Carlsson, one of German tuning firms, has brought to the show a maroon Mercedes named C25 Royale which took the Mercedes SL65 AMG as its platform, different with the others at above. Currently working on cars at the SL65 AMG, Car nuances of this sport cars have a lighter burden than ever before to 180 pounds.
As part of its new 2011 generation range, automobile manufacturer Carlsson presents its C25 Royale Super GT with carbon roof and exterior, optimised driving dynamics and perfected electronics. This gives an important role to the center of gravity is lower, in addition to reducing the weight of the car, the house is to optimize performance tuning so that the handling is better. Another major step is saving included installation of full-ceramic brake system, which is 50 percent lighter than the previous.
Carlsson C25 officially debuted last year at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show and this year in 2011 Geneva with more goodies and even cooler name. 2011 Carlsson Sport Cars C25 Royale Super GT Tuning is a project based on tuning for Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG. 2011 Carlsson Sport Cars C25 Royale Super GT Tuning Mercedes SL 65 AMG contains a number of elements from carbon fiber and the optimum driving dynamics and sophisticated electronics. Carlsson will only build 25 units of 2011 Mercedes SL-Class Super GT C25 Royale by Carlsson, a unit for each state vehicle was sold in.
Carlsson has realised more than 70 innovations in the new C25 Royale. The car's handling in particular is better than ever before. Plus, compared to the basis model Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG, the C25 Royale is 180 kilogram lighter which is due largely to the complete real carbon exterior. This not only reduces the overall weight of the Super GT, it also effectively lowers the car's centre of gravity and allows more dynamic cornering ability and more agile handling as Carlsson has revised the vehicle's entire weight distribution and installed a differential lock. The full ceramic brake system reduces the weight by 50 percent and reduces the unsprung mass for a more dynamic handling. The generously designed ceramic brake discs and the solid aluminium callipers allows later braking coming into bends while the revised electronics guarantee improved response, giving greater dynamism when coming off bends.
The 2011 Carlsson Sport Cars C25 Royale Super GT Tuning Mercedes SL 65 AMG's outstanding performance data is impressive too. The strikingly beautiful sports cars coupé with the V12 biturbo engine achieves 753 hp (554 kW) and maximum torque of 1320 Newton metres (which is limited electronically to 1150 Newton metres). This allows the Super GT to race from 0 to 100 kph in just 3.7 seconds and to achieve a maximum speed of 352 kph.
The 2011 Carlsson Sport Cars C25 Royale Super GT Tuning Mercedes SL 65 AMG is not just an exclusive vehicle with outstanding performance data. The engineers at Gut Wiesenhof, Carlsson's headquarters in Germany, are the ones in the world to bring together the performance data of a super car with everyday practicality. "There are more than enough super cars around that can only be driven safely on a racing track", says engineer Markus Schuster, Managing Director at Carlsson. "We deliberately wanted to develop a car that is exclusive on the one hand but can still be used for the daily commute to the office. A Super GT which can go from 0 to 100 kph in just 3.7 seconds while at the same time offering the utmost in ride comfort."
In particular, the intelligent C-Tronic® SUSPENSION developed by Carlsson guarantees excellent ride comfort. This system measures a whole range of parameters, like the spring rate, on a continuous basis, which allows it to detect the road conditions and the driving style. Where road conditions are poor, the C-Tronic® raises the residual spring travel, thereby providing optimal ride comfort. As soon as the surface conditions have improved, the system will lower the entire suspension completely automatically and achieve perfect cornering dynamics.
In addition, Carlsson (which has been recognised as an independent manufacturer for some years now by the German Federal Motor Transport Authority Kraftfahrtbundesamt) can offer one excellent unique selling point: Not more than 25 specimens of the 2011 Carlsson Sport Cars C25 Royale Super GT Tuning Mercedes SL 65 AMG are being made. And, to enhance the exclusivity of this ultra-limited edition still further, Carlsson is only delivering one vehicle per country. Six vehicles are already sold and will be delivered to the customers in 2011. It takes six month from order to delivery.
