Having some fun with the W218.
The new, second-generation Mercedes-Benz CLS is still arguably the king of the four-door coupes. Its predecessor created the segment and the new W218-generation is trying to perfect it. The team at Prior Design has offered up some assistance to create the perfect styling with its new PD550 Black Edition upgrade for the CLS-Class that turns the coupe into a powerful presence.
The new Prior Design PD550 Black Edition kit for the Mercedes-Benz CLS was designed to complement the factory lines and curvy shape while adding a bit more power to the car’s overall character. The entire kit is made from Dura-Flex FRP (Fiber Reinforced Plastic) and offers good strength and flexibility. No modifications are required to install the kit, and it can be easily painted thanks to a superb surface finish.
All W218 Mercedes-Benz CLS models can be fitted with the PD550 Black Edition body kit. The addition of testosterone begins up front with a new front bumper with larger air intakes and a lower extension to generate downforce at the front axle. The new bodywork flows into the ventilated hood with dual creases and bulging fenders with integrated air outlets to dissipate heat from the braking system.
A pair of side skirts visually lowers the height of the four-door coupe and run all the way to the smooth rear fenders. The PD550 Black Edition kit continues to dazzle at the rear where a new bumper with integrated exhaust outlets and diffuser adds a touch of visual power. Above them sits a trunk-mounted spoiler that generates downforce for better stability at high speeds.
In addition to the bodywork, the Prior Design team also installed some chassis and performance modifications to the Mercedes-Benz CLS to complement the PD550 Black Edition. A new set of in-house wheels with a concave five double-spoke design sit flush inside the fenders with a 9.0 x 20 front and 10.5 x 20 rear setup. The factory air suspension was also given a slight tune to lower the overall ride height for better handling dynamics. The final touch is a new sports exhaust system that ends in quad, trapezoidal tips.
The full Prior Design PD550 Black Edition body kit for the Mercedes-Benz CLS is available for all W218-generation models. Painting and installation can optionally be carried out at the Prior Design headquarters.
