Kicherer Mercedes SL 63 RS facelift package

The Mercedes SL 63 AMG is capable of developing 525 PS and 630 Nm of torque with its 6.2-liter V8 engine. Tuning specialists from Kicherer offered a tuning package that improved its performance and so, the SL63 AMG became the SL 63 RS, capable of producing 560 PS and 670 Nm of torque. The brakes were also improved and now high performance braking system ensures adequate delaying values. Carbon fiber is also the material from which the tuner has made the new decorative parts in the interior, but that also used for the exterior. The package includes a steering wheel as well.

Kicherer transforms the Mercedes SL 63 AMG into the SL 63 RS

Whilst the 6.2 litre large V8 engine in the standard modell produces 525 Ps and 630 Nm with fine tuning Kicherer have teased 560 PS and 670 Nm out of the high performance machine.

Aerodynamic kit made of carbon fibre

So the customer can experience this extra performance Kicherer are simultaneously offering a Vmax-upgrade, which disables the electronic brakes at speeds of 250 km/h. To counter this the ABC-suspension has been electronically adapted to meet the increased demands and equipped with more sporty lines. Kicherer has also improved the brakes. Here a high performance braking system ensures adequate delaying values.

The Kicherer SL 63 RS is of course allowed to display it potential. And for this the tuner has applied an extensive exterior package of laminated carbon fibre. To visually improve the two-seater a new front spoiler, LED daylight driving lights, headlight blenders, a new front grill, a bumper on the front wings along with special mirror covers and a completely new shaped rear diffuser have been added. This latter also frames a sports exhaust system with four exhaust outlets.

Carbon fibre for the boot lid and interior

Downforce system is the name given by Kicherer to the boot lid with integrated spoiler that is also made of laminated carbon fibre and which should clearly increase the downwards pressure on the rear axle.The transformation of the Mercedes SL 63 AMG is rounded off with 20 inch large light metal wheels, which at the front have 255/30 tyres and at the rear are fitted with 305/25 tyres.Carbon fibre is also the material from which Kicherer has made the new decorative parts in the interior. The tuner has also added a new sports steering wheel to the package.
