Kicherer Supersport Black Edition
Tweaking the SLS
German high performance tuner Kicherer is the latest firm to join the soon to be crowded ring of specialists tinkering with the new SLS AMG Gullwing. Their SLS Supersport Black Edition package has just been released and features the usual fare of extra power (+50hp), revised wheels and tires (20? RS-1 alloys) and cosmetic tweaks.
Kicherer places their stamp on the original SLS’s design by adding a carbon fiber splitter under the nose, a rear carbon fiber diffuser and revised side grilles. Suspension revisions include a fully adjustable sport suspension with an adjustable leveling function.
Improving the Breed?
What’s our take on this modified SLS? We recommend you skip it altogether. If you’re after a bespoke new SLS, you can either wait for the rumored REAL Black Series from AMG or order a new standard SLS and have it delivered to AMG’s Performance Studio. AMG’s wizards will create the SLS of your dreams with no warranty issues and you’ll have the comfort of knowing that the only hands turning wrenches on your $200k SLS are those that designed and built the car.
