Last year in February, the Germans from Hamann were introducing their ‘Hawk’ upgrade package for the gullwing version Mercedes SLS AMG. Now, with less than one day left before the 2012 Geneva Motor Show kicks off, the tuner is presenting pretty much the same range of enhancements for the Roadster version.

This time the German specialist has played with a different colour (red), and has limited the usage of carbon fiber at the back to only the rear wing, while other than that everything else is almost the same, meaning a wind tunnel shaped body kit, a carbon fiber bonnet, a stainless steel exhaust system, 21 inch light metal rims and also a host of interior modifications.

We’ve seen quite a few conversions involving the Mercedes SLS AMG, and this latest one comes from Senner Tuning who say they have come up with a few ideas that brought the German Lightweight Super Sport even closer to perfection.

Their ideas translated into re-adjusting the car’s propulsion system by adding a high-performance air filter and a custom exhaust system made from stainless steel and featuring a “intelligent dynamic head control” system.

The German tuner has not yet published an official press release for this model, but its name, the BRABUS Biturbo SLS 700, indicates that we’re most likely talking about a 700 HP output from the 6.3-litre V8 powering the roadster.

Carlsson is presenting their coilover suspension program for the Mercedes SLS AMG ahead of its official debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

This kit can apply to both the hard top and the roadster version and consists of a lightweight aluminium coilover suspension with Littronic technology which raises both axles by up to 40 mm at the push of a button. Thanks to this new suspension the Carlsson Mercedes SLS AMG can easily get over speed bumps, underground park exists or rough level crossings, eliminating the danger of damaging the car’s front apron or under-body.

Daimler has released a new video with the SLS AMG Roadster. This latest promo shows the open air version driving side by side with the Gullwing model, and it underlines the thrills and pleasures offered when the 3-layer fabric roof is down.

By the way, the roof on the Mercedes SLS AMG Roadster takes 11 seconds to open or close at speeds of up to 50 Km/h, and according to the automaker, the car’s luggage compartment (equal to 173 litres) is not affected by it.

Daimler has published the first batch of official photos with the Mercedes SLS AMG Roadster which will premiere at the IAA in Frankfurt on September 13th, 2011.

This soft top version is still slightly disguised, with black camo covering the headlights and taillights as well as the automaker’s logos, but the area that has changed when compared to the coupe version, is clearly visible. Gone are the Gullwing doors, as the metal roof has been replaced with a fabric top, and in order to maintain rigidity the automaker has paid extra attention on reinforcing the chassis and adding a series of enhancements that would help maximise safety in case of a crash.

We’ve seen a good share of aftermarket components available for the Mercedes SLS AMG, and the latest tuner to join the list of suppliers is Lorinser who has launched an exclusive wheel set for the German winged coupe.

Named the RSK8, these three-part forged wheels features stainless steel bolts and 7 spokes each, and have been created using state-of-the-art production processes that assure high quality. The Lorinser RSK8 Mercedes SLS AMG wheel set is one of the lightest on the market right now, and according to the German tuner, the reduction of unsprung masses in these rims help improve the car’s braking response as well as handling.
