Slander is exactly what Mercedes purists will cry when they see Kamil’s SL55 AMG. But not us, no no no.


Kamil’s SL55 is a car of legend on StanceWorks’ forum. From the 19″ DPE wheels to the stance that’s about as proper as humanly possible, this car strikes an aggressive posture that breaks more necks than an action movie with Steven Seagal. Words are tough to come by when you’re looking at this car because…well…just look at it!


It’s in the FMU fabrication garage for a heat exchanger install, which is currently going on. Before it went up on the rack, though, we made sure to take some pictures that highlight exactly why this car is crazier than most any SL55 you’ll see on the street. The rear silhouette is enough to scare most AMG purists; between the awesome license plate and the visible camber and stretch of the tires, it’s not something you run into every day. Or any day.


When we mentioned that this car’s wheel fitment is ‘as proper as humanly possible,’ we mean it; if this car went any lower, it would scrape on a gentle breeze. Most SL’s never dare to go this low, but if you want something that stands out from the crowd, it had better sit very nicely. And did we mention the tire stretch? 245’s in the rear? This is getting ridiculous.


And one more time, for hilarity’s sake, the license plate. Yeah, it might be talking smack against the manufacturer that we built our company around, but you can’t deny the humor in a good vanity plate.


One last bit of news! If you are holding off on signing up for Motor Union because you need a helmet, worry no more! Instead of searching for a friend with a similar-sized head as your own, Autobahn will be renting helmets on-site for $30. Have a good evening!

    First I would like to thank FMU for this great writeup on the car, I guess the pictures were taken while I was busy looking at all the nice BMWs outside and inside the FMU shop.
    Today’s experience at FMU was one of my best at any tuner shop I have been to, and coming from a background of tuner cars and dealing with a lot of shops in my day that is pretty impressive. I can’t even start to explain how much attention to detail Craig (one of the owners) put in my car, this proved to me that quality work still exists in a tuner shop and FMU is the shop that will be helping me build one of the craziest SL55s in the midwest. OJ (one of the owners) was extremely nice and got involved in the install along with Craig to make the car flow at the coolest temps possible, witnessing this showed me that slapping what I wanted on the car was not the end of the road for these great business owners.

    Thanks to everyone at FMU, you will def. be seeing a lot more of my SL and I in the near future for more work.

    I’m quite sneaky when it comes to taking pictures.

    Also, thanks for the kind words! We’ve seen your car from afar on StanceWorks in the past, and are beyond happy that you were pleased with the work that went into your SL. We can’t wait to see you again.

    Finally, if you don’t mind, I’m going to put your comment in our customer testimonials section. We appreciate those who supply us with feedback, as it helps us to grow into the shop we have envisioned!

    Dean, our customer had this setup on his car so I am not 100% certain what the specs were. I would either try and message the old owner on Stanceworks or contact DPE directly.
