Kicherer boost performance on the standard SL 63 AMG with 35 more horsepower and a supple aerodynamic kit. The SL 63 RS also features LED daytime running lights and 20-inch light-metal wheels.

Here's some more on the Kicherer SL 63 RS and, well, we always like to hear from the likes of German tuners who feel Mercedes AMG models still need some improvement, don't we?

Kicherer takes the standard SL 63 AMG's naturally aspirated 6.3 liter (6208cc) V8 with 525 hp and 630 Nm of torque and boosts those figures to 560 hp and 670 Nm of Nordic strongman-like cranking power. Sounds not too excessive, a solid display of tuning propriety.

An aerodynamic kit helps improve air flow above and beneath the car while being made up of lightweight laminated carbon fiber parts to keep this SL 63 on a high-carb/low fat diet. The kit includes a new front grill and spoiler, rear spoiler for better downforce and a rear skirt with a newly-shaped integrated diffuser that assiduously ushers air flow beneath the car while framing a quad-piped sport exhaust system.

On the menu too are an improved ABC suspension and tougher brakes to handle the extra performance. The SL 63 is also touched up with the use of LED daylight driving lights and 20-inch light-metal wheels wrapped in 255/30 tires at the front and 305/25 at the back.
