AMG makes some of the coolest, most powerful Benzes, and Maybach is known for extreme luxury and comfort. BRABUS is a whole ‘nother beast that takes both to an extreme.
Today, we're gonna take look at the science behind this car's V12 engine and how its able to propel this 5600 pound machine up to 60 mph in less than 4 seconds, how the intelligent suspension system can see what's coming before the driver does, and how this Rocket 900 compares to the car it shares its DNA with... the Mercedes-Maybach S650.

    • if you beleive it or not but it's a German brand so you pronounce it german as well and "may" is pronounced the right way. just the "back" which is actually a "Bach" is pronounced wrongly because nearly no English speaking person can pronounce "ch" the way Germans do.

  • Just a word of perspective for the sea of Mercedes heads and types drooling at any euro "elite" rides....uh, all you have to do if you want some REAL performance far and away above anything like what is shown here. Just think euro heads and the hoard of third world and quasi third world drooling fans....just think if you simply opened the hood, ash canned the Maybach mill and simply put in a GM aftermarket big block. Presto, 2500 HP!!!!!! FULLY STREET DRIVABLE. Exactly as comfortable idle and life? Well...who cares. A simple application of standard American big block technology totally blows away anything the euro heads ever dream of... Hey, want to drive the import jerks totally insane? Ask one of them what would happen with some Sonny`s 1000......instant meltdown

  • The Pan-American Road Race (Carrera Panamericana) I think you folks there should do an "Up to speed" or SOMETHING on this one. There are 2 documentaries on HRworld: @ : THE LAST GREAT ROAD RACE | La Carrera Panamericana [Feature Doc] And, @ : Classic Races - Ep02 : Carrera Panamericana (documentary) HD La Carrera Panamericana = The Pan-American (road) Race. From October 28th to November 4th 1988That ran from the USA / Mexico border to Tuxtla Gutiérrez, Chiapas in Mexico. If you do a little Google mapping, You will find that Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua in Mexico is just south of El Paso Texas Very near the USA border. With a little more G. Mapping, the race ran approximately 1,700 (Approximately 2,700 km.) Miles down the length of Mexico! Almost to Guatemala In Mexico. So that road race covered that distance in 8 days from Friday October 28th 1988 (I Just looked up the 1988 calendar.) through Friday November 4th 1988, I'm not too sure on other years it may have been run. Your 24 Hours of Le Mans does not hold a candle to what this one was!

  • Ok, so whoever wrote the text for this video knows very little about engines. I was cringing half of the time. For instance; explaining the alusil cylinder surfacing process like it's something special and not used in 90% of modern econoboxes. Or equating cylinder boring to honing for crosshatch. Or saying that the gold foil is there for heat dissipation, not repelling heat from critical places. Etc. Do better next time, Donut.
