In the premium segment, the S-Class has been setting the standard for generations. The automobile manufacturer Carlsson offers with its Carlsson S-Class (type W/V 221) additional sportiness, individuality, and luxury.
In order to enhance the power output of the Mercedes flagship Carlsson offers performance kits for diesel and gasoline engines. The Carlsson C-Tronic makes use of the engine’s reserves and, thanks to the connection to the vehicle’s electronic system, guarantees that safety limits are always adhered to. Performance kits for gasoline engines are available in various stages, the most powerful version for the S65 AMG providing up to 685 hp (504 kW) and a maximum torque of 1100 Nm.
The supportive measures for the engine’s performance is accompanied by the aerodynamic package RS consisting of components, which fulfil the highest standards. The front apron and the front spoiler lip not only offer a sporty appearance but also generate additional downforce, which results in an increased tread pressure and therefore more road adhesion. The side of the Mercedes appears more dynamic and powerful thanks to the new set of side skirts for the model with long wheelbase. A new designed apron, crowned with a sporty spoiler decorates the rear.
The visual promise of the new aerodynamic package is kept by the intelligent lowering kit, Carlsson C-Tronic SUSPENSION for vehicles with AIRMATIC or ABC suspension system. Thanks to its data link the system communicates with the on-board electronics and detects within milliseconds the road condition and the driver's personal handling of the vehicle. The system lowers the car by up to 30 millimetres and adjusts the suspension according to the detected parameters in order to maintain an optimum cornering performance, while at the same time providing the highest degree of comfort.
