Although the 2012 SLK is already a pretty nice car as it is, a little bit more is much better, when it comes to upgrades. In this vein, Vath has released its bodykit, performance and interior upgrade lines for the car. As you can see, the body mods include a new front lip and rear diffuser tied together by a lowered suspension riding on 20-inch wheels. Interior upgrades aren’t as dramatic, with just some carbon fiber trim, new floor mats and aluminum pedals.
But the replacement speedometer hints at what the Vath-massaged SLK can offer the driver, as the upper reaches of the 205 mile per hour speedometer can be reached if the customer orders the stainless exhaust and ECU upgrades for the car. For the SLK 350, power is bumped to 330 horsepower, which is easily controlled by the addition of a limited slip diff and the big brake kit. The ECU upgrades also benefit the other engines, with the 200 CGI getting upgraded to 210 horsepower and the 250 CGI getting 240 plus hp.
