We received an anonymous tip this morning from a reader directing our attention to a new Lorinser tuning package for the newest iteration of the Mercedes S-Class. Although we weren’t able to find the official press details of the Lorinser package, it appears to follow the company’s traditional customization method. This includes new front and rear aprons, side skirts, a rear spoiler and last but not least, new side vents.
Topping it all off, there’s the requisite Lorinser wheel package, which from Lorinser website appear to be 9×21-inch up front with 265/30 tires and 10×21-inch in back with 295/30 tires. Hit the gallery below to see the Lorinser Mercedes S-Class in all its unfettered glory.
State of the Art – The Lorinser refining program for the Mercedes S-Class
Already since 1981 Sportservice Lorinser, located in Waiblingen/Southern Germany develops and produces exclusive tuning for nearly all Mercedes automobiles. The latest creation is a stylish individualization for the facelifted S-Class. Cultivated shapes are the hallmarks of the unobtrusive exterior design by Lorinser. Nothing seems flashy or artificial. All components perfectly go with the car body design. The company offers noble light-alloy wheels and exquisite accessories for the interior as well as powerful performance increase. This way, a wide range of individualization possibilities has been created to meet the highest requirements.
Already when defining the design, Lorinser perfectly adjusts the individual components of the aerodynamics set. The front with the newly designed spoiler bumper complements with the rear skirt, the roof spoiler and the rear lip in a harmonious way. Discreet side skirts are the visual connection between the front and rear part of the car. The new Lorinser S-Class exactly looks the way it drives: dynamic, agile and full of vitality, combined with the superior elegance of the upper class automobile.
In addition to the dynamic look, Lorinser offers powerful performance increase for the six-, eight- and twelve cylinder engines. By applying the Lorinser Diesel Module to the S 350 CDI, renders an additional output of 22 kW / 30 hp. For the twelve-cylinder top model, the Mercedes-specialist developed the performance kit LV 12 Biturbo. A newly programmed control unit, modified turbo charging and fuel injection as well as an optimized exhaust system with sports exhaust increase the engine performance of the S-Class by approximately 81 kW / 110 hp compared to the original power values. As the limitation of the top speed has been removed, the car now achieves 330 km/h instead of formerly 250 km/h.
A wide-ranging selection of wheel/tire combinations renders perfect grip. One of the highlights of the rim program is the polished 22 inch aluminum wheel type RS9. The modern style of the mono-block design reflects in the five slotted triple spokes. Precisely milled surfaces and modern processing techniques guarantee highest bearing loads at a low weight. The maximum dimension offered by Lorinser is a light-alloy wheel in the dimension 10x22 ET35 with 275/25ZR22 tires at the front axle and 10x22 ET40 with 295/25ZR22 tires at the back axle.
In addition to the serial interior, Lorinser offers exquisite accessories. Chrome-plated pedals and door locking knobs perfectly complement the leather-edged floor mat set with an embroidered Lorinser logo and illuminated doorsills. If desired everything up to entire leather interior can be produced with hand-made precision.
