A First Look at Australia’s New Rocket Bunny CLK

A few weeks ago, THE-LOWDOWN.com had received a heads-up that something special was in the making. The words ‘something special’ always excites us, we love seeing our scene grow and wish we could hear those words more often.

Receiving a call last-night, we were told the project was finished and ready for the unveiling on the owner, Chris Vella’s wedding day (congratulations by the way!). THE-LOWDOWN.com was invited for a quick shoot but the team had no idea what to expect.

Arriving on location we were greeted with an array of supercars, special in their own right, but not what we were looking for until we spotted it hidden away; the Rocket Bunny Mercedes-Benz CLK 55 AMG.

What struck us immediately is how aggressive the Sarto Racing Rocket Bunny body kit is. Coupled with a fresh respray of gloss battleship grey, the paint scheme works amazingly with the Rocket Bunny kit and makes such an aggressive kit somewhat understated which we absolutely love.

From a distance, the RSV forged S|2 RS5Y wheels with electric green barrels demand your attention and once they have it, fail to let it go. Running 19 x 10 (245/35) at the fronts and 19 x 11 (295/30) on the rear wrapped in Toyo R888’s, laying the power to the tarmac is no issue at all.

It should be noted that this car was completed within two-weeks, a testament of several workshops coming together and working in synergy. We’re surprised the paintwork isn’t still wet!
