Kicherer may not be as well known as its rival German tuners such as Brabus and MTM, but the company has a penchant for building some of the most stylish and aggressive kits in the business - especially when it comes to modifying cars from Mercedes Benz. Some recent highlights include the SL63 Evo Edition and CLK63 Black Edition, and now the tuner has released a package for the luxurious CL65 AMG.

Aptly named the CL65 Coupe, the new package adds several subtle styling mods, both inside and out, as well as a range of engine and wheel and tire upgrades. Some of the pieces include a carbon-fiber front grill, mirror shells, a rear diffuser and a front apron with a deflector made of stainless steel.

Under the bonnet sits a 650hp (484kW) and 885lb-ft (1,200Nm) version of the twin-turbo AMG V12. This is enough to push the big coupe to100km/h from rest in just 4.2 seconds and on to a top speed of 320km/h. Furthermore, the vehicle has been provided with a high-performance rear axle equipped with a differential lock and a modified transmission control module to handle the boosted power levels.

The power is put to the ground via a set of handcrafted 20in Kicherer RS-X wheels, wrapped with 285mm rubber. The car’s suspension has also been lowered by 25mm and has been beefed up with stiffer springs and dampers.

To match the performance mods, Kicherer adds several exterior pieces such as the new side skirts, revised bumpers, a modified grille and an integrated rear diffuser. Inside, the CL is fitted with option Alcantara and carbon-fiber trim.
