Fostla SL55 AMG Goes for the Gold

Prior Design

Mercedes roadster scores some extra style points thanks to Fostla.

Hanover-based aftermarket firm Fostla has created a new tuning program for the Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMG that combines performance with extravagant style for one outlandish-looking hard-top roadster. Fostla fitted Prior Design's widebody kit, making the roadster 4 inches wider with flared fenders front and rear. The Prior kit also includes a new hood, front and rear bumpers, side skirts, rear diffuser and trunk spoiler. Fostla then tinted the headlights by five percent, wrapped the body in metallic yellow foil and shoed it with 20" wheels on a lowered suspension.

To give the German roadster the go to back up the show, Fostla also remapped the ECU to boost output from 500 horsepower to 548. The total conversion is estimated to have cost around €30,000.
