Carlsson SLK 340 race car debuts in Geneva

by SpeedLux

Carlsson has released the initial details about their SLK 340, prior to its debut at the Geneva Motor Show.

Created for the Meisel Motorsport team, the SLK 340 is a tailored race car which was specifically designed to compete in international mountain race events. It has an aggressive carbon fiber body with front splitter, a rear wing and a massive diffuser. There’s also an adjustable KW competition suspension, high-performance brakes and 18-inch BBS racing wheels with AVON tires.

Interior pictures are yet to be released, but Carlsson says the cabin has Fibreworks racing seats and a roll cage that meets all relevant international requirements.

Power comes from a 3.4-liter V8 engine that develops 610 HP (449 kW) and 430 Nm (317 lb-ft) of torque. It is connected to a Hewland transmission which will likely enable the 780 kg (1,719 lbs) racer to be an absolute rocket.

Carlsson believes its race car would be second to none not only in the racing circuit but in all the categories a racing car possesses.
The show begins in few months time and more information is likely to be revealed then and there itself.

Till then stay tuned and have a peek at the picture gallery.
