Hidden behind the name “Borasca” is the Spanish designation for storm and thunderstorm. And in the case of this gorgeous interpretation of an open Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG by the company INDEN Design, this term fits like a glove, because with his reconstruction, Joachim Inden has conquered the fans of the trademark with the star, by storm.
It was surely not an easy task to modify the design of an almost perfect roadster right from the factory without endangering the proportions and the sense of harmony of the curvy lines of the bodywork. To avoid falling into this trap, Joachim Inden opted for a good number of minor but highly effective modifications of the sophisticated outer shell of the SLS AMG roadster. For an optimized aerodynamics – i.e. more contact pressure at the front – INDEN Design also integrated a new bumper bar in this position in addition to an individual front spoiler lip made completely of high-grade carbon fiber tissue and a new engine hood. The side silhouette of the SLS “Borrasca” stands out not just for its new mud guard with inserts of carbon fibers and black fins but also for the completely new side skirts with rear air shaft. Even in the rear, Joachim Inden has applied exclusive carbon fiber in the new rear apron including diffuser. The processing of exhaust gas is realized through a stainless steel sports exhaust system with flap control, having original AMG end-pipes.
The power of the Mercedes Benz SLS AMG roadster that has been boosted to 635 Horse Power is pressed on the road surface through a set of classical light alloy rims with ten arched double spokes. In combination with a decent lowering of approx. 15 mm, the wheel set fills the wheel houses of the SLS perfectly well in the format 10.5×21 inches for the front and 11.5×21 inches for the rear. INDEN Design has mounted Continental tires in the formats 265/30/21 and 295/25/21 to match. Website: www.indendesign.de
