Well it seems that Carlsson is bored with just tuning different Mercedes models and decided to make their own car! Not from the scratch, but by facelifting the current SL-Class.

So they took an SL and gave it a new front-end, bonnet, side panels and a whole new rear compartment. Now pretty it might be not, but it’s exclusive as hell because they will only make 25 examples. Mind you, they ask as near as makes no difference 500,000 Euros for this!

But hey for that you also get a modified version of SL600, on which this car is based, V12 engine which churns out 735 hp and 1320 Nm of torque.

Of course to top it from ripping the gearbox and differential apart, Carlsson engineers had to deliberately limit the torque to ONLY 1150 Nm. Still more than 99 percent of other production cars in the whole world!

So despite of its hefty 1950 kg weight, the C25 Super GT is capable of doing 0 to 100 k/h acceleration in just 3.7 seconds and reach a maz speed of 345 km/h. While the C-tronic suspension, 20-inch wheels covered with high performance tires and its massive brakes are hard at work to keep it under control.
