Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG tuned by DD Customs

Doubtlessly: Mercedes-Benz scored a perfect hit with the SLS AMG. The sports car developed by the high-performance label AMG is clearly an homage to its legendary 300 SL-ancestor from the late 1950s and the early 1960s.

As a Gran-Turismo-Coupé or a Roadster alike, the SLS reflects its characteristic proportions and design features, such as the slightly forward-inclined grille, the incredibly long motor cowl, the upwards curving winged doors (in the coupé) and the rounded rear with flat tail lights. All of this is presented in a modern interpretation. With the retro/modern style mix, the SLS AMG secures its status as a legend even during its lifetime.


DD Customs has introduced a new styling program for the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG.

The German sports coupe that is in its final days of life and is available as a Final Edition modification has received a stylish body kit. The package includes a new front spoiler, side skirts and a rear bumper with an integrated diffuser. A set of Corniche Sports wheels combined with Michelin Pilot Sport tyres, sized 265/30R20 and 295/25R21 respectively, complete the vision.

Other goodies include a custom coilover suspension system from KW and the KW Hydraulic Lift System, offering a brief increase of the vehicle’s ground clearance by up to 40mm at the push of a button. The tuning company says “this makes speed bumps, uneven roads, construction sites and the entrance for underground parking garages less horrifying”.


DD Customs has left the 6.2-liter V8 unit of the car in serial form, except the exhaust system that has been replaced. The car still has 571 PS (420 kW) at 6800 rpm and 650 Nm (479 lb-ft) of torque at 4750 rpm under the hood and a 7-speed DCT transmission.
