The 2012 Mercedes SLK R172 gets a tuning kit by Vath that adds quiet styling details and noticeable power upgrades.
Performance packages are available for each variant, starting with the SLK 200 CGI, which kicks out 207-hp at 229 lb-ft of torque. The SLK 250 CGI is upgraded to 241-hp at 265 lb-ft of torque, while the SLK 350 is bumped up to 325-hp at 288 lb-ft of torque with a modified ECU.
Vath gives the SLK kit high-performance brakes, a stainless steel sports exhaust system, and a limited slip differential.

On the outside, the car was dropped all the way around, and a front spoiler, rear diffuser, and 20-inch alloy wheels were added.
Interior mods are just as subtle as the exterior, with aluminum pedals, carbon fiber accents, and velour floor mats. The speedometer was also adjusted to reflect the car’s new top speed of 205 mph, a nice touch.
