Bavarian based tuning house VÄTH Automobiltechnik has presented their package for the new Mercedes SLS AMG Roadster.It centers around an impressive engine upgrade that sees total output increase from the factory 563 hp (420 kW / 571 PS) up to 702 PS (515kW/691hp) while torque has improved from 479 lb-ft (650 Nm) up to 627 lb-ft (850Nm). The figures have been obtained from the 6.3-liter (6,208cc) V8 engine by improving the air flow system as well as modifications to the unit's electronics.The changes see the 0-100kph (0-62mph) time improve slightly to 3.6 seconds and a top speed of 330kph (205mph) is also achievable on the right tires. Additional upgrades include a front spoiler, boot spoiler with spoiler limp and side skirts made from lightweight carbon and is complimented with a set of 20-inch Väth wheels. Inside the cabin, drivers are treated to leather upholstery, a sporty steering wheel and a speedometer that reaches 400kph (even if the car cannot go that fast).
