The first Brabus Rocket, based on the first edition of the Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG, has been officially unveiled back in 2006 and it was capable of reaching a top speed of 365.7 km/h (222.7 mph) and now, seven years later, we get to visually enjoy the 2013 Brabus Rocket 800, which is one of just three units made, with this one setting you back for a whopping 285,000 GBP, in the UK.
The exterior design of the vehicle is getting a new front fascia with massive air intakes, a rear diffuser, a rear wing, wider wheel arches and a set of ultra-light Brabus Monoblock F Platinum Edition wheels. As far as the engine goes, this is coming with a twin turbocharged V12 unit, which is producing a total output of 800 HP and it has a peak torque of 1,420 Nm, which has been reduced to 1,100 Nm to reduce wheel spin in every gear. The engine is mated to a 7-speed sports transmission. The 0 to 100 km/h sprint takes just 3.7 seconds and top speed stands at 370 km/h. The model in question has only travelled for 10 miles.
