Kleemann GTK: Mercedes SLK 55 AMG Based Concept

Danish car tuner Kleemann, known for its accessory and tuning programs for Mercedes-Benz cars, revealed details on its first exclusive sportscar today, the GTK concept. Designed by Christian Brandt, the GTK is based on the Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG.

Apart from its unique styling, the GTK features the normally aspirated SLK 55 AMG V8 engine fitted with a complete KLEEMANN Kompressor system kit, delivering 540 HP and 700 Nm or 516-lb/ft of torque. Power is transferred to the road by a 7-speed automatic gearbox, a KLEEMANN limited slip differential and ultra low profile tires on 20-inch alloy rims designed specifically for the GTK. -Continued after the jump

Kleemann supports that their Danish treat can go from 0 to100 km/h (62 mph) in only 3,7 seconds and it can acceleration right up to the electronically limited top speed of 300 km/h – 187 mph. The GTK promises to offer the same excitement when it comes to stopping thanks to the high performance KLEEMANN brake system featuring 380 mm. vented discs with 8 piston fixed aluminium callipers front and 345 mm. vented discs with 4 piston fixed aluminium callipers rear.

According to Danish tuner, while it is not currently planning mass production of the GTK, the concept will serve as an inspiration for forthcoming Mercedes-Benz projects as all new models will feature shapes and details derived from the concept.
