German tuner Mansory has unveiled its tuning package for the Mercedes-AMG SUV.
Over the years, Mansory has built a reputation for creating some wild creations, but recently, it’s toned things down a bit. That’s not to say its projects aren’t extensively overhauled, they’re just not as extreme as before. Case in point, this Mercedes-AMG GLS63 that makes an already wide SUV even wider. The front fenders push the body out nearly another inch (25 mm) while the rear adds another 1.5 inches (40 mm) to the body. It’s done in a subtle fashion, following the natural curves of the GLS63, while the additional vents up front give it a more aggressive appearance.
Matching up to the wider fenders are new bumpers and side skirts, while up front there’s a carbon fiber front lip and larger air intakes. The hood is also a lighter unit, while the rear gets a spoiler up top and a more aggressive diffuser.
Each corner of the GLS63 has been outfitted with massive 23-inch wheels, while a lowering module for the air suspension brings the SUV nearly 1.2 inches (30 mm) closer to the ground. The company also says it “significantly improves the handling during fast cornering,” which might be necessary since Mansory’s version packs 828 horsepower and 848 pound-feet of torque. Top speed has also been increased by 28 mph (45 km/h) to 183 mph (295 km/h).
With all those changes to the exterior, it’s no surprise Mansory’s interior department got free reign inside the cabin. Along with a new sports steering wheel, there’s plenty of visible carbon fiber, leather and Alcantara everywhere. There’s also diamond stitching and quilted appearance throughout for a more luxurious feel.
Pricing for the Mansory package wasn’t announced, but don’t expect it to be cheap. The Mercedes-AMG GLS63 starts from $125,025 including destination in the U.S., so Mansory knows who it’s targeting with these modifications.
