Daimler's hot hatch has received a full matte chrome red body wrap from Germany-based Folien Experte.

Judging by the rear wing and the extra flics on the front apron, this appears to be the Edition 1 version which was available during the model's first twelve months on the market. The standard body paint has now been covered by Folien Experte's matte chrome red wrap available for a cool €4,200. This particular car also has a multitude of other upgrades, such as the KW coilover suspension priced at €3,000 and 19-inch Brabus Monoblock F wheels shod in Pirelli P Zero 235/35 R19 tires offered as a full set for €4,500.

Matching these cosmetic updates is a more powerful four-cylinder, 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine that now churns 435 PS (320 kW), up from the pre-facelift's stock 360 PS (265 kW). However, this upgrade doesn't come cheap as the new race filters, sports exhaust system and ECU remap done by PP-Performance will set you back an additional €7,117 while a one-year warranty and TÜV certification cost an additional €498.
