Mercedes S-Class by Carlsson

Each person in the world is unique and has special expectations. Everybody expects something different from the people or the things surrounding them. This holds true when it comes to cars, too. People have their personal styles and they stay behind the steering wheel of a vehicle which gives expression to their way of life. Carlsson tuning company exists precisely for the individuals who need to emphasize their car and to offer it something special comparing to its sibling cars. The latest project they have finished is based on the Mercedes S-Class.

Especially for the exterior, Carlsson designed a new front bumper with larger air intakes and an "RS" front lip spoiler. The Mercedes S-Class is also equipped with updated revised side skirts, a new rear valance and a special four-tailpipe sports exhaust system. Any client is free to choose from wheels varying in size from 19 to 21 inches. Moving on the inside, the tuner placed wood and leather elements to add a bit of more elegance. There are also available an entertainment system for the back seats of the vehicle, a Wi-Fi hotspot and a performance Revox sound system. And if the customer wishes to add even more style to his car, he can choose to equip it with sheepskin floor mats, a fridge or a humidor.

Carlsson not only took care of the vehicle’s looks, updating some exterior and interior elements, but also did an upgrade of the engine. So the Mercedes S-Class is powered by a 4.7-liter V8 engine that is able to produce 610 HP (448 kW) and 900 Nm (663 lb-ft) of torque. This represents an increase of 154 HP (113 kW) and 200 Nm (147 lb-ft) compared to the regular model. The S63 AMG model is powered by a twin-turbo 5.5-liter V8 engine which can output 780 HP (573 kW) and 1,050 Nm (774 lb-ft) of torque. This is translated into an increase of 195 HP (143 kW) and 150 Nm (110 lb-ft). So, Carlsson seems to have the capability of satisfying every client who needs the company’s services.
