Mercedes-Benz SL 500 (R231) by Wheelsandmore


The luxury tuner wraps the fresh new silhouette completely in an aluminum-silver-gray high-tech film which provides more optical exclusivity to the new SL roadster.

In their specialty, the production of tailor-made, multi-part forged rims, the fine tuner installed the maximum possible wheel sizes of the type 6Sporz ² in the dimensions 9,5 x20″ with 245/30/20 at the front and at the rear 11,0 x20“ with 295/25 Continental Sport Contact 5P tires. Although the wheels could be configured in nearly unlimited color and surface finish combinations, Wheelsandmore adapted them to the overall picture, with matt black wheel center, combined with robust and easy-care stainless steel outer rims.

The suspension lowering is provided by the fully adjustable suspension module called LowMaXX, which shuts down to at a speed of 70 km/h to preserve the comfort and safety again. As the module is offered with a plug-and-play adapter solution, the installation is easily done within a few minutes.

With the new M278 engine and 435 hp standard performance, Mercedes-Benz delivers the best arguments for already interested inclined to purchase. Wheelsandmore wouldn’t be a tuner if that performance couldn’t be increased even further. Optimizing the characteristics of the electronic control unit improves the performance of the R231 for additional 70 hp and 100 Nm of torque up to 505 hp and 800 Nm of torque in total.

As appropriate exhaustsystems and air filter components are currently under developement, there certainly will be higher upgrades to expect.
