Mercedes-Benz SL R230 Facelift  by PIECHA Design

Piecha Design went far ahead of their times with the new 2011 Mercedes-Benz SL R230 Facelift. With a comprehensive refinement package the R230-series SL became an elegant and ultra-fashioned car, thanks to the special build-in housings with LED daytime headlights that include fog lamps.

The facelift package includes monoblock wheel rims mounted on a polished titanium silky-gloss support with a huge 11x20 with 305/25 R20 available for the rear wheel cases. The matches designed by Piecha are available for all the 219 and 218 series of the CLS models. The chassis can be lowered trough two methods: either trough a Piecha-lowering module (-30 mm) or trough the Piecha lowering springs, both for 30 mm. on the tail it has installed a PIECHA Quadro sports exhaust system, which ensures sporty symmetry and a low growl. For a clearly acceleration they have installed a PIECHA power converter and a comfort vario roof module, that permits the closing and the opening of the roof at speeds higher than 60 km/h.

PIECHA DESIGN - Mercedes-Benz SL R230 Facelift 2008

A true designer car!

Things that are timeless and good just don't tend to go out of fashion. The Mercedes-Benz designers provided perfect proof of that with the R230-series SL. They were far ahead of their times. By now, the famous roadster is in its eleventh year of production. Its looks have remained nearly identical through the years.

For all SL R230 models starting at the March 2008 facelift, Mercedes specialist PIECHA Design from Rottweil offers a comprehensive refinement package.

PIECHA is the only tuner to develop special build-in housings with LED daytime headlights, incl. fog lamp. They can be delivered ready for installation for the serial bumper and the AMG bumper of the SL63 and SL65. For the serial bumper, a refined, elegant, three-part front spoiler lip was developed as well to harmonise perfectly with the daytime headlights. PIECHA also offers a harmonious rear spoiler lip that is as elegant as it is effective. It provides an additional push down on the rear axle.

Elegant: PIECHA MP1 Monoblock!

The new PIECHA MP1 monoblock wheel rims in the front-polished titanium silky-gloss version are true eye-catchers. They are available at 9.5x20 with 255/30 R20 for the front, and at a gigantic 11x20 with 305/25 R20 for the rear wheel cases of the SL. The beautiful brand-new PIECHA designer wheel set matches all the CLS models of the 219 and 218 series with the same tyres. The car body also does not require any rework. Proper wheel covering, however, requires that the chassis is lowered.

The SL-chassis can be lowered either by classic Piecha lowering springs (-30 mm) for the coil-spring version, or a Piecha-lowering module (-30 mm) for the ABC-chassis.

PIECHA Quadro 4-tube exhaust system!

The stainless steel PIECHA Quadro sports exhaust system installed at the tail is a true designer piece. With its four end tubes in right/left loops, it ensures sportively perfect symmetry and a saturated, low growl.

There are some "must have" products that should be installed in any SL. Among others, they are the legendary PIECHA power converter to ensure clearly improved acceleration, and the comfort vario roof module with many additional comfort functions, among others permitting opening and closing of the roof at a speed of up to 60 km/h.

The result: Good can still be improved! As usual, PIECHA Design presents a plethora of interesting tuning components for the R230-series SL, every single one of them matching the car body lines of the cult roadsters in unparalleled perfection.
