The Mansory Monster!
That has kindof a nice ring to it =]
In reality, Mansory makes cars that are overhauled so well, and so thoroughly, that you would only call it a monster with a smile on your face.
The latest S63 AMG goes under the microscope at Mansory and comes out wider, lower, meaner and leaner. There are numerous body upgrades to enjoy outside, ultra-soft leather inside with unique patterns and an unlimited palatte, but leather-wrapping of virtually every cabin element. Everything.
Do upgrade an S-Class so thoroughly is really, really difficult. They basically have to disassemble entire sections of the car. So you want a German and Swiss expert like Mansory’s team when re-assembling it all.
Under the new bulging hood are two power kit upgrades: the M800 which hits 62-mph in 3.6-seconds, and the ludicrisly-fast M1000 that will do the 100-kph sprint in 3.2-seconds.
For the shorter 60-mph run, a time under under 3.1-seconds is a sure thing, and repeatable all day thanks to 4MATIC traction.
Do not worry that the new AWD for AMG cars dilutes the fun. They still feel overwhelmingly rear-drive behind the wheel, and will drift like an SLS all day if heavily provoked.
The new S63 AMG by MANSORY is a monster on the outside, but a lover on the inside. Until you floor the throttle, that is….!
The only note? This first car lacks tinted windows. We had altered it digitally to darken the glass – with results before/after below (including some photo magic to show the wheels more=).
Pretty dramatic change with darker glass, especially with the complete de-chrome of the factory S63’s exterior.
Mansory can, of course, do your car in any color and will gladly tint the glass.
If you are feeling extra lavish, there are also a dozen carbon-fiber designs from which to choose.
MANSORY S63 AMG
Sporty design and innovative technology –
the MANSORY refinement programme for the new Mercedes S Class AMG S63
MANSORY is one of the premier addresses for the exclusive refinement of Mercedes vehicles. The company from Brand in Bavaria, Germany has once more proven this with the new Mercedes S Class AMG S63. A complete refinement program is available and gives the Daimler flagship a much more sporty and individual flair.
Sporty elegance characterises the look of the MANSORY aerodynamic programme: The components of the front spoiler are tastefully coordinated with the adapted LED daytime running lights and the new bonnet cover turns the front of the MANSORY S Class into a dynamic eye catcher. The roof and rear lips are in perfect harmony with this, as well as the rear apron which is designed in a diffuser look. The sporty appearance is completed by the new side skirts, the front wings which have been subtly widened, as well as the carbon housing of the rear-view mirror. In general MANSORY produces all bodywork components from the ultralight material carbon.
The MANSORY sports exhaust is responsible for a throaty and imposing sound. The rear silencer, which is made from stainless steel with its angular twin tailpipes, perfectly integrates itself into the newly designed rear section. But MANSORY is much more than just a powerful sound. Also the performance has already been massively cranked up. To this end, MANSORY has completely reworked the AMG S63 eight cylinder twin turbo and installed genuine high performance components. MANSORY provides a choice of two upgrades: for the MANSORY M800 variant the engine performance is increased to an impressive 800 hp/588 kW at 4,750 rpm. The torque grows to an electronically limited 1,200 Nm at 1,700 – 3,500 rpm. So the AMG S63 with the M800 power pack races from zero to speed in 3.6 seconds (series 4.0 secs).
The MANSORY M1000 performance kit gets right down to business; connecting rods, big end bearings, crankshaft, bearing bushings, turbocharger, suction and compressor system, as well as many other parts replace the serial parts in these variants. Together with the newly conceived pipe fan manifolds this results in superb performance values. Instead of 585 hp (430 kW) the heavily modified S Class now achieves an impressive 1,000 hp (735 kW) while the maximum torque climbs to an electronically limited 1,400 Nm at 1,500 – 3,500 rpm. So when fired up the saloon rockets to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds and only stops at an electronically regulated 300 km/h.
The rim program is impressive in both its scale and its extent. Whether stylishly sporty or luxurious and refined- MANSORY offers various wheel designs and sizes. The latest development is the one-piece 22 inch Multispoke alloy wheel. As the perfect tyres MANSORY recommends Vredestein tyres in size 255/30/ZR22 on the front axle and 295/25/ZR22 on the rear axle.
Totally in keeping with the Mercedes traditional brand which in the interior places value on comfort, elegance but also sportiness, MANSORY offers fitting interior applications: Therefore aluminium pedals as well as the newly designed steering wheel give a sporty accent. The set of foot mats, which are framed in leather with embroidered MANSORY emblem, as well as the illuminated door sill trims, underline the elegant effect. On request MANSORY will individualise the complete interior in their in-house saddlery with leather, carbon, wood or other precious materials.
