The new generation Mercedes CLS has just been launched onto the market and tuners are already preparing tuning packages for it. The first was brought on by Lorinser, and now Carlsson is bringing the second. Their package includes both petrol and diesel engine updates and an impressive exterior kit.
The aerodynamic kit starts with a new front spoiler and RS front spoiler lip, as well as power domes for the bonnet and mudguard inserts. All of these features are also available in real carbon. Finishing the front end’s makeover are new front apron inserts with LED fog lamps and built-in air inlets. Get to the back of the Mercedes and Carlsson has added a new rear spoiler, a stainless steel rear silencer, and two oval tailpipes.
For the interior, the tuner is offering an Alcantara sports steering wheel, pedals and foot rests made of brushed aluminum, and velour foot mats featuring the Carlsson logo.
The CLS 350 CGI and CLS 350 CDI models are getting a bump up on the rest with a CK35 performance kit. This kit gets the CGI up to 333hp and the CDI to 320hp. With this power increase the CLS will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 5.9 seconds.
This package adds much more to the luxury sedan than the package from Lorinser, but we are sure that by the time the Mercedes CLS gets put on the market, these packages will see plenty of changes and renditions.
The German tuner Carlsson has unveiled a new tuning package for the Mercedes E-Class Cabriolet. The new kit is available for the E 350 CDI model and includes a new aerodynamic package and engine updates.

Carlsson unveiled the C25 tuning kit for the Mercedes SL600 at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show. Now that the first rollout of the Carlsson C25 took place on the Formula 1-track in Hockenheim, Carlsson has also prepared a C25 package for the Smart Fortwo.
The C25 Smart edition offers exclusive upholstery (same colors as the C25 bound with gray and orange), aluminum pedals, wheels and tires specific, a new line exhaust, and some elements of the traditional C25 body kit.
It is powered by a 84hp turbo engine or a choice of two naturally aspirated engine versions, delivering 61/71 bhp, respectively. The turbo engine is paired with a stainless-steel rear silencer with four polished exit pipes and the two naturally aspirated versions offer the silencer with an end-pipe only system.
Like with the C25 supercar, the Smart Edition will also be limited to 25 units. It will carry a price tag of 50,000 euro.
The Mercedes Benz tuner Carlsson has unveiled the RS Design Package for the S Class luxury limousine, giving the full sized sedan a sportier look while allowing it to shine though above and beyond the competition. Offering their customers quite a bit of versatility, the Carlsson RS package is made up of high quality components consisting of lightweight carbon fiber or the more economical polyurethane as an option. The RS Design Package transforms the S Class into a sporty four door worthy of a gentleman, with a well toned body complete with bolder arches and a more aggressive exterior providing Mercedes Benz owners with the highest degree of exclusivity and uniqueness.
Carlsson revealed the first details on the C25, a tuning kit based on the Mercedes SL600 set to be released in March at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show. To ensure the car’s exclusivity the tuner announced that there will only be 25 units produced, with only one unit for a certain country.
The C25 is powered by a 6.0 Liter V12 Bi-Turbo engine with an amazing output of 753 HP and 1150 Nm. Translated into performance this means a sprint from 0 to 60 MPH in 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 201 MPH.
The German tuning house Carlsson has just revealed a new performance package for the very sporty 2010 Mercedes Benz E Class Coupe at last weeks Frankfurt Motor Show. The new Carlsson CK50 is based on the two door E 550 and starts off with an increase in power that brings the V8 power plant’s maximum output up to 435 HP and 442.5 lb-ft of torque up from the factory rated 382 HP for the 5.5 Liter eight cylinder gas burning engine.
The Carlsson CK50 features an RS style front lip spoiler made from lightweight carbon fiber that adds a sense of sport to the new midsize Mercedes coupe as well as an oversized Carlsson emblem in the middle of the grill to let onlookers know that this is no ordinary E Class coupe. Out back the German tuners have added a stainless steel exhaust system complete with a pair of trapezoidal tips to give the tuned 2010 E Class coupe the sporty appearance it warrants as well as an aggressive exhaust note to match.
The Carlsson CK50 rides on a set of the aftermarket manufacturer’s signature two tone 1/5 Revo wheels measuring 20 inches in diameter with a set of sport tuned coil overs underneath that allow the owner to no only get the desired stance from their two door E Class, but also adjust it to optimize the sport coupe’s handling while the interior of the Carlsson CK50 is made up of a variety of high class suede and aluminum accents on the gear shifter and pedals. The German tuners have successfully added just the right amount of attitude and style to the new E coupe without taking away from the luxury car’s prominence.
If Brabus focused their attention of the S-Class for thew Frankfurt Motor Show, Carlsson moved their attention to the E63 AMG sports sedan. Their tuning package called E-CK63 RS is focusing on both car’s dynamic and luxurious.
Featuring an entirely re-engineered V8-engine, the E-CK63 RS delivers 585 hp and 695 NM and sprints from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds.
At the exterior the German tuner added: front skirt, extended wings, side mouldings and rear skirt reveals the power of the Carlsson E-class at first sight, all made of polyurethane. On the interior Carlsson added aluminum applications on the door lock studs, the pedals and the foot rest, while the seats, the steering wheel, the automatic gearstick and the insides of the door are lined with the most delicate materials.
The German tuning firm Carlsson has a long tradition of modifying Mercedes Benz models with everything from wild body kits and two tone paint jobs to more tasteful wheel and tire upgrades. Being that the 2010 E Class coupe is still a brand new model, and most automotive enthusiasts haven’t even had the opportunities to get to know the sporty two door’s aggressively sweeping lines. So the designers at Carlsson have decided to leave the bodywork alone for now and focus on upgrading the new E Class coupe by modifying its stance and fitting it with a pair of new shoes.
The suspension is modified with a set of lowering springs from the German manufacturer and brings the body about and inch closer the ground and eliminates any unsightly wheel gap that would show up between the new rims and the coupe’s already bold fenders. Carlsson is currently offering two different wheel and tire packages designed to work with the 2010 E Class. The first is a rather large 20 inch variant of their two tone split five spoke 1/5 REVO wheels starting at 3969 Euro. For the more conservative consumer Carlsson is also offering a set of 19 inch rollers for the shapely coupe, the brilliantly polished eleven spoke 1/11 Evo Brilliant Edition that will set you back only 2499 Euro.
The German tuning firm Carlsson has just launched a new package for the Mercedes Benz GL SUV called the RS-Kit. The customization program features a lowered hanging front lip spoiler, a larger bolder grill featuring a lot more chrome than came from the factory, a pair of power bulges placed on top of the hood, enough driving lights to illuminate a soccer game, more mesh grills in the side skirts and of course a set of signature Carlsson rolling stock wrapped in high performance rubber.
Never ones to leave well enough alone, the tuners at Carlsson have upgraded the GL500’s output thanks to an optimized engine electronics unit and a high flowing sport air filter. The engine now produces a total of 435 HP and 442 lb-ft of torque. The diesel powered GL 420 CDI has also been tuned to produce a maximum output of 354 HP and the GL 320 CDI has been raised to 269 HP.
If you are looking to add a significant amount of additional muscle, both aesthetically and performance wise, perhaps a Mercedes Benz GL dressed up with Carlsson’s RS-Kit is just what you are looking for to set you apart from ordinary GL drivers.
The German tuners Carlsson have finally made the future a reality. Up until now the aftermarket has only been releasing renderings of modified 2010 Mercedes Benz E-Class models, you know, the ones that haven’t even hit the market yet, until now.
