Straight out of the box the Mercedes Benz SL is already one of the most stylish and sporty models in the luxury carmaker’s lineup, but it was never going to satisfy the guys at German tuner Kicherer. Applying lessons learned from its previous K60 Evo, the tuner has developed a new aerodynamic package for the entire SL range that includes an extendable rear wing, a carbon-fiber front apron and handmade forged wheels.

The front apron of the new kit - simply called the Evo II - has a particularly eye-catching design and prevents excessive lift forces. Further lateral air intakes have been added to provide the engine with sufficient quantities of fresh air while the rear diffuser helps reduce any turbulent forces and adds a final touch to the car’s exterior.

The highlight of the package is the car’s trunk lid, which is now a fully carbon-fiber unit complete with an integrated electronically extendable rear wing. The wheels seen here are Kicherer’s own three-piece RS-1 forged wheels.

Inside, Kicherer has added an F1-style steering wheel with carbon gearshift paddles, additional instruments and extra carbon trim.
