KLEEMANN burnout

Well....
Donnie and I got rowdy today at MB Autowerks.
We did a monster burnout in our driveway with our new CLK55 KLEEMANN demo car.

The best part is that we caught it on video!

Click on the MB Autowerks/KLEEMANN banner at the top of this page to see it.

If you have been considering a KLEEMANN upgrade, you owe it to yourself to take a ride in this car. It's better than Disney World!

Funny you should mention that...
We're working on something along those lines right now.
Sort of a "convertible" exhaust.

burnout

yup.....takes practice though.....just gotta lightly hold the front wheels in one place long enough for the rear tires to break loose..
we have burn out contests here at the local drag strip. Most of the cars are automatics. GO TILL YOU BLOW (the tire we hope!)

Those are awesome transformations that you have done to the cars. Have you ever done an SLK 32 AMG? Any other SLKs?

We don't currently have anything for the SLK32 AMG but, we should have something soon. It will be a boost kit consisting of a couple of pulleys.

To do the burnout, you have to turn off ESP and you need the steering wheel to be straight. If the car starts to yaw to one side or the other, the ESP will stop the fun... Keep it straight and all will be well.
