Kicherer offers a tuning program for the Mercedes GL 420 CDI and this is how the Kicherer GL 42 Black Line is born. The model is now capable of developing 360 horsepower and 900 Nm of torque with its V8 engine. This also means it can reach a top speed of 280 km/h. The suspension is electronically adjusted and comes up with a much sportier characteristic curve preventing the SUV from loosing its temper. The accelerator pedal is electronically optimized in order to make sure that the engine will release its performance more spontaneously. All these technical modifications were brought to perfection by a two-pass sports exhaust system.
A SUV, and particularly one which is driven by a diesel engine, is not quite a lazy car. Mercedes tuner KICHERER shows how the Mercedes GL 420 CDI learns to fly in its recent reincarnation named KICHERER GL 42 Black Line.
The KICHERER GL draws its extended force resources from a modified engine control unit wrenching 360hp and a torque of 900Nm from the V8 engine. To make sure that this excess in performance may be properly enjoyed, the electronic Vmax limit has been raised to 280km/h. The suspension is electronically adjusted and comes up with a much sportier characteristic curve preventing the SUV from loosing its temper. The accelerator pedalâ€™s response behaviour, too, has been electronically optimised in order to make sure that the engine will release its performance more spontaneously. These technical modifications are brought to perfection by a two-pass sports exhaust system. To illustrate the increased motor activity visually, the KICHERER GL has been provided with an off-road package comprising, among other things, running boards, larger fenders, a new grille and a roof-edge spoiler as well as numerous black body trims. A complete special edition 21â€œ wheelset with wide-base tyres is the cherry on top. Inside the car, KICHERER drivers will enjoy a sports steering wheel, trim parts made of genuine carbon as well as a complete leather equipment covering even the roof interior and many other elements. All tuning components are sold singly or are already integrated in a complete vehicle. The test car price of the GL 42 Black Line is 125,820 Euros.
