Article by Anita Panait, on April 29, 2012

Sportservice Lorinser is in the process of tuning a Mercedes-Benz ML in preparation for the modified car’s scheduled unveiling at the Tuning World Bodensee 2012. Sportservice Lorinser is expected to use the finest materials to modify specs of the wide-bodied Mercedes-Benz ML, guided by great craftsmanship and the highest technical level of manufacturing.

Lorinser is employing specially designed aerodynamic parts for the ML, coupled with shimmering light-alloy wheels, first class accessories and impressive interior fittings. Lorinser employed lightweight construction for the bodywork and all the components of the modified ML, including front and rear bumpers, widening mudguards and side-skirts.

While improving aerodynamics, Lorinser also made sure that it would impress a dynamic look upon the vehicle by installing large air inlets on the Mercedes-Benz ML, which ensures optimum airflow into the drive unit. Lorinser also fitted 10x22 inch RS9 light-alloy wheels and 295/30/22 size Yokohama tyres into the Mercedes-Benz ML, complemented by a wider mudguard and progressively wound suspension springs. 

The springs lowered the vehicle’s centre of gravity on the front and rear axles by up to 40 mm.  Lorinser also built a set for manual lowering for models equipped with Airmatic as standard. Lorinser also offers to personalize the vehicle’s interior fitting, according to the customer’s taste and preferences. Lorinser’s modified Mercedes-Benz ML will be displayed at booth 200, hall B, Yokohama at the Tuning World Bodensee 2012.

Simply the epitome of German engineering at its finest, the Mercedez-Benz M-Class establishes new benchmarks in the SUV world with its cutting-edge automotive technology; boasting an impressive 25 percent decrease in emission versus its predecessor.

This environmentally-friendly luxury SUV has a class-beating Cd value of 0.32, extensive BlueEFFICIENCY measures, and new development tools such as the “energy-transparent vehicle”. Moreover, the innovative ML 250 BlueTEC 4MATIC technology earned the respect of critics with it being 28 percent more economical than previous models, consuming just 6.01 per 100 kilometer on the NEDC driving cycle (158 grams of carbon dioxide per kilometer) and covering as far as 1,500 kilometers of road on a single tank of fuel.

In line with the Mercedes-Benz brand philosophy, the new Mercedes-Benz M-Class represents the embodiment of the Mercedes-Benz holistic safety concept of Real Life Safety, data of which were derived from real-life accidents. In combination with the front and rear deformation zones, the high-strength passenger cell of the M-Class provides a highly effective foundation that ensures maximum passenger safety. Both active safety and driver-fitness safety in the new M-Class are further improved by the assistance systems that will already be familiar, primarily from the S-Class and E-Class.

The new M-Class boasts optimum energy efficiency, leading standards of passive safety, outstanding ride comfort combined with superb driving dynamics, as well as a completely revamped interior design offering excellent ergonomics among its key strengths.
