SLK 55 AMG F1 safety car exhaust Modification

Does anyone know how to perform the R171 SLK55 F1 safety car exhaust modification. Can the parts be ordered from AMG?

Any information would be great!

Thanks

As the F1 car went on to become the SLK Black, the parts would be available through Mercedes Parts at any dealer.

However, I think the F1 car did not have any rear silencer boxes, but not sure if Mercedes would not have put something in for the Black albeit an excuse for a silencer to keep some of the noise down. The only other mod they would have done is a cross piece which is available off the shelf.

You might be better off getting an exhaust specialist to make up a system for you.

Here you are - Quicksilver claim to make one based on the F1 car - it might be available in CKD form for you to install locally. Worth asking them:

I work for QuickSilver and can confirm our pattern is that of the F1 Safety Car. It has a MB part number on it but if you quote it to MB, it doesn't exist (!)..

I have this system and can vouch for its vigorous note.
