770 hp SLS AMG by Kleemann is a Tire Destroyer

Owning a thundering Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG is probably one of the most satisfying feelings among AMG vehicle ownerships.

Be it the gull-wing doors, the freakishly long engine hood or the unearthly sound of the exhausts, there is an SLS AMG detail to be loved by anyone.

In “standard” form, the legendary M159 AMG V8 delivers 571 hp and 650 Nm (479 lb ft) of torque, which would be enough to obliterate the rear tires in a matter of seconds, but what if you desire something a bit more on the “insane side”?

You can either go for the SLS AMG GT model, which delivers 591 hp, or even the bonkers SLS AMG Black Series version, which develops no less than 631 hp from the normally-aspirated 6.2-liter V8.

If that's still not enough, there are two more choices.

  • Go to a psychiatrist

  • Get a Kleemann supercharger system that ups the power to a massive 770 hp, while the torque figures are increased to a staggering 845 Nm (623 lb ft). This gives the Kleemann SLS AMG a naught to 100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration time of only 3.3 seconds, while the 200 km/h (124 mph) threshold is reached after just 9.3 seconds.

As you can see from the following video, the speedometer needle moves almost as fast a normal rev counter when accelerating from a stop. We sincerely pity those rear tires.
