When Mercedes introduced the new gullwing SLS AMG last year, tuners went to work to make their own versions of the newly famed Mercedes supercar. Mansory Cormeum took the standard SLS, wrapped it in a complete carbon shell, contributing to a 90kg (198 lbs) weight reduction, and a revised look.
Now, it’s obviously not the best looking rendition, especially with the SLR-esque Formula 1 inspired schnoz, but the body kit includes a new roof and wing doors, widened fenders, new side skirts, a new rear spoiler with carbon flaps and a race diffuser for additional downforce. Shoes are 9×20 inch rims with massive 265/30R20 Michelins up front and 11×21 inch rims at the back with 295/25R20 Michelins.
Mansory also takes the epic 6.2-liter V8 and increases output to 651hp. And if that’s not enough, a 789hp engine is also under development. The suspension has been lowered by about 20 mm with the help of new springs and dampers.
The inside receives some treatment too with hand-fitted leather finishing with custom stitching, carbon trim, and even a newly designed center console with other minor touches like aluminum pedals, and a sport steering wheel equipped wwith an airbag.
Prices have yet to be released, but we imagine that this car commands a bit a premium over the standard SLS.
