2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Supercharged GT by Kicherer

2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Supercharged GT by Kicherer

German tuner Kicherer is known for creating stunning aftermarket programs for many Mercedes-Benz vehicles and now they’ve released their drop dead gorgeous 2012 Mercedes SLS GT AMG Supercharged. The tuner upgraded the car’s 6.3 liter V8 engine with a supercharger, allowing it to push out 700 ponies, which means it can sprint from 0-62 mph in just 3.4 seconds and can hit well over 186 mph with no probs.

But the power upgrade isn’t all they’ve added. They’ve also outfitted the the luxury sports car with a matte black paint job, carbon fiber rear diffuser, and a hand crafted vertical fan grilles paying homage to the 1952 300 SL Carrera Panamericana. This SLS AMG version also doesn’t have huge a huge Silver Arrows badge on its center grille which doesn’t take away anything form the  overall profile of the vehicle. Finishing off the exterior modifications are a new set of Kicherer’s own 20? and 21-inch RS-1 light-weight forged wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires.

The interior also gets upgraded with lots of carbon fiber, particularly on the door interiors, the center console, the door sill protectors, the rear of the seats, and the stowage tray.
