Mercedes GL500 by Carlsson


Perhaps when it comes to more power and performance, the GL 500 SUV of Mercedes wouldn’t necessarily be the first choice. Carlsson instead comes out with an impressive new body kit for the big SUV. With 33 mm lower and a full bodykit the giant GL500 has now a sporty sculpted look. A C-Tronic suspension system guarantees the downforce on the car at speeds above 120km/h, ensuring adequate suspension travel and therefore preserving predictable handling characteristics.
98.

With new performance achieved the big SUV can now reach 100km/h in only 6.1 seconds, while the top speed is limited at 248km/h. Such kind of performance, 388 hp V8 requires a special ‘engine kit’ that tunes the power up by over 12%. A special quad-tip exhaust adds an appropriate soundtrack to the new found power. At the interior, the CK50 is finished with a combination of nappa leather, carbon fiber and wood trim at choice and each car can be customized as the buyer desires.
