After we saw the Hamann Hawk, it is time to see another tuning programme for the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG: behold the Mansory Cormeum. As you can see from the photos, the front end of the car is completely changed and now features a brand new front bumper, bonnet and new headlights borrowed from the Ferrari 599 GTO. We have to admit, the design is quite interesting but we do like the original design, it is much better than this one.
Moreover, the new design also includes new front and rear fenders, side sills, a new rear apron with integrated exhaust system and a new big rear wing. The design is completed by the new 20-inch wheels (21-inch on the rear) nsory wheels wrapped in high performance tires.
Under the hood, the 6.2-liter engine delivers an impressive 660 hp / 485 kW (standard version delivers 563 bhp), but Mansory offers a new performance level where the total output can be increased to 800 hp. Inside, the car features a newly designed centre console, a newly developed full size airbag sports steering wheel, aluminium pedals and real carbon applications.
At first glimpse, the MANSORY Cormeum may appear like a Mercedes SLS AMG, although some people may do a double take. After all, the MANSORY Cormeum was derived from the Mercedes SLS AMG, with several differences separating the development of MANSORY Design & Holding GmbH and the creation of Mercedes-AMG.
The head-turning stunning design of the MANSORY Cormeum was the brainchild of owner and head designer Kourosh Mansory, who himself personally selected the name for the Mercedes SLS AMG derivative. Just like the Bugatti Veyron derivative Vincero, the Mercedes SLS AMG was inspirationally named after an aria -- Vide Cor Meum. Compared to the base Mercedes SLS AMG, the MANSORY Cormeum is around 90 kg lighter but is stiffer, thanks to the optimizations that Kourosh Mansory's team has implemented.
Moreover, MANSORY replaced the roof and the wing doors with its ultra-light developments. MANSORY also replaced the serial bumper with its own front skirt, which has a carefully designed and engineered shape to help reduce the uplifting forces at the front axle.
The front end of the MANSORY Cormeum now features a new LED light unit as well as larger air inlets, giving its front fascia a more dynamic appearance. On the other hand, the interior of the MANSORY Cormeum has been transformed into a highly functional control center that features a state-of-the-art design and a high-level of quality.
Kourosh Mansory's team also employed only the most exquisite materials to provide the interior with a high level of comfort and highly refined elegance. In fact, the highly acceptable and superiorly soft processed leather used on the newly designed center console of the MANSORY Cormeum features special grain and perfect decorative stitches.
Moreover, the MANSORY Cormeum is specified with a full size airbag sports steering wheel as well as aluminum pedals and real carbon applications. Providing superb power output of around 660 hp, the MANSORY Cormeum would have limited production of only 15 examples to be built.
