Press Release) FAB-Design SLR "Desire"
With the SLR "Desire", FAB Design has once more demonstrated its
competence in the field of high-end luxury car customisation.
From the FAB Design
high-performance engine which generates an unbelievable performance
of 750hp and a maximum torque of 1,080Nm to the perfectly designed
FAB Design interior - nearly any relevant part of the Mercedes super
sports car has been customised and brought to perfection with the
highest level of technical expertise by the FAB Design specialists.
The FAB Design body
which has been redesigned by the Swiss specialist for this very
exquisite masterpiece is made of ultra sturdy but extremely light
and precious carbon which is produced in an autoclave - as is the
case in aerospace industry and in Formula 1 - and in accordance with
highest quality standards. At several exposed spots, the material is
even visible since it has been clear-varnished in order to set
Apart from the front and
rear fenders, it also comprises new and exclusive FAB Design side
skirts with special recesses for the FAB Design high-performance
sports exhaust system whose pipes come out on the vehicle's sides as
is the case with the standard SLR.
redesigned motor sports front apron as well as the reshaped bonnet
which is adapted to the style of the new front side and to the wider
fenders are further exclusive FAB Design highlights.
Even though, compared to the standard SLR, the vehicle has gained
considerably in width, once again, the FAB Design specialists have
succeeded in creating an absolutely harmonious silhouette.
This is the reason why the FAB Design specialists had the idea of
creating something very special for the vehicle's rear end.
The rear panel,
completely redesigned by FAB Design, frames a huge diffuser which
reduces the lift force. At the same time, the optionally available
FAB Design rear wing spoiler increases the downforce at the rear
axle without affecting the functionality of the brake assist inside
the rear lid.
The result is a considerable improvement of driving dynamics and,
thus, also of the driving safety at high and peak speeds which the
FAB- Design "Desire" will reach in the twinkling of an eye thanks to
its enormous engine performance.
The FAB Design
specialists have achieved a further significant improvement of
driving characteristics by installing their special sports
suspension and by equipping the vehicle with huge forged FAB Design
20" wheels which are provided with special high-performance 265/30
ZR 20 and 325/25 ZR 20 tyres by technology partner Michelin.
In the fist place, the
interior equipment impresses with the way it harmonises with the
vehicle's colour. The interior is completely composed of black FAB
DESIGN leather. The specially developed red FAB Design croco-style
leather sets additional stylish accents. The FAB Design interior
emphasises the appearance of the "Desire" with race character and
In order to make sure
that the FAB Design "Desire" will not be taken for a toothless
tiger, the FAB Design specialists have focussed all their expertise
and experience on the super sports car's powertrain.
Thanks to extensive
modifications of the engine periphery and of the hard and software,
the FAB Design high-performance powertrain now generates 750hp
instead of the standard SLR's 626hp. The maximum torque has been
increased from 780Nm to 1,080Nm.
The result of all those
efforts: The FAB Design "Desire" reaches a regulated top speed of
310 km/h and passes the 100 km/h mark in 3.6 seconds.
demonstration of engine force is, of course, rounded off by the
infernal sound of the FAB Design high-performance sports exhaust
system's total number of six tailpipes.
With the SLR "Desire",
FAB Design has made another impressive statement of its special
class in the field of high-end luxury car customisation.
Design has limited the number of vehicles strictly to 15, and,
although it was shown in Geneva only, the whole production is
already sold out.
