Lorinser has released first pictures of their new kit for Mercedes GLK 280, and it’s quit nice generally, save the girly color! The car’s 230 hp V6 engine has remained intact, after all Lorinser does bodykits, and to be honest they are really god at what they do! GLK’ kit include revised bumpers, new sills and Lorinser designer rims.

That rear diffuser with four tailpipes might seem a bit pointless on an SUV, but GLK being a city Crossover it’s OK for it. More than that Loriser has modifies the suspension and dropped the car, then fitted it with 9×22 inch wheels with 265 Yokohoma tires. So the setup here is more sportscar-like!

Press release

Sportservice Lorinser consciously chose the fiery opal colour for the paintwork of its latest GLK with the 280 V6 petrol engine. With its pervasive radiance the eponymous gem is one of the most coveted and exclusive opals in the world – and it is the only one with which you can uncover the full shine with a facet cut.

As a result the traditional tuner from Winnenden has worked on all the corners and edges, in order to create an exclusive piece of work with incomparable brilliance out of the SUV. As a special optical highlight, the Lorinser front spoiler reflects the radiator grille of the GLK on the horizontal axis and thereby provides an expressive front design. The dark recessed insert is flanked on the left and right by the fog lights.

While precious stones loose volume through polishing, the GLK actually gains substance due to the work of Lorinser. The ribbed side sills in particular provide the 170kW / 231 HP strong SUV with more volume, and thanks to the Lorinser lowering set it hugs the tarmac in a bold sporty manner. The rear view of the four-wheeler is presented as a perfect piece of jewellery and appears to be made of incomparable fire.

The Lorinser rear apron with the pronounced indentations definitely flirts with a degree of martiality – an impression which the dark insert with the sports grille and implied underride guard further intensify. On its flanks it sports a pair of sonorous double-pipes of the Lorinser stainless steel exhaust unit. In connection with the smooth six-cylinder engine under the bonnet the compact SUV thereby also proves to be an acoustic jewel.

Real high-carats are, of course, not missing in the wheel arches: with their special varnish – matt black combined with a polished rim flange – the huge 9 x 22 inch Lorinser RS 9 light-alloy wheels provide real highlights. They are enclosed by the 265 milimetre wide Yokohama tyres. The contrast with the red outer colour of the vehicle is increased by the dark recessed wheel arches. With it the designers have succeeded in creating a real piece of jewelery, which constantly attracts attention to its owner.
