FAB-Design Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG

BY Joel Tam

Swiss tuner FAB-Design has taken the SLS AMG to a new level. True to the company's philosophy of creating something more exclusive than the factory vehicle, the FAB-Design SLS is the result.

One of the main areas FAB-Design focused on was aerodynamics. To improve the already phenomenal SLS (it can drive upside dwn after all), developers from Mellingen developed and mounted a front spoiler lip with vertically mounted daylight driving lights along with a rear apron with integrated diffuser in a similar design to the front element.
An equally output-boosting rear spoiler that was specially constructed to harmonise with the factory mounted extendable counterpart crowns it all.

The optical and aerodynamic cherry on the SLS cake are the side skirts made of visible carbon fiber. A further highlight on the retro-sportscar are the 3-piece 20" Evoline wheels. The classic hole-design complimenting the equally classic sportscar silhouette of the FAB-Design SLS.

In addition, a sports suspension was mounted that equally satisfies the requirement for both comfort and sport. At the rear of the vehicle a FAB stainless steel sports exhaust with four oval endpipes lets the exhaust gases go sonorously free. Integrated valve steering gives the driver the possibility - according to the occasion - of choosing between a sonorous and a discrete sound. The FAB developers also worked on the improving the performance and thereby achieved an every day capability of 611 bhp - instead of the normal 571 bhp of factory vehicles.
