BRABUS has a knack of transforming already-excellent exotic and luxury cars into custom masterpieces.

Over recent years we’ve seen some incredible creations from the German tuning company and it’s hard to pick a favorite.

That being said, its latest creation – the BRABUS Rocket 1000 – certainly stands out from the crowd.

Starting with its looks, the BRABUS Rocket 1000 wears a body kit in exposed carbon fiber.

Not only does the kit add performance-inspired looks and aerodynamic enhancements, it’s mean as hell too.

To top it all off, the car sits on custom monoblock wheels that are 21 inches at the front and 22 at the rear.

It’s not just the exterior of the BRABUS Rocket 1000 that’s been tweaked, though.

The interior is also an exquisite and a bespoke BRABUS masterpiece creation.

As to be expected from BRABUS, there’s no shortage of carbon fiber adorning the cockpit, as well as the company’s signature badging on the seat backs.

But where the BRABUS Rocket 1000 really stands out is what’s under the hood.

Based on the Mercedes-AMG GT S E-PERFORMANCE, it used hybrid technology to achieve incredible performance.

There’s a 4.5-liter twin-turbocharged V8 paired to an electric drive system combing for 1,000 horsepower and 1,342 lb-ft of torque.

What’s more, it’s got all-wheel drive, too, meaning the Rocket 1000 really lives up to its name.

It charges from 0-97 km/h (0-60 mph) in just 2.6 seconds and on to an electronically-limited top speed of 316 km/h (196 mph).

So, how much will the BRABUS Rocket 1000 set you back?

It’s certainly not cheap, costing just shy of $485,000.

Then again, the incredible BRABUS Rocket 900 R comes with an eye-watering six-figure price tag, too.

But you’d be joining an elite club, which includes Canadian rapper Drake.
