Mercedes SLS 63 Supersport GT by Kicherer


German tuner, Kicherer, loves tuning Mercedes vehicles and apparently, they love sticking hot models on their projects for a photo shoot too.

Fresh off their take on another SLS AMG Supersport a few months ago, Kicherer ? and their hot models ? is proud to introduce their new crowning glory, the SLS 63 Supersport GT.

Decked in that unmistakable matte black foliation finish, the SLS 63 Supersport GT also comes with a rather curious shark-mouth, hand-made grille. We say curious because, well, we don?t like it, although Kicherer seemed to think that it added a sharper bite to the car?s looks so they decided to go with it. In any case, the modified SLS AMG was also given a new carbon front spoiler lip with a carbon fin set to go along with a set of the tuning company?s own three-piece RS-1 rims: 10J x 20? at the front and 11.5Jx21?. Save for the grille, the aerodynamic kit looks mighty impressive and it?s made even better by the fact that Kicherer also gave the car a performance upgrade, bumping up the car?s output to 621 horsepower and 516 lb/ft of torque. This allows the Mercedes to clock a 0-62 mph time of just 3.5 seconds with an electronically limited top speed of 199 mph.

Can’t say that we don’t find the SLS 63 Supersport GT beautiful with the exception of that shark grille. But hey, if the car comes with those knockout vixens, then we’re going to let that grille pass.
