If there’s one color that embodies everything luxury, it has to be gold. This is why it’s fitting that Brabus has created the Rocket 900 “Desert Gold” Edition, a culmination of the color gold and a four-door German supercar based on the Mercedes-AMG S65.
On the outside of the car is a suite of bodywork that gives the Rocket 900 its menacing appearance. These components are primarily crafted out of carbon fiber and have a naked carbon fiber appearance. Contrasting with these dark components is the car’s gold paint finish. Mounted on the car is a set of black Brabus Monoblock F “Platinum Edition” high-tech cross-spoke forged wheels with a golden pinstripe that circles the wheels. These wheels are shod with 255/35 ZR 21 tires at the front and 295/30 ZR 21 at the rear.

Powering these wheels is the twin-turbo V12 engine found in the S65. However, the Brabus engine shop installed a new crankshaft, forged pistons, and custom connecting rods, increasing the displacement from 6.0-liters to 6.3. With these modifications and many others, this car has 900 hp and 1,106 lb-ft of torque at the ready. This power will rocket the Rocket 900 from 0-62 mph in 3.7 seconds, while 0-124 mph takes just 9.1 seconds.
Inside the Golden Mercedes, the black and gold theme continues in quite the fashion. Black and gold Mastik leather covers a majority of the cabin’s surfaces and the sight of this contrasting upholstery is phenomenal. Special “900” embroidery is included on the headrests, displaying the amount of power that resides underneath the hood. Brabus even coated interior elements in gold in order to continue the theme on every surface.
Altogether, from its inside to its outside, the Brabus Rocket 900 “Desert Gold” Edition is a bonafide piece of automotive art.
