There’s something truly hyped up whence the likes of them upper echelon automobiles are given a fair sprinkling of aesthetical upgrades that makes them all the more menacing, all the more aggressive, and all the more interesting to the collective tuning bunch, that’d be us, as in you and me. We’d be all rent asunder with excitement, getting well nigh on the verge of some form of ‘gasms’ not unlike the most pertinent of all such ‘occurrence’ as per the above telling term.
Now with such overwhelming all-encompassing surreal state of being, there’s little else to speak off except to get right on it, and sure enough that’s exactly what we’re going to be doing alright? In any case, the Mercedes Benz AMG SL55 is one of those cars that resides at a special place in most guys hearts. It belonged to that ‘when I grow up I want to be a…’ or a ‘one fine freakin day I’m gonna own you, you sona…’ or something like that. It does tend to drive even the most gentlemanly of men to pretty much lose themselves, especially when one with such widened fenders like this specimen from Exotic Mods.
The sumptuously wide bodied AMG SL55, requires a whole new avenue to be dwell upon. As in those ominous three lettered insignia so famously known the world over. Of course there’d be no formal introduction required on AMG. They are the purveyor nay the pioneers of go-faster products for all things Mercs, and then some (queue Pagani and the Lagonda from Aston Martin). Of course a couple of seconds worth of your time perusing the net via that fancy hand-held device of yours would reveal more so feel free to do so at your own time alright?
Inasmuch admiration as I may have for Hans Werner Aufrecht and Erhard Melcher (the two founders duh) they must be in their late seventies or even eighties by now wouldn’t they? Or they might not even be around anymore. But sure enough, one look at the global legacy that they have perpetrated (inadvertently you might say) they would have quite a laugh on their own wouldn’t they? But still, it goes without saying that the current crop of AMG cars has come a long way since the days of that uber cool old school SEL 300 6.3 that heralded the arrival of AMG more than half a century ago.
Well anyway enough with the nostalgic trip down somebody’s memory transplant alright? We’ll stick to the here and now thank you very much. And there’s nowhere more ‘here and now’ than the exotically modified Mercedes AMG SL55 right here. It has an extended list of Exotic Mods goodies that covers every aspect of the SL55’s appeal in both performance and style.
On the performance side you have the straight forward upgrades via a custom ECU remap and custom cat-back exhaust system both as mentioned earlier from Exotic Mods. Thereafter you have a whole package of Exotic Mods exterior components: Exotic Mods Facelift Style Side Mirrors, Exotic Mods PPG Crystal White Paint, Exotic Mods SL65 Black Series Front Hood, Exotic Mods SL65 Black Series Widebody Conversion, Exotic Mods SL65 Black Series Boot Spoiler, Exotic Mods SL65 Black Series Facelift Conversion (Headlights & Grille), Detailien Paint Glass Coating, and finally 3M Vehicle Protection System’s Smash Proof Tints.
Completing the stylized reworking of the Merc coupe is the Modulare B18 20 inch custom forged wheels, 10 inch wide up front and 13 inch at the rear. These are shod with Nitto Invo tyres – 285/30/20 up front and 345/25/20 rear.
Jump inside and you’d be met with the SL’s trademark luxury slash sporty cabin with an exotic twist – an array of custom Nappa leather covering the steering, the seats, door panels and instrument hood.
All in all a tastefully done mod job only from Exotic Mods.
