Carlsson Brought All the Goodies You Can Imagine in Geneva

Let’s talk about toys for a moment. They come in all shapes and sizes and every child wants at least one, even when they grow up. So here’s Carlsson at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, providing big boys with the toys they want.

First in line is the Carlsson smart fortwo CK10 (now breathe) project. Although it retains some of the visual and chromatic cues of the regular smart fortwo, the CK10 received a black grille and 17-inch alloy wheels, a roof-edge spoiler and a perky quad exhaust system.

Toy number two comes as the Carlsson Mercedes-Benz C-Class AMG Sport offering redesigned bumpers and big air intakes up front. There’s also an almost subtle bootlid spoiler and the oversized Carlsson logo dominating the engine grille and the tuner says the sedan can be fitted with wheels available in 18, 19 and 20-inch sizes.

Just like with the smart fortwo, Carlsson doesn’t say anything about power upgrades but there’s still one more car left: the C25 Super GT Final Edition. It is based on the SL-Class R230 but 160 kg (353 lb) lighter than the standard model.

You’ll also see new headlights and taillights but take our word for it and listen when we say that technical details are much more interesting. The Final Edition Super GT offers a 450 HP V8 but, and there’s a big but here, you can also get the audacious 753 HP V12 unit.

More power means you need more stopping force so besides the stock braking system, Carlsson is offering the optional carbon-ceramic brake kit. Be advised and move quick: Carlsson says that only 25 Super GT Final Edition models will be made so you’d better write that check before the stock runs out.
