The German tuning house Carlsson has just revealed a new performance package for the very sporty 2010 Mercedes Benz E-Class Coupe at last weeks Frankfurt Motor Show. The new Carlsson CK50 is based on the two door E 550 and starts off with an increase in power that brings the 5,5-litre V8 power plant’s maximum output to 324 kW and 600 N.m of torque, up from the factory rated 284 kW.
The Carlsson CK50 features an RS style front lip spoiler made from lightweight carbon fibre that adds a sense of sport to the new midsize Mercedes coupe, as well as an oversized Carlsson emblem in the middle of the grill to let onlookers know this is no ordinary E-Class coupe. Out back the German tuners have added a stainless steel exhaust system complete with a pair of trapezoidal tips, to give the tuned 2010 E-Class coupe the sporty appearance it warrants, as well as an aggressive exhaust note to match.
The Carlsson CK50 rides on a set of Carlsson’s signature two tone 1/5 Revo wheels, measuring 20-inches in diameter with a set of sport tuned coil overs underneath that allow the owner to no only get the desired stance from their two door E Class, but also adjust it to optimise the sport coupe’s handling. The interior of the Carlsson CK50 is made up of a variety of high class suede and aluminum accents on the gear shifter and pedals. The German tuners have successfully added just the right amount of attitude and style to the new E coupe without taking away from the luxury car’s prominence.
