Aftermarket tuning company Brabus unveiled an outrageous and over the top "Desert Gold" Edition of the Mercedes-Benz Rocket 900 at the Dubai Motor Show, reported Car Buzz.

The German firm was founded in 1977 by Klaus Brackman and Bodo Buschmann, who combined the first three letters of their last names to create the name: Brabus. The company is famous for increasing horsepower and torque to achieve maximum engine performance.

Brabus lived up to its reputation with the Rocket 900, which has a modified S65 AMG’s 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12 and delivers 900 hp and 884 lb-ft of electronically-limited torque, noted 3D Car shows. The engine allows the car to travel from zero to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 9.1 seconds. The top speed is in excess of 350 km/h (217 mph).

Another customized feature of the Rocket 900 is its gold tint. As an homage to the desert state of Dubai, Brabus painted the exterior and 300 parts of the interior with the same "Desert Gold" shade created specifically for this high-performance sedan.

Onlookers stunned by the beauty of the four-door luxury sedan can appreciate the Carbon aerodynamic-enhancement components and high-gloss black bodywork components. There's a prestigious Brabus Flagship Store in Dubai, where customers can either buy or order this customized car.

Check out the finishings below, which include fine leather interior with gold and black leather trim and gold-colored seams in a quilting pattern.
