Porsche 911 Turbo S | Brabus 900 Rocket R

Brabus is best known for modifying and improving opulent Mercedes-Benz SUVs and sedans, but it has just begun to weave its magic on a few Porsche models. The 911 Turbo S Coupe was transformed into a wild beast in the most ambitious Porsche construction to date. The Brabus 900 Rocket R "1 of 25" is what it is known as.

The German tuner's first job was to make the 911 Turbo S Coupe's bodywork seem far more aggressive than it did right off the showroom floor. The Widestar bodykit, composed of lightweight carbon fiber, adds a number of brand-new elements that not only dramatically change the car's appearance but are also rumored to improve aerodynamics.

A fully new front bumper with a noticeable splitter and larger radiator intakes can be seen there. Additionally, Brabus has created new front wheel arches using a carbon fiber and Kevlar composite. These arches not only have a nice appearance, but they also aid in directing hot air away from the brakes. Along with being brand-new, the rear quarter panels now have air curtains just behind the doors. The Rocket R features a unique rear bumper as well, but the dramatic ducktail spoiler that takes the place of the ordinary car's retractable one outshines it.

A pair of 21-inch and 22-inch forged wheels with a five-spoke design and carbon fiber aero discs complete the outward modifications made to the car.

The tuner has labored arduously to increase the performance of the Porsche, as with every successful Brabus build. This was accomplished by removing the stock turbochargers and installing two custom turbochargers. As a result, the car now produces 900 horsepower and can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in under 2.5 seconds. The final component of the performance improvements is an exhaust composed of lightweight Inconel.

Inside, Brabus used headliner made of Alcantara, soft touch black leather with unique stitching, and a variety of other parts that had a Shadow Chrome glaze finish.
