Mansory unveiled the G-Couture today at the Geneva Motor Show. It is a tuning kit based on the G 55 AMG and limited to only seven cars. Tuner worked on both the car’s appearance, but also on improving its performances. The entire exterior up to the lower window edge and the roof of the SUV are made of carbon.
For the engine, all the components are replaced with high-performance components from the Mercedes-Benz SLR. The result is in impressive 700 hp and 880 NM of torque.
Press release after the jump.
The automobile refiner MANSORY turns the Mercedes-Benz G-class into a luxury vehicle class of its own in a limited edition of only seven cars. The car is based on the Mercedes-Benz G 55 AMG and bears the name G-Couture. Only very few people will be able to enjoy this unique automobile. The edition is strictly limited to only seven cars.
The new tailored suit of the G-model impresses both visually and also technically. The entire exterior up to the lower window edge and the roof of the SUV are made of carbon. But the ultra-light and high-strength material is not enough for MANSORY and its aspired exclusiveness. By using the autoclave-prepreg-method, the carbon is compressed so strongly in a special pressure chamber that no more air inclusions remain in the material. Normally, this processing method is only used in aviation and aerospace, as it is very cost-intensive. But MANSORY does not accept any compromise when it comes to quality.
The refiner also puts the same emphasis into the engine modification. MANSORY replaces the majority of the components with high-performance components from the Mercedes-Benz SLR. This extensive modification leads to impressive 700 hp (515 kW) with the MANSORY G-Couture instead of the serial 507 hp (373 kW) of the G 55 AMG. The maximum torque rises from 700 to 880 Newton metres.
In order to transmit this enormous power to the road, the luxury refiner equips the G-Couture with four high-performance tyres Pirelli Scorpion in the dimension 305/35 R 23. They are carried by new, one-part SUV-rims in 23 inches which MANSORY presents at their world premiere.
