Wimmer RS has prepared a raft of mechanical upgrades that among other things, include new cylinder heads, sport cam shafts, modified throttle, custom exhaust and catalyst, and a software optimization, which all help to bump output to 615Hp (624PS).
That’s makes the C63 AMG Wagon far more powerful than supercars like the Ferrari 458 Italia and Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera, both of which make do with 562hp (570PS).
Other go-fast features include a club sport suspension from KW, which was specifically tailored for this model by KW automotive, spacers from H & R, as well as a limited slip differential from the Drexler Company.
A set of 19-inch aluminum wheels from BBS wrapped in Dunlop high-performance tires are also part of the package, while the yellow wrap comes courtesy of a company named ‘BRUXSAFOL’.
The extra kick allows the SLS AMG Roadster to hit 100km/h (62mph) from standstill in 3.6 seconds and top out at 330km/h (205mph), an improvement of 0.2 seconds and 13km/h (8mph) over the factory model respectively.
A high performance brake system along with a stainless steel exhaust system with throttle control and changes to the suspension that include a revamped AMG RIDE CONTROL and sport springs, are also part of the package.
On the styling front, the SLS AMG Roadster gets a front apron, a boot spoiler and side skirts made from carbon fiber, plus a new set of 20-inch alloy rims shod in tires size 265/30-20 on the front and 315/25-20 on the rear axle, and carbon fiber trim for the interior.
In Germany, the entire package is priced at €85,130 (US$104,400).
Slimane Toubal, a professional clay artist from France who has worked with several automakers around the world including Audi, Honda and more recently, at PSA Peugeot-Citroen’s China office, used his free time to create his own vision of what a modern-day 300 SL should look like.
The result is a design study that is more heavily influenced by the styling of the original 1950s 300 SL compared to the current SLS AMG.
Toubal penned both a coupe with the classic ‘Gullwing’ style doors and a roadster model, which unlike the soft-top SLS AMG, uses a retractable hardtop.
