In some way Carlsson's latest introduction seems well-known!
And indeed, it is! Obviously the only newness is that the company
has extended the rocker panels of their body kit for the S-class to
the length needed to fit the Long Wheel Base model. The package is
called the 'RS-Design' - what sounds pretty racing-related to us.
By looks it definitely is. However, considering Mercedes' stretched
flagship's length and weight, it does not appear to be the perfect
choice for the circuit. Objectively the RS Design looks good, but it
doesn't go with the approach of the thing. Their competitors of Lorinser
have recently shown an E-class with sporting exterior trim which was
stretched by more than 1 meter.
In the feature on it we said: 'It's like joining a rowing regatta
with a 300-feet yacht'. As the Long Wheel Base S-class isn't as long
as that, it's just like 'taking part in the Touring Car Masters with a
state coach'. Brabus and Lorinser have got stretched side sills for the
LWB S-class too. However, the entire packages aren't quite as racy as
Are a Long Wheel Base luxury salon and sporting exterior modifications
a bad match!? Or does it work!? How do you think about it? Here below
we provide links to our features on the cars mentioned in this article.
Take a look at them by yourself to form an opinion whether that goes
well together or not. And if you would like to, let us know by email
