The German tuner Hamann is preparing their first tuning program for the Mercedes SLS AMG. And, like always, they started by improving the car’s aerodynamics and providing the car with a little personal touch.

For that touch, Hamann is offering a set of forged alloy wheels named Design Edition Race "Anodized", in the dimensions of 9.0Jx21 (front) and 11.0Jx21 (rear). These wheels are produced using the most modern manufacturing processes and come painted in a black matte anodized finish. Seen on these wheels are a set of titanium bolts that look suitable for the racetrack. These bolts are ultra light, stable, and corrosion resistant.

The tuner is also offering a new set of suspensions that lowers the car’s ride by 30mm. There is also a set of stainless steel exhaust system with 90mm exhaust pipes on each side. This new exhaust system offers a very sporty sound for the SLS.

For the recently presented Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, HAMANN offers forged alloy wheels named DESIGN EDITION RACE "ANODIZED". These wheels, which are produced using the most modern manufacturing processes, bring out the sporty design of the Coupé and ensure the highest load bearing capacity with low weight owing to special aluminium alloys. The look of the DESIGN EDITION RACE "ANODIZED" with its black matt anodized finish and the sophisticated cross-spokes fully meet the sporty expectations that customers have from the SLS AMG. The titanium wheel bolts seem to come directly from the racetrack. These are not only ultra light but are also very stable and corrosion resistant.

The HAMANN-wheel assembly DESIGN EDITION RACE "ANODIZED" are available in the dimensions of 9.0Jx21 (front) and 11.0Jx21 (rear) and are delivered with tyres sizes 245/30 ZR 21 (front axle) and 295/25 ZR21 (rear axle) at a price of 10,500 Euro.

Other sporty highlights are the progressively wound suspensions which lower the centre of gravity of the SLS at the front and rear axle by 30mm, thus improving the handling while going around curves at high speeds. 

In addition, HAMANN offers a stainless steel exhaust system with a very sporty sound for the SLS. Two 90mm exhaust pipes on each side exude an impressive rumble from the V-8 engine.

Very ideal concept car, I love the gesture and the authority it seems to retail. Totally a refining sports car.

Instead of adorning Mercedes-Benz‘s lovely SLS AMG with a traditional body kit full of lip spoilers, Hamann decided not to mess with the SLS AMG’s natural good looks, but rather bolt-on some larger components to make it stand out.

Agree, My favorite is MB, but this car will be a failure....just as the GT5 and GT3 from Bimmer.

Its not going to be faster than cars that cost less and it doesn’t look super car-special

The wing doors isn’t great for this car, I guess a suicide type would fit in perfectly for this one.
