Our review's lines on a test of two tuned Mercedes SLs in

the mag AutoBild Test&Tuning were not so positive, since

both luxury convertibles missed the sprint rates claimed by

their creators. One amongst them was the SL by A_R_T. It

took a full second more than promised to turn the hand to

the speedo's 100kmh mark.

But we also concluded by saying: 'After that test, the

established Merc tuners will surly fear the underdogs a

little less. But attention: this was neither the last attack nor

the last test'. And so we had, of course, our eyes kept on

the establishment's followers. In the case of the

Nuremberg-based Benz tuner A_R_T, we noticed remark-

able newnesses in terms of styling.
