LARTE DESIGN MAKES U.S. INTRODUCTION WITH PREMIUM PERFORMANCE TUNING KIT FOR MERCEDES

European-Based Luxury Tuning Company Creates Bespoke Mercedes GL Dubbed "Black Crystal"

Moscow, Russia (June 9, 2014) -- Larte Design, a European luxury tuning company specializing in the personalization of premium SUVs, is making its first foray into the U.S. market with the introduction of a specially-tuned performance package for the 2014 Mercedes-Benz GL. The company is introducing its new package with "Black Crystal," a uniquely customized GL that serves as a perfect example of Larte's high design and advanced performance.

"Black Crystal" comes equipped with an aggressive body kit, attractive alloy wheels and a sonorous exhaust system. The Larte Design front bumper features crystalline accents, aggressive geometry and front guard that stretches over almost the entire height of the car. The front end also features striking LED daytime running lights, by German supplier Nolden, crystal shaped edges, exposed carbon-fiber inserts and a number of air inlets.

To further enhance the GL's muscular shape are Larte Design crafted front and rear end fender flares and side skirts. The sport design is further enhanced by elements such as a central Formula 1-type brake light. "Black Crystal" also sits on forged, alloy wheels in 11x22-inch, completing the aggressive look of the custom GL.

The custom SUV also comes equipped with a unique four-pipe stainless steel exhaust system designed by renowned exhaust manufacturer, Remus. The exhaust's complex shape steel on the inside and carbon on the outside echoes the high-quality craftsmanship that goes into each component of Larte's body kits. To make "Black Crystal" go fast, Wetterauer tuning company upgraded the V6 diesel engine, thanks to a chip, to 290 hp and 508 lb-ft of torque (for the European spec GL), compared to the stock GL coming in at 258 hp and 457 lb-ft of torque.

"Black Crystal" is the latest in a long lineup of offerings from Larte Design. The luxury tuning manufacturer also offers tuning kits geared to enhance other premium SUVs including the Infiniti QX60, QX70, and QX80 and the Range Rover Evoque. Each kit meets the highest technical standards and includes components from renowned manufacturers. Kits also come with attractively and aggressively designed alloy wheels that are equipped with high-end tires from technical partner Michelin.
