Breathtaking increase in output to 480 bhp
Thanks to the Carlsson supercharger, the engine output of the base SLK 55 is boosted to a breathtaking 480 bhp / 353 kW and a maxim torque of 650 Nm at 2800 rpm. Top speed climbs to 315 km/h while acceleration from a standing start to 100 km/h takes but 4.1 seconds. Appropriate deceleration is ensured by a high-performance braking system with 6-piston light-alloy callipers and internally ventilated, composite discs measuring 380x32 mm at the front and 4-piston light-alloy callipers and internally ventilated discs measuring 340x22 mm at the back.

Lowering via a RS suspension system
A RS suspension system consisting of 4 sports shock absorbers and 4 Carlson sports springs lowers the car's centre of gravity and gives it an even more sporting look. The suspension system has an infinitely variable height adjustment and adjustable damping characteristics with nine settings.

High-grade aerodynamics set
The high-grade aerodynamics set for the CM55 K based on the SLK 55 consists of a front spoiler with supplementary xenon fog lamps and large brake-ventilation ducts plus aerodynamically optimised side mouldings with ventilation ducts for the rear brakes and a rear-wheel cover to reduce air resistance. The set also includes a rear apron with bottom wings, under-body panels and a rear spoiler to reduce lift. A sporting sound is guaranteed by the rear Carlsson sports silencer, which is made of stainless steel and boasts four oval tailpipes.

Luxurious leather interior
Thanks to the exclusive leather interior appointments from Carlsson, the passenger compartment exudes a luxurious atmosphere. Individual and ergonomically designed seats finished in the finest leather ensure perfect lateral support. The side panels, the shift grip and the ergonomic sports steering wheel are also covered with top-quality leather.

1/16 Ultra Light forged wheels
For the wheels, Carlsson has chosen 1/16 UL ultra-light forged wheels measuring 8.5 x 19" with 235/35 ZR 19 tyres for the front and 10 x 19" with Dunlop 265/30 ZR 19 tyres for the back.
