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 coupe-like silhouette of the CLS was received by the automobile manufacturer and refined with a comprehensive aerodynamic package. The new front spoiler and front spoiler lip RS made of real carbon ensure an agile appearance of the luxury sedan, and this look is supported by the black steel grille inserts. The rear spoiler and the rear apron insert with its integrated Carlsson RS rear diffuser made ​​of real carbon fibre add extra downforce and thus provide more stable road holding even at high speeds. The vehicle's performance is also impressive: Under the stretched bonnet of the top version CK63 RS, which is based on the CLS 63 AMG with performance package, Carlsson optimised the engine to 649 hp (477 kW) instead of its standard 557 hp (410 kW). The maximum torque has been increased from 800 to 900 Nm at 2000 - 4500 rpm. Thus, the acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h was reduced from 4.3 sec to 4.1 sec.

And with that, the complete Carlsson sports exhaust system with four oval tailpipes made ​​of stainless steel produces a roaring sound. For the smaller petrol and diesel engines of the C 218, Carlsson offers advanced technology and performance improvements that come with the standard Carlsson factory warranty of three years. For example, the Carlsson CK50 based on the CLS 500 has now 475 hp (349 kW) and 687 Nm of torque instead of the standard 408 hp (300 kW) and 600 Nm. With its alloy wheels, Carlsson Design 1/10 to 20 inches, the automobile manufacturer from "Gut Wiesenhof" is testing new grounds in the wheel design. Due to the complex manufacturing process, the forged wheel 1/10 Ultra Light has a weight advantage of 40 percent compared to conventional wheels with a higher standard strength and significantly improved concentricity. Alternatively, the wheel design 1/10 is also available as cast wheel in the variants Brilliant Edition, Graphite Edition and Titanium Edition.

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.

The interior refinement of both models is the absolute climax: The automobile manufacturer Carlsson maintains its traditional craftsmanship using the finest materials such as leather, the finest Alcantara, carbon fiber, fine natural woods and various other exclusive natural materials. The choice of materials and superior execution attest to the uncompromising quality of the company-own upholstery department. The front seats, including the seats' back panels are reupholstered using Carlsson NAPPA EXCLUSIVE. In the CLS the back bench, as well as all two/four door panels received the same treatment. This vat-pigmented leather offers the feel of a fine leather glove and with a thickness of 1 to 1.4 mm is particularly resilient. Thanks to the sophisticated tanning process, the pores of the hide remain intact and thus prevent the effect known as heat accumulation. Even in the winter time, this natural material adapts immediately to the individual's body temperature.

Other high-quality components, such as velour floor mats with the Carlsson logo, scuff plates with blue illuminated Carlsson logo and polished aluminium door locking pins finish off the vehicle's interior.

With the comprehensive customization program, the automobile manufacturer once again demonstrates its keen sense of the stylistic features of Mercedes-Benz. Thanks to the refinement by Carlsson, the standard-production, yet elegant CLS and the sporty SLK become truly unique individual vehicles.

Of the course, for all components of this finishing process, the three-year Carlsson factory warranty applies up to 100,000 km; and a TÜV certificate is always included, so the components can be easily entered into the registration papers. "Each year, approximately 150 vehicles make it through our workshop, costing between 5,000 to 85,000 €. Each vehicle finished upon our clients special request", says Markus Schuster, CEO of the Automobile Manufacture Carlsson Autotechnik.
