Geneva 2011: Mansory Cormeum is Like Bad Opera for the Eyes

Geneva 2011: Mansory Cormeum is Like Bad Opera for the Eyes

Never one to disappoint, Mansory has revealed a host of new models at the Geneva Auto Show, including this rendition of the Mercedes-Benz SLS.

With an all-new carbon fiber shell, Mansory claims the car is almost 200 lbs lighter than the stock vehicle. Rather than just replace parts, Mansory got creative with the body, adding some wild additions up front, flared fenders (by 2-inches up front and 3-inches in the rear) and a massive rear spoiler.

Also helping cut weight are the ultra-thin spoke center-lug wheels, which sit deeper in the wheel wells thanks to a suspension that has been lowered almost an inch.

Mansory says power has been upped to 651-hp, while a 789-hp package is in the works.

As for that name Cormeum, it comes from a “operatic aria” called Vide Cor meum, that’s based on Dante’s “La Vita Nuova.” (Hey, at least we avoided any references to Dante’s “Inferno”).
