Carlsson has a red-white dream, and there is nothing to be ashamed about.
Carlsson has just released the first pictures of their aftermarket program for the Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG. They call it the "red and white dream," and after taking a look at the pictures, you can tell that description is absolutely accurate. The Mercedes sedan didn't necessarily need the tuning firm's help, as the stock CLS 63 AMG runs on a powerful twin-turbo V8 with an output of 557hp.
After Carlsson added their shot-peened exhaust system with metal catalysts (and we are sure more tweaks that they haven't told us about yet), the sedan cranks out a serious 652hp. Torque has been ratcheted up from 590 lb-ft to an impressive 737 lb-ft. As far as performance goes, the sedan hits 60mph from rest in 4.1 seconds, down from the stock's 4.3 seconds. Carlsson's body kit for the Merc is almost as impressive. It features plenty of aerodynamic pieces, such as carbon fiber front and rear spoilers, integrated rear diffuser and lip spoilers.
It is finished in "Diamond White Metallic" paint and sits on a set of classy 20-inch Carlsson lightweight wheels. The front-end is lowered by 30mm for an even more aggressive look. Red might not be your thing, but the interior looks terrific color aside. The "Santa Red" Nappa Exclusive leather is fitted everywhere, from the seats to the trunk to the dash and steering wheel. It has solid contrasting "white ornamental seams." No pricing information has been released as of yet for the Carlsson CK63 RS edition sedan.
