Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG by VÄTH

Wednesday, June 1, 2011

The tuning job begins with a power upgrade on the 6.3 liter unit that dials the noise from 571 PS (420 kW / 563 hp) up to 615 PS (452 kW / 607 bhp) and 680 Nm (501 lb-ft) of torque. That helps the SLS reach a top speed of 330 km/h (205 mph) and do the 0 to 100 km/h sprint in just 3.6 seconds.

VÄTH adds a high-performance exhaust that comes with a pneumatic valve system which allows the driver to manually control the exhaust sound from the cockpit that stretches between a throaty sporty sound to a more quiet rumble.

For the wheels, VÄTH adds its own 9.5J x 20-inch and 11.5J x 20-inch rims wrapped in 265/30ZR20 and 315/25ZR20 tires, front and back, respectively.

The VÄTH Comfort Suspension lowers the SLS AMG by 25 millimeters.

Visually, the German tuner has a refreshingly subtle, less-is-more take on the SLS AMG which includes an integrated front lip spoiler for more downforce on the front axle, as well as a boot lid spoiler with a trailing edge and side skirts with improved brake ducts.

For the inside, there's a leather sport steering wheel that can also be finsished with carbon or wood trims. A speedometer that reads up to 400 km/h is installed and black floor mats with VÄTH logos are added too. The tuner also offers door trimming in leather.

The complete package costs €32,670.

Mercedes SLS AMG by MEC Design

MEC Design has released the first pictures of their new styling package for the Mercedes SLS AMG.

Built for a customer in Florida, the car has an aggressive body kit with new bumpers, revised side skirts, a trunk-mounted spoiler and a prominent rear diffuser. Other highlights include a stainless steel sport exhaust system, a hydraulic lift-up suspension and 20/21-inch alloy wheels.

Inside, designers added carbon fiber trim, an Alcantara sports steering wheel and special floor mats with the MEC logo.
