With a 6.2L V8, 563 HP engine, the Mercedes Benz SLS AMG is a very unique vehicle that deserves to be kept in perfect condition for years to come.
Now, the question is: How to enjoy driving it without having to worry about potential rock chips, swirl marks, scratches...?
Besides keeping this incredible vehicle in your garage, the best option is to protect the body of the car with paint protection film.
The First Class Autosports team decided with the proud owner of this SLS to use a very unique paint protection film from Xpel.
It is the Xpel Ultimate (self healing) STEALTH paint protection film.
In Xpel own words:
Not all paint protection films are created equal...
...due to their warranties, clarity, durability, gloss retention, and more. XPEL ULTIMATE leads the industry in all of these areas and has a 10-year warranty covering defects such as yellowing, cracking, staining, blistering or delaminating.
Protecting your car with paint protection film has many benefits. It will help maintain your car’s factory finish, make your car easier to clean, help the resale value of your vehicle, all while it is being protected from every day driving.
Our XPEL ULTIMATE film self-heals from light scratches, swirl marks and rock chips while driving or maintaining your vehicle. During the show we use a Brass wire brush to simulate the every day occurrences that can affect the film. With the sun on the display the scratches from the brush instantly disappear. When the sun is not available, you can accelerate the healing process with a cup of warm water or a heat source
This paint protection film can be used to protect any matte paint finishes that you can now custom order from manufacturers like Mercedes Benz, Ferrari, Lamborghini, BMW and a few others
The advantage for our customer? Protection while receiving a new matte look finish. In fact, Xpel STEALTH paint protection turns any gloss color into a matte finish paint.

In this specific case, the only way to obtain a full matte finish was to cover every panels with the matte paint protection to offer a virtually invisble finish
Of course this custom job was much more intense and demanding compared to a regular partial or full front paint protection package
After a lot of hours of work, here is the final result and of course a few pictures to enjoy from the different steps involved in a perfect Matte finish STEALTH Xpel self healing paint protection installation
