Lumma Tuning has decided to update the first generation Mercedes-Benz SLK 32 AMG (R170).
Lumma Tuning has decided to update the first generation Mercedes-Benz SLK (R170).
Gone but not forgotten, the original SLK still looks appealing even though the first generation went out of production a decade ago. Seen here is the range-topping SLK 32 AMG introduced in 2001 which has received several visual tweaks from Lumma such as the redesigned front bumper with cup spoiler blade, an aluminum look for the grille and different fenders.
Also part of the "Black Move" package are the rear wheel arch widenings, updated side skirts and a rear apron bumper with diffuser. Stock wheels were replaced by Lumma with a 20-inch lightweight alloy set wrapped around in 235/30 R20 front and 285/25 R20 rear tires matched with a Bilstein coilover suspension system and a 30mm spacer set.
The engine department has been left untouched so the SLK 32 AMG comes with the same supercharged V6 3.2-liter engine delivering 349 bhp (260 kW) and 332 lb-ft (450 Nm) to the rear wheels through a five-speed SpeedShift transmission. This hardware arrangement is enough to allow the SLK 32 AMG do the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run in 5.2 seconds on its way onto an electronically-capped top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h), not too shabby for a model released 13 years ago.
