manufacturer Carlsson who is specialised on Mercedes Benz, extends
its co-operation with the leather lifestyle brand Etienne Aigner AG
and will exhibit the world premiere of the Carlsson Aigner CK65 RS
“Eau Rouge“ Dark Edition at the Zürich Auto Show (Auto Zürich Car
Show, 13th - 16th November 2008, exhibition stand SAHLI & FREI AG -
hall 2, stand C 01). Produced in small series, the luxury coupé is
available with either a V12 Bi-Turbo with 705 hp or a second power
level with 756 hp and 1,150 Nm.
The newly designed car front dominates the exceptional appearance.
Both the front skirt with a front spoiler made of solid carbon as
well as the car paint which renders appealing contrasts in two
colours are eye-catchers. The special line Dark Edition of Carlsson
Aigner CK65 RS “Eau Rouge“ which is produced in small series and
limited to only ten cars, is exclusively available in the double-coloured
combination obsidian black metallic with Himalaya-gray. Shaded
Bi-Xenon headlights with cone-shaped lights and the radiator grill
with the jumping Carlsson horse perfect the front appearance.
Moreover, the sides are dominated by the three-part forged rims in
21”. The glazed finished surface of the light alloy rims
manufactured in forged technology, offers an absolutely masterful
The electrically adjustable sport seats with multi-contour function
and seat heating have been upholstered with high-class leather
according to the philosophy of the Leather Lifestyle Brand Aigner.
Superb craftsmanship characterises the newly created interior. With
the ergonomically shaped Carlsson sport steering wheel in a Leather/Alcantara-combination,
the driver can control the Carlsson Aigner in a very pleasing way.
Carlsson sport aluminium pedal pads and illuminated door sill
protectors, as well as numerous other optical refinements guide the
way into a world full of luxurious elegance.
The wooden appliqués were adjusted to the colour of the car paint
and all visible plastic parts were covered with noble Aigner-Leather.
The Aigner-A, embossed in the front headrests and the reverse side
of the front seats, confirm the exclusive origin. Moreover, the
complete car interior, including handholds, sun shields and rear
screen frame has been covered with Aigner-Alcantara.
The Carlsson sport exhaust system renders more output and an
especially powerful sound. The rear section of the Carlsson Aigner
CK65 is dominated by four end pipes in Carlsson design which impress
by their sportive, earthy sound. In comparison to the serial exhaust
system, the exhaust back pressure and pipe guide are optimised.
Therewith, Carlsson achieves an improved torque and a higher
performance. The new Carlson aerodynamics kit once again skilfully
underlines the elegant silhouette of the basis model. But the
Carlsson Aigner CK65 “Eau Rouge“ Dark Edition has its own identity
and an own profile, both in the exterior and also in the interior.
The front spoilers and rear skirt lip are designed in the typical
Carlsson Diffuser Look and the striking rear spoiler also eases
handling the luxury coupe at high speeds. The exclusive Carlsson
aerodynamics parts are made of high-class and ultra-light solid
carbon, a material which is mainly used in the Formula 1.
Electronic lowering C-Tronic®
For the Carlsson Aigner
CK65, Carlsson exclusively offers an electronic lowering kit C-Tronic®
SUSPENSION which lowers the car by approx. 30 mm. But the Carlsson
C-Tronic® SUSPENSION does not only lower the centre of gravity, but
thanks to an elaborate technology, also allows an intelligent
interaction with the conditions on the road. When the road
conditions are bad and continuously strong deflections arise, the
height of the vehicle is automatically adjusted and the necessary
remaining spring deflection is maintained. The driver can feel the
effects of the C-Tronic® lowering by a reduced curl and
significantly more agile driving characteristics.
Therefore, the C-Tronic®
SUSPENSION also stands for more driving pleasure.
Moreover, the C-Tronic®
SUSPENSION guarantees that even when driving faster than 120 km/h,
the serially feasible maximum lowering – and therefore the minimum
vehicle level – is not undercut. This permanently guarantees a
Besides, the air
resistance and the lifting forces are lowered, as less air is
flowing under the vehicle.
The Carlsson motor
makeover includes especially adjusted motor electronics with special
ignition maps for fuel injection and ignition. At the intake side,
special sport air filters render optimal ventilation. A sport
exhaust system made of stainless steel optimises the exhaust back
pressure. Therefore, the V12 is powerfully present in all situations
and the driver can serenely draw on plentiful resources. Elegant and
unsurpassed in its finish, the Carlsson Aigner CK65 is presumably
the most exciting means of travelling at the moment. The Carlsson
Aigner CK65 ”Eau Rouge“ Dark Edition with 756 hp offers a maximum
speed of 335 km/h which is electronically regulated due to safety
reasons and excels with an acceleration from naught to 100 in 3.8
seconds. With such results, the Carlsson Aigner CK65 outpaces nearly
any other sports car.
The limited small series Carlsson Aigner CK65 “Eau Rouge“ Dark
Edition shows the many opportunities Carlsson offers for making
individual customer wishes come true. Tailor-made modifications such
as Carlsson sport running gears, Carlsson engines, Carlsson top
break systems, Carlsson wheel-tyre combinations, limited slip
differentials or also individual Carlsson Aigner interior designs
and unique automobile pieces are put to life with the help of the
Carlsson engineers and qualified specialists.
The idea, concept, preparation and finish especially show the
performance efficiency of the Automobile Manufactory Carlsson. The
Carlsson Aigner CK65 “Eau Rouge“ Dark Edition surely is the most
impressive proof for the successful synergy of two brands into a
technically as well as creatively demanding automobile. Prices for
the Carlsson Aigner CK65 ”Eau Rouge“ Dark Edition with V12 is start
from 319,000 euros and for the V12 with Carlsson-Bi-Turbo in the
second power stage from 374,000 euros.
