The Swiss tuner FAB-Design has taken on the new Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG to make it that much more individual. Though the company has yet to publish all the details, we do know that the tuner found a way to extract 40 more ponies from 'Gullwing' door supercar's V8 engine pushing total output to 611-horsepower. The extra oomph allows the SLS AMG to do the 0-to-100km/h (62mph) sprint in 3.7 seconds instead of the stock model's time of 3.8 seconds.
The tuner changed the front bumper, side skirts, rear bumper and diffuser. They have added a hood scoop, rear spoiler, 20 inch rims, lower suspension using special springs and 40hp of additional performance. The total horsepower is now 611hp. The sprint from 0-100km/h has increased with only 0.1 second to 3.7 seconds.
In the performance department, the 6.3-liter V8 engine has been equipped with a stainless steel sport exhaust system which helps to increase output from 571 PS (420 kW / 563 hp) to 611 PS (449 kW / 603 hp). Additionally, a sport suspension has been fitted to ensure the SLS handles like a proper supercar.
FAB DESIGN SLS: Individuality at the highest level
The Swiss tuner FAB-Design has taken on the new AMG Mercedes SLS to make it that much more individual.
True to the company's philosophy of creating something even more individual from a noble factory vehicle, a more accentuated version of the wing-door car has been produced. Especially the aerodynamics benefited from the high class fine tuning. To do this the developers from Mellingen developed and mounted a sporty front spoiler lip with vertically mounted daylight driving lights along with a rear apron with integrated diffuser in a similar design to the front element.
An equally output boosting rear spoiler that was specially constructed to perfectly harmonise with the factory mounted extendable counterpart crowns it all.
The optical and aerodynamic cherry on the SLS cake are the side skirts made of visible carbon fiber.
A further highlight on the retro-sportscar are the 3-part 20 inch "Evoline" complete wheels. The classic hole-design thus harmonises perfectly with the equally classic sportscar silhouette of the FAB SLS.
In addition a fitting sports suspension set was mounted that equally satisfies the requirement for both comfort and sport.
At the rear of the vehicle a FAB stainless steel sports exhaust with four oval endpipes lets the exhaust gases go sonorously free. Integrated valve steering gives the driver the possibility - according to the occasion - of choosing between a sonorous and a discrete sound.
The FAB developers also worked on the improving the performance and thereby achieved an every day capability of 611 PS - instead of the normal 571 PS of factory vehicles.
