Bodywork finishes in proven quality
Lorinser combines dynamic design with efficient aerodynamics. The result is sensational stylishness with optimised air flow across the vehicle outline. The shapes of the sporty and striking front spoiler bumper blend impeccably with the wider wings.
Together with the rear skirt, rear lip and roof spoiler, the Lorinser body components ensure reduced lift while providing a new, attractive overall appearance. The Lorinser
side skirts form an optical link between the front and rear. The tailor-made body kit is mounted on the serial attachment points, and is available from 8,230.00 Euro (incl.
Optimised performance for stretching the limits and improved driving enjoyment
The range of performance enhancements offered by Lorinser is just as extensive as the selection of Mercedes engines. For example, Sportservice offers optimised control electronics for the CLS 350 CGI, which results in an engine output of 322 HP / 237 kW at 6200 RPM. At the same time the maximum torque increases to 400 Nm between 2900 and 5000 RPM. In this connection, Lorinser has also lifted the limit of 250 km/h, allowing the car to reach an impressive 265 km/h.
Lorinser sport rear silencers that have been aligned to the different performance kits are also available. The range includes four-pipe systems, which ensure a full and powerful sound.
Sporty or elegant
The Lorinser rim range has been created entirely according to the requirements of Mercedes customers. Be it sporty and striking, or elegant and sophisticated – Lorinser offers various wheel designs and sizes. The RS8 is a 19-inch wheel with turbine look. The recommended wheel/tyre combination comprises 8.5Jx19-inch rims with 255/35ZR19 tyres for the front and 9.5Jx19-inch rims with 285/30ZR19 tyres for the rear.
The RS8 tyre is also available in a 20-inch design. In this instance, Lorinser recommends using 9.0Jx20-inch rims with 255/30ZR20 tyres for the front axle and 10.0Jx20-inch rims with 295/25ZR20 tyres for the rear axle.
Another highlight in the range of rims offered is the one-piece Lorinser alloy wheel, known as the RS9. The five slotted, silver triple spokes are distinctive for this modern
style of monoblock design. But the RS9 features a great deal more than a superior look: state-of-the-art manufacturing processes, precision-milled surfaces and the use of special aluminium alloys ensure maximum bearing loads at a low weight. This rim has been specially adapted to the design and technical requirements of the current Mercedes model range, and is available in both 19 and 20-inch dimensions. The recommended wheel/tyre combination for the 20-inch variant is available in 9.0Jx20 inch rims with 255/30ZR20 tyres for the front and 10.0Jx20-inch rims with 295/25ZR20 tyres for the rear.
Highest technical requirements combined with sporty elegance set the RSK6 designer wheel apart from other wheels. The multi-part alloy rim with five spokes and stainless steel connecting bolts boasts a sophisticated look as well as excellent finishes. The rim comes in dimensions of 8.5Jx19 inches and 9.5Jx19 inches as well as in 9,0Jx20 and 10,0Jx20. Lorinser recommends using high-performance tyres from its technology partner, Continental.
The vehicle suspension springs, which lower the centre of gravity of the sport limousine by around 25 millimetres on the front and rear axles, add to its sporty appearance. A car lowering set for vehicles with Airmatic is currently being tested.
Interior with perfected technology
As a supplement to existing interiors available ex-plant, Lorinser offers stylish accessories such as aluminium pedals and door sills with an illuminated Lorinser logo. On request, Lorinser offers everything that makes car aficionados’ hearts beat faster – from a personalised set of foot mats to a complete leather interior – and all with precision craftsmanship.
