Hamann SLR Volcano

The German model, Mercedes-Benz SLR received a tuning package from tuning company HAMANN. The total makeover is made of extremely light full carbon and consists of front- and rear wing extensions and also new side skirts attachments and sheathings. The front view of the Mercedes-Benz SLR Volcano is perfected with a newly designed bonnet which enhances the overall impression by its integrated hood scoop. For under the hood, the tuners have placed a strong diffuser which improves the output of the car in combination with the large rear wing. A newly developed front spoiler renders the necessary contact pressure at the front axle. To transfer the output to the road, the engineers have provided 21-inch rims called EDITION RACE covered in tires measuring 255 / 30 ZR 21 at the front and 345 / 25 ZR 21 at the back which render an optimal road grip. The design of the light forged wheel combines vitality and elegance and also fills out the wheel house. The new Mercedes-Benz SLR Volcano with its V8 engine is now capable of generating 700 horsepower and 830 Nm of torque. The necessary modifications include a newly programmed control unit, especially developed high performance exhaust manifolds and a belt pulley combination for the serial compressor. The model received a six end pipes of the sport exhaust system. The output enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.6 seconds and to reach a top speed of 348 km/h. In terms of interior we will find new pedals and foot rests in aluminum as well as noble door sill protectors and headrests with embossed embroidered HAMANN-Logos. If the client wants, the roof interior, all pillars, the cockpit including the steering wheel and the sun visors can hereby by adjusted in terms of color. The tuner only uses Alcantara.
