The Mercedes-Benz SLR has received a complete foil wrap from CUT48 and a power boost from Edo Competition.

Specialized in providing foil wraps, CUT48 says this blue and black gloss wrapping for the SLR is available for a steep 4,350 EUR (approximately 5,800 USD), but for a person who owns such a car money is no object.

Aside from the new look, the hand-built AMG V8 engine has received a power increase from the standard 626 HP (460 kW) to 722 HP (531 kW) courtesy of Edo Competition. The torque figure has also jumped from 580 lb-ft (780 Nm) to 656 lb-ft (890 Nm). This was possible by remapping the ECU, compressor tweaks, installing a new exhaust manifold and customizing the intake system.

As a result, the supercar is able to hit 200 km/h (124 mph) in less than 10 seconds and it will keep on going until it reaches an electronically limited top speed of 345 km/h (214 mph).
