German Special Customs Mercedes-Benz S-Class Claimed the Best
German Special Customs Mercedes-Benz S-Class is the second tuning review for the day. Under the spotlight is again a tuning company from Germany. The specialists at GSC say that they have developed new styling kit for the ‘best car in the world'. Whether it is the best one, we could debate for hours, couldn't we? But here we are going to focus more on the customization process rather than the aforementioned argument.
Many might think that when the S-Class is claimed ‘the best among others', then it should not receive any more updates. However, GSC experts didn't find necessary to accept everything for granted, so they made the decision to work for that title. And this is what they have achieved.
Distinctive but Subtle?
The question here is whether subtle changes can give the vehicle a distinctive presence? The answer you will find after you read about the tuning process. A ‘distinctive but subtle' Mercedes-Benz aero pack has been created for the long wheelbase of the S-Class that comes with additional 15cm … sizes count, don't they?
Basically, the kit comprises of several new elements like the more aggressive front bumper and spoiler with integrated air splitter. Above them, we see huge central air intake on both sides of which we spot two smaller intakes. They incorporate LED DRLs.
The link between the new front and new rear bumper is made via the discreet side skirts. A detail important to mention is that the bumper at the tail features several design and functional enhancements. These include vertical air outlets for the wheel housings and a black valance insert around the trapezoidal tailpipes. As a matter of fact, the German Special Customs Mercedes-Benz S-Class tailpipes are part of an in-house made sports exhaust system.
The front is also characterized by a custom GT-bonnet and you might have already noticed that Mercedes-Benz' emblem wasn't featured in it. Of course, there is almost no one who could not recognize the distinctive appearance of the cars. In addition, the new bonnet also features sculpted lines and a couple of integrated vents.
Foil Over Carbon?
As you can see the white exterior paint scheme has been contrasted via black parts. In fact, this isn't a special material but a simple effect achieved via foil-wrapping. This is where I am a little bit disappointed, because I have expected more from the ‘best car in the world', right? This ‘maximum visual impact', as the tuner says, has been achieved with high gloss black foil that covers the front splitter, grille and bonnet vents as well as the roof panel, door mirrors and etc.
The good news is that German Special Customs Mercedes-Benz S-Class can be ordered with the aero kit in GRP or carbon fiber. ECU remapping is also in the options list. Rounding out this tuning is the addition of new 21-inch BBS CH-R II alloys coupled with Continental Sport Contact tyres.
In summary, GSC didn't make anything spectacular, but has kept it simple. Still, the S-Class looks very well, but it is not in its best shape.
