Kicherer Impact based on the 2012 Mercedes-Benz M-Class

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.

2011 Mercedes-Benz ML 63 AMG Carbon by Kicherer

Kicherer has released a modification package for the outgoing Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG. The German aftermarket developer used the Carbon Series designation. The car is covered in carbon fiber foil and has been given smoked taillights and dark tinted windows. The unit features 23-inch alloy rims, which have a five-spoke design.

They are given a black finish to emphasize the aggressive image of the SUV. Kicherer also gave this vehicle a 6.2-liter V8 engine with an ECU remap as well as a stainless steel sport exhaust system.

This enables the naturally aspirated powerplant to raise the output by 30 hp and 10 Nm (7 lb-ft). As a result, the vehicle takes advantage of its 540 hp and 40 Nm (472 lb-ft) of torque. Kicherer didn’t provide the performance figures yet though.

Preview: Kicherer SLS Roadster Supersport GT/R

A few pictures have been released of Kicherer’s kit for the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster. This package is dubbed the SLS Roadster Supersport GT/R, which means that it has GT lines and is very low off the ground. One of the most notable aftermarket modifications made to the SLS Roadster is the hand-made grille. The big Mercedes star has been replaced with huge garish fins.

The vehicle has been given a set of 20-inch wheels that have five black double spokes and a polished lip. The SLS is lowered with the use of coilover suspension featuring a 'Front Up' system that raises the car’s front by the pressing of a button.

Kicherer boosted the power of this car. Its V8 engine could now deliver 630hp instead of 571, due partly to a new stainless steel exhaust system and a sports air filter. Kicherer could boost the output to 650hp, enabling the vehicle to accelerate from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in only 3.5 seconds.

KICHERER’s tuning experts have created a package for the new Mercedes CLS 500 Coupé, which by itself is already an impressive vehicle with superior power with 408 Ps and 600 Nm torque. What the engineers, designers and technicians did at KICHERER was to emphasize the model’s sportiness, both visually and in terms of performance.

A boost was given to the V8 biturbo engine by around 62 Ps and 90 Newton metres by using a software update and by installing a sports exhaust system.

To achieve 470hp, an original KICHERER PowerConverter (with an E certificate of conformity) was fitted in. As a result, its accelerator pedal becomes very responsive to the driver's commands. It features ex-works end pipes and a modern, nearly rectangular design.

Kicherer achieved this by using an ECU remap and stainless steel for its final pipe covers (four pipes).

The vehicle has also been given a set of RS-1 multi-part forged rims. With regards to the suspension, this vehicle got a lift kit from KW that can lift the vehicle by 30 mm (1.18 inch) at the touch of a button.

Did you ever stop to wonder why the Mercedes-Benz 300 SL has a grid in front of the windscreen or what the "CP" on the vehicle actually means? To explain it, a trip down history lane has to be taken.

The Carrera (race) was held all through Mexico along the famous Panamerican Highway and it had the support of the Mexican government. In 1952, a highly interesting race took place.

The Mercedes 300-Benz SL won that year but a low-flying vulture had flown right smack to the windscreen. The co-driver was hit and injured and as a result, the Mercedes-Benz mechanics built a grid in front of the windscreen to prevent such a thing happening again. The Kicherer engineers then decided to name the vehicle as the new Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG.

Since the suspension has also been modified, it gives this SUV a sportier appearance. Even the accelerator pedal has been modified resulting in an optimized response and a more spontaneous engine operation.
