• Mercedes CLS55 AMG by MEC Design

As it comes from the factory, the Mercedes Benz CLS55 AMG leaves little to be desired. Aside from its revolutionary four door coupe like design and powerful hand built V8 under the hood, the AMG tuned CLS allows you to tackle every curve and blast down long stretches of open highway while bringing three of your closest friends along for the ride.

AMG’s design team does an excellent job making the CLS a proven performance machine, but as is often the case with aftermarket tuners, in this case MEC Design, there is no such thing as good enough. So MEC started out by giving the CLS a new set of shoes in the form of MECxtreme III Edition alloys measuring 20 inches in diameter. Getting the stance just right, MEC incorporated an adjustable Electronic Lowering module that can raise the chassis over rough terrain and then slam it all the way down to the ground when you arrive at your destination. Out back MEC installed one of their sport tuned quad tipped stainless steel exhaust to add both a bit of style and sporting sound to the CLS. On the inside the driver grabs hold of a custom carbon fiber and leather wrapped steering wheel designed by MEC to go along with the carbon trim kit that dresses up the rest of the interior. Even though the Mercedes Benz CLS55 AMG didn’t need any help from the aftermarket, owners should be glad that MEC gave it a shot anyways.

Now this is what we call the label of true elegance. I agree that if you have a car like this there is less that you’ll want.

Honestly speaking, I hope MEC design didn’t try to customized this CLS55 AMG by which I don’t see any changes at ALL. It’s like I’m dealing with the newbie tuners for that kind of tweaking appearance. Also Mercedes can stand alone and have a lot of money on promoting their cars.

Well after reading the article, first thing that ventures on my senses was it’s not a good car after all. I’ve expected a lot on this car but there no improvement after all. But anyways it’s a Mercedes, so expect a lot of marketing of this car.
