Next month at the Geneva Motor Show, Mercedes tuner Carlsson will show a new supercar called C25, that is based on the luxury Mercedes SL 600.
Only 25 cars will be produced and according to Carlsson maximum exclusiveness is ensured by only one automobile per country.
In the heart of this luxury high-performance coupe is 6-liter V12 Biturbo engine that produces 753 horsepower and takes it from 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.7 seconds. Top speed is 352 km/h (219 mph).
For speeds up to 100 km/h torque is electronically limited to 1,150 Newton metres, after that the car will make use of all 1320 Nm.
Carlsson CEO Markus Schuster commented that he wanted his company to build a car that was safe both for the road and track.
“Therefore, we deliberately wanted to develop a car which is highly exclusive on the one hand and can be used for the daily journey to office on the other hand,” Schuster said. “All security-relevant regulations such as pedestrian protection, crash behaviour, ESP, ABS, Airbag systems are identical to large series editions with most modern standards.”
Compared to the racing machines with MOT approval, the Carlsson C25 offers its driver smooth journeys on Alpine passes and also on city roads or not perfectly even surfaces.
Big plus is that the Carlsson C25 offers the advantage that every Mercedes-Benz dealer can maintain the car. As the automobile is based on the latest Mercedes-Benz technology, it is not necessary to drive to a specialty garage for a service.
