Mansory Adds Carbon Fiber Body and 89 Ponies to Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG

The Swiss aftermarket specialist Mansory has unveiled its take on the the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG supercar and the result of their work is very different from what they began with. For starters, the tuners replaced the Gullwing-door model's aluminium bodyshell with a carbon fiber one, shaving 90 kg of the car's weight in the process.

The style is signed by Kourosh Mansory, owner and head designer of the company. Changes are extensive and include fitting new headlights (strikingly similar to those on the Ferrari 599), a new front spoiler with giant air intakes, a F1-inspired nose, lots of brake air ducts, a rear spoiler equipped with a huge air-diffuser plus an equally massive wing on the boot.

Called the Cormeum, Mansory's interpretation of the SLS AMG includes a modified engine that produces 660 hp (89 hp more than the production model) thanks to the fitting of a sports air filter, a custom exhaust system and the adjustment of high-performance compressors. And if that is not enough, Mansory is already testing a 800 hp performance upgrade.

The Cormeum rides 20 mm lower than the SLS AMG thanks to new dampers and springs, while the performance mods are rounded off with a set of 20-inch alloy wheels at the front and 21-inch at the back.

The German supercar's interior has been enhances with hand-stitched soft leather upholstery, carbon trim and aluminium pedals. Mansory's SLS AMG will be offered in a limited edition of 15 units.
