Prior Design specializes in creating awesome Mercedes-Benz body kits.
has created body kits for Jaguar, Mini, Porsche and many others. However, it's the company's work with Mercedes-Benz that deserves the most attention. PD has successfully been able to make a variety of Benzes even better looking than when they first came off the production line. In addition to being eye-catching, these kits are also aerodynamic. Continue ahead to check out a few of Prior Design's cooler kits.
Prior Design created this sexy and sleek styling kit for the Mercedes CL. The aerodynamic body kit consists of a new front bumper, front lip spoiler, side skirts, rear bumper and diffuser, rear widenings, a new front hood and mesh grilles. The kit sells for $16,000 and all the parts are made out of Dura-Flex FRP (Fiber Reinforced Plastic).
Prior Design created a Black Edition body kit to fit a variety of SLs. The kit can fit 2003-2011SL500, SL55, SL65, SL600 and SL63 AMG models. The kit is certainly beautiful and looks especially fetching in red. Sorry, black and silver.
Prior Design took the odd step of adding a mohawk to its CL Black Edition body kit. The roof scoop, along with bigger front and rear bumpers, a new hood, side skirts, Black Series diffuser and tailpipes and 20-inch Gunmetal Grey alloys come standard. Nice try with regards to trying to make car mohawks a thing, Prior Design.
You might notice that the Mercedes-Benz R230 SL featured here looks as if it has put on a few pounds. Prior Design's body kit for the roadster includes front and rear fenders that are four inches wider to accommodate wider tires. The Satin Metallic Grey kit also includes a new hood, front and rear bumpers, side skirts, a rear diffuser, rear fender flares and trunk spoiler. Noticeably absent is a rooftop mohawk.
Prior Design's body kit for the Mercedes-Benz SL RS230 FL features a new front and rear bumper, front hood, front fenders, side skirts, rear trunk spoiler, rear diffuser and front lip spoiler. Prior Design further sweetened the pot with a set of 20-inch wheels and a replacement washer tank.
