2012 Carlsson Mercedes-Benz SLK

Carlsson is at it again. One of the best tuners in the world, they are able to turn Mercedes Benz cars into well rounded supercars that set the standards on how Mercedes Benz cars must be modified. This time, they have taken the Classic SLK and turned it into a total masterpiece.

This car is the 2012 Carlsson Mercedes Benz SLK.

Performance

The tuning package first starts on the exterior. A body kit that is exclusively styled gives this car a unique character. Enhancing aerodynamic performance while providing a flashier look, this kit brings out the best in the already sophisticated SLK package.

A new suspension kit lowers the car while providing sharp handling, and 20 inch lightweight wheels provide the legs for this car. And to top the performance tools list, a Carlsson engine tuning kit increases output to 224 horsepower for the SLK200, and 239 horsepower for the SLK250.

Interior

As always for Carlsson, they also improved the interior to match the updates done for the SLK’s styling and performance. Among the list of modifications that they do to the interior are: Nappa Leather upholstery for the seats, pedals made out of high quality aluminum, and Alcantara, leather, wood, and carbon fiber trimmings round up the interior setup.

Carlsson takes pride on the craftsmanship of their products, which is why the Carlsson Mercedes Benz SLK also comes with a 3 year/100000 kilometer warranty that covers all components of the car. And with only up to 150 cars scheduled to come out of the Carlsson factory every year, this car is bound to be super exclusive too.
