Mercedes CLS 2012 Edition Black by Kicherer

This is the car for those who can’t afford a CLS 63 AMG!

In fact it’s better than that. Sure the matte black paint and black wheels are a bit too much, but it’s more discrete than the AMG version. And yes, it’s based on the CLS500, but don’t think it’s a wuss because Kicherer has tuned the engine up to 470 hp. So it’s very nearly just as powerful.

The aggressive styling is complemented by interior elements and door sills in piano lacquer.

By means of a software update and a sports exhaust system the performance of the V8 biturbo engine was increased by around 62 Ps and 90 Newton metres. To help the 470 horsepower get straight to work an original KICHERER PowerConverter (with an E certificate of conformity) was mounted in the vehicle. The accelerator pedal thus reacts almost immediately to the driver’s commands. Both ear and eye can delight in many ways in a beautiful exhaust system at the rear of the vehicle.

On the one hand even the ex-works end pipes are convincing with a modern, almost rectangular design and on the other hand the KICHERER sports exhaust system behind it produces a sportily exciting but still discrete V8 sound.

The choice of wheels for this car is the hand-made KICHERER RS-1 20 inch forged wheels – behind which one can easily imagine the power of the 6 and 4 piston high performance braking system.
