German chip tuner mcchip-dkr is offering an engine upgrade for the new Mercedes-Benz SLS 6.3 AMG Black Series, which recently came from production. The SLS 6.3 AMG Black Series is already an elegant monster of its own merit as it is powered by a 6.3-liter V-8 that provides 622 hp and 468 pound-feet of torque.
But this amount of dynamism may not be enough for some customers. It is a good thing that mcchip-dkr is offering an engine map optimization motor tuning for the Black Series dubbed as the Stage 1 kit. Once the tuning is completed, the SLS AMG Black Series’ power is hiked to 654hp of output and 479 pounds-feet of torque.
This surge in engine power and the addition of aero modifications has enabled the SLS AMG Black Series to accelerate from zero to 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds and reach a top speed is 196 mph. The tuning did not only result to higher engine power, but also improve fuel consumption.
To avail of the Stage 1 kit, interested clients can come and visit one of the chip tuners garage networks in Germany -- Bischofswerda, Berlin, Dueren, Hamburg, Heidelberg, Munich, Overath, Passau, Penzberg, Salzgitter, Schmelz or Tauberbischofsheim.
Likewise, a client does not have to wait a long time to have modifications completed, since the installation can be finished within one working day only for EUR3,199.
Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Coupé Black Series design creates a particular captivation from its likeness to the SLS AMG GT3 consumer sports car. The gull-wing race car was created according to FIA GT3 rules and has quickly established itself as a serious player among the elite super sports car. In the 2012 season, the SLS AMG GT3 raced in over 15 series on four continents.
The trio of victories in the 24-hour Dubai race in January 2012, three titles for driver and team in the FIA GT3 European Championship, the ADAC GT Masters, and the FIA GT3 World Championship along with many podium spots at a variety of short-distance, 4- and 6‑hour races illustrate the SLS AMG GT3's sports ability impressively. Currently, as of 28 October 2012, the car has 37 2012 season victories.
Wide flaring wings with an additional 13 mm (front) and 26 mm (rear) width on either side make the needed room for the 275 mm and 325 mm sports tires. Shadowed headlights and black rear light surrounds give the SLS AMG Black Series a muscular, forceful appearance. The automobile's streamlined balance is maximised by the front and rear aprons with diffusor as well as side sill panels in Black Series-specific design comprised of carbon fibre-reinforced plastic front splitters, carbon inserts in the side sills, and carbon fibre rear apron. The bigger air intakes with carbon-fibre flics also make sure for optimised air flowing into the front cooling modules.
As with the SLS AMG GT3, the carbon-fibre hood has a centre air outlet. Along with efficiently dispelling the engine’s heat, this outlet also maximised the front axle’s downforce and enhances the Cd value. The wing-like cross-fin and the star niche in the radiator’s grille have a high-glossed black finish to match the mirrors on the exterior and the bonnet’s fins. The side carbon-fibre insert with air outlet and black fin is also resonant of the GT3. This also assists in reducing the temperature in the engine area. The benefit is maximised stability, even in tough conditions on the race track.
