The New Aerodynamic Body Kit for the Mercedes-Benz ML Model Range

Kleemann is to debut its package for the new ML range at the 2005 Essen Motor Show. Based on the Mercedes-Benz ML 500, Kleemann has created an utterly desirable car representing the best of design and technology for the big SUV market.

The ML 50K S8 features a new aero dynamic enhancement kit developed by the Kleemann design department. The aero component kit is designed with attention to detail and consists of a deep front spoiler and a rear spoiler with a built in diffuser panel as seen on other Kleemann models. The rear diffuser panel makes provision for the Kleemann tail pipes and complements a rear spoiler mounted on the roof. Furthermore the ML50K S8 comes with new side skirts and wheel arch flares for a more sporty appearance and strong road presence. The complete exterior package including 20 inch TM-5 wheel ensures a bold, muscular look and fits all non-AMG M-Class vehicles.

An Electronic Body Lowering Module (EBL) and the Kleemann Suspension Tuning firms up the Air Matic suspension and ensure a lower centre of gravity for reduced body roll and better turning stability.

The redesigned exterior is perfectly matched by a new sporty yet luxurious interior. The upholstery on seats and doors is made from high quality leather and with sections of Alcantara. Dash board and panels inside are made from carbon fiber to finish the sporty look and feel. Carbon fiber inlays are also to be found on the ergonomic shaped steering wheel.

More Power

Like the CLS 50K S8 and E50KCC presented earlier this year, the ML50K S8 is powered by the well known 5.0 liter V8 in full Kleemann trim. Mounted with the Kleemann Kompressor system, Super Sport Camshafts, a reprogrammed ECU and stainless steel exhaust headers the engines power out put is increased to 595 bhp as the torque curve peaks at 568 lb-ft. A complete stainless steel dual exhaust system allows the Kompressor engine to breath freely and takes the exhaust note to another level. The powerful engine makes the car able to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 5,3 seconds and the top speed is 168 mph (270 km/h).

For increased performance in the Diesel-powered ML models, Kleemann offers the efficient KD-BOX or a reprogramming of the ECU.

For the safety aspect Kleemann has added more stopping power to the heavy car. The massive brake discs are vented and cross drilled and will not fade even under extreme strain. All Kleemann brake systems come with separate left and right discs.
