Supercharged GT: KICHERER
supercharger power for the SLS!
With the Mercedes-Benz
SLR anything but a successful super sports car, the designers and
technicians at Mercedes-Benz AMG have succeeded in creating a
masterpiece with the current SLS 63 AMG. And as often as we see the
SLS on the roads these days, the top-line sports car version from
AMG also seems to be experiencing rapid sales. As a result, the
specialists at KICHERER Fahrzeugtechnik have now put together and
released an impressive upgrade for their comprehensive SLS fine
It’s a high-tech vehicle with a racy name ‘SUPERCHARGED GT’, flashy,
striking and technically well-thought-out in every detail.
Maintaining their high
standards, KICHERER uses carbon-fibre exclusive to the motorsport
industry, both internally and externally. The exterior package for
the SLS consists of a hand-crafted front grille unit with large,
vertical fins, which make the front of the sports car look extremely
aggressive, and which pay homage to the 300 SL Carrera Panamericana,
from 1952. On top of that, there is a carbon front lip spoiler, a
very discreet rear diffusor and carbon fins for the front fenders
and the engine bonnet.
The eye-catching, exclusive, satin-matte black film covering the
complete bodywork really accentuates the lines of the SLS
Following an exhaustive development effort, involving many test
kilometres over a period of a year, the specialists at KICHERER have
designed and produced their own supercharger system at their home in
Stockach on Lake Constance in Germany, a world first, and pivotal to
the enhanced performance of the SLS. The clever arrangement of the
supercharger’s components means that at first glance on lifting the
bonnet, you would not know that the vehicle was supercharged! Added
to this is the fact that the newly-developed supercharger system
requires that only very few original parts need to be changed out.
For example, the upper engine air intake is retained and no
additional deflection / guide pulleys are required for the belt
drive, thus preventing annoying background noise and interference.
The supercharging pressure from one of the four outlet nozzles is
displayed to the driver in digital or analogue from on the
tachometer. For those wanting more information, a special app has
been developed to provide additional telemetry data.
With the KICHERER supercharger system on-board, the SLS 6.3
performance increases to about 700 bhp and maximum torque increases
to around an impressive 840 Nm. With this added power, the
SUPERCHARGED GT achieves 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.4 seconds, and,
thanks to the removal of the electronic Vmax (maximum speed)
blocker, it can reach a top speed of well over 300 km/h.
At over 3000 revs, as the accelerator is pressed to the floor, the
driver experiences a fantastic sensation of power as the pressure in
the KICHERER supercharger increases. The vehicle’s performance is
crowned with the back pressure controlled KICHERER stainless-steel
flap sports exhaust system, spoiling the passengers with its deep
throaty V8 sound.
The assembly, installation and maintenance of the supercharger
system are carried out exclusively on the KICHERER Fahrzeugtechnik
premises. As a matter of course, the KICHERER performance guarantee
KICHERER’s in-house RS-1 light-weight forged wheels are both
exclusive and flashy. The hand-crafted three-part wheels are size
10.0J x 20 inch up front and 11.5J x 21 inch at the back.
The SLS SUPERCHARGED GT is equipped with Michelin Pilot Super Sport
tyres for perfect adhesion to the road. Special high-tech coilovers
give superb grip and are equipped with lift function that allows the
chassis to be raised and lowered by approximately 30 mm with the
press of a button. Optionally, damper hardness can be adjusted.
Altogether this provides the ultimate in safe driving and driving
KICHERER has had special carbon-fibre accessories made for the
interior of the SUPERCHARGED GT, which refine the door interiors,
the centre console, the door sill protectors, the rear of the seats
and the stowage tray.
All up, KICHERER have created a seriously impressive top-line sports
car that is guaranteed to have you coming back for more!
