F or for an even more dynamic look, Väth has given the new Mercedes SLK a front spoiler lip made of carbon fiber. The spoiler lip on the trunk lid is also made of the noble material in a visible construction. Carbon laminate also forms the basis for the new applications in the interior of the roadster.
Väth-SLK up to 300 km /h fast
Väth fills the two-seater's wheelhouses with 20-inch forged wheels. At the front, 235/30 tires rotate, while 265/25 tires are fitted at the rear. In addition, Väth installs a fully adjustable coilover kit in the Mercedes SLK that allows lowering of the suspension by between 20 and 65 millimeters.
The brake system is upgraded with flexible steel pipes, the exhaust system has stainless steel manifolds and a four-pipe rear silencer with oval twin tailpipes, depending on the engine.
Performance increases for all SLK
But Väth also offers more performance for the SLK engines thanks to modified engine controls. The SLK 200 increased from 184 to 210 hp and 310 Nm, the SLK 250 from 204 to 244 hp and 360 Nm. In the SLK 350, the output even increases from 306 to 330 hp. The maximum torque after the power cure is 390 Nm.
With the speed throttle removed, the SLK 350 can run at speeds of up to 269 km /h. With the SLK 55 AMG as the basis, 465 hp and 580 Nm or 491 hp and 600 Nm are possible in two stages. The top speed then increases to 280 and 300 km /h, respectively. The latter version should be reserved for export.
