It'll leave the Lamborghini Urus eating its dust.

Barely a month seems to go by without Brabus unleashing another AMG-beating, tire-shredding Mercedes. In July, we got the GLE Coupe with nearly 800 horsepower, and that was preceded in June by the Brabus 900 Rocket Edition of the G63 which is a 900-hp monster. Now, another 900 Rocket Edition has been announced but this time, those nearly 900 horses are powering the smaller AMG GLE 63 S Coupe. As a result, the latest creation from Brabus is said to be the quickest street-legal SUV on the planet. It had its world premiere at the 2021 Monaco Yacht Show and only 25 examples will be made. As you'd expect, an eye-watering price is included as standard.

This rocket of an SUV still uses a twin-turbocharged V8 like the standard GLE 63 S, but the displacement has been increased to 4.5 liters and it receives a high-performance forced induction system. Outputs are now 900 PS (888 hp) and 922 lb-ft of torque, although Brabus says torque has been limited to 774 lb-ft. For perspective, the regular GLE 63 S Coupe makes 603 hp and 627 lb-ft. The 900 Rocket Edition is claimed to reach 62 mph from rest in just 3.2 seconds before hitting a limited top speed of 205 mph, making it quicker than the Lamborghini Urus in both metrics. However, you’ll need the 23-inch wheels to reach this top speed.

Based on those numbers, it could potentially reach 60 mph in a whisker under three seconds. The stainless-steel high-performance exhaust includes a ‘Coming Home’ mode if you don’t want your neighbors dialing 911 in a hurry.

To complement its immense power and performance, Brabus has given the 900 Rocket Edition a makeover too. Outside, it rides on 24-inch forged wheels with carbon aero discs. This may be an SUV but the low-profile tires look about as well suited to off-roading as the Mitsubishi Mirage is to being a member of the presidential motorcade.

The Brabus badge sits proudly on the grille in place of the Mercedes emblem, and there is glossy carbon-fiber trim wherever you look. The grille itself features red detailing and the same red color has been applied to those outrageous wheels. At the back, there are quad-exit exhaust outlets, red Brabus badging, and a spoiler.

The cabin has been finished in a mix of Brabus fine leather and carbon trim inlays. Unfortunately, what could have been a classy affair has been ruined by tacky red detailing that is completely overdone. The air vent surrounds, speaker grilles, pedals, and even the window switches are all finished in red. If Brabus had just reined it in a bit, the interior would’ve been more palatable. Then again, the tuner isn’t known for perfecting the art of subtlety.

So, what will the fastest SUV in the world cost you? The price before taxes is €381,243 which works out to around $447,000.
