Thanks to comprehensive modifications, a ‘normal’ Mercedes-Benz CLS AMG is transformed into an exclusive KICHERER Mercedes-Benz CLS 6.3 Yachting. For a more noticeably individual look, Kicherer, the specialist auto-tuners from Stockach in Germany, have given the Mercedes-Benz CLS a set of top-quality KICHERER RS-1 forged wheels; on the front axle in size 20 inch and on the rear axle in size 21 inch. To make sure this combination not only looks good as it sits in the vehicle’s wheel arches, but also fits technically, the chassis frame has been optimised by means of electronic adjustment, including sporting characteristic curve. Behind the exclusive-design wheels is hidden an in-house high performance braking system with steel flex brake lines, which generate the sorts of deceleration values seen on top-level sports cars. An optical highlight is the exclusive KICHERER full-cover film in star-graphite, which converts the Mercedes-Benz CLS 6.3 Yachting to a unique item.
In terms of power, the engine performance of the 5.5 litre Biturbo has been raised to 625 hp, which also brings with it an increase in torque, to an impressive 860 Nm. The removal of the electronic Vmax (maximum speed) blocker ensures that the Mercedes-Benz CLS 6.3 Yachting can now easily race along at more than 300 km/h. A KICHERER PowerConverter increases the sense of acceleration by neutralising the moment of inertia on the electronic accelerator pedal. Not only does the wheel and tyre combination ensure optimum drive, i.e. perfect grip, but there is now also a special, in-house limited slip differential with variable slip.
For the interior of the Mercedes-Benz CLS, which, in the AMG version, is already fairly decently outfitted as it rolls off the production lines, KICHERER has designed an exclusive YACHTING full-outfitting for its range, in which leather, Alcantara and carbon-fibre have been utilised in almost extravagant ways.
