This is the new Brabus 900 Rocket R. It’s based on the Porsche 911 Turbo S, only it has much more power and bonkers new styling.
Just 25 of these cars will ever be made, and it wears a price tag of 461,500 Euros. That’s a whopping £400,000.
New Brabus 900 Rocket R design
Brabus is best known for taking already flashy supercars and turning them up to eleven, and the 900 Rocket R is a prime example of this philosophy.
Starting up front, you have a much more aggressive-looking lower bumper than the standard 911 with an extended lower lip spoiler and plenty of exposed carbon fibre. There are also widened wheel arches with huge vents to let hot air out and cool the brakes.
The wheels measure 22 inches at the rear and 21 inches at the front, and they’re forged units unique to the Brabus. They also have carbon fibre aero discs to further help with brake cooling.
There’s yet more exposed carbon on the huge side skirts, as well as the massive rear diffuser. The quad tailpipes are new for this model, as is the fixed duck-tail spoiler. The Brabus script in the rear light bar finishes things off.
New Brabus 900 Rocket R engine and performance
The Brabus 900 Rocket R uses the same 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged flat six as the Porsche 911 Turbo S. In that car, it makes 650hp and 850Nm of torque, and it’ll do 0-60mph in 2.7 seconds.
As you’d expect, Brabus has fettled the 900 Rocket R to get even more power out of it. You get two completely bespoke turbochargers, as well as a performance exhaust and a thorough tune to make 900hp and 1,000Nm of torque.
That’s enough to cut the 0-60mph time down to 2.5 seconds, and it’ll do 0-125mph in 7.2 seconds. The top speed is limited to 211mph, 6mph more than the Turbo S.
New Brabus 900 Rocket R suspension and chassis
When adding this much power to a car, it helps if it can handle it in the corners. The standard 911 already has an excellent suspension setup, however Brabus has still tweaked it a bit.

The 900 Rocket R gets bespoke coilover suspension with new shock absorbers. This setup still works with the Porsche adaptive suspension system, and it still has a nose lift to help you get over tricky speed bumps.
New Brabus 900 Rocket R interior
The basic interior design of the new Brabus 900 Rocket R is the same as the 911 Turbo S, however almost every surface has been re-trimmed to make it look and feel more luxurious.
You get new quilted leather on the seats and door panels, leather on the dashboard and a re-trimmed steering wheel with the Brabus logo in the centre. There is also new high-gloss carbon fibre trim around the place, and bespoke aluminium pedals.
New Brabus 900 Rocket R price and release date
The new Brabus 900 Rocket R is available to order now, but you’ll have to be quick if you want one on your driveway. Just 25 of these bonkers cars will be made.
There’s a hefty price to pay for this exclusivity as well. The Rocket R starts from 461,500 Euros, which is nearly £400,000. Start messing around with custom touches and you’ll push the price up even further than this.
