The tuners at Kicherer have announced a Supercharged GT package for the Mercedes SLS AMG. With the performance modifications to the 6.3-liter V8 engine, a new power output of about 700 BHP to go along with 840 Nm of torque was achieved. This comes from the new supercharger and allows the sports car to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.4 seconds while reaching a top speed of 300 km/h or 186 mph.
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.
Here is the latest Mercedes SLS tuning work from the guys at MEC Design. This sleek kit offers a variety of styling improvements to give the Mercedes an extra aggressive look. First is the addition of a new body kit consisting of a new front and rear bumper, front lip with optional carbon fiber in one or two pieces, side skirts with LED lighting, rear spoiler, roof scoop, and a rear diffuser. What really sets this Mercedes SLS AMG apart is the wheel package from MEC Design. The tuners installed their very own MECxtremelll 3tg rims measuring 10.5×20 up front, and 11.5×21 at the rear. These lightweight pieces come wrapped in high performance tires sized 265/30ZR20, and 295/25ZR21 respectively.
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.
