German tuner, Kicherer, has prepared a new performance package based on the latest generation Mercedes CLS500. The package includes matte foil, consistent performance increase, exclusive wheel/tire combinations, and the intense use of high-quality carbon-fiber elements.

The new package is called "Edition Black" and as its name suggests, it is covered with a matte-black foil that transforms the Mercedes into an exclusive one-of-a-kind car. It sits on a new set of 20" RS-1 forged wheels developed in house and combined with a sportive chassis adjustment. The black theme flows into the interior with a specifically developed, black-finish interior set.

While the exterior and interior modifications were subtle, Kicherer spared no expanse for the engine’s changes. The CLS500’s 4.7L V8 engine was massaged to deliver 440 HP and 464 lb-ft of torque, up from the standard 402 HP and 443 lb-ft of torque. Perfect deceleration is provided by a high-performance brake system with steel flex brake lines. The tuner will also be offering a Power Converter system that eliminates the automatic gear inertia.

Yeah right! Well, I must say that I love the most it’s very efficient and impressive engine of it and I really find it so fun to drive with on that. Just too bad that it doesn’t have any interesting feature on its interior.

It still looks very exclusive and decent although it only has a simple styling and detailing. Anyway, I think it will look more admiring if it is on a sleek body paint than with its matte color.

Sadly, to say, but I’m not really so impressed with the exterior and interior packaged of this vehicle. However, I love the fact that it had an efficient engine output which is good for this sedan.

The engine of this one is quite cool enough for it, but I wonder if what are the other specifications of it. I also noticed that it only had a simple platform and detailing, and I wonder if it is on a matte color.

The interior part of this car is simple and the exterior part is simple. However, I don’t know if the performance of this car simple too.

Sorry to say, but the interior looks so boring, and it seems that this car is not from Mercedes. So very unlike on Mercedes’s cars and I don’t think the it looks subtle just like the article said about it.

Edition black of Mercedes is great. The simple car like this is enough for me. Style and design are really simple, but its good to eye of the people who see this in the road.

It has a very nice interior indeed. This car has a simple design but looks so speedy. It’s a very simple but well-built car.
