The SL63 AMG is something you won’t want to keep your hands from. That is exactly the case with the boys down at Inden Design who have decided to create a high-performance wide body tuning kit for the hardtop roadster. And guess what?

You’re all very familiar with the way cars nowadays, not only Mercedes-Benz, are styled in a sort of forward-leaning wedge shape. Looking at the sculpture, it seems the company is leaving the edgy path and headed into a more smooth, natural design language. When interviewed about the art sculpture, Mercedes-Benz Design Chief… Continue Reading »
