Mercedes S-Class tuned by Carlsson

Wednesday, September 7, 2011

Carlsson has introduced a new tuning package for the Mercedes S-Class (W221).

On the design front, the car is outfitted with a new front bumper, aerodynamic side skirts, a revised rear apron and a trunk-mounted spoiler. There's also a suspension lowering module (which reduces the ride height by up 30mm) and 20-inch alloy wheels with high-performance Dunlop tires.

Under the hood, the twin-turbo 5.5-liter V12 is equipped with a revised ECU, a high-flow air filter and a stainless steel sport exhaust system. Thanks to these tweaks, the engine produces 600 PS (441 kW / 591 hp) and an electronically-limited 1024 Nm (755 lb-ft) of torque. This enables the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.3 seconds and hit a top speed of 320 km/h (199 mph).
