Not one to be outdone by its more opulent contemporaries, German tuner Hofele Design has released a new styling program for the Mercedes ML-Class. This package comes chalk full of goodies in the form of a comprehensive styling kit and suave performance enhancements.

Called the "Starcruiser GT 550," the program comes with 14 new components for the German SUV, highlighted by a new front bumper that can now carry larger air intakes and daytime running LED lights. Adding to the aggressive new profile of the ML-Class are new wheel arch extensions, a new rear apron diffuser with quad exhaust tail pipes, a new set of 20" and 22" REVERSO II alloy wheels in the front and rear, respectively, and a lowering module that drops the SUV’s ride height by 40 mm.

Inside, the ML-Class gets treated to a bi-color leather interior with fancy seams and stitching work. There’s also the presence of leather on the steering wheel, arm rests, and door panels, which is always a good thing for a vehicle of the ML-Class’ caliber.

Hofele Design also tweaked the SUV’s engine, netting improved output of 312 horsepower and 516 lb/ft of torque, an increase from the standard 258 horsepower and 457 lb/ft of torque figures.

I wonder how it would look like inside. They said that it has bi-color leather interior. I hope they will post the interior of this car.

Looks like a lowered SUV when you look at in both sides. It’s not that bulky like the other SUV which makes this vehicle very unique.
