Rex Accelero, a tuner that is not yet as well known as Brabus or Carlsson , unveiled its latest creation: a new wide body for the Mercedes SLK 55 AMG. The main idea of the kit is the extensions: the front fenders have been extended by 2.5 inches per side while the rear fenders have been extended by 2.75 inches.
Due to the fact that the vehicle you see is a prototype, the engine remained the same 5.5 liter V8 engine capable to deliver 360 hp, but don’t worry, according to the manufacturer the modifications will boost the engine to 500 hp taking out in this way the ”standard” SLK55 AMG . The kit consists of a new hood with a mean look, a re-designed front bumper, new side sills, a re-designed rear bumper with integrated carbon fiber air diffuser for better stability and a carbon fiber trunk spoiler.
Also, a new H&R sport springs system was installed lowering the car with over 25 millimeters. Although we said that the car is only a prototype, the good news is that the manufacturer says it will be accepting orders beginning in September.
