Mercedes SL500 by Carlsson

The Germans know how to make cars but they also know hot to tune cars. The guys at Carlsson would like to take a chance and modify your Mercedes SL500 into a Carlsson CK50 (also known as a beast) with improved performances.

First thing they did is adding a new electronic control unit (ECU) that will improve the output of the 5.5 liter V8 to produce 435hp (instead of the factory 388 hp) and a 600 Nm of torque. With these modifications and a new exhaust system that include four polished tailpipes, the car is capable to top at 293 km/h and should do 100km/h in 5.1 seconds.

Other than the performance modifiers, Carlsson has come up with a lengthier front spoiler and electro-polished grille inserts, a rear diffuser with air conduction system and rear spoiler for the SL with AMG package. Also a nice addition are the 30mm lowered C-Tronic suspension and the 19/20-inch light-weight multi-stoke wheels.
