As any chef will tell you, using the best ingredients is a crucial step to get the best out of a recipe. Tuner Kicherer obviously subscribes to that principle, as it has already made a name for itself, turning out Mercedes hot rods for the discriminating set. With their latest offering, Kicherer bumps up the sensory factor still further, using the SLS Roadster as their base ingredient.
Calling their creation the SLS Roadster Supersport GT/R, Kicherer installs a black hand-formed grille that is more subdued, removing the in-your-face 3-pointed star logo. In its stead, we get vertical fins that give the front of the car a predatory appearance. 5-spoke 20-inch wheels with black centers help reduce the unsightly wheel gaps, together with a coilover suspension which not only lowers the car but also improves its already superb handling.
To prove that it means the business, this tuner car has it base output lifted to 630 horsepower, with a 650-hp option available in case the 60 horsepower increase from the base 570 isn’t enough for you. At this level of tuning, the 0-100 km/h sprint is acheived in less than 3.5 seconds.
