Mansory is making it a trifecta as far as tuning debuts at the Frankfurt Motor Show is concerned. On top of their new programs for the Audi R8 Spyder and the Bentley Continental GT, the German tuning company has prepared a separate project for the Mercedes SLS AMG.

Comprising of both aerodynamic and performance upgrades, Mansory’s program for the SLS AMG has all the makings of a can’t miss, even for the lofty standards the Mercedes supercar belongs in. Among the aerodynamic additions done include a number of carbon fiber components to the chassis as a way to improve on the SLS AMG’s already superb handling. As far as cosmetic body kits are concerned, the SLS AMG has been fitted with a new carbon bonnet, illuminated gills, new side skirts, a new rear spoiler, an optimized diffuser, and a set of 20" lightweight forged wheels. The interior of the SLS AMG can also be dressed based on the preferences of the customer with plenty of high-end options to choose from.

Performance modifications were also a top priority given to the SLS AMG. In this instance, the power boost comes from a high-performance compressor unit that has been added to the car. Together with a new sports air filter and a stainless steel sports exhaust system, Mansory was able to take the supercar’s 6.3-liter V8 engine and bump up the output from 563 horsepower and 480 lb/t of torque all the way up to 732 horsepower at 6,500 rpm and a peak torque of 609 lb/ft.

The only concern we have with this project is that it looks strikingly similar to the SLS AMG by Hamann that is also present at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show. Of course, the package by Hamann produces far more power than the 636 HP from the Hamann Hawk.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

It’s a good thing that it still has an impressive and very efficient engine which gives me an idea that it is so fun and exciting to drive with on that specs. Moreover, I’m as yet fond with its looks.

I just noticed that this SLS AMG has a lot of models, and I really wonder if what’s the difference of this one from the other SLS AMG? Anyway, I’m still glad that they maintain it to have a nice speed performance.

I just only love the fact that it had an efficient and powerful engine, but I must say that unlike them, I’m not really impressed on the exterior detailing of it, especially on its aggressiveness.

Mansory is so customized and very high-end car. Like the car in most techno movie. Very like the dressed up and upholstery color combination. But the interesting part of this car is the opening door.

Wow! very impressive car. I think all the design of Mercedes brand is a long body. However, I want to see more car models of Mercedes benz like this, and I want to test it if have a good performance. smiley

This car is one of the best cars I’ve ever seen, a very high technology that no one can decline in any offer in the market. It has a perfect color, great interior and exterior.

This car is so thin and i think this is sports car. I like the scissor door and the hood has a good combination color for the body of the car.
