Article by Christian Andrei, on August 27, 2010

At last, the details of the remarkable CK63 RS, which was initially seen at the Essen Motor Show, have been released by Carlsson.

Patterned after the Mercedes SL63 AMG, Carlsson modified the car's standard V8 to produce 600 hp (411 kW) and 705 Nm (520 lb-ft) of torque from the original 525hp (386 kW) and 465 lb-ft (630 Nm), respectively.

These improvements enable the CK63 RS to sprint from 0-62 mph in 4.1 seconds in contrast to the SL63 AMG's 4.5 seconds.

The maximum speed has improved as well, which now stands at 325 km/h (202 mph). Other modifications introduced to the car include an electronic lowering C-Tronic suspension, ultra-light 20-inch wheels with Dunlop SP SportMaxx rubber, and a high-performance carbon composite stopping system.

On the surface, we find a new aero kit that includes a modified bumper with matching mesh inserts for air vents and a new front spoiler and rear air diffuser which are both made out of lightweight polyurethane.

The car is finished in special titan graphite paint and matt scheme and five other external colors as option.

On the interior, the car receives a high-end treatment of leather and alcantara on the seats and door trim. The German price tag for such a highly exclusive car is 272,500 Euros or $354,400.
