Click above for high-res image gallery of the ASMA Design Perfectus SLR

While we can't say we're huge fans of previous projects from ASMA Design, we understand that individual taste is beyond debate. The German tuner has customized virtually every car in the Mercedes lineup with its signature deep grilles and other styling elements that are definitely unique. And isn't that exactly what you're looking for in a personalized ride? Something unique? Something that stands out from the crowd? Something that makes a mockery of regular old off-the-rack vehicles?

While that mentality can certainly be understood when applied to models that you might pass on the road every day, we don't know what to think of doing this tuner treatment to an already great supercar like the Mercedes McLaren SLR. We get something like the RENNtech version, which turns the SLR into a DTM racer, but this new ASMA Design SLR is simply beyond us. Dubbed the ASMA Design Perfectus SLR, it was apparently designed for the Royal Family of Abu Dhabi, but will be available to any commoner with an SLR, too. While the bump in horsepower to 700 is attractive, we can't really say the same for the changes to the bodywork. If this seems like something you'd like done to your SLR, ASMA will be happy to take your €1 million.

      Can someone send a bomb package to the ASMA offices ?! This is yet another Merc they absolutely ruin!

      Pontiac called, they want their SEMA Sunfire back.
      • 6 Years Ago
      wow, really? such a nice car with a 80's body kit on it?
        • 6 Years Ago
        Agreed, I lived in Florida and saw way to many cars like these in the 80's that where just horrible with all the tacky stuff on it.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Right. And it doesn't even look like they polished it after gluing it on.

      its going to Abu Dhabi? well that explains everything.....

      Pretty hard to make an SLR look like a mid-80s Firebird. Is there a goldchain brigade in Deutcheland?

      And I thought the G6 GXP was funny looking in the front end.
      • 6 Years Ago
      It´s a SLRized Fiero!

      The front end reminds me of the Spy vs. Spy cartoons in MAD Magazine.

      "we understand that individual taste is beyond debate". Why? I appreciate that matters of opinion can be subjective, but let's at least agree philisophically that some opinions are better than others. Clearly anyone who prefers this bodykit serves as a testament to that. If you truly believe this bodykit improves the styling of the SLR, then you have bad taste.

      ASMA should have called it the Attack SLR. I'm having one right now.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Hey, that cardboard with peeling paint that they used for bumper was stolen from my recycling bin!
        • 6 Years Ago
        Could not restrain myself. Those 2-inch wide gaps in body panels are laughable - incredibly poor fit-and-finish.

        I also looked at other examples of ASMA "design" - Jesus, why do they hate Mercedes so much? I understand, MB may not be the #1 choice for everyone, but it is simply wrong to mutilate every single vehicle in MB's lineup.

      This car says:

      "Your understanding that I have a lot of money is more important than you thinking I have good taste."
