Lorinser beefs up the Mercedes-Benz SL500

Mercedes-Benz SL500 Lorinser fq

SL originally stood for Sport Light. Cars have got heavier and heavier as manufacturers have improved both safety and the interior comfort. Lorinser, though, has attempted to take back the driving pleasure implied in the letters SL wth its SL500.

The front is shaped by a new spoiler bumper that is characterised by three giant openings with racing grill inserts as well as a blade shaped spoiler hung below in the middle. The integrated end-to-end lip flows seamlessly into the widely flared Lorinser fender. Its slanted, larger air inlets represent the aura of the original even more strongly than the already successful series version.

Additional distinctive elements of the side line are the new side skirts that are also characterised in the rear part by large air openings. In addition, its contours take in the swing of the doors and bring the SL optically nearer the ground in combination with Lorinser’s lowering.

Wide tyres and light-alloy RS 9 wheels provide a theme that is carried through to the rear of the car: while the Mercedes-Benz series model tends to appear rather simple here, the Lorinser spoiler bumper draws a great deal of power from its strong contours. The observer here not only immediately notices the diffuser inset with sporty grille, but also the sculpturally moulded semi-gondolas. They house the end tips of the exhaust system with their four openings.

Drivers that aren’t satisfied with potent series engines can soon look forward to an optimisation from Lorinser engineers.
