ALL ABOUT MERCEDES SLK KLEEMANN S8

Listen to the Experts

Supercar.net - 

Based on the new SLK 55 AMG from Mercedes-Benz, the Kleemann SLK S8 is a high-performance car with an power output of 596 hp (444 kw). With its Kleemann Kompressor System, that comes as part of the Stage 8 (S8) engine upgrade, this SLK hits 100 km/h in just 3.7 seconds.

Provinding power to this roadster is a revised version of the Mercedes-Benz 5.5 litre V8. Major modifications include a supercharger, reprogrammed ECU and special ‘super sport’ camshafts are fitted. To further improve the engines gas flow, this V8 is fitted with custom-developed headers in stainless steel and a twin 70 mm stainless steel exhaust system. This exhaust utilizes four racing catalysts and finishes with two Trapezoid-shaped mufflers.

After the full conversion, the car delivers 596 hp (438 kW) and a peak torque of 597 ft lbs (770 Nm) available at just 2000 rpm. This incredible power is routed through a custom-made Kleemann Limited Slip Differential (LSD) which applies a 60 percent lock-up ratio between the rear wheels. This modification is essential for maximum traction and acceleration.

To meet the enormous performance potential of the Kleemann SLK 55K S8, Kleemann has developed exceptional upgrades for the wheels, suspension and brakes.

ALL ABOUT MERCEDES SLK KLEEMANN S8

Listen to the Experts

Evo - Kleemann has been around since the mid-1980s, taking ordinary Mercedes and turning them into something rather different. Its latest product is the SLK55K S8, and what an unbelievable piece of kit it is. The most important fact that you need to know is that this car packs 596bhp - only 31bhp shy of the SLR. The second important fact is that the S8 weighs just under 1500kg - a number close to the 1400kg that was Gordon Murray's target weight for the SLR until Mercedes loaded it with telephones and a jacuzzi. Kleemann starts with a standard SLK55 AMG, powered by the same naturally aspirated 5.5-litre V8 that's fitted to the CLK55 and C55 AMGs. Kleemann then fits its own Swedish-designed Lysholm supercharger to the motor. The twin-screw blower is unique in that it's 'in-unit' with both the intake manifold and a patented air-to- water intercooler. To fit the system it's not necessary to remove the car's engine so it's barely more than a day's work to carry out the conversion to either a new or used SLK55. Fitting the supercharger alone lifts power to 550bhp. The S8 (which denotes the Stage 8 tuning package) also has Kleemann's own stainless steel headers, a quartet of racing cats, and a pair of sports camshafts, which together up the power output to 596bhp at 5800rpm.
