German car tuner Carlsson has teamed with Michelin to equip its ultra high-performance cars with advanced tyre technology in the form of the Pilot Sport 3, Pilot Super Sport and Pilot Sport Cup 2 fitments.
The Carlsson company, founded in 1989, specialises in enhancing the inherent sporting and luxury characteristics of models manufactured by Mercedes-Benz.
Pictured is one such model on which Michelin tyres are fitted – the Carlsson 25 which is based on a Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG. With its 753bhp and 1150Nm-torque, it has a 0 – 100kmh speed of 3.7 seconds. Hurrying from 0 – 200kmh takes a little longer at 10.6 seconds.
