The German tuner Lorinser will bring to 2012 Essen Motor Show a 2013 Mercedes-Benz SL 500 with a special body kit and performance package. 
 
For the power boost the German tuner chose to modify the ECU. Thanks to this, the 4.7 liter V8 engine is producing 530 hp (390 kW) and 590 lb-ft (800 Nm) of torque. Lorinser also remove the electronic speed limiter which allows the SL 500 to reach 174 mph (280 km/h). 
 
The body kit include wider front and rear bumpers, a decklid spoiler, restyled side skirts, a different nose and a rear diffuser that covers the new exhaust system with four pipes. The German equation ends with a special set of 20 inch RSK8 wheels. 
 
Lorinser add a lowering kit that allows the driver to manually lower the ride height. This package is only available for the versions fitted with the Active Body Control system.  On the inside there are accessories made from carbon fiber, wood or aluminum.
