Carlsson the great Mercedes-Benz tuner, announced today the debut of the Aigner CK65 RS "Eau Rouge" Dark Edition at the Zurich Auto Show. The new vehicle based on the Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG will be produced in small series, and will be available in tow levels of performance, developing 705 hp and 756 hp (and 1,150 Nm).
The sport exhaust system by Carlsson generates more output and a truly powerful roar. Dominating the rear of the Carlsson Aigner CK65 are four Carlsson designed end pipes which electrify through their raw sound. Compared to the serial exhaust system, the exhaust back pressure and pipe guide are maximized for efficiency.
With that, Carlsson attains a high improvement in torque and performance. The latest Carlsson aerodynamic accessories and components emphasize the stylish profile of the model. However, the Carlsson Aigner CK65 "Eau Rouge" Dark Edition has its own distinctiveness and profile in both the inside and outside. The front spoilers and rear skirt lip are deliberately made in the characteristic Carlsson Diffuser Look and the arresting rear spoiler also provide effortless handling of the extravagant coupe at high speeds. The limited Carlsson aerodynamics components are made of high-quality and ultra-light solid carbon, a material which is chiefly utilized in F1 models.
For the Carlsson Aigner CK65, Carlsson offers a limited electronic lowering kit C-Tronic SUSPENSION which decreases the car's riding height by an estimated 30 mm. Furthermore, not only does it lower the center of gravity of the car, but the Carlsson C-Tronic SUSPENSION also permits an intelligent interface with the conditions on the streets.
When road conditions are far from ideal and deflections continuously occur, the height of the car is automatically adapted and the required remaining spring deflection is sustained. The driver can tangibly experience the effects of the C-Tronic reduction of height by a lowered curl and drastically more nimble driving characteristics. Therefore, the C-Tronic SUSPENSION also stands for extra driving enjoyment Furthermore, the C-Tronic SUSPENSION assures that even when driving in excess of 120 km/h, the successively feasible maximum lowering, and therefore the minimum vehicle level, is not weakened.
This enduringly ensures adequate deflections. In addition, the air resistance and the lifting forces are decreased, as a smaller amounts of air is flowing beneath the car. The Carlsson motor modification consists of especially adapted motor electronics with exceptional ignition maps for fuel injection and ignition. At the intake part, special sport air filters cause the most favorable ventilation.
A sport exhaust system made of stainless steel maximizes the exhaust back pressure. Therefore, the V12 is powerfully omnipresent and the driver can calmly draw on overflowing resources. Well-designed and matchless in its finish, the Carlsson Aigner CK65 is most likely the most exciting way of travelling at the present time. The Carlsson Aigner CK65 "Eau Rouge" Dark Edition with 756 hp offers a top speed of 335 km/h which is electronically regulated due to safety motivations and do extremely well with an acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.8 seconds.
With such results, the Carlsson Aigner CK65 outruns nearly all other sports car. The limited small series Carlsson Aigner CK65 "Eau Rouge" Dark Edition exhibits the many occasions Carlsson offers for making individual buyer's dreams become a reality. Customized modifications such as Carlsson sport running gears, Carlsson motors, Carlsson top break systems, Carlsson wheel-tire blends, restricted slip differentials or also individual Carlsson Aigner interior designs and unique car accessories are made alive with the support of the Carlsson engineers and qualified experts.
From concept to actualization, clearly and uniquely exhibit the performance efficiency of the Automobile Manufactory Carlsson. The Carlsson Aigner CK65 "Eau Rouge" Dark Edition certainly is the most striking evidence for the thriving synergy of two brands into a technically and creatively challenging automobile.
