Mercedes SL500 R230 customized by Famous Parts

The German aftermarket specialist Famous Parts decided to take the Mercedes-Benz SL500 (R230) to a higher level. To get to the old SL500, in 2009 they did a facelift to the luxury coupe CL 63 AMG and now the challenge is to update the SL500. Famous Parts made many changes especially to the body of the car using a Prior Design kit.

This means front and rear bumpers, side sills, front mudguards, rear side wall widening and a new hood. Changes occurred in the mirrors and headlights too. The Mercedes- Benz SL 500 is dressed in an elegant white pearl matte metallic paint. It looks so sporty now, as if it were a jet on road. But sporty requires other transformations, too. And the novelties consist of an electronic lowering module, a set of 20-inch Type III FPX wheels with Continental Sport Contact tires and a new rear section in the exhaust system, this being borrowed from the "speed of light"- the SL63 AMG.
