Here’s a gorgeous new package for the Mercedes-Benz SL500 roadster (the R230 version), courtesy of Famous Parts. This stunning wide body kit bestows the Merc with a bit of freshness.
The tuner has previously come up with a nice 2009 CL63 AMG-based project, yet this one looks a lot cooler. This particular package includes a wide body kit from Prior Design, which in turn comprises rear and front bumpers, front mudguards, rear side wall widening, new hood and side sills. The tuner has also done some extensive modifications to the headlights and exterior mirrors.
The exterior is nicely dressed in a white pearl metallic paint coat. Under the car, Famous Parts has fitted an electronic lowering module and a set of Type III FPX wheels measuring 20 inches in diameter, shod in Continental Sport Contact tires. The package is ultimately completed with a new rear section, in the exhaust system, borrowed from the SL 63 AMG.
Much of our curiosity has gone into the price of this project, which wasn’t unfortunately disclosed so far. Nor anything regarding the availability of the tuning kit.
