(from Carlsson Press Release)  Right hand drive for English aristocratic family: Carlsson CLS CK63 RS and Carlsson SLK

• Complete conversion at Manor house "Gut Wiesenhof" upon client's request
• Finest Carlsson NAPPA EXCLUSIVE leather interior
• Innovative light alloy wheel design 1/10 up to 20 inches
• V8-Biturbo with up to 649 hp (477 kW) and 900 Nm for the CK63 RS

Automobile manufacturer Carlsson introduces two new vehicle models based on the Mercedes-Benz CLS (type C 218) and the Mercedes Benz SLK (R172). They have been built as right-hand drive models upon the request of an English aristocratic family at Carlsson's manor house "Gut Wiesenhof" in Merzig, Germany.

The coupe-like silhouette of the CLS was received by the automobile manufacturer and refined with a comprehensive aerodynamic package. The new front spoiler and front spoiler lip RS made of real carbon ensure an agile appearance of the luxury sedan, and this look is supported by the black steel grille inserts. The rear spoiler and the rear apron insert with its integrated Carlsson RS rear diffuser made ​​of real carbon fibre add extra downforce and thus provide more stable road holding even at high speeds. The vehicle's performance is also impressive: Under the stretched bonnet of the top version CK63 RS, which is based on the CLS 63 AMG with performance package, Carlsson optimised the engine to 649 hp (477 kW) instead of its standard 557 hp (410 kW). The maximum torque has been increased from 800 to 900 Nm at 2000 - 4500 rpm. Thus, the acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h was reduced from 4.3 sec to 4.1 sec.

And with that, the complete Carlsson sports exhaust system with four oval tailpipes made ​​of stainless steel produces a roaring sound. For the smaller petrol and diesel engines of the C 218, Carlsson offers advanced technology and performance improvements that come with the standard Carlsson factory warranty of three years. For example, the Carlsson CK50 based on the CLS 500 has now 475 hp (349 kW) and 687 Nm of torque instead of the standard 408 hp (300 kW) and 600 Nm. With its alloy wheels, Carlsson Design 1/10 to 20 inches, the automobile manufacturer from "Gut Wiesenhof" is testing new grounds in the wheel design. Due to the complex manufacturing process, the forged wheel 1/10 Ultra Light has a weight advantage of 40 percent compared to conventional wheels with a higher standard strength and significantly improved concentricity. Alternatively, the wheel design 1/10 is also available as cast wheel in the variants Brilliant Edition, Graphite Edition and Titanium Edition.

The interior refinement of both models is the absolute climax: The automobile manufacturer Carlsson maintains its traditional craftsmanship using the finest materials such as leather, the finest Alcantara, carbon fiber, fine natural woods and various other exclusive natural materials. The choice of materials and superior execution attest to the uncompromising quality of the company-own upholstery department. The front seats, including the seats' back panels are reupholstered using Carlsson NAPPA EXCLUSIVE. In the CLS the back bench, as well as all two/four door panels received the same treatment. This vat-pigmented leather offers the feel of a fine leather glove and with a thickness of 1 to 1.4 mm is particularly resilient. Thanks to the sophisticated tanning process, the pores of the hide remain intact and thus prevent the effect known as heat accumulation. Even in the winter time, this natural material adapts immediately to the individual's body temperature.

Other high-quality components, such as velour floor mats with the Carlsson logo, scuff plates with blue illuminated Carlsson logo and polished aluminium door locking pins finish off the vehicle's interior.
In general, the sky is the limit when it comes to the wealth of variety available for the interior: The fine leather work ranges from various forms and types of perforation to the individual colouring of the hides to combinations of different materials like leather and Alcantara with matching stitching and decorative piping. All Carlsson NAPPA products are exclusively made from Central European raw materials and come from German production lines. Carlsson also takes environmental responsibility seriously; because the water needed for the production leaves the tannery in drinking water quality.

With the comprehensive customization program, the automobile manufacturer once again demonstrates its keen sense of the stylistic features of Mercedes-Benz. Thanks to the refinement by Carlsson, the standard-production, yet elegant CLS and the sporty SLK become truly unique individual vehicles.

Of the course, for all components of this finishing process, the three-year Carlsson factory warranty applies up to 100,000 km; and a TÜV certificate is always included, so the components can be easily entered into the registration papers. "Each year, approximately 150 vehicles make it through our workshop, costing between 5,000 to 85,000 €. Each vehicle finished upon our clients special request", says Markus Schuster, CEO of the Automobile Manufacture Carlsson Autotechnik.
