The Last Edition Of Mercedes-Benz CGL 45 Royal By Carlsson Is For The Chinese Market


In order to woo the upper rich Chinese customers, luxury car manufacturers are taking no pains in order to customize special edition cars, which can be seen from the recent Beijing Auto Show where SUV’s, special edition and flashy cars were on display and as per the demand of special edition and bespoke cars in one of the world’s largest auto market, it was quite natural that the country would start having its own tuners that would create cars according to the specific needs of Chinese buyers. Now, a renowned German car refurbishing specialist in Mercedes-Benz cars, Carlsson has unveiled their latest models namely the 2012 Mercedes-Benz CGL 45 Royal Last Edition, which will only be available in China. The refurbishing company is also known for delivering one of the most exotic version of Mercedes along the lines of the arson Mercedes SL65 AMG C25 Royale.

This new upgrade kit meant for the German crossover will only be exclusively available in China, because a China-based car dealer known by the name of Zhongsheng Group Holdings Ltd has reportedly acquired 70% stake in Carlsson. And, it can be expected that it’ll only be a matter of time before we’ll report more about the China-exclusive tuning programs coming out of the German tuning firm.

As per the Carlsson’s CGL 45 program for the Mercedes-Benz’s full-size crossover SUV, the GL-Class, the 45 Royale Last Edition can accommodate up to 7 people. It also sports various components crafted out of finest-quality PUR-Rim plastic such as wider wheel arches and an exclusively new chrome radiator grille with mesh inserts. There is also an impressive lighting set-up that features LED daytime running lights on the front spoiler and a couple of double light units.

Beneath the hood of this full-size crossover SUV, the tuner gave a larger engine tuning to the CGL45 Royal Last Edition’s 3.0-liter V6 diesel engine thereby increasing the car’s output from 265hp to 310 hp. While, the 5.5 liter V8 model gets a new output of 435 horsepower.
