Kicherer now offers a performance package for the latest CLS 500 Coupe, which is powered by a 5.5 liter bi-turbo V8 engine with 408PS (300 kW) and 600Nm (444 lb-ft). 0 to 100 km/h takes 5.5 seconds and the top speed is limited at 250 km/h (155 mph).

However, the tuning company installed a software update and a sports exhaust system to increase the power of the CLS with 62PS and 90Nm. There are no performance data, but a tenth or two of a second will be cut off.

The car stands on hand-made KICHERER RS-1 20" forged wheels fitted with high-performance tires. There are also 6-piston callipers at the front and 4-piston at the rear of the high performance braking system. With its compound discs and the flexible stainless steel hoses this ensures the appropriate negative acceleration for the performance is produced.

The interior boasts highest quality materials like door sills in piano lacquer.The chassis was refurbished to match the exterior character of the car with a HighEnd Foliation in matte black and carbon.

Kicherer CLS looks stunning and it is a great way to improve your boring Merc.
