Instead of adorning Mercedes-Benz‘s lovely SLS AMG with a traditional body kit full of lip spoilers, Hamann decided not to mess with the SLS AMG’s natural good looks, but rather bolt-on some larger components to make it stand out.

On all four corners are larger 21-inch Design Edition Race “Anodized” wheels with 9-inch width in the front and and 11-inch width in the rear. Hamann claims these wheels are “ultra light” sporting titanium wheel bolts and a matte black anodized finish to the face. They come mounted with 245/30/21 tires in the front and 295/25/21 tires in the rear for a measly $13,550. Yikes.

And if that wasn’t luxurious enough for you, you can lower your SLS AMG by 1.2-inches with Hamann’s suspension. And lastly is a stainless steel quad-tipped exhaust system for the awesome 6.2-liter V8.

We have to admit, that we’re torn. One one side we’re glad that Hamann didn’t come out with a styling package for the SLS AMG and ruin the design of the car. On the other hand, we’d like to see what a true Hamann SLS AMG would look like.
