2010 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG by Hamann

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 26, 2010

The tuning specialists at Hamann have created a package that makes the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG even more awesome that it already is. The SLS is a very appealing contemporary supercar that offers a standout performance but to make it even more special, Hamann made some revisions here and there.

First, the vehicle now has a new set of forged alloy rims. The wheels, dubbed Design Edition Race "Anodized", use a cross-spokes design and feature a black matte finish. The rims also have titanium bolts that may be ultra-light but are very stable and corrosion resistant.

The Hamann Design Edition Race "Anodized" is available in the following sizes: 9x21 inch for the front axle and 11x21 inch for the rear one. They are also wrapped in 245/30 (front) and 295/25 (rear) tires. These special wheels are priced at EUR10,500.

According to Hamann's press release, these wheels were made using the most modern manufacturing processes. The wheels emphasize the sporty design of the Coupe and guarantee the highest load bearing capacity with low weight owing to special aluminum alloys.

Hamann's SLS is also equipped with a suspension that lowers the supercar by 30 mm, enhancing both the handling and the appearance.

Hamann Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG

Hamann-Motorsport is one of the leading names when it comes to exclusive refining of super sports cars. The company from Laupheim in southern Germany demonstrates this once again with the new Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG. Hamann presents premier tuning components for the Gullwing which enhances its sporty look and gives it that personal touch.

For the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, Hamann offers forged alloy wheels named DESIGN EDITION RACE "ANODIZED". These wheels, which are produced using the most modern manufacturing processes, bring out the sporty design of the Coupé and ensure the highest load bearing capacity with low weight owing to special aluminium alloys.

The look of the DESIGN EDITION RACE "ANODIZED" with its black matt anodized finish and the sophisticated cross-spokes fully meet the sporty expectations that customers have from the SLS AMG. The titanium wheel bolts seem to come directly from the racetrack. These are not only ultra light but are also very stable and corrosion resistant.

The Hamann-wheel assembly DESIGN EDITION RACE "ANODIZED" are available in the dimensions of 9.0Jx21 (front) and 11.0Jx21 (rear) and are delivered with tyres sizes 245/30 ZR 21 (front axle) and 295/25 ZR21 (rear axle) at a price of 10,500 Euro.

Other sporty highlights are the progressively wound suspensions which lower the centre of gravity of the SLS at the front and rear axle by 30mm, thus improving the handling while going around curves at high speeds.

In addition, Hamann offers a stainless steel exhaust system with a very sporty sound for the SLS. Two 90mm exhaust pipes on each side exude an impressive rumble from the V-8 engine.
