Vath Mercedes-Benz SLS Roadster
The SLS Roadster represented here has been supercharged by VÄTH company. A bundle of measures has been taken with this V63 SUPERCHARGED, i.e. installation of compressor kits and an air box, individual sharp tuning of the engine electronics and the increase of the Vmax. This once again proves its efficiency. Out of the 6.208 cm in the company was able to get 702 or 850 Nm torsion torque for 3.6 seconds for the spurt from 0 to 100 km/h and a Vmax of 330 km/h. With the data on the fuel cooler and the enlarged gear box oil cooler, the car features more helpful tools. To optimize the high performance brake system the car has been equipped with brake discs of more than 405-mm on VA and the extremely robust steel flax lines. A stainless steel exhaust system with throttle control is installed on demand. As an alternative there is also a stainless steel exhaust system with sports catalyst.
The wheel-tire combination consists of three-part forged VÄTH 9.5x20 inches wheels with a set of tires of the following dimensions: 265/30-20 on the front and 12x20 inches with 315/25-20 – on the rear axle. An absolute novelty is the set of threaded sportsprings complete suspension for SLS vehicles with AMG RIDE CONTROL developed by VÄTH company. This thread sports spring which goes with the nose-lift does not affect the functionality and enables the RIDE CONTROL functionality and features electronic damper calibration in the comfortable stage and in sport tuning and lowering of 20 – 45 mm. Certainly, the shock absorbers are adjustable in terms of height and hardness what leads to the safe and comfortable handling on the roads and race tracks.
The front spoiler, boot spoiler with spoiler limp, side skirts and brake ventilation are made of high quality carbon. The sporty steering wheel with the leather/leather interior version is available with carbon or finewood. Striking, as in the direct line of sight, the speedometer shows up to 400 km/h.
