The facelifted Mercedes-Benz SL received a new tuning package from Piecha Design that offers both function and style updates.

Design updates include new spoilers, daytime running lights and a four-tailpipe stainless steel sport exhaust system. In addition, there is also a lowered suspension to reduce the riding height by 30mm and to finish the R230 off, 20-inch alloy wheels.

A power converter and a updated roof module enable the hardtop to be opened or closed at speeds of up to 37 mph.

PIECHA DESIGN – Mercedes-Benz SL R230 Facelift 2008

A true designer car!

Things that are timeless and good just don’t tend to go out of fashion. The Mercedes-Benz designers provided perfect proof of that with the R230-series SL. They were far ahead of their times. By now, the famous roadster is in its eleventh year of production. Its looks have remained nearly identical through the years.

For all SL R230 models starting at the March 2008 facelift, Mercedes specialist PIECHA Design from Rottweil offers a comprehensive refinement package.

PIECHA is the only tuner to develop special build-in housings with LED daytime headlights, incl. fog lamp. They can be delivered ready for installation for the serial bumper and the AMG bumper of the SL63 and SL65. For the serial bumper, a refined, elegant, three-part front spoiler lip was developed as well to harmonise perfectly with the daytime headlights. PIECHA also offers a harmonious rear spoiler lip that is as elegant as it is effective. It provides an additional push down on the rear axle.

Elegant: PIECHA MP1 Monoblock!

The new PIECHA MP1 monoblock wheel rims in the front-polished titanium silky-gloss version are true eye-catchers. They are available at 9.5×20 with 255/30 R20 for the front, and at a gigantic 11×20 with 305/25 R20 for the rear wheel cases of the SL. The beautiful brand-new PIECHA designer wheel set matches all the CLS models of the 219 and 218 series with the same tyres. The car body also does not require any rework. Proper wheel covering, however, requires that the chassis is lowered.

The SL-chassis can be lowered either by classic Piecha lowering springs (-30 mm) for the coil-spring version, or a Piecha-lowering module (-30 mm) for the ABC-chassis.

PIECHA Quadro 4-tube exhaust system!

The stainless steel PIECHA Quadro sports exhaust system installed at the tail is a true designer piece. With its four end tubes in right/left loops, it ensures sportively perfect symmetry and a saturated, low growl.

There are some “must have” products that should be installed in any SL. Among others, they are the legendary PIECHA power converter to ensure clearly improved acceleration, and the comfort vario roof module with many additional comfort functions, among others permitting opening and closing of the roof at a speed of up to 60 km/h.

The result: Good can still be improved! As usual, PIECHA Design presents a plethora of interesting tuning components for the R230-series SL, every single one of them matching the car body lines of the cult roadsters in unparalleled perfection.

Prices for the new PIECHA MP1 monoblock wheel rims:

  • 9.5 x 20″ 420.00 Euro incl. VAT per piece
  • 11.0 x 20″ 520.00 Euro incl. VAT per piece
