The Mercedes-Benz R-Class is as spectacular as it is versatile. Combining room for six adults, four-wheel drive and luxury saloon comfort the R-Class represents a niche of its very own. Now KLEEMANN adds another fundamental dimension to this special vehicles set of skills: Performance.

The well known and highly efficient KLEEMANN Kompressor system boosts power output of the R500 to 455 Hp and 585 Nm of torque. A Kompressor system for the 3.5 litre V6 of the R350 is undergoing its final test schedules and is expected to be available by the end of 2006.

Diesel power
For the strong V6 Diesel engine fitted in the R320 CDI KLEEMANN offers an affordable yet efficient performance upgrade. The KD-Box. This unit is easily fitted to the engine and increases power output by up to 35 Hp and 80 Nm.

Safety and dynamics
As always KLEEMANN offers light alloy wheels in sizes raging from 18 - 20" which might be a necessity if you wish to fit KLEEMANN´S high performance KB8 brake system featuring 380 mm cross drilled, vented discs and 8 piston monoblock callipers.

To further refine the driving dynamics of the vehicle AirMatic equipped cars can be fitted with the KLEEMANN EBL (Electronic Body Lowering module) lowering the cars centre of gravity with 30 mm.
