Tuning package includes 20-inch wheels, aerodynamic kit and 40 extra horses on the E 250 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY and 46 for the E 350 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY. For the heftier E 500, a 55 hp boost is provided by a compressor and exhaust system.
German tuner Carlsson has some ideas for the new Mercedes E-Class it would like to share with the world. You know, just a few redecorating touches here and there and maybe a little extra hot sauce for under the hood.
Carlsson will this week be showing off its tuning package for the E-Class and it all starts with a aerodynamic kit made of PUR-RIM (polyurethane), a lightweight material. The kit includes new front and rear aprons, integrated rear diffuser framing four stainless steel exhaust pipes, side rails and a spoiler at the back. Carlsson's redesign also includes vertically adjusting xenon-lights, LED daytime running lights, a stainless steel grid beneath the new radiator grill all providing a new face for the E-Class.
There's also the C-Tronic suspension system, which can lower the car up to 43 mm and continuously adjusts the tension to accommodate the road and provide the best combination of ride comfort and sportiness.
On the menu too are the new 20-inch rims in a 5-double-spoke design in matte black.
On the inside are studded aluminum pedal layers and foot rests for better floor grip. Available as an option is a gearshift knob dressed in suede-leather as well as aluminum door lock bolts. Carlsson labeled floor mats are also included.
For under the hood the docs at Carlsson are prescribing 40 extra horses on the E 250 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY and 46 for the E 350 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY. For the heftier E 500, there's the CM50K full exhaust kit which includes racing headers, high-performance catalysts and stainless steel mufflers providing a 55 hp increase in power output.
The E-Class by Carlsson will be on display at the Tuning World Bodensee in Friedrichshafen which takes place between April 30th and May 3rd.
