Mercedes Benz New SL R231 carbon fiber interior upgrade


   This year marks the 60th anniversary of the Mercedes Benz SL. This year we also get a brand new SL, the R231 chassis. This chassis is composed almost entirely out of aluminum making it 300 pounds lighter, Super-Liecht indeed!

       Our premier dealer on the East coast,  Detailing Dynamics recently requested a carbon fiber interior upgrade their customer’s brand new AMG SL63. Begun as a simple detailing shop in 1994, Detailing Dynamics, has expanded to do performance and appearance modifications. They also offer line of cleansing and detailing products.

       Our interior upgrade for the Mercedes R231 includes seven carbon fiber pieces that replace the existing wood trim. It really gives the car the look an AMG should have! Installation takes about five hours.

MAcarbon Wins Two SEMA Awards

At SEMA 2011, MAcarbon took home two Global Media Awards for our “Mercedes Custom Steering Wheel And Shift Paddle Extensions” (see pic below). The Global Media Awards panel consists of a prestigious group of international journalists serving as judges, with 26 judges from 12 key automotive markets. Each judge carefully reviewed and evaluated items in the New Products Showcase before making their selections. GT Entertainment (France) and Autonews (Germany) magazines recognized our steering wheels as a product they felt would “resonate and appeal most to consumers”. We feel the same, and hope you’ll enjoy and make use of our new version of the wheel configurator to customize your own car!

The SEMA Show 2011


MAcarbon had a booth at The SEMA Show in Las Vegas Nevada for the third year in a row and it was the best show yet.  All of the halls were full with products for any car or truck lover to gush over.  Our booth was in a great location near the Mazdaspeed booth and we had a ton of traffic throughout the entire week.
Lane drove the shop car “Porsche 996 Targa” and John drove to trusty Mazda minivan the 9 hours to Vegas where we met up with our partners from Belgium (Georges and Caroline) and Canada (Andre).  We had a great time visiting with several of our current customers and met many more potentially great customers…It was the best show yet!
We entered our “Mercedes W211 Steering Wheel with extended Carbon Shift Paddles” in the new products section and we came away with two awards for having one of the best new products at SEMA.
Lane was able to sneak away from the booth for a couple hours each day and take these pictures showing the variety that SEMA has to offer to everyone’s taste.
Here are some pictures of the cars with MAcarbon parts at SEMA…See all of our pictures on our Facebook page:

Mercedes McLaren SLR Carbon Interior

We recently did our first Mercedes McLaren SLR interior.
John and Lane flew to Florida to assist and take picures of this MAcarbon insterior being installed by Renntech.
Thanks to to Nico @ Renntech of putting up with us!

The SLR is a SUPERCAR in every possible way…Lightning fast, eye catching, expensive, but the interior is boring and looks like it would be in a lesser car.  Every body panel on the SLR is made of carbon fiber, so why not add some of that carbon to the interior.  Our customer ( gave us free reign with this car and we think it turned out amazing.  We did about 25 pieces in carbon and did the rear storage compartment lid, door panel inserts, handbrake boot and shift knob boot in black suede with red stitching.

Enjoy the pictures!



Mercedes G55 Carbon Interior

MAcarbon Mercedes G55 Steering Wheel

The G55 is Mercedes’ serious off-road vehicle. It is also one of their most luxurious. As such, they did not offer a carbon interior for the car. MAcarbon was asked by Progressive Autosports of Houston Texas ( to help one of their customers who wanted a carbon interior in their new 2010 G55. Due to the high cost of parts from Mercedes, the customer’s parts were sent to us. Within the quick 3 week turnaround time, all wood pieces were changed over to carbon. This includes the steering wheel, center console, upper console and radio surround, shift knob, passenger grab handle and seat switch surrounds. If you have a Mercedes G55 and would like a quote on your interior, please contact MAcarbon for a quote.
