2011 Carlsson Mercedes-Benz S-Class

 Carlsson offers its Carlsson S-Class (type W/V 221) additional sportiness, individuality, and luxury. The 12-cylinder bi-turbo of the top version in the S 600 L now impresses with 600 hp (441kW) instead of the standard 517 hp (380 kW). Its maximum torque is electronically limited to 1024 Newton metres. This increase in power is the result of an optimised engine management approach together with the sports air filter and the sport exhaust system. The tremendous accelerating power brings the Carlsson S-Class in 4.3 seconds from 0 to 100 kph (series: 4.6 seconds) up to the top speed, which is limited to 320 kph. This performance gain is the result of lavish test cycles and many years of experience with the engine of the manufacturer from Stuttgart. The performance enhancement including the sport exhaust system is available for the S 600 L for 4997 Euro including all applicable taxes. Further performance enhancements are available for 6-, 8-, and 12-cylinder engines as well as for Diesel engines. The top model based on the S 63 AMG allows up to 685 hp (504 kW).

 Four additional headlight (fog lights and high beams) as well as vertically integrated LED daytime running lights ensure for safety on the road by day and night. The rear of the S-Class is completed with its rear apron, crowned with a sporty rear spoiler. The visual promise of the new aerodynamic package is kept by the intelligent lowering kit, Carlsson C-Tronic SUSPENSION for vehicles with AIRMATIC or ABC suspension system. The C-Tronic is available for only 1178 Euro and outperforms even the Active Body Control suspension system by Mercedes-Benz.
High-performance tyres from Dunlop (255/35 front and 275/35 ZR 20 rear) provide contact with the road and cover the elegant 20 inch light alloy wheels 1/10 Brilliant Edition (complete wheel set in 19 inch already available from 3583 Euro).
