2011 Mercedes-Benz S-Class by Carlsson

On the heels of the upgrades made by Mercedes tuner extraordinaire, Brabus , for the 2011 S-Class, another noted aftermarket company is releasing their program for the high-end luxury car.

While the package comes with plenty of aesthetic upgrades, the most notable improvement Carlsson made on the S-Class is an engine tweak that took the output of the car’s 5.5-liter 12-cylinder bi-turbo engine from the standard 517 horsepower all the way up to 600 horsepower. These power figures allowed it a 0-62 mph time of 4.3 seconds and a mighty impressive top speed of 198 mph. If that doesn’t tickle your fancy, Carlsson is also offering an engine package for the powerful S63 AMG , taking its output from 571 ponies all the way up to 684 HP.

The numbers are staggering for a luxury car like the Mercedes S-Class, but there’s more to Carlsson’s program than just an increased engine output. There are also plenty of aesthetic improvements, including an aero kit that features a new front lip, a boor lid spoiler, and front and rear aprons. The tuner also threw in new stainless steel grille inserts, four new headlights, a series of LED daytime running lights, a C-Tronic lowering kit that drops the car’s height by 30 mm, and a set of Carlsson’s own 1/10 Brilliant Edition alloy wheels measured in either 19" or 20".

Inside, Carlsson dressed up the S-Class with a custom leather upholstery that comes with the company badging embossed into the headrests with a blue illuminated signature in the door sill adding a nice touch to the whole look of the car.

Aesthetically, the package won’t overwhelm you with anything outlandish. But given that the car is the flagship S600 model of Merc’s S-Class family, anything that’s over-the-top would only ruin the luxury car’s overall prestige.

Sadly, to say but I think Carlsson didn’t bring out the beauty that this vehicle has. Well, I hope that to agree that it only looks so simple and ordinary on that, and it seems that it is not a Mercedes vehicle.

It only looks so simple on its exterior detailing and even looks ordinary on that. However, I really love the dressed-up interior of it, and it truly looks very comfortable and cozy on that but how about its speed performance?
