Lightbulb Euro tuner Larte Design makes US debut with Mercedes GL Black Crystal

Filed under: Aftermarket, SUV, Mercedes-Benz, Diesel, Luxury

You no longer have to go to Alaska to see Russia from your back yard; you can see Russia in your own driveway with the help of Larte Design. The Russian-based tuning firm specializing in SUVs has come to America, and the Mercedes GL-based Black Crystal no doubt revels in the role of first-assault vehicle.

The Black Crystal wears a new front grille and fascia cut up by angular intakes, LED DRLs with "crystal-shaped edges" and carbon fiber inserts. That face runs into a pair of wide fender flares, then a set of custom side skirts, on to a rear end fitted with a complex bumper that sports a Formula-One-style low-mounted brake light and a Remus exhaust in stainless steel and carbon fiber. The Black Crystal gets its stance from 22-inch forged alloy wheels wearing 11-inch-wide Michelins.

In European 3.0-liter V6 diesel guise, power output gets boosted courtesy of Germany's Wetterauer tuning from 258 horsepower and 457 pound-feet of torque to 290 hp and 508 lb-ft; US numbers should come close to that. If you prefer your crystals more stalwart than Swarovski, then enjoy reading the the press release below and perusing the high-res gallery above.Continue reading Euro tuner Larte Design makes US debut with Mercedes GL Black Crystal
