Carlsson has kitted up the new Mercedes Benz C-Class with its latest CK35 tuning package, a race-proven kit that delivers the performance to match its sporty look. The tuner has been a successful competitor in the VLN Long Distance Trophy at the Nürburgring for many years and has consistently used its own commercial range of parts and accessories in the competition.

The Carlsson unit produces 295bhp (217kW) and presses maximum torque of 385Nm onto the crankshaft. The increased output comes from a stainless-steel sports rear silencer with four oval tailpipes as well as a modified engine management system. The top speed of the CK35 is 270km/h, while the sprint from 0-100 km/h takes just six seconds, four tenths faster than the standard car.

To match its performance, Carlsson fits an aerodynamic kit that includes a front apron, a diffuser-look apron at the rear, side moldings and rear spoiler. All parts are made of high-grade PUR and, while the front-end grille gets an electro-polished grille insert and double-headlight units with fog and driving lights. These parts are also available separately for fitment in combination with the standard bumper. Handling is enhanced with lowered sport springs and 19in lightweight alloys.
