California based tuning company, Renown Auto Style, has unveiled its Sidewinder program built specifically for the R230, the previous generation Mercedes-Benz SL-Class.
The Renown aero package, when installed on the R230 SL, results in a Roadster that is a full ten inches wider than the Mercedes SL 65 AMG Black Series and an inch wider than the massive Lamborghini Murcielago. The kit consists of a front bumper, hood, front fenders, side skirts, full rear quarter panels, trunk spats, rear bumper with diffuser and wheel well liners. The body parts are made using a vacuum bagged FRP cloth made with an epoxy resin system which is an aerospace-borrowed fabrication process.
A choice of wheels will also be on offer, including the company’s 20-inch RX10-C rims in a 10.5 and 13-inch widths.
There will be an optional upgrade including genuine Mercedes fog lights with a carbon fibre light bar, along with a front lip, side skirt vents, bumper vent, diffuser and rear wing, all constructed from carbon fibre when it goes on sale next year.
