Mansory is a tuner well-known for its, some would say outlandish, modifications of luxury brands. In a departure from its wild color schemes, Mansory’s take on the Mercedes SLS AMG is nothing short of spectacular. There are no eye-catching color combinations, at least not in the demo car. Instead, it is wrapped in a matte finish with a front end that suggests a carbon fiber body structure. Now called the Mansory Cormeum, the treatment starts with a headlight remake that reminds one of a 599 from Maranello. The Swiss tuner then built up the car with carbon fiber panels that remove 90 kilos from the weight of a standard SLS AMG. In addition, the CF body kit adds fender extensions that widen the car by 66 mm at the front and 84 mm at the rear. 20-inch custom alloy wheels finish up the exterior treatment. Michelin tires in 265/30 for the fronts and 295/30 for the rears shod the matte, dark gray wheels. Interior modifications include a new steering wheel, aluminum pedals and carbon fiber trim. Unique stitching on a special leather finish off the interior.
No self-respecting company that calls itself a tuner will leave a car’s engine stock and AMG’s 6.3 liter V8 has been set up with a biturbo system developing 660 horsepower. Customers who find that output dismal may opt for the upcoming 800 horsepower development.
In a move sure to promote Mansory envy, the Swiss tuner has announced that only 15 examples of this particular kit will be produced. That will ensure exclusivity and, most probably, an astronomic price.
