FAB Design Mercedes SLS AMG “Jetstream” Roadster
True to the company‘s philosophy of taking a noble work‘s vehicle and making it a little more individual, an even more dynamically accentuated version of the roadster was crea-ted. Especially the aerodynamics enjoyed a high-class final touch.
To do this the developers from Hunzenschwil developed and mounted a sporty front skirt with vertically positioned daylight running lights, which inconspicuously emphasize the lar-ger 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 roadster.
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.
Another highlight on the retrosportscar are the above-mentioned 3-part, 10 and 12 inch Evolution complete wheels.
The classic hole design, the concave form and the fine inter-mediate spokes harmonize perfectly with the equally classic sportscar silhouette of the FAB SLS. To this is added ei-ther a compatible sports suspension set, which lives up to the requirements or both com-fort and sportiness, or if so desired the vehicle can be fitted with a High Performance Kit from Koni, which is based on the technology of the SLS GT3 racing car. At the rear of the vehicle a FAB stainless steel sports exhaust with four round endpipes lets the exhaust fumes sonorously free. An integrated valve control gives the driver – depending on the occasion – the possibility of choosing between a sonorous and a discrete sound. The FAB developers have also tightened up the performance and thus achieved an every day per-formance of 615 PS – in place of the standard 571 PS. In addition the engine‘s torque has increased to a full 690 Nm that already hits in at 4,600 rpm.
Thus equipped the FAB SLS Jetstream needs only 3.7 seconds ‚to fly‘ to 100 km/h and after just 11 seconds it has left the 200 mark behind. Only at 325 km/h does the joy of accelera-tion come to an end – but certainly not the emotions of the car occupants, who can revel in comfort and luxury at any speed. For this FAB Design can offer everything the heart de-sires; the most unusual mix of materials in every conceivable colour combination.
