Official Mercedes-Benz SLK by Carlsson

Carlsson will display their package for the Mercedes-Benz SLK R172 at the 82nd International Auto-Salon exhibition in Geneva starting next week. The German tuner fitted an exterior, interior and technical package to the two-seater roadster.

The aerodynamic package features the Carlsson front spoiler and the RS front spoiler lip made from carbon. The Carlsson grille inserts made from electro-polished stainless steel replace the plastic honeycomb grille found in the front skirt of the series model. At the rear, Carlsson provides skirt inserts, a diffuser and a spoiler for increased downthrust.

The Carlsson SLK is lowered up to 30 millimeters. The wheel arches hold the Carlsson light metal alloy rims in the 1/10 TE design. Single-part wheels are installed with 8.5×19 inch rims at the front axle and 9.5×19 inch rims to the rear.

Inside the cabin, the Germans fitted a Carlsson Signature Line leather finish in Carlsson Nappa Exclusive leather. The interior finish of the Carlsson Mercedes-Benz SLK is rounded off with Carlsson pedal overlays, Carlsson footrests, Carlsson door locking pins made from brushed aluminum, door sill panels and the glass wind deflector with the laser-printed Carlsson logo.

To increase the performance, the Mercedes-Benz specialist installed the CB25 S performance kit offering 239bhp. Alongside the C-Tronic control unit, they replaced the standard intercooler for a larger one. An improved sound track is achieved by a flow-optimized, stainless steel rear muffler with four oval tailpipes.
