Automobile manufacturer Carlsson introduces two new vehicle models based on the Mercedes-Benz CLS (type C 218) and the Mercedes Benz SLK (R172). They have been built as right-hand drive models upon the request of an English aristocratic family at Carlsson’s manor house “Gut Wiesenhof” in Merzig, Germany.
The aerodynamics package for the SLK, consisting of front spoiler and rear apron insert (for vehicles with AMG sports package, Code 950) emphasises the sporty lines and ensures additional downforce on the rear axle (front spoiler and rear insert are both available for 737 € including VAT).). The new front spoiler lip RS (available for € 653, also available in real carbon fibre) brings the front look to a full circle. The electro-polished stainless steel grille inserts (534 €) replace the standard plastic honeycomb in the front spoiler. The rear view is dominated by stainless-steel sports rear silencer with two tailpipes on the left and right and in the typical oval-shaped Carlsson design (1.545 €). By optimising the flow, Carlsson sound engineers have developed a sporty, powerful engine sound that effectively emphasizes the character of the SLK. The optional diffuser inserts and the stylish rear spoiler, the contact pressure onto the rear axle is increased even further.
Moreover, Carlsson draws on his many years of experience in the performance enhancement of engines and presents for the first time, the Carlsson C-Tronic for the current four-cylinder CGI engine generation. Additional control equipment ensures that the engine’s performance is increased by 27 – 40 hp. The new C-Tronic mobilizes existing reserves of the unit and by connecting it to the vehicle electronics, guarantees that safety limits are always respected and the engine is exposed to excessive wear. This new generation of additional control equipment was developed during elaborate endurance tests. The automobile manufacturer protects this durability with its three-year factory warranty from the date of installation.

Thanks to the C-Tronic CB20, the SLK 200 CGI which uses a base power of 184 hp (135 kW), now achieves 211 hp (155 kW) or even 224 hp (165 kW) with the C-Tronic CB20S. The C-Tronic CB25 increases the standard 204 hp (150 kW) of the SLK 250 CGI to 231 hp (170 kW). The performance level of the CB25S is even increased to 239 hp (165 kW) (The CB20 and CB25 C-Tronic are available for 1,416 €, and the C-Tronic CB20S and CB25S may be purchased for 2.011 €). The center of gravity may be lowered up to 30 mm, thus increasing the driving dynamics even further, without adversely effecting the driving comfort. Furthermore, the lowering kit (368 €) in conjunction with wheels that measure up to 20 inches, bring the vehicle’s image to a full circle. Complete wheel sets start at a size 18 inches and are available from only 2.300 €.
