The CLS 55 AMG is a treat to drive thanks to its balanced handling characteristics and excellent performance. Nevertheless, Carlsson Autotechnik GmbH from Merzig in Southwest Germany has decided to risk its own interpretation of this thoroughbred automobile, which is primarily aimed at the ambitious, discerning driver who wants more. And doing so has paid off because the Carlsson CK55 leaves no automotive wish unfulfilled.The Carlsson CK55: when the performance matches the appearance
Even at first glance, the Carlsson CK55 holds out the promise of pure luxury coupled wîth great muscle. And it lives up to expectations by combining outstanding power delivery wîth the greatest possible comfort, impressive acceleration times and extremely agile handling. The CK 55 performance kit wîth 580 bhp at 6000 rpm lends the car Carlsson-typical characteristics. The saloon car covers the standing start to 100 km/h in just 4.4 seconds wîth acceleration only being stopped by the electronic limiter at a top speed of 320 km/h. The torque produced by this power plant is a mighty 810 Nm at 2600 rpm. To put it simply: the CK 55 offers complete and unadulterated driving pleasure.An expressive appearance wîth a full sound
Less is sometimes more. On the basis of proven Carlsson styling elements, a few but effective modifications to the aerodynamics of the CK 55 are sufficient to lend the car an even more dynamic and sporting look. The Carlsson RS front-spoiler lip continues the lines of the CLS 55 AMG harmoniously and – without being blatant – attracts a host of enthusiastic glances. Thanks to a reduction in lift, the driver profits from improved handling: a major benefit wîth such a powerful car.
The Carlsson sports rear silencer wîth four tail pipes dominates the back view. Given that a correctly tuned exhaust system is essential for increased engine performance, Carlsson sports rear silencers are optimised in comparison wîth the standard version in terms of backpressure and pipe run, which results in greater torque and a higher power output. The systems are made entirely of stainless steel and distinguished by first-class workmanship, which leads to a considerably longer service life. The design of the tailpipes also has a practical benefit: they are double-walled, i.e., not only thermally insulated but also more aerodynamic, which results in less dirt sticking to them from turbulence.
Last but not least, the CK 55 impresses wîth its Carlsson-typical and sonorous sporting sound that is striking without being a distraction.Últra Light forged wheels: extremely attractive footwear for the CLS 55 AMG
All this luxury should be combined wîth elegant and technically advanced wheels. The right choice here is forged wheels from the Carlsson 'Últra Light' series. For the CK 55, Carlsson can supply them in the dimensions 8.5 x 20' (front axle wîth Dunlop SP Sport Maxx 255/30 ZR20 tyres) and 11 x 20' (rear axle wîth Dunlop SP Sport Maxx 305/25 ZR20 tyres). The elaborate forging process not only guarantees an impressive appearance but also offers genuine benefits: in comparison to cast 20' wheels, these extremely light wheels ensure better handling, improved §teering characteristics and, therefore, greater comfort.Intelligent lowering: Carlsson C-Tronic® SÚSPENSION
The new C-Tronic® SÚSPENSION supplementary control unit is used to lower the CK55 by approx. 30 mm, which results not only in a more sporting look but also less roll and, therefore, improved handling. An important component of the new C-Tronic® SÚSPENSION is its intelligent electronic system that auto¬matically adjusts the suspension travel on poor road surfaces and thus smoothes out irregularities of all kinds. It goes without saying that no safety standards are infringed in any way.Elegant ambience inside
Only those who feel comfortable in their surroundings can expect to arrive fully relaxed. For the CK55, too, Carlsson offers an exclusive range of interior appointments from which the customer can choose to suit his or her individual taste. Characteristic of all fittings are the close links between comfort, ergonomics and aesthetics. The combination of high-quality Carlsson leather and Alcantara in anthracite wîth rhombus quilting gives the CK55 an independent character. To match the upholstery, the standard trim parts are finished in black piano varnish. And, thanks to the ergonomically designed Carlsson sports §teering wheel wîth its Alcantara covering, the driver has a secure and comfortable grip on the CK 55 at all times (cool in the summer, warm in the winter).Source - Carlsson
