Mercedes Kleeman CLS 50K S8In 2005 Kleeman produced the CLS 50K S8. It is designed flawlessly and offers smooth lines, leaving off the aggressive look best left to the edgier supercars. This four-door coupe is full of luxury and was designed for a small family or someone who is looking to ride to work in style.

It is powered by a V8 Kompressor engine, which generates an output of 595 bhp and 568 lb-ft of torque. The power of the V8 engine is mainly due to the efficiency of the Kleemann Kompressor system. In addition the ECU of the CLS engine is reprogrammed and application specific Super Sport camshafts are fitted. To further improve the engines gas flow the 5.0 litre V8 is mounted with tubular headers in stainless steel and a complete dual stainless steel exhaust system utilizing four steel racing catalysts. As the finishing touch to it all, the Kleemann CLS 50K S8 exhaust system comes with two Trapezoid-shaped rear mufflers.

Driving dynamics are enhanced by a Kleemann developed electronic body lowering module (EBL) for the standard AIRMATIC DC suspension. The EBL lowers the ride height by up to 1.4 inches. In addition to adding a stunning look to the car the lowered ride height and the firmer suspension provided by the Kleemann Suspension Tuning Module improves cornering agility by reducing body roll. For the CLS 350 with conventional springs and dampers Kleemann provides a Speed Sensitive sports suspension with lower springs and progressive dampers.

Another focal point of refining the Kleemann CLS 50K S8 is the interior. Kleemann offers an extensive programme ranging from full leather to a combined leather/alcantara interior. The Kleemann programme also includes a wide selection of individual accessories such as illuminated entrance panels with Kleemann logo, and an ergonomic Kleemann sports steering wheel with a choice of leather, leather/wood or leather/carbon trim. The finishing touch to the interior is genuine wooden or carbon inlays on the dashboard, centre console and door covers which creates a sporty yet comfortable and exclusive feeling.
