Carlsson tuning package for the new Mercedes Benz E Class

The German tuner Carlsson has announced that this weekend, at the Tuning World Bodensee, they’ll unveil their tuning program for the new Mercedes Benz E Class. One of the highlights of this program is the new aerodynamics kit, developed by Carlsson’s head designer Rolf Schepp, which features a newly designed front apron, completely re-engineered front wings, side rails, new rear apron with integrated diffuser framed by four stainless steel end pipes and a new rear spolier. The entire body kit is made of lightweight polyurethane (PUR-RIM). The car’s sporty look is completed by a set of 20-inch 1/5 REVO Carlsson wheels, painted in matt black and matt-varnished gloss-turned silver strut.

Carlsson also ‘played’ with the E Class’ engines, so power upgrades are available for almost all the engines in the Mercedes range. The E250 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY received a 40 hp upgrade (available from June), the E350 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY got a 46 hp upgrade (available from July) while the top of the range E500 got a CM50K compressor kit which includes a new exhaust system with racing header, high-performance catalysts and stainless steel mufflers, and is responsible for a 55 hp power increase. To make sure that extra power doesn’t doesn’t fo to waste, Carlsson offers their intelligent lowering kit C-Tronic SUSPENSION, which lowers the car by 43 mm and continuously adjusts the balance between sporty and taut settings for optimal comfort and performance.
