While pairing up a model with a nice car for a photo shoot isn’t anything groundbreaking, taking a modified Mercedes SLS and combining it with a former playmate is something we thought should probably catch your attention. Kicherer decided to share its matte black “angry and aggressive” SLS with this stunning, yet classy, photoshoot.
The SLS 63 Supersport GT sports a matte black paint job along with a hand-made front grille (with huge vertical fins) accented by carbon fins on the mudguard and hood. Performance is upgraded to go along with the menacing looks, upgrading horsepower to around 621-hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. The extra power comes courtesy of an ECU retune and sport exhaust system.
Easily the best part of the package are the RS-1 forged wheels. Staggered with a 20×10-inch setup in the front and a 21×11.5-inch setup in the rear, the three-piece rollers definitely work for the SLS. The suspension is also adjustable allowing the vehicle to be lifted or lowered 1.2-inches at the push of a button.
Lastly, the interior can receive carbon fiber accessories from center console to door entrance border covers.

Quite possibly the most radically built Mercedes SLS yet, FAB Design has officially named their widebody SLS tuning program: Gullstream. Originally revealed in a light blue shade, FAB Design has now shown off all the lines and curves of its custom SLS with a bright white variant. Along with unveiling this version, FAB Design has also released some more details on the package.
At the heart of it all is a widebody kit that features an all new front bumper, fenders, side skirts, rear quarter panels, rear bumper and rear diffuser. A lip spoiler made of carbon fiber is probably the most subtle of all the upgrades while the roof receives a non-functional air scoop.
For wheels, the SLS AMG runs a staggered 10-inch and 12-inch wide setup of three-piece Evolution wheels that feature a concave design. Suspension duties are handled with Koni’s coilovers that can also be found on the SLS GT3 race car, giving the car that ‘stance’ look. FAB has also designed their own quad-tipped exhaust system for the SLS AMG.
Overall power gains goes from 563-hp to 607-hp. Pricing hasn’t been announced, but chances are you either can’t afford it, or don’t want to.
