The 2007 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class roadster has finally received its own exclusive individualization kit.

Although the new package doesn’t bring anything new in the powerplant department, it still allows you to make the comfortable sports coupe look more like one of those aggressive, mind-numbing AMG-tuned street rockets that cost twice as more and, let’s face it, can be used as daily drivers only by Formula One pilots.
