FAB Design tunes the Mercedes-Benz SLR

Muamer Hodzic April 17, 2009

We’re always happy to see companies come up with ways to tune a particular Mercedes-Benz vehicle, even though, it’s pretty tough sometimes, especially on the SLR. FAB Design is the latest contender to try and tune the outgoing SLR. As you can see in the gallery below, they did their best to put in some of their own flare and make it unique. That actually might be the problem, they tried too hard, making the car look a bit weird. Everything is a bit over the top, from the front bumpers and rear fenders, to the humongous rear spoiler. Nevertheless, we give them points for effort, but no points for execution. Better luck next time, oh and remember, less is more when it comes to tuning.

The car itself has a high-performance engine which generates an unbelievable performance of 750hp and a maximum torque of 1,080Nm. The FAB Design “Desire” reaches a regulated top speed of 310 km/h and passes the 100 km/h mark in 3.6 seconds. The interior is a sharp contrast of the exterior, the FAB designers did a great job redesigning it – nearly all relevant parts of the SLR interior has been customized by the FAB Design specialists.
