Mansory Presents a One-of-a-Kind Upgrade for the Mercedes-AMG GT S
Just shortly after the MANSORY world premiere of the sensational wide bodywork version of the AMG GT S at the Geneva Motor Show, the renowned vehicle refinement specialists have dug deep once again and are presenting a new development produced as a one-off model.
The MANSORY designers have paid special attention to the rear of the Gran Turismo, giving it a much more striking look: the powerful rear wing alone is an impressive testament to the urge – and ability – to take corners at race speeds. The remodelled rear spoiler with integrated diffuser provides amble support with added downforce and is perfectly in keeping with the existing, masculine wide bodywork design.
But it is not only the shape of the individual parts that has been specially reworked by the refinement house. Specifically for this model, MANSORY uses a special process to paint all visible carbon fibre parts in ruby red to fulfil the colour preference expressed by its owner, Bandar.
And the engine, too, has been optimised to meet the customer’s desires: The main components of performance optimisation are larger turbochargers as well as a sport exhaust system made from stainless steel.
When combined with a sports air filter, this is responsible for the powerful, robust sound of the 4.0-litre aggregate. These components are precisely tuned to work in union using a new mapping system for the engine’s electronics. With a peak performance of 730 PS, the MANSORY engine exactly meets the wishes of its clientele who have sporting ambitions.
The uprated Gran Turismo offers exquisite performance figures: The two-seater only requires 3.4 seconds to go from 0-100 km/h and with a top speed of 330 km/h, even the basic model of the MANSORY refined GT S is streets ahead.
Another highlight of the refinements is the central lock lightweight wheel featuring the name “7spoke”. At the front, the recommended wheel-tyre combination is 9.5×21 inches with tyres featuring the dimensions 245/35ZR21. At the rear, 10.5×21 large rims with a tyre size of 305/25ZR21 are put to use. The wheel-tyre combination and chassis springs help lower the sports car to leave a lasting impression.
In the interior, MANSORY has created a control centre to unify functionality and comfort. The sports steering wheel designed especially for the Mercedes AMG GT S features a carbon inlay and the aluminium pedals guarantee full control over the vehicle.
The interior simultaneously exudes pure luxury. Almost all interior furnishing components have been masterfully created by hand from leather and top-quality MANSORY carbon fabric. Precisely embroidered logos and illuminated door sills perfectly round off the refinement programme.
