Wheelsandmore is known for adding a bit of brawn to vehicles with owners looking to brighten up their day with a little custom to their car. The tuner doesn’t really add any exterior or interior changes other than the obvious addition of new wheels, but then again, this tuner doesn’t necessarily tune vehicles that need any extra help in the looks department. A couple of months ago they fixed up the Mercedes SL65 AMG with a boost and some new wheels and now they are revealing a package for the Mercedes SLS AMG. The kit for this sports car adds the usual engine mods and wheels, but it also includes some other minor additions.
For the engine the tuner is offering an optimized control electronics and a hand-made exhaust system with manifolds and sport catalysts. The result is an increase of 39 HP to a total of 610 HP if you opt only for the ECU update or 624 HP and 685 lb-ft of torque with the addition of the new exhaust system. Top speed is electronically limited it to 325 km/h (201 mph).
The tuning package also includes a new set of handmade 20 inch milled and forged alloys wrapped in Dunlop Sport Maxx tires size 265/30/20 at the front and 285/30/20 at the rear and a Level Control System. This system includes superlight full race coilovers that feature adjustable compression and rebound which can lift the front and rear axle up to 30 mm.
As soon as the first models of the new SLS were delivered, wheelsandmore presents his performance upgrades for the sporty gran-turismo-coupe.
571hp out of 6.2 liters of displacement, no compressor, no bells and no whistles, top speed 197 mph and breathtakingly beautiful. Nevertheless, the tuner found out potential to advance settings of already awarded perfection (SLS = Super Sport Light) to improve performance and more convinced with fine optical modifications.
The serial output increases wheelsandmore in 2 steps, either through optimized control electronics up to powerful 610hp (+39hp) and 685 lb-ft (+35 lb-ft) or combined with a high-end, hand-made exhaust system, contending manifolds, sport catalysts and volume optimized mufflers with digitally programmable exhaust valves, improving standard 571 horsepower up to heavenly 624hp and 690lb of torque. Top speed is electronically limited at 202 mph.
Since time immemorial, the refiner is not only known to confer with perfectly designed 3-piece forged wheels, giving sports- and supersportcars a distinctive look. By reducing the wheel load fluctuations a perfect balance between suspension and unsprung mass produce and thus improve the performance of the AMG-racer also. Wheelsandmore produces their wheel model 6Sporz for the SLS currently in sizes 9.0 and 11.0 x 20 inches for tire sizes 265/30/20 (front) and 285/30/20 (rear).
From March 2011 this wheel model will be available also in 21 inch size, developed especially for the rear axle of the SLS.
In the case of the full race coilovers from the wheelsandmore Mercedes SLS portfolio, customers can choose between ultra-lightweight aluminum alloy design and a hydraulically adjustable luxury version LCS (Level control system) able to lift up axles on the front and rear around 30mm. Both suspension nsystems are infinitely adjustable compression and rebound, making it ideal tuned to the needs.
Individual requests, regarding interior and carbon body refining, are also pleased by the in-house design studio and saddlery of wheelsandmore.
