    The long-awaited thousand “horses”: the Brabus Rocket 1000 hybrid liftback is presented

    The German tuning studio Brabus presented the first model in its history whose power reached the four-digit mark. The Brabus Rocket 1000 is based on the stock Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S E-Performance plug-in hybrid liftback.

    The Rocket line from Brabus consists of the most powerful and most expensive tuning projects. For a long time, the peak power for “missiles” was 900 hp, but now the barrier of 1000 hp has been taken, which, to tell the truth, is not something outstanding today, especially taking into account the fact that this is a combined power hybrid power plant, and not just an internal combustion engine. For comparison, let's say that the American studio RENNtech squeezes more than 1200 hp from the V8 engine of the M177 series on the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 liftback. without any hybridization, and Brabus has so far been satisfied with a hybrid thousand – they say, the milestone has been passed, we are moving on.
