Carlsson has released the first details about their SLK 340, ahead of its debut at the Geneva Motor Show.
Created for the Meisel Motorsport team, the SLK 340 is a bespoke race car which was specifically designed to compete in international hill climb events. It has an aggressive carbon fiber body with front splitter, a rear wing and a massive diffuser. There's also an adjustable KW competition suspension, high-performance brakes and 18-inch BBS racing wheels with AVON tires.
Interior pictures were not released, but Carlsson says the cabin has Fibreworks racing seats and a roll cage that meets "all relevant international requirements."
Power is provided by a 3.4-liter V8 engine that develops 610 HP (449 kW) and 430 Nm (317 lb-ft) of torque. It is connected to a Hewland transmission which will likely enable the 780 kg (1,719 lbs) racer to be an absolute rocket.
