The Kicherer Mercedes-Benz CLS500 “Edition Black”

Sleek and smooth coupe.

The new W218 Mercedes-Benz CLS carried over much of the same sleek and sexy styling characteristics as the previous generation that started the “four-door coupe” movement. Kicherer, the German tuning specialists, have coated the CLS500 in a new wrap and upgraded the chassis, engine, and wheels.

The Kicherer CLS Edition Black is a special car that uses a matte black exterior color to highlight its curves and create an intimidating appearance. The entire CLS500 is covered with a Kicherer matte black foil wrap with carbon fiber side mirrors and grille features. New multi-piece Kicherer RS-1 forged wheels in a 20-inch diameter were fitted to reduce weight and add a touch of style. The stance is finished off with a sport suspension upgrade.

The Kicherer Mercedes-Benz CLS also boasts more output from the 4.7-liter twin-turbocharged V-8. A number of modifications from the German tuner help the V-8 produce 440 horsepower and 464 lb-ft. of torque. Kicherer installed a new PowerConverter that reduces the inertia from the automatic transmission. A new high-performance brake system utilizes new stainless steel brake lines and helps to bring the matte black sedan to a halt.

The Kicherer Mercedes-Benz CLS500 Edition Black is currently available as a complete car or as individual accessories. Customers also have the option to upgrade to a black-finish interior for a more luxurious ride. Pricing has not been released.
