2011 Lorinser Mercedes-Benz CLS 218


(from Lorinser Press Release)  Fascinating body design plus more – Sportservice Lorinser introduces its comprehensive range of modification options for the Mercedes CLS C218

There is nothing we can’t do! This is Lorinser’s motto for its comprehensive range of parts for the current CLS C218. The company, based in the south of Germany, has been developing and manufacturing products for personalising Mercedes vehicles from as far back as 1981. In doing so, the innovative Sportservice Lorinser team draws advantage from its experience with just about every Mercedes series. The skills gained form an optimal base for the launch of the exclusive range of modification options for the Mercedes CLS sport limousine. The result is impressive, both in terms of looks and sound: lift-reducing aerodynamic components, significantly enhanced performance, stainless steel exhaust systems with a sporty sound, striking 19 and 20-inch alloy rims and superior interior modifications make for individualised series vehicles.

Bodywork finishes in proven quality

Lorinser combines dynamic design with efficient aerodynamics. The result is sensational stylishness with optimised air flow across the vehicle outline. The shapes of the sporty and striking front spoiler bumper blend impeccably with the wider wings. Together with the rear skirt, rear lip and roof spoiler, the Lorinser body components ensure reduced lift while providing a new, attractive overall appearance. The Lorinser side skirts form an optical link between the front and rear. The tailor-made body kit is mounted on the serial attachment points, and is available from 8,230.00 Euro (incl. VAT).

Optimised performance for stretching the limits and improved driving enjoyment

The range of performance enhancements offered by Lorinser is just as extensive as the selection of Mercedes engines. For example, Sportservice offers optimised control electronics for the CLS 350 CGI, which results in an engine output of 322 HP / 237 kW at 6200 RPM. At the same time the maximum torque increases to 400 Nm between 2900 and 5000 RPM. In this connection, Lorinser has also lifted the limit of 250 km/h, allowing the car to reach an impressive 265 km/h.

Lorinser sport rear silencers that have been aligned to the different performance kits are also available. The range includes four-pipe systems, which ensure a full and powerful sound.

Sporty or elegant

The Lorinser rim range has been created entirely according to the requirements of Mercedes customers. Be it sporty and striking, or elegant and sophisticated – Lorinser offers various wheel designs and sizes. The RS8 is a 19-inch wheel with turbine look. The recommended wheel/tyre combination comprises 8.5Jx19-inch rims with 255/35ZR19 tyres for the front and 9.5Jx19-inch rims with 285/30ZR19 tyres for the rear.

The RS8 tyre is also available in a 20-inch design. In this instance, Lorinser recommends using 9.0Jx20-inch rims with 255/30ZR20 tyres for the front axle and 10.0Jx20-inch rims with 295/25ZR20 tyres for the rear axle.

Another highlight in the range of rims offered is the one-piece Lorinser alloy wheel, known as the RS9. The five slotted, silver triple spokes are distinctive for this modern style of monoblock design. But the RS9 features a great deal more than a superior look: state-of-the-art manufacturing processes, precision-milled surfaces and the use of special aluminium alloys ensure maximum bearing loads at a low weight. This rim has been specially adapted to the design and technical requirements of the current Mercedes model range, and is available in both 19 and 20-inch dimensions. The recommended wheel/tyre combination for the 20-inch variant is available in 9.0Jx20-inch rims with 255/30ZR20 tyres for the front and 10.0Jx20-inch rims with 295/25ZR20 tyres for the rear.

Highest technical requirements combined with sporty elegance set the RSK6 designer wheel apart from other wheels. The multi-part alloy rim with five spokes and stainless steel connecting bolts boasts a sophisticated look as well as excellent finishes. The rim comes in dimensions of 8.5Jx19 inches and 9.5Jx19 inches as well as in 9,0Jx20 and 10,0Jx20.

Lorinser recommends using high-performance tyres from its technology partner, Continental.

The vehicle suspension springs, which lower the centre of gravity of the sport limousine by around 25 millimetres on the front and rear axles, add to its sporty appearance. A car lowering set for vehicles with Airmatic is currently being tested.

Interior with perfected technology

As a supplement to existing interiors available ex-plant, Lorinser offers stylish accessories such as aluminium pedals and door sills with an illuminated Lorinser logo. On request, Lorinser offers everything that makes car aficionados’ hearts beat faster – from a personalised set of foot mats to a complete leather interior – and all with precision craftsmanship.
