McChip Mercedes C63 AMG

Saturday, May 21st, 2011:

The car tuners from McChip have released a new performance kit for the Mercedes C63 AMG, a car that has been around the block with popular tuning firms. Called the Stage 3 kit, this package consists of a new Cargraphic exhaust system and ECU reprogramming. With these aftermarket mods, the engine now produces 583 PS and 692 Nm of torque. All the performance numbers were not yet released by McChip, but we do know that the top speed has increased to 310 km/h. This Mercedes C63 AMG kit is priced at €10,000 ($14,200), and only takes three days to install. For an extra €7,474 ($10,600), final customizations include the matte black 19-inch alloy rims pictured, while wrapped in high performance Michelin tires.

Hamann Mercedes SLS AMG Hawk

Wednesday, March 16th, 2011:

Another car released at the Geneva Motor Show is the Mercedes SLS AMG from the Hamann tuning company. Called the Hawk, the gullwing door sports car features an Everose Gold exterior with a wind tunnel tested aerodynamic kit. Looks more pink than gold to me, however the package consists of a new front bumper fascia with LED daytime running lights and larger air inlets. A new carbon fiber hood lets hot air escape the engine bay, while the side skirts, rear bumper fascia, carbon fiber wing, and diffuser add styling points.

Carlsson Mercedes SL 65 AMG C25 Royale

Thursday, March 3rd, 2011:

The guys at Carlsson brought their A-game to the Geneva Motor Show with a new version of the C25 called the Royale, based on the Mercedes SL 65 AMG. The tuning firm announced a limited run of 25 units, and the highly modified coupe already has six orders placed. These will be delivered sometime in 2011, while future orders for the C25 Royale take six months to complete and ship out. When comparing the factory Mercedes SL 65 AMG, the Royale weighs 180 kilograms lighter, and this was accomplished with the extensive use of carbon fiber, found on the hood and new roof. Other lightweight components are the full ceramic brake system, which are half the weight of the stock Mercedes SL65 AMG parts. However, the styling and weight reduction aren’t the only parts that Carlsson focused on, the performance under the hood is just as impressive as the exterior.

MR Car Design Mercedes SL 65 AMG

Wednesday, February 16th, 2011:

The German tuning company MR Car Design has released this Mercedes SL 65 AMG called the Shining Star. Based out of Erftstadt, the tuners customized the exterior of this 2005 Mercedes with a new SLR inspired carbon bonnet from Kicherer. A new rear bumper, black fender lights, and mid-mounted rear brake were also installed for a personalized look. It now rides on shiny chrome 20-inch forged rims from Carlsson, and MR Car Design performed some tuning under the hood next. With new software tweaking the ECU, the Mercedes SL 65 AMG gained 80 PS and 110 Nm of torque to the factory output of 612 PS and 1,001 Nm of torque. This lightweight Mercedes can now be classified as a tuners dream with those figures.

FAB Design Mercedes SLS AMG

The Swiss tuners at FAB Design have pulled back the sheets to reveal the modified Mercedes SLS AMG.  Although the tuning company was scarce on the details, we do know that they were able to gain an extra 40 horsepower from the Gullwing door supercar. This comes from the Mercedes V8 engine producing a total of 611 hp after the tuning. At the track it improved the sprint time from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds, a .1 difference from the factory car time. FAB Design also designed a new body kit for the SLS AMG, consisting of a re-styled front bumper with new vents and a lip spoiler, side skirts, roof scoop, and a new rear bumper that accompanies the four exhaust tips.
