Normally I’m not a big fan of Mansory’s tuning work, they seem to over-do everything but their latest project, the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Cormeum is kind of cool (for the most part). I guess the more aggressive headlights are my favorite part of the car; the front bumper is, as per usual, overdone.
The SLS AMG Cormeum will be produced in a limited number of 15 units and comes with an all carbon fiber body, which weighs 198 pounds (90 kg) less than the stock SLS. Aside from the ugly front bumper, which features huge air-intakes, the Mansory Cormeum comes with aggressive side-skirts, fenders, and a rear bumper with a fairly large diffuser. A massive wing sits on the trunk of the car, again, it’s presence/style is questionable. The car is 66 mm wider at the front and 84 mm at the rear thanks to the wide fenders.
The car sits on wide forged wheels with racing style center locks. The front wheels measure 9 x 20” with 265/30 tires and the rear wheels measure 11 x 21” with 295/25 Michelin high-performance tires. The car is equipped with new dampers and springs and sits 20 mm lower.
The supercharged engine now produces 660 horsepower with the help of tweaks to the supercharger; a stainless steel sports exhaust system and sports air filter was also added. Mansory plans on introducing an even more powerful SLS AMG at a later date; it will see an output of 800 horsepower.
We always love supercars that are low to the ground, feature wide bodies, and come with a lot of horsepower and the Mansory SLS AMG Cormeum has all these attributes. If only they would stop bastardizing their cars with massive wings and crazy bumpers, their cars could be the ultimate tuner cars. The Mansory SLS AMG will be presented at the Geneva Motor Show.
