• Mcchip-dkr Beefs up the Mercedes SLS AMG With its dkr-MC700 Stage Two Kit

Out of the limelight of the Detroit Auto Show comes a new program from noted aftermarket tuner mcchip-dkr.

We already saw the initial stages of the MC700 program for the Mercedes SLS AMG late last year, but now, there are plenty of modifications to go around, highlighted by a two-stage program on the car’s 571-horsepower, 6.3-liter V-8 engine.

Stage 1, as was detailed previously, includes the operation of a mechanically driven compressor to go with the installation of a pure compressor supercharger kit, the optimization of ECU software, and the addition of a Capristo exhaust system. This resulted in the improvement of the supercar’s output to 680 horsepower and 568 pounds per feet of torque.

If that isn’t enough to tickle your fancy, the brawnier Stage Two option comes with a more aggressive ECU remap to go with a new sports catalyst, further spiking the output to a spicy 708 horsepower and 585 pounds per feet of torque.

For the Stage One program, you’ll have to shell out €69,900 ($93,400), while the Stage Two kit will set you back an additional €9,099 ($12,100), rounding it out to €78,999, or about $105,500.

In addition to the comprehensive engine upgrade, this new program also boasts a matte-grey body wrap courtesy of CoverEFX at a price of €5,999 ($8,000), as well as a new KW sports suspension kit with an HLS 4 system, a technology that for €12,999 ($17,300), can adjust the car’s front and rear axles back to factory height at just a click of a button.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio
