You probably all know Mansory for his outrageous take on cars. Not just any cars, but expensive cars that some people prefer to keep intact. But for those who want more – whether through over-engineered body kits or the use of garish colors – trust Mansory to go above and beyond and bring something different.
However, this piece of Mercedes-AMG SL63 is not one of them. Seeming rather subtly dressed, Mansory’s take on the AMG SL from top to bottom is surprisingly subdued and could pass for a tasteful tune at at first glance.
The focus on “first look” when looking at Mansory’s work on the AMG SL reveals that the company hasn’t been shy about giving the 2+2 GT a wild makeover… at least in terms of the use of body kits. Up front, you’ll see the revamped bumper with copper accents, with the three-pointed star replaced by Mansory’s own roundel. The restyled air vents are of course surrounded by carbon fiber elements, just like the front bumper spoiler and the housing of the side mirrors.
The story is the same on the back. The spoiler, diffuser and several bumper elements all receive a carbon fiber makeover edged with copper accents. To top it off, Mansory said the 22-inch wheels come in different designs. Inside, it seems that the tuning company has equipped the AMG SL63 with a white upholstery, which includes seat belts.
Mansory’s work is not exclusive to exterior and interior elements of the convertible. There’s not a whole lot of information passed on about the German tuner’s announcement of said build, apart from two performance levels that will be available: P720 and P850.
That means Mansory tuned the AMG SL63 to under 720 and 850 horsepower (the company uses PS for its output ratings), which should be well above the car’s stock form. Of note, the AMG SL63’s 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 develops 577 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque, which are by no means a slacker based on our review. Mansory’s tune is said to give the AMG SL63 a maximum acceleration rate of zero to 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) in just 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 206 mph (332 km/ h).
Mansory did not reveal the price of this version, but knowing the brand, it will not be cheap at all.
