Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG by Senner Tuning

 The designers and technicians at tuning firm Senner Tuning have finally gotten their hands on a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG and it wasn't before long that the lightweight super sport was improved. Starting with essentials such as a remapped ECU, high performance air filter kit and stainless steel exhaust system, additional power output of 35 PS (35 bhp / 26 kW) and 40 Nm (30 lb-ft) was coaxed from the 6.2-liter V8 which normally produces 571 PS (563 bhp / 420 kW) and 650 Nm (479 lb-ft) of torque. Custom made Corniche Vegas wheels with a stainless steel outer rim are from Aerotechnik in 9x20 inch rims with 255/30R20 tires at the front and 11x20 inch rims and 285/30R20 tires at the rear. Just beyond the wheels are KW adjustable coilovers in each of the four corners. Owner Benno Senner admits that greater extremes can be taken with the SLS just like with any vehicle, but insists the SLS in its basic form is quite well balanced and any further tuning would probably do more harm than good. But if you want more, Senner can always put together an individual package as per the customers requests.
