When a tuner decides to put together a package for the Mercedes SL-Class - and many of them have - they have to ensure that the work done on the sports car is heads and shoulders above everyone else. They can achieve this through an extravagant exterior paint finish, a revamped interior, or a massive engine upgrade, among other things. German tuner, fostla.de, is taking the route of covering the SL 55 AMG with a bright and eye-catching paint finish and some extra ponies to boot.
For starters, the SL 55 AMG was put through the exterior ringer with a metallic matte yellow PWF foil that makes the sports car shine. The yellow base is complimented by new wheels that were first powder coated in gloss black and then foiled in the yellow body color. These wheels measure 10.5x20 inch at the front axle and 12.5x20 inch at the rear axle, and have been fitted with appropriate tires (265/30-20 and 325/25-20). There is also a lowering kit which brings the car closer to the ground and offers a sportier overall look to the vehicle.
Getting under that metallic matte yellow hood, there is the Mercedes’ V8 engine that has received software optimization to achieve a power boost of 548 HP from the standard 500 HP. Facilitating this boost is the new exhaust system with black glossy powder coated exhaust tips.
This flashy foil and boosted output comes in at a price of 30,000 euro, or about $39,000 at the current exchange rates.
