Carlsson Aigner CK65 Eau Rouge Mercedes-Benz CL
Mercedes-Benz tuning specialists Carlsson have joined forces with international leather-lifestyle brand Etienne Aigner to develop the Carlsson Aigner CK65 "Eau Rouge". Made in an exclusive small series, the luxury coup based on the Mercedes-Benz CL produces over 700 bhp and 1,100 Nm after being breathed on by Carlsson.
The engine conversion by Carlsson includes a special electronic control unit with special maps for injection and ignition. On the intake side, sports air filters ensure optimum aspiration. On the outlet side, a stainless-steel sports exhaust system with high-performance metal catalytic converters and sports silencers cut back-pressure to a minimum. Another measure to boost engine performance is improved intercooling, which reduces charge-air temperature. Thus, the V12 is always raring to go and the driver can rely on having more than adequate power on hand regardless of the situation.
Elegant and with an unsurpassed finish, the Carlsson Aigner CK65 is undoubtedly the most exciting way to travel today. For example, the Carlsson Aigner CK65 "Eau Rouge" is not only very fast - its top speed is electronically regulated for safety reasons to 320 km/h - but also leaves almost every sports car of the world standing with a 0-100 km/h time of just 3.9 seconds.
With the Carlsson Aigner CK65 "Eau Rouge", Carlsson has also created a link to the world of motor racing. The car is named after one of the most famous race-track curves, the Eau Rouge in Spa Francorchamps.
Etienne Aigner has agreed to provide the interior appointments for the Carlsson Aigner CK65 "Eau Rouge". A combination of the renowned Aigner leather and Aigner Alcantara make getting into and sitting in the car a delight. The redesigned interior is characterised by craftsmanship of the highest standard. With the ergonomically designed sports steering wheel in leather and Alcantara or leather and wood, keeping the Carlsson Aigner under control is a particularly pleasant tactile experience. Carlsson aluminium pedals and illuminated sill embellishers point the way to a world of sporting luxury.
