The second generation of the powerful CLS Brabus Rocket is almost here and after we first presented you a at the beginning of this month, the German Company’s website released an official image and to be honest, you can put a stick in it and eat it like an ice cream, that’s how good looking it is.
Even if the German aftermarket specialists at Brabus didn’t reveal any details about the new generation of the Rocket, the word is that it will pass the 800 horsepower barrier and will deliver an impressive 1.420 Nm of torque, with the engine being mated to the AMG Speedshift MCT seven-speed sports transmission.
Rumors are that the 0 to 100 km/h sprint time of the new Brabus Rocket takes just 3.7 seconds and CLS is in the supercar territory with its top speed too, 370 km/h or 230 mph.
As a reminder, the old Brabus Rocket had 730 horsepower and 1.100 Nm of torque (810 lf-ft), but this last number has been limited because the original one was 1.320 Nm or 970 lb-ft. The old Rocket could accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4 seconds and from 0 to 200 km/h in 10.5 seconds, hitting a top speed of 365.7 km/h (227.2 mph), but this has also been electronically limited to 350 km/h.
With the Frankfurt Motor Show officially opening its gates tomorrow and the German aftermarket specialist revealing a new image of the Rocket today can mean that Brabus will unveil its four-door coupe at the European event. But then again this can be just a coincidence too. We’ll have to stay tuned to the Frankfurt Motor Show to find out more.
