In the KICHERER version, the sporty naturally aspirated engine benefits from a performance increased by about 40 hp and 40 Nm. Consequently, this awesome powertrain disposes of more than 560 hp and comes up with a torque of more than 670 Nm. Thus equipped, the KICHERER SL 63 accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.3 seconds and reaches a top speed of 320 km/h.
At the same time, the EVO sports exhaust system eroticises its environment with a deeply saturated and thudding sound – without being so obtrusive as to get on the drivers nerves after a while.
Combined with the electronic chassis optimisation, the ultra-light 20“ RS-1 aluminium wheels guarantee a perfect grip in any driving situation.
A diffuser made of genuine carbon calms the storms that rage at the KICHERER SL’s rear end at high speeds and provides the coupé-convertible with a significantly optimised downforce. Further aerodynamic subtleties are brought about by the front apron coverings which are also made of carbon.
The carbon mirror shells, however, are telling visual expressions of the roadster’s new sportiness.
In August 2008, the second stage will be accomplished: An all-carbon rear lid with an electronically extendable rear spoiler will be available by then. It will provide the “Super” SL with an even better high speed handling.
