This Gullwing isn’t going away.
It’s hard to believe that the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG could be thought of as “old news”, but in the world of today’s exotics, it’s easier for it to get lost. Even the new Mercedes-AMG GT model range is grabbing at headlines. The team at RFK Tuning, however, isn’t letting it just go away quietly.
The Gullwing monster from Germany is dressed in a full Mirror Chrome Red foil wrap that instantly grabs attention with its light-reflecting finish. The dazzling exterior also wears some contrasting black foil around the prominent front emblem, the badging, and the fuel filler cap.
The new eye-catching design of the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG also benefits from the new set of ten-spoke monoblock alloy wheels. The in-house Elegance E1 wheels feature a progressive concave depth that exudes power. At the front, the E1 wheels measure 9.5 x 20 with 265/30 R20 high-performance tires while the rear comes in at a wider 10.5 x 20 setup, shod in 295/30 R20 rubber.
As an added bonus, the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG was given a KW Variant 3 coilover suspension kit with specially designed valves. The new coilovers allow drivers to customize the height, dampers, and rebound for the perfect setup in a given situation.
While many of the AMG engines are going the direction of turbocharging, the mighty 6.2-liter of naturally-aspirated fury packed into the SLS AMG is quite a thing to behold. RFK Tuning was able to squeeze a total of 605 horsepower and 498 lb-ft. of torque out of the V-8, allowing the super car to reach a higher top speed of 208 mph.
Times may be changing in the world of super cars, but this RFK Tuning Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG won’t be giving up the spotlight anytime soon.
