Mansory, known for pushing design and performance boundaries, has introduced its latest iteration based on the new Mercedes-AMG S 63 E Performance, setting it apart with a unique body kit.
This upgraded model showcases a redesigned grille with enlarged cooling openings, a carbon-fibre hood featuring Naca ducts, custom daytime running lights (DRLs), and prominent bumper extensions. Notable features include oversized side gills and an optional F1-style brake light on the rear diffuser, while the sports exhaust system boasts quad tailpipes as standard.
The use of lightweight composite material is evident in the side skirts, mirror caps, and air intake trims, adding a sporty flair to the luxury sedan. The FD.15 wheels, albeit potentially divisive, measure 22 inches and offer a narrower width at the front (265/30 R22) and a wider size at the rear (305/25 R22).
Mansory offers a tailored cabin experience, allowing clients to customise elements such as colours, fine leather, Carbon inlays, a carbon leather sports steering wheel, and aluminium pedals bearing the MANSORY logo. The AMG S 63 E Performance, unveiled last year, stands as the most potent S-Class yet. Mansory elevates this power further, boasting an output of 647 kW of power and 1 490 N.m of torque, a modest upgrade from the factory tune of 537 kW and 1 430 N.m. The German tuner claims a top speed of 320 km/h and an acceleration of 0-100 km/h in 2.8 seconds.
Mansory caters to a niche market, amplifying performance and design for those seeking exclusivity. However, this modification raises questions about whether it enhances the classic S-Class or if it veers away from its heritage. Nevertheless, it could also be seen as a response to meeting evolving customer desires.
