Without a doubt, sex sells and is one of the reasons many enthusiasts out there spend so much time and money tuning their cars. The guys from Inden Design have used this method to promote a new package for the sleek Mercedes SLS AMG with German model Katja Runiello. For the true car fans, the tuning kit is modest in the performance department with a minor boost for the 6.3-liter V8 powerplant. After the ECU optimization, the Mercedes sports car now puts down 614 horses, a decent jump from the factory 563 horsepower.

German Special Customs, better known as GSC from Chemnitz, Germany have released their latest take on the Mercedes G-Class G-Wagon Goldstorm. It definitely received a fancy look, even though Mercedes originally intended these G-Class SUV’s to be military vehicles years ago. Tuners continue to bring the most street worthy potential out of the luxury utility vehicle, and we won’t complain. This Mercedes G65 AMG features a 6.0-liter turbocharged V12 producing 603 bhp.
The famous Wald International tuners have released this video along with some pictures of a new 3rd edition Black Bison kit for Mercedes models.

Just in time for the Geneva Motor Show, the tuners at Brabus constructed this Mercedes C63 AMG and are calling it the Bullit Coupe. This is one of the most powerful C-Class Mercedes in the world, since Brabus has installed a 5.5-liter V12 from a Mercedes S-Class, and then bored out the cylinders to make it 6.3-liters along with two new turbochargers. They claim that the small sports car now produces 800 horsepower with 1,420 Nm of torque. With the torque electronically limited to prevent wheel slippage, the Bullit Coupe is able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.7 seconds. It can now reach 200 km/h in only 9.8 seconds, while a top speed of 370 km/h or 230 mph is accomplished.

The Mercedes sports car also received a larger intercooler and stainless steel exhaust system to handle the new output around 240 horsepower.
The tuners at Prior Design have released a sleek package for the Mercedes CL-Class called the Black Edition.

A roof mounted air intake completely transforms the look of the Mercedes CL-Class, while a new rear bumper with diffuser integration round out the back-end.
The popular tuners from Wheelsandmore have released this unique project based on the McLaren MP4-12C and are calling it the Diabolical Toxique Evil. They have hooked it up with both performance and styling parts to compete with the recently annnounced Hennessey McLaren MP4-12C supercar. While the McLaren MP4-12C GT3 is a prestigious car to own, it can always use some improvements. Wheelsandmore was able to increase the factory 3.9-liter twin turbo V8 engine from 592 HP to 666 horsepower. Torque was also raised from the stock 442.5 lb-ft to around 472 lb-ft, which is plenty for an exotic car that is so lightweight.
A new Veilside body kit has been announced at the Tokyo Auto Salon for the Mercedes SL-Class. Calling it the Black Fortune, only 300 kits will be made by Veilside at a price of 3,000,000 JPY ($39,000 / €31,000). This is the first time the popular aero part manufacturer has constructed a kit for the Mercedes-Benz SL series. You can tell that this design came inspired by the Mercedes SL 65 AMG Black Series, yet still has some new unique features to set them apart.
