Aftermarket companies have waited a long time for the Mercedes SLS AMG Roadster. If for nothing else, they just couldn’t wait to get their hands on one to see what kind of tuning program they could make.

At least one tuning company will agree to this because we already have the first tuning program for the SLS Roadster courtesy of Kicherer.

In building the program for the supercar, Kicherer paid careful attention in not completely changing the overall essence of the car, although they did add a few carbon dress-ups to make it stand out as a Kicherer project. The most noticeable is the hand-made GT front grille, but many other fancy parts got added, including a new front spoiler, new side skirts, aerodynamic fins that were added onto the bonnet and on the wings, and a set of three-part, double-spoke 20" RS-1 lightweight wheels.

Kicherer also installed a new coilover "Front Up" suspension system that improves the car’s handling and a stainless steel exhaust with four oval end pipes with an integrated valve control, giving the driver free reign to choose the kind of exhaust tone he prefers.

Without leaving anything behind, Kicherer also took the time to tweak the SLS AMG Roadster’s powertrain with their own sports air filter, taking the Merc supercar’s 6.3-liter V8 engine and increasing its output from the standard 571 horsepower all the way to 630 horsepower. If that isn’t powerful enough, Kicherer is also offering a second performance tweak that includes an exhaust manifold system and a sports catalysor, further bumping up the output to 650 horsepower.

Take all these improvements in and you have a supercar that can accelerate from 0-62 mph in 3.5 seconds with a new top speed of 199 mph. Fantastic.

I love the angst of this roadster! smiley Well, I have to agree either that it already looks very cool and attractive on its body paint even on its aesthetic design. However, I wonder if what its interior will look like?

Its engine is really so great for a roadster like this, and I could also use it on a race because on its speed performance. Anyway, I love the simplicity of it. It looks very appealing on that.

I must say that Mercedes and Porsche would be a good competitor on each other, well there really had an angst and very sophisticated that the dealer would always love. Anyway, this Mercedes SLS AMG is very irresistible on its decent appearance.

This mercedes car is one of the best car ever. The style of this car is really great and the style of the rims of this car looks good. The edge of the bumper is great and the head lights are also great.

SLS AMG roadster is my bet car in brand of Mercedes. However, I don’t like color white for this car. I think red or black is the best for this car. I want to see color red and black of this car.

Though the platform and the style that this SLS AMG Roadster had is looks so ordinary, I’m still impressed with its decent appearance and the engine of it is quite powerful and dangerous for a convertible car.

Mercedes never really want to left behind the other car manufacturers, the beauty of this car is you can use it as a sports car while having a turbo engine in one

Really impressive car. I like the style of the car without a roof like this. Because the roof of this car is leather and if raining on the sounds of rain hear inside the car.
