ASMA Design has announced details of its Perfectus SLR. The car pushes out 515kW (700hp) and 885Nm of torque from a 5.4-litre V8 engine.

ASMA Design reckons they have perfected the art of tuning, a Mercedes-Benz SLR 722. ASMA calls this black supercar the Perfectus SLR. Using carbon fiber material for the body and a 5.4-litre V8, ASMA has been able to draw out a maximum power output number of 515kW (700hp) out of the SLR. Torque is 885Nm made at 3,300rpm. McLaren Mercedes themselves could only manage 478kW (650hp) from the same powerplant out of the SLR 722 Edition.

Putting all that grunt on the tar are thick black wheels measuring 325/25-20 at the back and 255/30-20 up front. The standard 5-speed automatic gearbox is mated to the Perfectus with performance figures stated as 3.5 seconds for the 0 - 100km/h sprint and 348km/h for the top speed. ASMA says the car will return an average fuel consumption of 19.8 litres per 100km.

The custom carbon fiber bodywork has been used to the effect of not only keeping weight down but also showing how the material can be sculpted with sharp lines and slits particularly at the front. These were apparently F1-inspired?
