(from Lorinser Press
Release) Fascinating body design plus more – Sportservice
Lorinser introduces its comprehensive range of modification options
for the Mercedes CLS C218
There is nothing we can’t do! This is Lorinser’s motto for its
comprehensive range of parts for the current CLS C218. The company,
based in the south of Germany, has been developing and manufacturing
products for personalising Mercedes vehicles from as far back as
1981. In doing so, the innovative Sportservice Lorinser team draws
advantage from its experience with just about every Mercedes series.
The skills gained form an optimal base for the launch of the
exclusive range of modification options for the Mercedes CLS sport
limousine. The result is impressive, both in terms of looks and
sound: lift-reducing aerodynamic components, significantly enhanced
performance, stainless steel exhaust systems with a sporty sound,
striking 19 and 20-inch alloy rims and superior interior
modifications make for individualised series vehicles.
Bodywork finishes in proven
dynamic design with efficient aerodynamics. The result is
sensational stylishness with optimised air flow across the vehicle
outline. The shapes of the sporty and striking front spoiler bumper
blend impeccably with the wider wings. Together with the rear skirt,
rear lip and roof spoiler, the Lorinser body components ensure
reduced lift while providing a new, attractive overall appearance.
The Lorinser side skirts form an optical link between the front and
rear. The tailor-made body kit is mounted on the serial attachment
points, and is available from 8,230.00 Euro (incl. VAT).
Optimised performance for
stretching the limits and improved driving enjoyment
The range of performance
enhancements offered by Lorinser is just as extensive as the
selection of Mercedes engines. For example, Sportservice offers
optimised control electronics for the CLS 350 CGI, which results in
an engine output of 322 HP / 237 kW at 6200 RPM. At the same time
the maximum torque increases to 400 Nm between 2900 and 5000 RPM. In
this connection, Lorinser has also lifted the limit of 250 km/h,
allowing the car to reach an impressive 265 km/h.
Lorinser sport rear
silencers that have been aligned to the different performance kits
are also available. The range includes four-pipe systems, which
ensure a full and powerful sound.
Sporty or elegant
The Lorinser rim range
has been created entirely according to the requirements of Mercedes
customers. Be it sporty and striking, or elegant and sophisticated –
Lorinser offers various wheel designs and sizes. The RS8 is a
19-inch wheel with turbine look. The recommended wheel/tyre
combination comprises 8.5Jx19-inch rims with 255/35ZR19 tyres for
the front and 9.5Jx19-inch rims with 285/30ZR19 tyres for the rear.
The RS8 tyre is also
available in a 20-inch design. In this instance, Lorinser recommends
using 9.0Jx20-inch rims with 255/30ZR20 tyres for the front axle and
10.0Jx20-inch rims with 295/25ZR20 tyres for the rear axle.
Another highlight in the range of rims offered is the one-piece
Lorinser alloy wheel, known as the RS9. The five slotted, silver
triple spokes are distinctive for this modern style of monoblock
design. But the RS9 features a great deal more than a superior look:
state-of-the-art manufacturing processes, precision-milled surfaces
and the use of special aluminium alloys ensure maximum bearing loads
at a low weight. This rim has been specially adapted to the design
and technical requirements of the current Mercedes model range, and
is available in both 19 and 20-inch dimensions. The recommended
wheel/tyre combination for the 20-inch variant is available in
9.0Jx20-inch rims with 255/30ZR20 tyres for the front and
10.0Jx20-inch rims with 295/25ZR20 tyres for the rear.
Highest technical requirements combined with sporty elegance set the
RSK6 designer wheel apart from other wheels. The multi-part alloy
rim with five spokes and stainless steel connecting bolts boasts a
sophisticated look as well as excellent finishes. The rim comes in
dimensions of 8.5Jx19 inches and 9.5Jx19 inches as well as in
9,0Jx20 and 10,0Jx20.
Lorinser recommends using high-performance tyres from its technology
The vehicle suspension springs, which lower the centre of gravity of
the sport limousine by around 25 millimetres on the front and rear
axles, add to its sporty appearance. A car lowering set for vehicles
with Airmatic is currently being tested.
Interior with perfected technology
As a supplement to
existing interiors available ex-plant, Lorinser offers stylish
accessories such as aluminium pedals and door sills with an
illuminated Lorinser logo. On request, Lorinser offers everything
that makes car aficionados’ hearts beat faster – from a personalised
set of foot mats to a complete leather interior – and all with
