Although the AMG badge always means that your Mercedes-Benz is not only expensive but is also darn fast, guys from the German Carlsson tuning company have decided to add some more power and luxury to the already outstanding Mercedes-Benz SL 55 AMG sports car, making it even more exclusive. As usual, you can either buy all the numerous enhancements separately or simply turn the car over to the studio and get it retuned and personalized on premises.




The resulting vehicle, called the Carlsson CK55 RS, features a customized exhaust system and a supercharged 5.5-liter V8 M113 engine with maximum power output of 601 hp and a maximum torque of 810 Nm, available at 2600 rpm.

Managing all this power wisely, one can accelerate the CK55 RS from zero to 62 mph in just 4.2 seconds, and reach 124 mph in just 13.06 secs.

The vehicle’s top speed is electronically limited at 206 mph (332 km/h).

A tuned car with such a great dynamics usually tends to be less manageable than an original vehicle, so Carlsson’s tuners have lowered the SL 55 AMG by some 30 mm, using an intelligent C-Tronic suspension, capable to automatically adjust itself to changing driving conditions while maintaining driver’s comfort.

Of course, the CK55 RS comes with a set of custom wheels.

Price is still unknown.
