German tuner Lorinser has released their program for the new Mercedes-Benz CLS C218. The complete package offers lift-reducing aerodynamic components, an enhanced performance, stainless steel exhaust systems with a sporty sound, 19 and 20 inch alloy rims and interior modifications.

The body kit from Lorinser includes a front spoiler bumper, wider wings, rear skirt, rear lip and roof spoiler. The Lorinser side skirts form the optical link between the front and rear. The tailor-made body kit is mounted on the serial attachment points.

The Lorinser Sportservice kit offers optimised control electronics for the CLS 350 CGI, which results in an engine output of 322hp at 6,200rpm. At the same time the maximum torque increases to 400Nm between 2,900 and 5,000rpm. The Germans also lifted the limit of 250 km/h, allowing the car to reach 265km/h. The sport rear silencers have been aligned to the different performance kits. The range includes four-pipe systems, which ensure a full and powerful sound, according the tuner.

Lorinser offers various wheel designs and sizes. The RS8 is a 19 inch wheel with turbine look. The recommended wheel/tyre combination comprises 8.5Jx19 inch rims with 255/35ZR19 tyres for the front and 9.5Jx19 inch rims with 285/30ZR19 tyres for the rear.
