Before the Mercedes-AMG GT came to life, there was the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG. But production for the latter only lasted for four years, and now, it is gone for good. There are some people who get attached to their cars, not wanting to sell them because owners consider them valuable, and this might be the case for Inden Design. The German tuner recently came out with a kit that will keep the SLS AMG fresh and running for several more years.
Inden Design says that the result after installing the kit will be the “world’s most advanced SLS AMG”. The SLS AMG gets a whole body makeover, and I mean all original Black Series parts will be dismantled as it goes through the process of upgrading. Everything from the apron to the hood, and even the side sills will be changed.
But the upgrades are not just about how it looks on the outside. The SLS AMG will be getting an upgraded interior and engine as well. The cabin originally comes with a factory carbon package. Underneath will be a new ice-blast treatment, combined with some original durable plastic laminated parts. Having said that, all the upgrades are not just for show, but have their functions too.
Under the hood of the SLS AMG is a 6.2 liter V8 that has been enhanced so it could push its output to 635 horsepower (467 kilowatts), that is equivalent to a 64 horsepower (47 kW) increase from the original model - thanks to an MKB tune. Other than that, a set of KW suspension was paired with a stainless steel exhaust system. To finish off the look, the SLS AMG has been given a set of BBS-F1 rims finished in gloss black to complement the rest of the body.
After the customization done by Inden Design, the SLS AMG appeared more aggressive than ever. We are guessing that the package would make a hole in your wallet with all the changes that will be made. Inden didn’t divulge how much this package costs but it likely won’t be an issue with its customers who could easily afford a new SLS AMG, which starts at $200,000.
For some back story, the Mercedes SLS AMG was first unveiled during the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show, which was then followed by an official release sometime in 2010 (in Europe), and 2011 in the United States. After that, the company developed an electric variant of the model in 2012 - the SLS AMG Electric Drive, which was revealed at the Paris Motor Show. The electric variant did not make it to the production line, while the production of the Final Edition SLS AMG ended in early 2014. Since then, it had been replaced by the more modern AMG GT.
