There are lots of Mercedes-Benz specialized tuners out there, but only some have the know-how and the unique touch to actually make the car better than the original.

Renowned Mercedes cars’ tuner Carlsson, has laid its hands on the Mercedes Benz S-Class, and the results don’t come as a surprise. It makes the already amazing car much more intimidating.. The car receives unselfish quantities of Carbon-fiber which include Stainless steel grill which combined with the restyled bumpers give the S-Class a stylish look. There are twin integrated fog-lamps for that extra dash of style. The kit is available for the S 320 CDI, S350, S 450, S 500, S 600, S 63 and S 65.
Carlsson, one of many respected Mercedes tuners, has taken the SL63 monster from AMG and given it a small upgrade. Besides changing some of the cosmetic features on the CK63, like new wheels and front/back body kits, they focused their attention on something more important – the engine. We are not exactly sure what they have done to the engine, but they were able to increase the horsepower to an amazing 565, from the original 525hp. We can only speculate that the 40hp increase was achieved via a chip or software modification. Enjoy. Thanks Bo from sportbilen.se for the tip

That allows the Carlsson CK50 to gallop from zero to 62mph in a mere 5.1 seconds with a top whack of 182mph. As for the SL 65 AMG, or CK65 as Carlsson likes to refer to it, 700+hp and 811 lb-ft of torque… Continue Reading »
