The owners of Mercedes Benz S Class type W/V221 are treated by Carlsson with a new tuning package.
This new package comes with plenty of aesthetic upgrades, but one of the most notable improvement Carlsson made on the S-Class is an engine tweak. This S-Class is the S600L model and Carlsoon has tuned the V2 engine from 517 HP (380 KW) to 600 HP (441 KW) and offers a 1000 nm of torque for a 0 to 100 time of 4.3 seconds and top speed of 320 km/h. These power figures allowed it a 0-62 mph time of 4.3 seconds and a mighty impressive top speed of 198 mph. If that doesn’t tickle your fancy, Carlsson is also offering an engine package for the powerful S63 AMG, taking its output from 571 ponies all the way up to 684 HP.
If we’re looking at the numbers, we can see that are staggering for a luxury car like the Mercedes S-Class, but there’s more to Carlsson’s program than just an increased engine output. There are a plenty of aesthetic improvements, which includes an aero kit that features a new front lip, a boor lid spoiler, and front and rear aprons. Carlsson also threw in new stainless steel grille inserts, four new headlights, a series of LED daytime running lights, a C-Tronic lowering kit that drops the car’s height by 30 mm, and a set of Carlsson’s own 1/10 Brilliant Edition alloy wheels measured in either 19″ or 20″.
Inside, the interior is garnished with fine leather and Carlsson logos everywhere you look, on the seats, steel pedals, door sills, the lot. This custom leather upholstery comes with the company badging embossed into the headrests with a blue illuminated signature in the door sill adding a nice touch to the whole look of the car.
Overall, in terms of aesthetical, the package won’t overwhelm you with anything outlandish. But given that the car is the flagship S600 model of Merc’s S-Class family, anything that’s over-the-top would only ruin the luxury car’s overall prestige.
