Gullwing Enhanced: Hamann Creates Looks Package for Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG

image-33927795

With its signature gullwing doors, the 2010 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG is certainly eye-catching wherever it goes. But in order to elevate the SLS AMG's exclusivity by one rung, German tuner Hamann has developed unique appearance and suspension packages for the SLS.

The first thing you notice about Hamann's SLS AMG is its set of 21-inch wheels. Dubbed Design Edition Race Anodized, the two-piece wheels are forged from a lightweight aluminum alloy, and the wheel centers are painted matte black. To contrast the dark center of the wheel, the connecting bolts are made from titanium, and the forged aluminum wheel lip is left unpainted.

In addition to adding new wheels to the SLS, Hamann lowers the car by just over an inch. Incredibly, this gives the car an even meaner stance and ensures that the wheels fill out the entirety of the wheel wells. The lowered suspension was also designed to provide the car with better grip and a more progressive suspension feel. And although Hamann remains mum on engine output increases, a new exhaust and new 3.5-inch quad-tailpipes that replace the stock exhaust's oval units create a more menacing sound.

Hamann's exhaust, suspension, and appearance packages are all available to order now. The only pricing information available online lists the wheels at €10,500 ($13,500), so you'll have to contact Hamann for the rest of the accessories' prices.
