The aftermarket specialist at Carlsson have recently pulled the wraps off their latest creation, the CK63 RSR, ahead of its public debut scheduled for the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, next month.
As you have probably already figured it out, the Carlsson CK63 RSR is actually based on the Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG and the model is coming with some interesting updates, including the 405 mm front vented discs with six piston calipers, the 19- or 20-inch alloy wheels covering them, the electrically retractable rear spoiler, the carbon fiber front spoiler lip, the black stainless braking cooling intakes, intake grilles and some other tweaks, which will help it stand out from a crowd.
The new Carlsson CK63 RSR is also coming with an electronically controlled sound valve, with a high performance stainless steel exhaust system with catalytic convertors and with specially made coil-overs bringing it 30 mm closer to the road. The total output produced by the AMG engine now stands at 700 HP (515 kW), available at 5,700 rpm, and the torque has been electronically limited to 1,000 Nm, and it’s available between 2,000 and 4,500 rpm. The model can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.9 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 340 km/h (211 mph).
