Väth has unveiled their new tuning program for the 2012 Mercedes SLK (R172). Looking tastefully restrained, the model is outfitted with a front lip spoiler, a rear diffuser, lowering springs and 20-inch alloy wheels. Inside, there's carbon fiber trim, aluminum pedals, velour floor mats and a revised speedometer that tops out at 330 km/h (205 mph). Under the hood, a variety of performance packages are available. The SLK 200 CGI can be tuned to produce 210 PS (154 kW / 207 hp) and 310 Nm (229 lb-ft) of torque, while the SLK 250 CGI can be upgraded to churn out 244 PS (179 kW / 241 hp) and 360 Nm (265 lb-ft) of torque. Lastly, the SLK 350 can be equipped with an optimized ECU which enables the 3.5-liter engine to develop 330 PS (243 kW / 325 hp) and 390 Nm (288 lb-ft) of torque. Should that fail to impress you, Väth also offers high-performance brakes, a limited slip differential and a stainless steel sport exhaust system.
