Carlsson RS aerodynamic package for the Mercedes-Benz S-class

The flow-optimized aerodynamic package RS comprises a new front spoiler and a grill insert made of electropolished stainless steel. Additional headlights (fog and high beam lights), vertical LED daytime running lights as well as a redesigned rear skirt with four oval tail pipes and a small spoiler are also included. For the S 600 Sedan, Carlsson provides new side skirts with integrated grill inserts made of stainless steel, thus making the side view of the Mercedes-Benz appear even more dynamic and powerful.

The V12 bi-turbo engine’s performance upgrade from 517 hp to 600 hp is achieved by a software optimization, a new sports air filter and a rear silencer, while the maximum torque is electronically limited to 1024 Newton meters. This enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 4,4 seconds (standard: 4,6 seconds) and hit a top speed of 320 km/h (199 mph). The Carlsson performance kit for the S 600 is available for 4199,00 Euro excluding VAT. Further performance increases for six-, eight- and twelve-cylinder as well as diesel engines are also available.

The in-house saddlery individually refines the interior upon customer’s request. The basic package for 5290 Euro excluding VAT comprises exclusive leather upholstery for the front and rear seats as well as all headrests and inner door panels. The color of the leather and stitching can be chosen without extra charge by the customer. Further options include the embossing of the Carlsson logo in the headrests, a blue illuminated Carlsson signature on the door sills as well as new aluminum pedals and a footrest. The dashboard, steering wheel and the centre arm rest can also be covered in finest leather.
