The Mercedes Benz GL Class 420 CDI is turned into a timeless piece of blissful machinery…and this is with the help of one fine car tuner! Christened as the GL 42 Sport Black, this will surely give a new insight of what SUV’s can be turned into if given to the right hands. Kicherer is known worldwide for their creations and this German tuner will again mark their spot in the auto industry with the tuned Merc.
This spruced up SUV stands on a massive 22 inch Vogue rims covered with 295/35R22 tires. They gave a matte black foil finish for its exterior and even the grille and the Mercedes Benz badges were all done in black. This is a sinister looking beast and drooling in all aspect.
The tuning kit also involves honing the Airmatic Suspension to give better performance and features a sport exhaust system with dual pipes placed on each corner of its rear bumper. The electronic gas pedal was also made to be more responsive and this is with the help of the Kicherer Power Converter.
The V8 4.2 liter CDI diesel engine now roars to 375 bhp with a staggering 664 lb ft of torque. This is a respectable jump from the stock output of 302 bhp with 516 lb ft of torque.
