The tuning specialists at Kicherer have unveiled a vehicle based on the new 2012 Mercedes-Benz ML series – dubbed the Kicherer "IMPACT". This real high-performance luxury SUV has a stunning wide body design with the most meticulous attention given to a smooth and harmonious alignment.

What the technicians and designers of Kicherer Fahrzeugtechnik from Stockach made sure of was to eliminate unnecessary edges and air boxes. But then the distinctive features of the ML remained.

As a result, we have an outstanding Concept Car designed by Kicherer Fahrzeugtechnik, which is famous for its refinement packages for Mercedes Benz models. With this set of features, the vehicle turns into a powerful and elegant Sports SUV. Kicherer created a complicated assembly set of the bodywork that was placed over the ML’s design like second skin.

Kicherer is known for its top Germany quality and accuracy. The IMPACT has an aerodynamic assembly set that includes LED daytime running lights, wheel arch enlargements for the front and rear axles, side skirts, attachments to the doors and trunk lids, rear fender skirt with integrated rear diffuser and trapezoidal pipe-end covers in with sporty four-pipe appearance. It also gets a complete front fender skirt.

To complement this assembly set, the tuners added multiple perfectly positioned applications built from visible carbon fiber.

Huge 22-inch Kicherer RS2 Aluminum wheels are covered in an obviously bigger wheel arch. They use an electronic chassis adjustment system with a range of about 25 millimeters.

The Kicherer ML "IMPACT" is luxurious and the focus on details is emphasized through its choice Nappa leather, Alcantara and Carbon in the interior for an exclusive interior experience.

Kicherer ML "IMPACT" aerodynamic kit will be offered for all ML types 166 of the youngest generation. It’s expected to appear in the market during the summer of 2012.
