Carlsson CLS
The Carlsson RS front-spoiler lip harmoniously continues the lines of the CLS 55 AMG and thanks to a reduction in lift, the driver profits from improved handling.
It lets the saloon car cover the standing start to 100 km/h in just 4.5 seconds, to reach the electronic limiter's top speed of 320 km/h..
