VATH Mercedes SLS Roadster


As if the Mercedes SLS Roadster wasn’t bonkers enough, German tuner VATH went ahead and boosted its power to more than 700 horsepower.

For this car a bundle of measures has been taken with this V63 SUPERCHARGED, i.e. installation of compressor kits and an air box, individual sharp tuning of the engine electronics and the increase of the Vmax. That result in 702 or 850 Nm of torque for a 3.6 seconds  0 to 100 km/h sprint time and a Vmax of 330 km/h. To cope the tuner has also provided enlarged gear box oil cooler, and optimized the high performance brake system with brake discs of 405-mm size.

It really is a crazy car, but also quite wonderful. And the fact that it’s a droptop makes the whole thing much more interesting.

An absolute novelty is the set of threaded sportsprings complete suspension for SLS vehicles with AMG RIDE CONTROL developed by VÄTH company.

Certainly, the shock absorbers are adjustable in terms of height and hardness (and the height adjuster is installed) what leads to the safe and comfortable handling on the roads and race tracks.

The sporty steering wheel with the leather/leather interior version is also possible with carbon or finewood. Striking, as in the direct line of sight, the speedometer shows up to 400 km/h.
