FAB Design Takes SLS AMG to Next Level

The Swiss tuner FAB Design has taken on the Mercedes SLS AMG and made it a little more individual and even more dynamically accentuated.

Especially the aerodynamics enjoyed a high-class final touch. To do this the developers from Hunzenschwil, Switzerland developed and mounted a sporty front skirt with vertically positioned daylight running lights, which inconspicuously emphasize the larger air-intakes. The sides of the front design skirt flow in an uninterrupted stream into the considerably widened wings that like muscles span the shapely forged wheels. Taking in the powerful and sinewy forms along the way the perfectly designed sills frame the sporty sidelines of the SLS before smoothly ending in the equally widened wheel housings of the winged-door vehicle.

The transition to the rear apron, which has been honed to fit function and design, is equally smooth. It not only has perfect mold vents but also a diffuser that supports the extendable rear spoiler in combating lift at high speeds. Each optically and acoustically framed by two round, classic endpipes. The air scoop mounted on the roof not only serves to target the direction of the airstream, it is also a skilful new interpretation of the double air outlets on the original Gullwing Mercedes - and lends the vehicle a little more pathos.

Another highlight on the retro sports car are the Evolution wheels. The classic hole design, the concave form and the fine intermediate spokes harmonize perfectly with the equally classic sports car silhouette of the FAB SLS.
