    Carlsson Builds 600HP Twin-Turbo 2012 Mercedes Benz CLS

    The guys over at Carlsson decided that they didn’t want to wait for the AMG CLS63 to come out so instead they built their own version set to debut at the Geneva Motor Show Monday. What you see here is Carlsson’s full tuning program for the 2012 CLS that includes a twin-turbo treatment that boosts output to 600hp! They don’t go into too much detail when it comes to how they pulled that off but they do say they start with the same engine block that is found in the AMG CLS63 so that’s a big clue.

    The exterior of the car received an aero treatment that I think looks pretty sharp, albeit subtle. Carlsson also dropped the car on their patented “C-Tronic” suspension system which analyzes the road surface every 150 milliseconds and will adjust the dampening accordingly.

    Carlsson says sales of this tuning program will start in April of this year but there was no word if it will be available stateside. Although I would be willing to guess that if you can find the proper channels you can get this program here.

    Looks pretty clean, not too overdone from this view. Probably just an ecu tune for the extra power.

    The Carlsson kit is pretty nice. Yep, most likely just a tune.
