World premiere at the 80th Geneva Motor Show

(PresseBox) ( Brand, )
Kourosh Mansory puts a designer piece on wheels. Together with celebrity fashion designer Philipp Plein, the automobile refiner MANSORY turns the Mercedes-Benz Gclass into a luxury vehicle class of its own in a limited edition of only seven cars. Only very few people will be able to enjoy this unique automobile. The edition is strictly limited to only seven cars.

So far, Philipp Plein is renowned around the world for his fashion and furniture. Now, he tailors a new robe for the Mercedes-Benz G 55 AMG together with the topclass refiner MANSORY. In cooperation with the engineers in Brand close to Bayreuth / Bavaria, the famous designer has developed an exterior that embodies the typically selfconfident character of all MANSORY automobiles.

The new tailored suit of the Gmodel impresses both visually and also technically. The entire exterior up to the lower window edge and the roof of the SUV are made of carbon. But the ultralight and highstrength material is not enough for MANSORY and its aspired exclusiveness. By using the autoclaveprepregmethod, the carbon is compressed so strongly in a special pressure chamber that no more air inclusions remain in the material. Normally, this processing method is only used in aviation and aerospace, as it is very costintensive. But MANSORY does not accept any compromise when it comes to quality.

The refiner also puts the same emphasis into the engine modification. MANSORY replaces the majority of the components with highperformance components from the Mercedes-Benz SLR. This extensive modification leads to impressive 700 hp (515 kW) with the MANSORY G-Couture instead of the serial 507 hp (373 kW) of the G 55 AMG. The maximum torque rises from 700 to 880 Newton metres.

In order to transmit this enormous power to the road, the luxury refiner equips the G-Couture with four highperformance tyres Pirelli Scorpion in the dimension 305/35 R 23. They are carried by new, onepart SUVrims in 23 inches which MANSORY presents at their world premiere.

And of course the interior is nothing short of the exclusive exterior. Thereby it is obvious that MANSORY has replaced the back bench with four single seats whose lateral support has grown with the performance of the car. A further application is the continuous central console which now reaches from the back seat to the cockpit and offers the passengers at the back seat integrated monitors which are connected to the DVD entertainment system.

The MANSORY upholstery department only allows flawless leather for the interior. The perfectly processed skins do not only stand out for their endurance but also for their especially pleasant surface quality. The exquisite overall impression is enhanced by the airbag sports steering wheel and the aluminium pedals. The entire refinement of the passenger cabin is emphasised by applications made of real python skin in silver and crowned with G-Couture logos in the head rests.

As revolutionary as Philipp Plein influences the world of fashion, as successful Kourosh Mansory turns luxury automobiles into exclusive unique specimen. With their cooperation, the two artists created a unique SUV which combines luxury, extravagant design and top driving performance.
