There are several body kit options on the market for the R230 Mercedes-Benz SL. Very few from Japan though and likely for a good reason as the Japanese tend to overdo their body kits. This kit by Abflug tends to go down that way overdone route. These pictures are just renderings but the real thing will be revealed next month at the Tokyo Auto Salon. This "Platinum" kit consists of a new front bumper, fenders, side skirts, hood, and rear diffuser.

The whole look of the car is transformed but not really in a classy or good way. This just makes it look cheap. Frankly, it looks like your typical riced out body kit. Not flattering for a German car but BenzBoost will reserve judgement until the final product is shown.
