2011 Carlsson CGL45 Based On Mercedes-Benz GL Grand Edition Unveiled

by Sebastian Bivin

The 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show is almost open, so automakers and tuners are starting to offer details with what will de on display at their stands from September.
Carlsson, a German aftermarket specialist, will bring this year a refined version of the Mercedes GL Grand Edition (introduced at the end of May this year) called the CGL45, on which they fitted an aerodynamic package and added an extra 15 percent more performance to the engine. 

This new aerodynamics package for the special edition Mercedes-Benz GL Grand Edition comes with widened wheel arches, a front spoiler and a chrome-finished radiator grille with the Carlsson logo. The rear view has a new rear skirt with four oval stainless steel exhaust pipes fitted to the sports rear silencer. Also, the LED daytime running lights in the front spoiler lip are part of Carlsson’s lighting concept.

In terms of performance, the 3.0-litre V6 powering the Carlsson CGL45 Mercedes GL Grand Edition has been increased from 265 HP (195 kW) and 620 Nm of torque to 310 HP (228 kW) and 700 Nm. Carlsson also offers self-developed performance packages for further six- and eight-cylinder engines. The V8 engine of the top model based on the GL 500 reaches 435hp with a maximum torque of 600 Newton metres.

For more stability and for a sportier look, the C-Tronic suspension lowers the vehicle by 30 millimeters. A 22 inch wheelset 1/5 Evo Brilliant Edition was specially developed for the GL. The one-piece light alloy wheels are shod with Vredestein high-performance 305/35 ZR22 tyres.

The German aftermarket specialist completely personalized the interior as well. The Carlsson CGL45 Mercedes GL Grand Edition comes with the highest-quality nappa leather, Alcantara, wood and stainless steel. The kit also include aluminium pedals, a signed plaque on the central console, embossed headrests featuring the Carlsson logo and illuminated door sills.
