Most exciting AMG ever?

Nope.

1. No metal/magic roof.
2. Have they not seen what's happening in Florida?
Do they not peruse this prestigious site?

55 AMG Kompressor (M113K)
Supercharger - ECU Tune - set of stainless steel tubular exhaust headers and downpipes. Up to 525 HP and 680 Nm (504 lb-ft) of torque.

It will look similar to this



From my guy:

$10k for the parts, probably $3000-4000 to install. So all in, worse case scenario, about $14,000.
Let me know, would love to put one on there for you. That car is an absolute riot with a blower. Unlike anything else out there.

ECU tune will be a reflash for the proper KLEEMANN supercharger tune.

I warranty my work as long as you have the car.

It’s a huge install. 30-40 hours. There is a ton of custom fabrication. Kleemann builds one supercharger ‘kit’ for that motor…..they don’t care about the chassis it goes in….so we make all of our own brackets, mounts, etc. It’s incredibly time consuming. You can figure on a FULL week to install.
I quoted you out $100 per hour with 40 being the max. We’ve done a ton of these things and they always end up right around 35 hours. 4.5 days.

Very very clean installs on these cars. We pride ourselves on how clean we do them. The guys at KLEEMANN were blown away when they saw one of our cars. Made me wonder why their builds didn't look like ours…

Next step is we get a firm date from KLEEMANN and then we can proceed.

My guy has done a few SLK Superchargers before



When it happens, I will make a new thread similar to the one we are in now

The only exciting thing about the new coupe is the look on SWMBOs face when I tell her how much I want to spend on it. That always gets my "fight or flight" response going.
