Vath adds supercharger to Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster

The Bravarian tuners over at Vath have assembled a new kit for the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster that concentrates on power upgrades.

Rolling off the assembly line with a 6.2-liter V8 engine, the SLS AMG roadster makes 563 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque. Vath has taken this up to 691 hp and 627 lb-ft of torque with a supercharger kit, upgraded ECU, sports air filter, stainless steel exhaust system and some additional adjustments In the end, Vath shaves off 0.2 seconds from the roadster’s 0-62 mph time, and adds 8 mph to its top speed. The model now goes from 0-62mph in just 3.6 seconds with a top speed of 205 mph.

Vath also made some improvements to the AMG Ride Control system, sports springs and added a high performance braking system.

On the outside, a new boot spoiler, front apron and side skirts were added made of carbon fiber parts, and the whole packages rests on a set of 20-inch alloy wheels wrapped in a set of 265/30-20 sized rubber up front and 315/25-20 at the rear. Topping off the package are interior accents in carbon fiber.

The kit is available in Germany for $104,400.
