Mercedes-Benz SLS - MAE Design GmbH

The Mercedes Benz SLS features a revised engine with new magnesium intake and eight individual velocity stacks. The intake is fed by two electronically controlled throttle plates, giving this monster of a Mercedes a whopping 563 horsepower. For years MAE has been considered one of the most sought after brands for Mercedes Benz wheels. After the company experienced internal conflict it has now returned under new management. Along with new management comes a revision in high quality wheel designs. The company offers a huge selection of wheel in many different styles. Pictured here is the “Crownia” wheel rim, with 11.5 x 20 inch fronts and 12.5 x 20 inch rears. These tires are wrapped in fine Michelin rubber, size 285/25 and 305/25. MAE also offers several different lowering options for air suspension bodies that can be conveniently adjusted from the steering wheel. MAE also specializes in high performance exhausts, and will be releasing a new body kit for the CL 500 shortly.

For many years, MAE has been synonymous with exclusive accessories for Mercedes Benz brand vehicles. In particular the characteristic wheel rims were sought-after by all Mercedes fans around the world. Then things got quieter around the brand with its concise three letters. Now MAE takes off again under a new management, presenting all-new wheel designs right away!

Lots has been said and written on the brand of MAE. After many complicated years and several disputes, the brand rights finally even ended up in the United States. Now it is time to start anew! In Berlin, MAE is now taking off for real again under the management of Tuning original Yüksel Akkus, the official license holder representing the brand of MAE in Germany exclusively. The new Berlin headquarters, which also house a shop, opens on 23 April 2011. Branches are located in Munich and Marburg, offering the traditional wheel rims as well as new designs like the brand-new "Majestic" wheel. This wheel rim with its strong turbine looks even has screwed-on rotor blades, making it a complete new development. The wheel rim can be delivered with flat and fine double-stage bed. It is available in widths from 8 to 14 inch; the diameter range goes from 20-24 inch. Every single customer wish will come true here! Another highlight is the re-launch of the popular "Crown Jewel" wheels, also available in many different sizes. The range here goes up to a brutal 7.5 inches outer bed, guaranteeing for extreme looks. The black CL 500 uses fine wheels in the sizes of 11.5x20 inch in front and 12.5x20 inch at the rear axle. The Michelin tyres in 285/25 and 305/25 give the heavy coupé a heavy stance.

Finally, the new "Crownia" wheel rim enters the ring. With its massive look, it also matches the Mercedes vehicles well. A particularly nice match for these wheels is the luxurious sports car SLS, not least due to their generous dimensions of 9.5 and 11.5x22 inch. With 315/25 rear tyres and even 265/30 rubber at the front axle, even this SLS 63 AMG will not need to complain of lacking traction. The delivery range will be continually developed over the next years, so that the wheels will be available in more and more sizes and bolt circles. Therefore, MAE will in future also be available or the owners for fine car bodies of other brands.

There are also some other areas with great offers. MAW offers new lowering modules for serial air-suspension car bodies. They can be remote-controlled via the phone buttons in the original steering wheel. This means that the car can be lowered by the push of a button! Apart from this, stainless steel exhaust systems are offered in three different volume stages. They will be able to live up to any genuine part where precise fit is concerned.

The car body has also been considered by MAE. At the moment, they are developing a body kit to be introduced on the market for selected Mercedes vehicles in autumn.
