Kickerer is introducing the GL 42 Sport Black, their newest upgrade program for the Mercedes GL 420 CDI.
On the outside the German SUV distinguishes itself from the stock model by featuring a matte black body finish, a black grille and massive 22 inch Vogue alloys wrapped in tires size 295/35 R22, while at the interior the tuner added a sports steering wheel.
The more interesting part in under the hood where the 4.2-litre V8 common rail diesel producing 306 HP and 700 Nm of torque as standard, has been tweaked in order to deliver 380 HP and 900 Nm. The boost results from the Kicherer PowerConverter which also modifies throttle response for the electronic gas pedal, plus the new sport exhaust system which makes the massive SUV sound sportier.
The Airmatic suspension has also been tweaked in order to better accommodate the 74 HP increase.
