Wald Shows Up At SEMA With An Orange CLS

A couple of weeks ago, we presented to you Wald’s rendition of the outgoing R230 Mercedes SL. At the ongoing SEMA show, Japanese tuner Wald has on its stand a radically-colored Mercedes with an aesthetic treatment similar to that on the R230 SL. As with the R230 Wald “Black Bison”, this special CLS features a revised front fascia, new skirts and vented fenders. The back end also features rear vents on the lower part of the fenders, a roof and deck spoiler, and a diffuser with oval-tipped staggered tailpipes peeking out from the diffuser area. Complementing the more aggressive aerodynamics are a set of black Forgiato wheels which provide a… Continue Reading »


RENNtech & Company Build 10-second SLR

In a unique collaborative effort, a relatively rare Mclaren SLR has been turned into an awesome street-fighting machine, as if the original were not already hardcore enough. Exotic Boutique, RENNtech, Platinum Motorsport and MACarbon have joined forces to produce an SLR that will make its appearance at the upcoming SEMA show. This is after this special SLR has put words to action after it showed what it can do at a drag strip. The builders added to the already aggressive-looking SLR a Mansory Renovatio body kit with matching 20-inch Agetro M140 monoblock rims. To adjust the stance for particular ride heights, a KW coilover suspension with a hydraulically adjustable height… Continue Reading »


Wald Black Bison Version Updates The R230 SL

Despite being on the verge of being replaced, tuners continue to craft upgrades for the long-live SL-Class R230. The latest of these tuners to do so is Wald, which, in its typical fashion, has come up with a wild-looking kit for the Mercedes SL. Marketing it as an aerodynamic upgrade, Japanese tuner Wald has installed a replacement front bumper for a more aggressive look, new side skirts and a wide body kit consisting of front fender arches and rear arch extensions that are tied in by the skirts. A rear bumper fascia, diffuser and trunk spoiler make up the rear treatment.  The final touch as you come up from behind… Continue Reading »


Hess Motorsports Releases Customization Kit For The E350

Despite its German-like name, Hess Motorsports is a US-based car customizing company which has released its take on the E350. Starting with a gloss-painted black body sedan body, Hess added a rear spoiler and applied Llumar black tint to the windows. Continuing with the all-black theme, Hess then replaced the standard wheels with 20-inch NC forged rims with black centers and a polished outer lip. The spoke design allows the brake rotors to show through, while the ride height has been adjusted with Eibach Pro springs to provide just the right clearance between the fenders and the Michelin low-profile PS2s. Taken as a whole, Hess Motorsports has produced a version… Continue Reading »


Kicherer Presents Its SLS Roadster Supersport GT/R

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… Continue Reading »


FAB Design SLS Pair Seen Prowling London

As you’ll see in the clip below, what we have are a pair of FAB Design SLS Gullstreams. The chances of two such supercars meeting up in a congested city like London are, if not remote, quite unusual, so this could some sort of viral promo. And although they’re unmistakably based on the SLS AMG, enough modifications were done so that the tuner felt the need to stamp their own identity onto the cars. Which is why you see FAB Design’s logo on the grille instead of the three-pointed star. Powered by a 6.3-liter V8, AMG’s creation develops around 615 horsepower, which allows the car to hit 100 km/h in… Continue Reading »


Piecha Design Gives Aging SL-Class A Facelift

Despite the fact that a new SL is on the horizon to replace the relatively old SL, Piecha Design has come out with a new kit to give the 2008 and newer SL-Class another facelift. Piecha’s kit includes new housings for LED daytime running lights and fog lamps. This housings fits all SL bumpers, including the AMG-specific bumpers of the SL63 and SL65. A three-part front spoiler lip is also offered with the kit, which allows owners to mix and match their car’s look according to their whims. No styling kit is complete without a unique set of wheels, and Piecha’s offering is its set of MP1 wheels that are… Continue Reading »
