Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG by Kicherer

Germans from Mercedes-Benz have received lots of proposals from Kicherer specialists to improve their Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, so their work is not really a mystery to the automaker they know how great things can go. Now, time has come to see what new thing they have in mind. The new package is called the Supercharged GT and it includes a lot of elements by trying to continue the dark theme by offering a matte black foil wrap, but also a hand-crafted mouth piece. This is actually the grille that functions together with a new carbon front lip spoiler, a very small diffuser, vented bonnet and carbon fins offered for the front fenders.

The list of new things offered by Kicherer continues with RS-1 lightweight, deep-dish forged alloy wheels that measure 20-inch on the front axle and 21-inch on the rear one, covered around Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. The V8 engine that powers the supercar is equipped with a supercharger system capable of generating 700 horsepower and 840 Nm of torque. This output enables the new Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Supercharged GT to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds. The electronic Vmax limiter has been removed and so now, the model is capable or reaching a top speed of 300 km/h or at least this is what the carmaker declared. Other modifications in terms of hardware include a new set of coilovers equipped with a lift function that allows the chassis to be raised and lowered by approximately 30 mm, by only pushing a button, but the engineers have also offered a stainless-steel sports exhaust system.

The cockpit can also receive different bespoke carbon fiber accessories and trims both for the dashboard and door panels, for the rear of the seats and the stowage tray and the center console. This is all Kicherer specialists have to offer for now folks.
