Prior Design develops widebody kit for W221 Mercedes S-Class

The W221 Mercedes-Benz S-Class is a behemoth of a car in standard form. Automotive tuner Prior Design has developed the Black Edition V3 Widebody kit for those who want an even chunkier look.

PRIOR-DESIGN Black Edition V3 Widebody Aero-Kit for MERCEDES S-Class W221

The Black Edition V3 Widebody kit is everything but subtle. The package consists of a new front bumper, a front lip spoiler, a new rear bumper which includes a diffuser, side skirts, new wider front guards, rear widenings, mesh grille inserts, and a sporty boot lip spoiler.

If that’s not enough, they also have a more-aggressive bonnet available that flows in nicely with the wider front guards and overall look of the V3 Widebody kit. The tuner has a range of wheels available, as well as exhaust systems, suspension kits, and a host of options to customise the interior.

Prior Design is asking 4190 euros (approximately AU$6000) for the Black Edition V3 Widebody kit and 1800 euros (approximately AU$2600) for the bonnet. All body parts supplied come with a smooth finish for easy paint preparation as well as all the correct mounting material, with no cutting or modifying required.

The W221 S-Class was produced from 2005 to 2013. Some of the models to hit Australia were the S 350, S 500, and the S 63 and S 65 AMG performance models. All cars except the S 65 AMG (five-speed automatic) came with a seven-speed automatic and measured over five metres in length. Our pick would be the 6.2-litre V8 S 63 AMG, punching out 386kW and 630Nm for a 0-100km/h time of just 4.6 seconds.
