VOLK­SWA­GEN WOES

Qatar Today - - AFFAIRS > AUTO NEWS -

The BRABUS Rocket 900 “Desert Gold” Edi­tion was un­veiled at the 2015 Dubai In­ter­na­tional Auto Show.

BRABUS added its car­bon aero­dy­namic-en­hance­ment com­po­nents to the project, and a set of black BRABUS Monoblock F “Plat­inum Edi­tion” 21inch al­loys, with a gold pin­strip­ing that goes ex­tremely well with the car's ex­te­rior. The cus­tom “Desert Gold” paint job is spe­cial as it was specif­i­cally cre­ated for this high-per­for­mance project. The bon­net hides the 900PS 6.3 V12 twin-turbo en­gine, which en­ables the lux­ury sedan to do 0 to 100 km/ h (62 mph) in just 3.7 sec­onds, 0 to 200 km/ h (124 mph) in just 9.1 sec­onds, and reach a top speed of over 350 km/ h (217 mph).

Volk­swa­gen Group is deal­ing with a slow­down in new-car or­ders in the wake of ad­mit­ting this month that it un­der­stated fuel us­age and car­bon diox­ide

emis­sions. “There is cau­tion in buy­ing,” Bernd Oster­loh, the com­pany's works coun­cil chief, told re­porters. “The CO2 is­sue has trig­gered a greater cri­sis of con­fi­dence [in VW prod­ucts] than the ni­tro­gen

[ox­ide emis­sions] is­sue.”
