Known for some of the best aftermarket Mercedes programs in the world, Carlsson is looking to set the standard for SUV refinement for 2012. For the program, Carlsson has prepared quite the treat for ML-Class owners. There’s an aero package that add bolds styling to the SUV and there’s a performance enhancement that adds more power than you can imagine.
For the aerodynamic kit, Carlsson took the wind tunnel to develop all of the parts, ensuring up-standard quality and engineering. A new front apron was installed, giving the SUV a more masculine look. Grille inserts made of electro polished stainless steel mesh were also added to the chrome radiator grille and the central air inlet. On the side, Carlsson installed new side skirts whereas the rear end gets a new rear apron and the addition of a new stainless steel, double flow rear exhaust resonator. Rounding off the exterior modifications are a new set of 20" Carlsson 1/5 Revo light alloy wheels. Inside, Carlsson went to great lengths to enhance the ML-Class’ amenities. Illuminated door panels have been fitted in, Carlsson door pins were added, and finally, aluminum pedals were included.
For the engine, Carlsson tweaked the ML 350’s C-Tronic control unit, resulting in an increased output on the SUV’s 3.0-liter V6 engine, from 258 horsepower to and 457 lb/ft of torque to an impressive 310 ponies and 516 lb/ft of torque.
The last piece of modification for the ML CD35 involves the installation of Carlsson’s C-Tronic SUSPENSION with iPhone connectivity. Using a simple app from Carlsson, drivers can configure the system to adjust the vehicle height by 30mm to the road conditions within milliseconds, ensuring superior ride comfort for the driver and the passengers alike.
