In case there was ever a question in anyone’s mind, German tuner Wheelsandmore is considered one of the best in the tuning business for their impeccable versatility in tuning sports cars. These guys don’t discriminate with their work, and that’s no more evident in their latest project involving the all-new Mercedes SL500 R231 . Fresh off the press, Wheelsandmore’s program for the SL500 R231 is billed as "Tuningpremiere," and like everything the tuner does these days, the program comes chalk full of amenities.
To begin with, Wheelsandmore wrapped the Mercedes roadster in an aluminum-silver-gray finish that adds a vestige of mystique to the car’s overall look. In addition to that, the tuner also fitted the SL500 with a new set of 20" 6Sporz² wheels that can be wrapped in Continental Sport Contact 5P tires.
The car’s suspension was also tweaked, courtesy of a fully adjustable suspension module called LowMaXX. As always, the final piece to the tuning puzzle deals with engine modifications. Thanks to a remapped ECU system, Wheelsandmore managed to increase the engine output of the SL500 R231 to an impressive 505 horsepower and 590 lb/ft of torque, an increase of 70 ponies and 74 lb/ft of torque.
