2012 Mercedes SLS AMG Cormeum by Mansory

The first Mercedes SLS AMG to receive a makeover for Geneva was the "Hamann Hawk" by none other than Hamann. Dressed up in a prissy Everose Gold, this tuning package for the SLS model received a power boost up to 636hp. This is all fine and dandy, but it’s time for the Hamann Hawk to meet the more sinister side of the Mercedes SLS AMG. It’s time for the "Cormeum" by Mansory to take its place in the winner’s circle.

The first thing anyone will notice on the made over SLS AMG is the intense use of carbon fiber and the aggressive body kit attached to it, but under the hood there is a small can of whoop-ass just waiting to be opened. Engine updates come in the form of a power boost to 660hp, with an 800hp package currently in the works.

Exterior and Interior

The new Cormeum SLS AMG take its inspiration from an older Mansory model, the Veyron Vincero . The package uses lots of carbon fiber in order to make the car lighter than the serial model. The serial bumper has been replaced by a Mansory front skirt that reduces the uplifting forces at the front axle and there are larger air inlets in connection with a new LED light unit. The front and rear mudguards have also been replaced with broader newly designed light-weight parts.

The package continues with new side skirts, a new rear apron, and a new rear spoiler with carbon flaps. The car sits on 20" exclusive forged wheels with central locking.

For the interior, Mansory is offering a highly functional control center, the highest quality leather, newly developed full size airbag sports steering wheel, aluminum pedals, and real carbon applications.

Engine

For the engine updates, Mansory is offering high-performance compressors, a sports air filter, and a sports exhaust system made of stainless steel. The result of these additions combined with the standard 6.3-liter V8 engine is a total of 660 HP (up from standard 570 HP).

Prices

Mansory hasn’t revealed any pricing details on the package, but it’s safe to say that the full package - car and add-ons - will set you back much more than the starting price of $185,750 for the standard Mercedes SLS AMG.

Competition

Ever since its official launch, the SLS AMG has seen plenty of tuning packages come its way. At the Geneva Auto Show where the Cormeum Mansory debuted, Hamann also brought out its SLS AMG Hamann Hawk . For this project, Hamann updated the total output to a total of 636 horsepower and a maximum torque of 680 Nm of torque. While Mansory has yet to reveal any details on how their updates improved the car’s performances, Hamann announced a 0 to 60 mph sprint time of just 3.6 seconds with a top speed of 199 mph.

Both cars have their pros and cons. The look of the Cormeum is nice, but maybe a little overdone, while the Everose Gold found on the Hamann Hawk may be a bitter pill for some to swallow. The power choice would be the Cormeum Mansory.

The front exterior looks exactly like the Slr Stirling Moss

The nose is probably the part that I am liking the most about this car. It makes the car look sleeker and sorts of flow rather nicely with the entire design.

Finally, a different take on the SLS AMG. Most of the tune ups that I have seen still retain the boxy feel of the car. This one made the SLS AMG look sleeker and more aggressive.
