That sounds like a plan, congrats.

My interior trim is being done by oCarbon at the moment. Here are some pics in case you were wondering how 215 trim looks in CF

Yea me too I will most likely be going all gloss black exterior this year such as the chrome trim an headlight housing. Prob will only leave wheels the way they are, interior should def be a nice touch.

Thanks, I'll take some pics when the car is back in one piece. I have lots planned for it so might even open a separate thread.

Good luck with the build. Going to be interesting!

Thanks, I guess what I'm waiting for the most is the Turbo Swap and the Intercoolers Love the look on fast car owner's faces when a 4900lbs Mercedes Pulls on them

I loved my CL V12TT when I had it. Absolutely loved the engine, especially after the Speedriven ECU treatment!

Had it for 1/2 year and sold it as wanted a 65. Couldn't find one in good condition so settled on a low miles 55. It is in mint condition with light grey interior, I really like it but I still miss the V12TT. Amazing engine that.

Would have gone with Speedriven big turbo package on a V12 but a bigger blower on 55 will do as well

Any dyno numbers or 1/4mi numbers on the current setup? I've been hearing about the "big turbo" upgrade from speedriven for about 3yrs now. except for soul searchers silver 600, I have not heard of another. Where are all these upgraded turbo v12's hiding???

Sorry, the search button is inop right now. I know you ran the 1/2mile events and did pretty well. What were your traps again?

I will be going the billet turbo route so just new turbos with dif internals for a bit more power, I will not be going big turbo route just yet. Hopefully I can set a date with Marcin for the car to go in for the turbos and intercoolers right after my wedding which will be on June 14th I leave on my Honeymoon on the 18th so between those dates to leave the car and when I get back after 1 week for the car to be finished and ready. Meth, new turbos, and injectors should give me around 120rwhp plus of course the intercoolers. I'm not sure about TQ numbers but should be higher than HP #s. I will be picking up my stuff for paint from Marcin this week, so I will sit down with him and talk about power numbers of the June setup.
I will try to Dyno the car on the current setup which will be

ALL SPEEDRIVEN UPGRADES

ECU TCU TUNE
DOWNPIPES
2.75 exhaust all the way back
METHANOL INJECTION
REAR TANK
IC PUMP
HEAT EXCHANGER
SCORPION INTAKES
100 oct fuel

I will try to get on a dyno sometime end of March or early April

152.7 MPH in the 1/2 mile event running without the METH and SCORPION INTAKES. This year I will try to do the event again in Oct with the better turbos and Intercoolers.

Oh, don't tempt me with this! I already inquired about it with someone at oCarbon too. This might put me over the edge, it is the only other thing I really ever wanted to do to this car that I haven't yet. It really deserves that CF IMHO. Suits the car much better. I remember falling in love with it after seeing it for the 1st time on the 02 CL55F1 safety car. Looks great! Please take a few shots once you install!

W215 V12TT Build by Speedriven, W221 S550 4Matic
Here is a few updated pics of whats going on with interior, just got painted last night today it will be buffed and prepped to be taken back to Speedriven to be installed back, I'm also painting a badgeless grille, side markers, and headlight inside housing. Steering wheel also got painted but I have no pics yet should have more pics tonight or tomorrow of the interior. Debating also doing my wheels in Gloss Black and Painting calipers in a catchy color.
Does anyone know if they have a rebuild kit for the calipers? in case they are powder coated I know the heat will mess up the rubber seals. I could just go the paint route but would rather have something that will last.

I apologize. I have heard of a guy named Kamil that worked there, thought it might be you. Anyway, seems like a great fun project you have going on. Looking great so far.

Thanks, should come along good we will see when it is all finished. I'm debating going gloss black on the wheels and also doing calipers in dark blue or purple. I think car all blacked out the right way should look good.

W215 V12TT Build by Speedriven, W221 S550 4Matic
Here is a few updated pics taken with my phone so kind of bad quality but I will make sure to have better pics done once everything is on the car. I did all chrome in black as well since I did not like the chrome all that much. Once installed it will show if that was the right way to go.

Total of 18 pieces for the inside including the steering wheel

Once car is all blacked out, the only thing that will stay are the new polished tips. The next parts going into paint are the Grille, Inner Headlight Housings, Side Markers.

I was also debating colors for calipers once finished and leaning toward this color


The V12 side badge will also be taken off. I already have rear de-badged along with getting the chrome star redone in gloss black. The car will mostly stay Black/Carbon with a touch of Calipers in that dark blue and tail lights staying OEM.

Picked up the headlight inner housings today and BOY are they hard to take apart. Marcin finally figured it out and the second one went super easy. Off to paint and will post BEFORE and AFTER pics once they are completed.
