Carlsson Aigner CK65 RS Blanchimont

Carlsson, a company that specializes in refinements for Mercedes Benz, has introduced its next limited edition luxury car, the Carlsson, Aigner CK65 RS Blanchimont, an exclusive luxury limousine produced in a very small series. On the inside it features fine leather fittings, offset by a combination of selected woods, Alcantara and aluminum, bewitch and beguile. On the outside, the model is discreet, sporty and seductive available in two colors. The ergonomic design of the Carlsson sports steering wheel in leather and in Alcantara turns driving and controlling the Carlsson Aigner into a particularly enjoyable tactile experience. The aluminum sports pedal pads, illuminated door sill protectors and further visual touches all point the way into a world of luxurious elegance. The production and installation of the entire interior takes over two weeks. The entire entertainment system has been specially adapted to be compatible with the interior of this particular vehicle, thus making it possible to enjoy a sound quality you would otherwise expect to hear only from a top-quality home audio set-up. The complete standard boot space remains the same. Under the hood, the Carlsson, Aigner CK65 RS Blanchimont model is powered by 12-cylinder engine capable of generating 705 horsepower and an electronically limited torque of 1.100 Nm. On the intake side, special sports air filters make sure that aspiration is optimized, while a stainless steel sports exhaust pipe system optimizes exhaust gas back pressure. The output enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds and to reach a top speed of 320 km/h. Unlike the standard form of cast wheels, the Carlsson Ultra Light metal wheels are approximately 50% lighter than the standard form of cast wheels. The Carlsson sports exhaust gas system produces a particularly powerful sound as well as improved output. The price for the new Carlsson, Aigner CK65 RS Blanchimont starts at EUR464.100 in Germany.
