German Tuners Brabus thrive to achieve maximum engine performance, which has quite become their domain for recognition. Mercedes could not have found a better lot than this one for their tuning ventures. At the beginning of this year, they tuned a Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class W219 model, dubbed Brabus Rocket to set a new world record for the worlds fastest street legal Sedan at 362.4 km/h.
As though unquenched by that achievement Brabus has improved on their record to enable the Rocket, clock a new world record at 365.7 Km/h. A twin-turbo Brabus SV12 S engine powers the rocket to produce a whopping 730 hp at 5100-rpm and peak torque of 1320 Nm, electronically limited to 1100 Nm at 2100rpm.
To achieve this improved speed the Brabus rocket endured a number of alterations. It was outfitted with larger turbochargers, a better intercooling system further supported by a stainless -steel high performance exhaust system with four exhaust pipes and low backpressure metal channels. These enhancements enabled the improved Rocket to achieve the Euro IV Emission standards.
The top speed is electronically limited to 350Km/h. The Rocket is one of the fastest accelerating sedans in the world with a 0 to 100 Km/h timing of 4 seconds. The whopping 730 horses are transmitted through a modified five-speed automatic transmission, which is up-boosted with the usage of top-notch lubricants from ARAL (technological partners of Brabus).
Brabus understands the need of high-quality suspension in such scorching sedans thus the Brabus Suspension engineers in collaboration with Bilstein have developed a custom-calibrated height-adjustable coil-over suspension for the Rocket.
Brabus Rocket is the perfect material for those drivers who crave for thrilling race track experiences on Conventional Streets with minimum risk incorporated. It gives you a thrilling experience on the common Blacktops with a high-degree of safety; probably the Lamborghini Murcielago creators should draw some inspiration from Brabus.
