2012 Mercedes SLS AMG Roadster Jetstream by FAB Design

We all know how eccentric the folks over at FAB Design are, but one program that really captured our attention was their work on the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG. Now, the tuner extraordinaire is back with a similar program for the SLS AMG Roadster . Unlike the hard-top version of the Mercedes supercar, the program for the roadster is called the Jetstream, and it comes with plenty of aerodynamic and performance modifications.

The first order of business is the body kit, which comes with a new front bumper with vertically positioned daylight running lights. It also has wider fenders that flow down into the sides skirts and run up into the widened quarter panels. A new rear bumper was also added with bigger vents to go with a diffuser and a carbon fiber lip spoiler. Lastly, FAB Design also installed a new stainless steel sports exhaust system that has an integrated valve control and a quad-tailpipe set-up.

As far as performance modifications are concerned, FAB Design was able to bump up the output of the SLS AMG Roadster from the standard 563 horsepower and 479 lb/ft of torque all the way up to 607 horsepower and 509 lb/ft torque. The increased output allows the supercar to hit 0-62 mph in 3.6 seconds with a new top speed of 202 mph.


Can you say that the tuning was all effective?

Everything FAB Design has done was excellent.

Let’s precisely say it’s not a failure and unconvincing instead. FAB design is just good, but when it comes to other designs, they could be left behind. 

FAB Design must have done better on their styling. What has happened here is more like an addition of effective components instead.

FAB Design should have chosen a different color for it. The figure is okay, but the paint is not.

The body kit used is well-fitted to this roadster, and the modifications done is great.

Why must they neglect the exterior? It’s also important. The upgrade on its mechanical specifications are magnificent, nevertheless.

I can’t believe FAB Design actually did this. From their previous works, the exterior designs are better. Then again, the added features are helpful, nevertheless.

I don’t like the matte finish; what I like is the glossy black color and a touch up of flame decals like in the game NFS MW.

Typically, the most plain looking cars have great performances. This is just one of those cars. I think the only prominent feature of this is its uniquely-shaped head lamps.

NICE! This car has been pimped out and it looks fabulous for public viewing. I think it will show more glamour if they use a black glossy paint on this one.
