Ashley over at eMercedesBenz.com tipped us to this one - eurotuner KLEEMANN's new package to pump up that new S-Class you've been eyeing.
The S50 S3, announced Wednesday, features KLEEMANN's body kit, a lowered suspension, a big-brake kit, new wheels sporting 285/30 tires in the rear and 265/35's in the front, and engine mods ranging from a reprogrammed ECU and custom exhaust system to a supercharger system slated for introduction early next year.
Full specs after the jump.
KLEEMANN S50 S3
KLEEMANN has developed a new programme of aerodynamic enhancement parts for the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.
The redesigned exterior transforms the S-Class from an understated luxury cruiser into a forceful looking sports saloon.
The deep front spoiler features a big ?mouth? split into two sections with integrated fog lights on each side - absolutely KLEEMANN. The rear skirt with its built in diffuser panel, and trapezoid rear mufflers is another recognizable KLEEMANN characteristic.
Wide side skirts complete the stylish design and the S-Class has got a sporty, ground hugging appearance emphasized by the EBL Module lowering the body up to 35 mm.
Power to match the looks - Brand new V8-Kompressor under development.
To match the muscular and sporty looks of the car, a new engine modification package has been developed: A reprogramming of the ECU, high-flow air filters, tubular exhaust headers and a complete exhaust system increases power output by 40 Hp and 40 Nm.
For both the V6-powered S350 and the V8-powered S500 an all new Kompressor System is under development, and will be introduced to the market in Q1 2006.
Enhanced grip - Superb brakes
Fitted with the largest KB8 High Performance Brake system, the S50 features 380 x 34 mm vented and cross-drilled two-piece brake discs with eight piston forged calipers on the front axle. Rear brakes are 345 x 32 mm vented and cross-drilled two-piece brake discs with four piston forged calipers. All KLEEMANN brake systems come with separate left and right discs.
The massive brake callipers of the KB8 system are fitted behind the well known TS-6 alloys. Tires in sizes 285/30-ZR20 and 265/35-ZR20 ensure outstanding grip, and when fitted with the KLEEMANN LSD on the rear differential, optimum traction can be maintained even while cornering at high speeds.
