We’ll admit it: less than two weeks ago, we pretty much ran Mansory into the ground for their mishandling of a Ferrari SF90 Spider. The resulting ‘F9XX Tempesta Celeste’ had so much carbon fiber winging that no power figure could justify it — not even its 1,100 horsepower. The asymmetrical light blue interior didn’t help to make the end result easier to digest either, so we almost canceled our membership in the Mansory fan club… But luckily the Germans show just in time that they haven’t completely lost their sense of taste.
Mansory with folding spoiler
Mansory has indeed looked into the new Mercedes-AMG SL 63, and the end result may well show itself in the street scene as far as we are concerned. Of course, the tuner has replaced just about everything that could be removed from the body, such as the bumpers, the wheels, the mirror caps, the hood and the spoiler. The pieces that replaced it, however, are so modestly designed that they almost seem functional. For example, the front bumper is actually not absurdly much lower than the standard one, the spoiler is actually foldable and the upholstery of the interior consists of leather in only one shade. The black of the body is alternated with accents in copper, but admit it: in 2023, even a Dacia is not wrong.
Under the skin, however, this tuned SL 63 is still just as Mansory as its more screaming brothers. The Germans have taken care of the 4.0-liter V8 biturbo engine, which produces a little more than the usual 585 horsepower. For example, Mansory supplies the adjustment in two variants: as a P720 and as a P850. The latter brings – you guessed it – 850 hp to the four wheels, good for a 0-100 sprint in 3.2 seconds and a top of 332 hp / h. Not bad for a relatively subtle appearance — until someone has one built in fluorescent yellow, that is.
