Carlsson CS60 Mercedes-Benz S-Class goes up to 199 mph

Carlsson CS60 Mercedes-Benz S-Class

The Mercedes S-Class has just received a new tuner kit by Carlsson. Known as the Carlsson CS60, the model gets some nice exterior, interior and a big performance boost.

Exterior modifications are definitely subtle, yet flattering. There is a new front bumper, side skirts that have been aerodynamically crafted, a trunk-mounted spoiler, and an edited rear apron.

Suspension gets a 33mm drop and sits on high-performance Dunlop tires, which cover a set of 20-inch alloy wheels.

Mercedes S-Class’ 5.5-liter V12 receives an updated ECU for it’s twin turbo power. A stainless steel sport exhaust and high-flow air filter have also been added. Carlsson’s Mercedes ends up with 591-hp at 755 lb-ft of torque (which has been electronically limited). It’s no surprise that the 0-62mph time clocks in at just 4.3 seconds, and hits a top speed of 199mph.

That torque to horsepower ratio is an eyebrow raiser, especially for a car like this. I do and do not want to take this down a quarter mile run.
