Mercedes-Benz tuning specialists Carlsson have joined forces with inter¬national leather-lifestyle brand Etienne Aigner to develop the Carlsson Aigner CK65 "Eau Rouge". Made in an exclusive small series, the luxury coupé based on the Mercedes-Benz CL produces over 700 bhp and 1,100 Nm after being breathed on by Carlsson. The engine conversion by Carlsson includes a special electronic control unit with special maps for injection and ignition. On the intake side, sports air filters ensure optimum aspiration. On the outlet side, a stainless-steel sports exhaust system with high-performance metal catalytic converters and sports silencers cut back-pressure to a minimum. Another measure to boost engine performance is improved intercooling, which reduces charge-air temperature. Thus, the V12 is always raring to go and the driver can rely on having more than adequate power on hand regardless of the situation. Elegant and with an unsurpassed finish, the Carlsson Aigner CK65 is undoubtedly the most exciting way to travel today. For example, the Carlsson Aigner CK65 "Eau Rouge" is not only very fast - its top speed is electronically regulated for safety reasons to 320 km/h - but also leaves almost every sports car of the world standing with a 0-100 km/h time of just 3.9 seconds. With the Carlsson Aigner CK65 "Eau Rouge", Carlsson has also created a link to the world of motor racing. The car is named after one of the most famous race-track curves, the Eau Rouge in Spa Francorchamps.

two-tone IMO looks best as a black roof black a, b, and sail pillars, down to the very bottom of the trim molding line at the bottom of the windows, so the car looks like a giant convertible. Several Subarus and Evos do it and they look amazing.
