MEC Design tunes the new Mercedes-Benz SLS

German tuning company MEC Design has released a some illustrations showing just how the SLS might look once they’ve got their hands on one. MEC Design is known for their extreme tuning, which is evident in these computer illustrations. The first study shows the SLS AMG from the front. The Mercedes Benz star has moved from the front to make space and now sits above the grill and is very reminiscent of the SLR McLaren which it is replacing.

Mercedes-Benz S-Class Bodykit from MEC Design

The MEC Design S-Class bodykit is a 2face system which allows the customer the choice of having the front bumper with driving lights and fog lights or with just mesh. At the rear you have the choice between having the sporty looking diffusor or to go with the more refined elegant diffusor.

FAB Design tunes the Mercedes-Benz SLR

We’re always happy to see companies come up with ways to tune a particular Mercedes-Benz vehicle, even though, it’s pretty tough sometimes, especially on the SLR. FAB Design is the latest contender to try and tune the outgoing SLR. As you can see in the gallery below, they did their best to put in some of their own flare and make it unique. That actually might be the problem, they tried too hard, making the car look a bit weird. Everything is a bit over the top, from the front bumpers and rear fenders, to the humongous rear spoiler. Nevertheless, we give them points for effort, but no points for… Continue Reading »

ASMA tries to tune the Mercedes SLR

You probably remember the ASMA tuned M-Class that looks like a hungry shark in some form or another. The guys are back and have created another creature that we should not mess with, literary. I actually asked myself if their goal is to make the cars uglier instead of improving them. They should take a look at what tuners like RENNtech and BRABUS are doing. The guys definitely have lots to learn from the top players in the Mercedes tuning industry, but if they continue like this, they will soon find themselves tuning ricers. They did manage to increase the horsepower to 700, but honestly, who cares when it looks… Continue Reading »
