.

Check out the alloys! Brabus calls them the Monoblock Z “Platinum Edition” Aero-Disc forged wheels. Spanning 24 inches in diameter, they are teamed with Continental rubber. And the Brabus RideControl aluminium Coilover suspension helps adjust the ride height by up to 45mm.

Other than converting an SUV into a pickup, Brabus has made several changes to the exterior design. That includes the “Rocket Grey” paint, multiple Brabus logos, a black roll bar and carbon bumpers, hood, door handles, ORVM caps and trim strips. The use of carbon is also found in the rear diffuser, fender attachments, RamAir intake grille and front spoiler.

The unmissable lunacy carries inside the cabin, with an all-black theme and red accents on the doors, steering wheel, dashboard, pedals and seats. Accompanying that theme are the headliner and A, B, and C pillars draped in Alcantara, while the steering wheel, dashboard, floor protectors and the centre console are in leather. Enhancing the comfort quotient are two integrated tables in the rear centre console, storage for wireless mobile charging, USB ports, a cool box and reading lights. And there are elements with ‘77’ signets, which pay tribute to Brabus’ founding year – 1977.

So, there you have it. The Brabus P 900 Rocket Edition is quite simply a “want one” kind of thing. At least that is what I think. What is your take?
