Outside the impending spotlight that will fall down in Geneva next week is a showroom in Dubai that has a vehicle that should get everybody’s attention. The car is a Mercedes SLS AMG, but it’s not just any other SLS AMG, it’s one that was spruced-up by noted tuning firm, Fab Design. If you recall from a few months ago, the company released their tuning package for the SLS AMG so it really begs the question, why do another sample of the same thing?

The answer, as it turns out, is that it’s the same thing, albeit with a different aerodynamic package. Ladies and gentlemen, say hello to the Mercedes SLS AMG Gullstream by FAB Design.

Keeping to its widebody package, this particular SLS AMG comes with re-sculpted fenders with the quarter panels and side skirts making up an entire panel that fits snugly over the supercar’s existing panels. Over at the rear, the SLS AMG also got a retooled bumper fascia with wider quarter panels, giving the rear a more sinister look than FAB Design’s previous work. There’s also a non-functional air scoop on the roof while we’re at it.

Performance modifications on the SLS AMG Gullstream saw FAB Design raise the output of the supercar from the standard 563 horsepower to 607 horsepower with the torque also being raised to a peak 509 lb/ft. All this was done thanks to a new stainless steel sports exhaust system with an integrated valve control and four classic round endpipes, with a pair on each side that FAB Design developed themselves. The engine modifications translates to a 0-62 mph time of just 3.6 seconds, a 0-124 mph time of 11 seconds, and a top speed of 202 mph.

In any case, the widebody version of FAB Design’s SLS AMG looks far more aggressive and intimidating than the ‘standard’ type. It might be a matter of subjectivity as far as how its received, but in our case, it looks pretty impressive.

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 More

Wow. Now that’s the way to pump up an SLS AMG. I really like how the trimmings hugs on to the car’s body and make it more aerodynamic looking.

Wow, expensive Viper. Just buy a Viper, save the $100,000 and get a better looking car that performs better as well.

It sure isn’t pretty, but what an amazing car. I wonder if my wife will let me sell the house to buy one?
