German aftermarket tuner for the elite, the Germany-based Mansory has carved a name for itself with its creative takes on modifying just about every supercar imaginable. Their taste can sometimes be referred to as “acquired” because of how they’re not scared to take things to the extreme, sometimes over the top. Ok, more than sometimes over the top, but they do get things very, very right sometimes, too. Their version of the Maserati MC20 is absolute fire, no doubt. One of the latest cars they’ve turned their attention to has just been released in SA, so it’s quite fitting and maybe a prospective local owner will be wanting some of the Mansory magic after seeing this. Well, maybe in a different colourway. While things look rather lairy in these colours, the changes are actually not as extreme as we usually see. All Mercedes-AMG cars have carbon accents on them, sometimes as an optional extra, and Mansory has basically redesigned them to be a little more pronounced. We like it. The biggest thing that you can see has changed, besides the wheels, is the bonnet. Mansory redesigned the bonnet with a massive air intake that gives the car an aggressive look. It may whistle at high speed, it may not, but it looks great. 

Mansory also tinkers with the suspension and has somehow improved on the Mercedes-AMG components and so the car will apparently handle even better than before. Another easy spot is the change to the wheels, the OEM hoops have been relegated to the storeroom and a set of large 22-inch Type Y.5 Mansory wheels that have been given a black finish to match the rest of the accessories. The company also tinkers with the performance side of things and so the hybrid powerplant is already quite impressive with that twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 with a permanent synchronous electric motor rated at a combined 620 kW and 1400Nm of torque that can send the car from 0-100 km/h in 2.9 seconds and a top speed of 316 km/h. With Mansory, the power increases to 656 kW and 1 490 Nm of torque and that means 0-100 is shaved down to 2.8 seconds and the top speed bumps up to 320 km/h. This isn’t a small car and that launch matches Ken Block’s old Fiesta Gymkhana car, which is pretty damn mental. As said, the colour is odd, but if it was here in SA and the accents were changed to gold along with the wheels, it would be the ultimate Springbok player or supporter car. Whaddaya say Mercedes-Benz SA?

Take a look at the YouTube video that shows off the aforementioned Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S E Performance in its OEM-guise as seen before it had a stint in the creative workshop over at Mansory.
