2011 Mercedes CLS 500 "The Big Black One" by Kicherer

Kicherer certainly outdid themselves this time. With a new tuning program for the Mercedes CLS 500 called the "Big Black One", the German tuning company has given us the full breadth of what the CLS is capable of. It’s got a cool nickname that immediately grabs your attention and a look that adds some aggression, but the best part is that it’s got pretty nasty performance upgrades that should make it more imposing than it already is.

On it’s own, this Mercedes already packs quite a mean punch, thanks to a 4.6-liter V8 engine that produces an output of 402 horsepower and 443 lb/ft of torque. But thanks to a software update and the addition of a new sports exhaust system, Kicherer was able to bump up the output to 463 horsepower and 509 lb/ft of torque.

On top of the engine improvements, the tuning company also installed their very own PowerConverter, allowing the car to have a faster jump out of the block than it normally would. A power upgrade with a speed boost? Sounds sweet to us.

The car’s chassis was also given a HighEnd Foliation treatment in matte black and carbon to go with the addition of a set of of its own hand-made 20" RS-1 forged wheels.

Yeah! I have to agree with that. Its impressive and very efficient engine is the best thing on this vehicle, and it truly recovered the simplicity of this vehicle.

The best thing that this vehicle has is its powerful and efficient engine. The rest of it is not so impressive at all. Anyway, I really wonder if what’s its interior looks like? Well, I hope that it has an awesome technology just like with their other vehicle have.

yeah, and I think the awesome figure performance of the car is just enough to escape from police cars!hehe BTW, I really like elegance of Mercedes vehicle though it have the styling and platform.

haha. Full black vehicle really reminds me of kidnappers car! Well, I have to say that the speed performance of the car and it seems that its torque is just enough to make it blast in the race track.

This car is more of an executive type vehicle! The speed performance is very remarkable. With the awesomeness of this car I bet would sell like hotcakes in the market. BTW, I wonder on what will be the competitor of this car?

I completely agree on what you have said. Mercedes car will always be an awesome vehicle plus it has an impressive speed performance!

It looks like just a simple car but since it is a Mercedes, I would agree that this is really an amazing one. The pure black concept makes it look more powerful and aggressive. I really love this one.

The Big Black One looks really astonishing for a Mercedes. Thanks for Kicherer, they really give a fresh look for the Mercedes CLS 500. I love its speed and power.

I have to agree that they have made an awesome upgrade for this car. I don’t think that its still need a modification in the interior for its already look so sporty. I want to see them make a racing prototype car..

hmm. They have sewed manually the chassis of the car? I thought they are using a machine to make it more accurate. BTW, I was impressed with the luxurious styling of this car as expected from the Mercedes car. The performance of the engine is impressive as well.
