Mercedes CLS63 AMG By Carlsson
Carlsson will bring next week to the 81st edition of the Geneva Motor Show their tuning project based on the Mercedes CLS63 AMG. The new body kit includes a carbon fiber front spoiler lip, stainless steel grille inserts, a rear spoiler as well as a new rear apron that has an integrated diffuser.
As you might already know, Carlsson is not one of those tuning companies that install big air vents, aggressive rear wings and so on and this is the case with this CLS63 AMG. Of course, some significant changes have been done under the car’s bonnet as the engine produces now 82 hp more power in comparison to the standard unit, rounding up the power output to 600 hp (441 kW). They didn’t say how long will it take to do the 0-60 mph sprint, but if we look at the 4.4 seconds necessary for the standard model, the Carlsson should do it in about 4.2 or so.
On the outside you won’t see any noticeable difference, except for those oval tail pipes and the white fine on the rear diffuser. More noticeable changes you will find inside the cabin where they used Nappa leather, carbon fiber, Alcantara, root wood and other natural materials.
They’ve removed the standard suspension of the CLS63 AMG and installed a C-Tronic SUSPENSION that can adjust itself every 150 milliseconds, and lowers the car by 30 mm.
This tuning kit can also be installed on the 2011 CLS350 CDI, except for the power of course. However, the engineers can fit the car with a C-Tronic DIESEL POWER control unit that can boost the output of the engine to 265 hp (195 kW), good enough for a 0-60 mph sprint in 5.9 seconds, while at the same time respecting the EURO5 exhaust emission standards.
