The Mercedes-Benz SL-based Super-GT C25 from German tuner Carlsson is set to wow onlookers once more as it takes the stage at the upcoming Essen Motor Show, which opens this 27th of November and lasts through December 5th. Carlsson is also set to showcase a C63 AMG-based vehicle called the CK63 RS, which is rated at a relatively modest 600 horsepower.
The Carlsson C25 made its debut at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show last March, showcasing its undeniable good looks with custom livery, yet the Mercedes-Benz SL base still shows in the modified exterior. The vehicle sports a 6-liter twin turbo V12 engine rated at a whopping 753 horsepower along with 974 lb.-ft. of torque. With a top speed of 220 mph and a 0-62 mph (0-100 kph) time of 3.7 seconds, the C25 is certainly a beast.
Not only is the C25 powerful, but it is also very exclusive. Only 25 units of the car will be produced, and potential owners will also be able to customize their ride further using a wide range of color combinations for the interior and the exterior of the car. Additionally, the power of the vehicle isn’t meant only for show or to be showcased within the confines of a race track. As Carlsson CEO Markus Schuster stated, the C25 was designed such that owners can still safely use the vehicle for daily transport, such as from one’s home to the workplace.
