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.”
