(from ART Press
Release) ART Program 216
ART’s Program 216 is aimed at the new CL in the exclusivity of the
Mercedes-Benz luxury class with an abundance of top-quality tuning
The ART aerodynamics set for the front and rear optimizes the
contours of the vehicle with an individual touch. In perfect harmony
with the series design of the front spoiler, fine parallel grooved
lines enhance the vehicle’s front silhouette. The eye-catching
elegant lines of the ART rear skirt give the series rear an entirely
new appearance. A rear spoiler shaped like a separation edge on the
rear hood is the third element in the ART design system for the
exterior of this beautiful coupé.
The ART interior upgrades the vehicle with an alcantara roof
liner and upholstery. Elegant combinations of alcantara and leather,
in one or several colours, leather with contrasting seams, quilting
and perforations, provide marked elegance. In conjunction with fine
wood paneling in a variety of different woods and nuances,
carbonized surfaces in magical colours, sports steering wheels with
paddle shifter, steering wheels in alcantara/leather, leather/wood,
and leather/carbon offer an extensive range to choose from for the
design of the CL interior. Every custom feature is the owner’s
choice. There are no limits to the individualization.
And under the hood: engine performance from ART includes a
Vmax delimiter for the CL and electronic performance optimization of
the motor control. They give the powerful series V8 and V12 power
units that final performance kick.
The four highly polished chrome-plated 80mm tailpipes of the ART
sports exhaust system with the ART logo draw the gaze to this
successful rear skirt solution. One right and one left rear muffler
ensure the sound is right.
The electronic suspension system from ART for the series ABC
suspension system lowers the ride height by 25mm. All other built-in
chassis control functions remain unchanged. Only the speed-dependent
ride-height control is suppressed.
For the wheel concept, ART proposes the monoART1
light-weight metal rims in dimensions 18, 19 or 20 inches for
the CL class. This individual choice of rims is multiplied by the
range of three different surfaces:
- TITANIUM special coating with highly polished spoke backs
- TITANIUM special coating with allover silky-matt surface
- Black or customized color, even two-tone, special coating in NANO
The stylish three-part ARTstar2 light-weight metal rims are
an equally good choice. With a 6-spoke design, with 36 titanium
screw joints, inside valve, shiny-silver rim star and
mirror-finished rim base it is offered in sizes 19 and 20 inches. To
customize a car still further, it is possible to have the rim star
and wheel-base painted in a special color. Of course, with a
protective nano technology coating.
