The new Cabriolet of the Mercedes-Benz E class has once again set the standards for travelling in elegance, with open canopy. The automobile manufacturer Carlsson has now lent to the open-top four-seater an extra dash of sportiness. With 20 per cent more power, the new aerodynamic package and the fine interiors, Carlsson guarantees agile travelling of the highest level.
The core piece of the sporty conversion is the additional ECU C-Tronic® DIESEL POWER. This plug-and-play solution enhances the performance of the V6-Diesel engine by more than 20 percent, from 231 hp (170 kW) to 280 hp (206 kW). The optimised engine management also has an effect on the maximum torque. Instead of 540 Newton metres, the driver now has 648 Newton metres at his disposal. The right sound is ensured by the sport end mufflers with the two double-walled stainless steel end tubes.
The visual counterpart of this lies in the enhanced sportiness in the new aerodynamic package of Carlsson. The automobile manufacturer based in Merzig, Germany has refined the chassis with its own front spoiler and the front spoiler lip, which can also be obtained in carbon. The rear spoiler not only rounds up the heightened dynamic appearance, but also ensures optimised airflow together with the entire aerodynamic package, thereby ensuring better contact with the road.
Besides this, the sports suspension springs ensure better a contact with the road surface. These lower the Mercedes-Cabriolet 30 millimetres and give rise to a significantly more dynamic response while negotiating curves.
The extensive programme of Carlsson-light alloy wheels are and absolute highlight. Here the palette ranges from the classic sixteen spoke wheel 1/16 in 18 inches through the trendy double coloured design 1/5 REVO to the high end cast wheels 1/10 Ultra Light in 20 inches, which combine low weight with the highest load bearing capacity.
And Carlsson continues with the sportily elegant finishing in the car interiors. Thus, the automatic gear shift lever in leather and Alcantara sets a fine accent, like the aluminium door pins , the soft velvet doormats with the Carlsson logo and the aluminium pedals together with footrests.
Of course, the Mercedes expert Carlsson delivers all products with certificates by the German Technical Control Board (TÜV), so that these can be entered without any problems in the vehicle documents.
