Carlsson 2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class W212
Carlsson has unveiled their latest project based on the 2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class W212 Facelift. The premium saloon has received a number of upgrades including styling and performance mods.
The exterior boasts a new front spoiler, a pair of revised side skirts and a new rear bumper with an RS-type diffuser. There is also a new rear spoiler and different sets of alloy wheels fitted with proper tires. The new diffuser houses a sports exhaust system with deep voice and nice tail pipes (105 x 70mm ovals).
The range of Carlsson alloy wheels include 1/10 design available in Graphite Edition – 19" and 20", and in the Brilliant or Titanium Edition in 18", 19" and 20". The 1/16 RS wheel design comes as the Diamond or Titanium Edition in 18", 19" and 20" diameters, with the Brilliant Edition available in 18" and 19".
The stance is further improved by a set of new lowering springs (-30 mm). There is also an adjustable coil-over suspension which lowers the front by 15 to 35 mm and the rear by 20 mm. The models with Airmatic suspension can be outfitted with a C-Tronic Air-4 module that reduces the ride height by approximately 30 mm.
The interior of the tuned E-Class comes with a premium leather and Alcantara upholstery as well as wood, carbon fiber or aluminum trim elements. There are also illuminated sill plates, alloy pedals, branded floor mats and alloy door-lock pins.
