The GruppeM Mercedes-Benz SL500 carbon fiber ram air intake system was designed with K&N to dramatically improve airflow across the entire rpm range while also reducing induction temperatures. Every intake system comes with a proprietary filter element made exclusively for GruppeM by K&N. The result is a tremendous improvement in horsepower and torque throughout the entire powerband of the engine by utilizing the "ram air effect" which forces a greater volume of air into the engine and increases the density of the intake charge. Each intake application is custom engineered for your vehicle using the highest quality carbon fiber weave and is designed to fit perfectly with minimal installation difficulty. The result is a carbon fiber ram air intake system that looks as good as it performs.

GruppeM was founded in 1996 and is based in Saitama, Japan. The company develops high-performance auto products, including carbon fiber air induction systems, titanium exhaust systems, stainless-steel brake lines, aerodynamic parts, and engine software upgrades. Its products are designed to work in synergy with a vehicle’s entire system to deliver exceptional performance and aesthetics without compromise.
GruppeM parts are considered to exceed even the highest standards of manufacturing, resulting in performance improvements for a wide array of high-performance car brands like BMW, Porsche, Ferrari, and Lamborghini. GruppeM’s work is so widely recognized that its products have been featured in several international automotive magazines, project cars, and race cars. In fact, GruppeM parts have been rigorously tested both on and off the track by a number of racing teams across different championships with impressive victories. It’s no surprise that GruppeM is regarded as the premier aftermarket choice for air induction systems and high-performance exhausts.
GruppeM specializes in designing high-flow carbon fiber air intake systems, which are manufactured through a stringent process with strict quality requirements. While intakes are its specialty, the brand now includes a comprehensive lineup of performance exhausts, brake line systems, and carbon fiber aerodynamic elements. All GruppeM products boast top quality, proven performance benefits, and pleasing aesthetics.
What makes GruppeM’s intakes systems so special is the company’s zero-tolerance manufacturing process. It utilizes top-grade carbon fiber composites to dramatically cool intake temperatures and increase airflow through the engine for heightened performance levels. The company’s exhaust systems are crafted from aerospace-grade titanium and T304 stainless steel. The result is a significant reduction in weight and increased horsepower throughout the entire rev-range.
GruppeM’s brake lines are made from carbon steel and stainless-steel components. They are specifically designed to withstand even the harshest racing conditions, making them ideal for high-performance street applications. Lastly, GruppeM offers a variety of performance software, which is developed on the dyno in-house at the company’s Long Beach, California facility using a Dynapack DAQ55 4WD dynamometer. Each individual software application is custom developed to improve power figures through every RPM and is designed to work seamlessly with GruppeM’s intake and exhaust systems.
