CLS C218 gets Prior Design PD550 Black Edition Body Kit

Since a rather harsh winter is expected on the Old Continent, the Germans from Prior Design have been pretty busy lately developing a new snow-plowing kit for the Mercedes-Benz CLS C218.

Obviously, all of the above - apart from the harsh European winter, apparently – is just a bad joke, as the PD550 Black Edition aerodynamic kit from Prior Design looks better suited to plow through air on a racing track than through a snowy road.

Designed specifically for the C218 generation of the Mercedes-Benz CLS, in our opinion the only model suited to receive such an aggressive body kit would be the CLS 63 AMG. Unfortunately, checking out the size of the brakes on the model depicted in the adjacent photos we'd say this is a V6 CLS that's trying to look faster than an AMG, but hey, to each his own.

The aero kit consists of front and rear bumpers, side skirts, wide front fenders, an engine hood add-on and a trunk lid spoiler. You can buy the pieces individually but if you want the entire package you'll have to shell out no less than EUR7347.
