Tracing its roots back to 1886, with the invention of what is widely regarded as the first vehicle, Mercedes-Benz brought about a new era in human transportation and excitement. No longer would people have to customize their horses one at a time, instead all of their horses and carriages would be combined into a single package to be later recognized as one of the premier luxury brands in the world. Eric Lopez, along with Aero Function, took one of the best built luxury sports cars on the road and brought out its full potential. Starting with a 2005 Mercedes Benz SL500, they added a slew of products that turned it into a mean looking street machine worthy of keeping paces with even the newest SL's off the production line.

Eric described Aero Function as "a leading manufacturer of premium aerodynamic & carbon fiber components for high-end luxury vehicles around the world," this SL was decked out using Aero Function's signature 12 piece wide body kit finished in DTM silver from BASF's paint division. With Vorsteiner forged wheels, R1 Concepts slotted rotors and a custom exhaust system, additional engine performance was as easy as a K&N air filter. "K&N offers a reliable product that we do not have to question down the line, it is our choice of filter because the performance factor never disappoints," said Eric. Taking body styling hints from its current sibling, the SL65 AMG Black Series, this subtle yet wicked SL500 was the envy of most SEMA attendees and was surely the inspiration for others to customize their Mercedes-Benz SL series sports car.

This 2012 SEMA feature vehicle will also be featured in Performance Auto and Sound Magazine and the "goal is to be at every major event in CA and try to take part in more local events to help strengthen the community we all have grown to love," Eric said. With the mind set of continuing "to set new standards for the [automotive] industry... [and] pride ourselves on our customer service," Eric and Extreme Dimensions are great examples of what the automotive industry is all about and the devotion that can be found within every member.

Eric's final comment: "K&N sponsored us with the air and oil filter for our project. [W]e chose K&N based off the reputation and our existing relationship." We hope to continue a strong and long lasting relationship with this exquisite company and their great creations.
