IForged Misha Designs Widebody Mercedes SL: Behind the Scenes
Several finishing touches were done to the widebody SL, including match-painting the front grille and highlighting the intake valve covers in McLaren Orange to match the bright calipers. Carbonio then came through with a carbon fiber intake and engine cover while Status Racing harnesses will complement the interior modifications.
And of course the biggest highlight to the entire project is a set of iForged concave carbon fiber wheels. Before the built the car did have a 12.5-inch wide setup in the rear, but they were swapped out for an even wider pair of 14-inch wheels.
