This is not the first tuning package we’ve seen for the new generation SLK-Class , but when it comes to Mercedes models, Carlsson always seems to do an extraordinary job. And their package for the new SLK set to be revealed in Geneva next week is no exception. The new package offers an impressive exterior and interior kit, as well as an increase of 38 HP for the SLK250 version.
For the exterior, Carlsson added a new front spoiler, a carbon fiber RS front spoiler lip, and Carlsson grille inserts made from electro-polished stainless steel. For the rear, the package adds new skirt inserts, a new diffuser, and a new spoiler for increased downthrust. The car sits on a new set of 19" wheels combined with a new suspension system that lowers the car’s ride by 30 millimeters.
For the interior, the tuner put in Nappa Exclusive leather, Carlsson pedal overlays, Carlsson footrests, Carlsson door locking pins made from brushed aluminum, door sill panels, and a glass wind deflector with the laser-printed Carlsson logo.
A CB25 S performance kit takes care of the 1.8 four-cylinder engine by increasing the power from the standard 201 HP to 239 HP. The performance kit was combined with a new stainless steel rear muffler with four oval tailpipes.
