At the Geneva Motor Salon, Carlsson released this new package for the Smart Fortwo. While we aren’t great fans of this tiny sports car, if you even want to call it a sports car, they are catching on and selling worldwide. More people everyday are looking for Smart tuning ideas to boost the pitiful 1.0-liter engine. Carlsson has introduced this CK10 package to add a new sport air filter and revise the ECU to bring the output to 110 horsepower and 158 Nm of torque.
Check out this Carlsson tuning package for the Mercedes-Benz SLK set to be displayed at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. On the exterior is a new aero kit similar to the AMG sports package. It features a carbon RS lip spoiler, grille inserts, diffuser and trunk lip spoiler. Under the hood is a CB25 S package for the SLK powerplant from the Carlsson Plug-and-Drive series. The Mercedes sports car also received a larger intercooler and stainless steel exhaust system to handle the new output around 240 horsepower.
Here we have the Carlsson tuned Mercedes GL Grand Edition called the CGL45 that is planned to be unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show. It features a wide body kit with new wheel arches, front spoiler, chrome grille, and rear apron holding the new stainless steel exhaust system. Power increases for the Mercedes-Benz show 310 PS and 700 Nm of torque, a jump from the factory model 265 PS and 620 Nm of torque. For the top of the line model, the Mercedes GL 500 has been boosted to 435 PS and 600 newton meters of torque.
The German tuning company Carlsson has released a new package for the Mercedes-Benz SLK. Performance mods start off with a new C-Tronic kit to deliver more boost to the new CGI engines found in the SLK. The 200 CGI Mercedes SLK power was increased to 224 PS, while the SLK 250 CGI received 239 PS. A suspension kit was installed to lower the Benz up to 30 mm along with the new 18 to 20-inch wheels. Exterior styling improvements to the Mercedes include a new front lip spoiler, grille inserts, spoiler, and a diffuser at the rear.
Rolf Schlepp, chief designer for the Carlsson tuning company, accentuates the coupe styling of the Mercedes CLS with a new aerodynamic package. The kit includes stainless-steel grille inserts, rear apron boasting an integrated diffuser, front spoiler, and RS front spoiler lip, the last available optionally in carbon fiber. Power boosting kits are available from Carlsson for many different CLS engines; one boosts the CLS 63 AMG twin-turbo V8 from the standard 557 PS to as much as 600 PS. The CLS 350 CDI’s power rating is boosted by as much as 20 percent by the Carlsson C-Tronic control unit, bringing it up to 780 Nm and 320 PS, an increase of 130 Nm and 55 PS over the standard model. The sprint time of the Mercedes CLS has been improved from the standard by a full 0.3 seconds, resulting in zero to one hundred kilometers an hour in only 5.9 seconds.
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.
The German car tuning company Carlsson recently released their newest upgrade package for the Mercedes E-Class Cabrio ranging from sleek new exterior add-ons to performance and more. To begin the process, the team from Carlsson had to upgrade the exterior adding a new set of alloy wheels (available from 16-20-inches), a new front and rear spoiler. To achieve top of the line status, the most costly wheels in the package go for 2,712 Euros with the general package at a reasonable 1,698 Euros. The interior is like a world of its own. Wrapped in the most styling Alcantara upholstery and clean cut leather, this interior is something to remember.
The German tuners at Carlsson have surprised the aftermarket industry with their French model Citroen C5, set to premiere at the International Auto Show in Leipzig. Typically customizing Mercedes-Benz models, the tuning company has chosen to upgrade the wagon and family saloon Citroen C5. It is said that a new exterior and interior styling package will be exclusively designed. The Carlsson Citroen C5 will be developed in collaboration with the French car manufacturer to have the both the sedan and wagon body styles perfected.
German car tuning company Carlsson has modified the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class with several performance and styling upgrades. Starting it off is the RS-kit that delivers better aerodynamic flow for the Mercedes GL-Class. A new front grille was installed along and an aggressive looking front bumper with stainless steel inserts added as well. Along the bottom of the car is a new front lip, side skirts, and 22 inch single-cast alloy wheels called the 1/11 Evo Brilliant Edition. The wheels come wrapped in 295/35 R22 high performance tires from Dunlop and are priced all together at 4,189 euros. To make the wheels fit with the styling improvements, Carlsson hooked up the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class with a suspension tuning kit called C-Tronic Suspension. The suspension package allows the car to be lowered 30 mm while adjusting itself with the riding conditions, and is priced at 1,099 euros.
Carlsson is the german tuning company specialized in modifying Mercedes Benz models. They wanted to improve the Mercedes SL CK63 RS and with more performance, a complete aerodynamics kit, fine leather in the car’s interior and an exclusive varnish their final result is a masterpiece. The car’s engine has the same cubic capacity but after a couple of improvements it could develop up to 600 HP instead of the serial 525 HP. The maximum torque also rises from 630 Nm at 5,200 rpm to 705 Nm at 5,100 rpm. After this power refinement the car could accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.1 seconds and it’s half a second faster than the AMG model.
