Ok, so this major overhaul from MANSORY for the Mercedes SL isn’t only for the AMG version, it can be carried out on any version of it, but we like to think the result of this rework will have an AMG-fettled lump up front. While the visuals of the makeover are mainly in the bodywork and the interior, in true MANSORY fashion there are also tuning packages available to bump up the power on either version. In our heads, this is AMG through and through. So yeah, what all goes into turning the Mercedes SL into a wide-body monster? A fair amount. Mercedes has made the SL since 1954, the letter combination has stood for dreams on four wheels at Mercedes and each individual model series of the now total of eight generations has always been style-defining for its respective era, the car has appealed to roadster fans from all walks of life. One of our favourite incarnations is the 2008 SL 55 AMG, but this MANSORY-edition has just moved to the top spot of amazing German roadsters. MANSORY has designed and fitted numerous carbon fibre add-on parts for the front air intakes, below and to the side of the front apron, in the radiator grille, the sills, the wing mirrors and the rear apron. There are even carbon bits for the front windscreen frame, the side air outlets at the front, and the rear on the wings. The bonnet and a rear spoiler, as well as the wing extensions are also made from carbon fibre. While this is all brilliant, it also tips you off that this SL makeover will cost more than a pretty penny.
Take a look at the YouTube video from the GCarLover chaps as they walk us through the changes that have been carried out on this Mercedes-AMG SL by one of the masters in aftermarket tuning - Mansory. Sure, not all of their creations make you smile, some are a big cringeworthy but that's far from the case when it comes to the wide body conversion carried out on this open top Merc: Mercedes SL63 AMG by MANSORY | 850 hp | GCarLover
