Mercedes GL-Class is a car that looks amazing in its standard version, but with a few modifications it just became incredible. The work has been made by the German tuner Kicherer who called their package GL 42 Sport Black. The package is based on the GL 420 CDI model and includes a significant power increase, but also impressive exterior and interior package.

The 4,2 liter V8 engine has been tuned to deliver an impressive 380 HP (up from 306 HP) and 663 NM of torque. In order to obtain this power increase the tuner is offering a special PowerConverter that sharpens the electronic gas pedal characteristic curve, causing the heavy vehicle to react even more spontaneously to acceleration commands and enabling powerful acceleration from the very bottom. The two end pipes of the two-pipe sports exhaust system give off a deeply evil roar.

The car is completely covered in matte black exclusive foil, and it sits on a new set of 22" wheels.

I do agree that modification makes the car more incredible! However, I was thinking that its a bad part also because some manufacturer focus more on the modification rather then upgrading the power of the car.

Yeah, good thing that that they didn’t touch much else aside from the engine. The GL 42 is really good performance wise, so there is no need to change that.

Well, they really did a good work here. GL 42 is already a good car in its right, but they still managed to improve a lot on it.

Well the engine output is actually just right for me, since it will get the GL 41 moving at the right pace. The exterior also looks rather good to.

Actually, the power output of this one is just right for that kind of setup. If it went up higher, the car will have to deal with control issues.

Just lovely, I like how they made this one. The wheels are especially eye catching. And the black color really fits this one well.

I really like how the wheels turn out on this one, definitely eye catching for me. I wish they could have ramped the engine up more though.

Yes, I agree! That car looks amazing with in their standard look but later, you’ll realize that you are getting bored with the looks so definitely ask for a new model.
Even so, with this car, enhancement is not bad though. Matte black suit to the luxurious design of the car.

They really did a nice work on this one. The exterior is rather close to the standard GL 42, but it does have enough features to set itself apart.
