To say that Prior Design has been pretty busy with aerodynamic programs for the past couple of months is the first understatement anyone has said since the calendar turned to 2012.

The German tuning firm has released plenty of new widebody kits, including one for the Mercedes-Benz E-Class less than a month ago and another for the BMW 5-Series only six days ago. Now it appears that they’re far from finished, especially after they released the first teaser photo of their next project involving Mercedes’ resident supercar, the SLS AMG.

The entire kit is still not complete, but judging from the teaser photo, Prior Design is taking a different approach on the SLS AMG with a kit that’s far more aggressive and flashy than any of their previous works.

Our trained eyes are seeing a vented hood, a revised front bumper with a few air intakes, and a spoiler lip that appears to have been made in carbon fiber. In addition, we’re also looking at new side vents, new side skirts, and flared wheel arches. Though there are no shots of the rear end of the SLS AMG, we expect Prior Design to have an extensive kit on that side too, possibly a rear wing, a boot lid, and maybe even a new diffuser with new exhaust tailpipes.

Performance figures are probably out of the question basing on recent history, but that’s not to say that the SLS AMG is a slouch on the road that needs extra juice. The German supercar still packs a 6.3-liter V8 engine that develops 563 horsepower and 479 lb/ft of torque. If we could get that bodykit with those performance numbers, we’d gladly take it too.

I love how Mercedes makes car wonderful and stunning. The details in the exterior are the best. The bumper was fully-functional.

Who would not agree to have this car if given a chance? Even me if I could get a chance to buy this car I would buy it. Aside from looks, it also has the angst in the road.

Mercedes has a lot of designer, don’t you think? Haha. Another is by Inden Design, and now, from Prior design. For me, they have the almost the same design and it looks fairly great on its exterior looks.

Yeah! Looks like it has the wings to fly on! I love the design. I’d wished to have this one someday. A perfect vehicle for us because you will not wish for more. Anything from this model looks fabulous inside and out.

Wow! This SLS AMG is gonna rule the road. With that V8 engine that develops 563 HP, I am sure that a mind-blowing ride will do the magic upon its aggressive drive.

Wow! What a design! This one really rocks and very futuristic!!The exterior design really speaks for what this car can really offer. I just hope to see more of this car, the interior and the back part.
