Mansory’s Mercedes-AMG GT S Is A 1/2 Meter-Wider 720HP Beast

Mansory tuning house has revealed their proposal for the Mercedes AMG GT S, adding more than 200hp and a traditionally controversial wide body kit into the mix.

If you thought then that the Mercedes AMG GT S lacked in power and in stance, then Mansory has you covered.

The twin-turbo 4-litre V8 engine now features a set of larger turbochargers, a new stainless steel sports exhaust system and a new mapping system for a total of 720hp, up from the factory 503hp. This allows the Mansory AMG GT S to accelerate from zero to 62mph (0-100km/h) in 3.4 seconds and onto a top speed of 205mph (330km/h).

The tuner claims that all bodywork changes were ‘targeted’ in order to boost the aerodynamic values of the AMG GT S. For instance, the new front spoiler reduces lift while the rear wing combined with the rear diffuser increase the provided downforce for more grip on the road.

The main highlight though is the side extensions which add 250mm (nearly 10 inches!) per side in width, making room for bigger wheels and wider tires, essential components when you have so much power on tap. Every component of Mansory’s wide body kit is made out of carbon fibre for the obvious reduced-weight reasons.

The lightweight ‘Spyder’ wheels measure 9.5x21in at the front and 10.5x21in at the rear and wear 245/30s and 305/25s respectively. Mansory also offers as an option a set of 10-spoke central lock rims.

The cabin now hosts a combination of hand-stitched leather and Mansory’s carbon fabric, with the steering wheel featuring a red visible carbon trim.

The car will be revealed at the Geneva Motor Show, along more of Mansory’s creations.
