Wheels Boutique out of Miami has made its way onto our pages a few times in the past with its 911 Turbo , F430 , Panamera and Supersports , so it’s no surprise to see it sneaking its way onto our pages again today.
This time around, however, it comes bearing a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, which is a beauty in its own right with its sporty exterior, luxurious interior and powerful 6.2-liter V-8 engine under the hood. The tuner began by stripping off the front and rear bumpers, the trunk spoiler and the rear diffusor and replacing them all with clear-coated carbon-fiber units to lower the weight, increase aerodynamic efficiency and to simply make it look cooler.
At the corners, Wheels Boutiques used its specialty in rollers to pick out the perfect set of ADV.1 wheels to help round out the package.
No tune is ever complete without a bump in horsepower, which Wheels Boutique was happy to perform. Thanks to a new Akrapovic exhaust system, the engine now produces 575 horsepower and 489 pound-feet of torque.

Up front, you can see that the new bumper and apron add in brake vents on the outer edges of the apron, chicken-wire-style covers on the air intakes and grille, and the lower-lip spoiler done in a clear-coated carbon fiber. The Benz star and wings are done up in black, adding to the dark look of this gullwing supercar.
New Pipes and Style Out Back
On the rear, Wheels Boutique Miami added in an aggressive, new diffusor to help negate any aerodynamic lift. On each side of the diffusor are two tailpipes that connect to the Akrapovic exhaust system, which not only boosts the power, but also gives the SLS AMG an even more imposing growl.
On the corners, the AMG now has a set of ADV.1 ADV15TSSL alloy wheels measuring 20 and 21 inches. These matte-black wheels with a gold ring help slightly contrast the super-glossy black coat that this supercar wears. Wrapped around these rims are 375 section width Pirelli P Zero Nero tires to help keep the SLS AMG glued to the road.
