In Geneva, Glasurit paints gleam on Mansory-tuned Rolls, Benz and Ferrari

Eye-catching models in gold, deep black, black and white - and mat

(PresseBox) (Münster/Geneva, ) Mansory recommends Glasurit: A testimony doesn t get any clearer than that. Glasurit, BASF Coatings automotive refinish brand, and the Mansory tuning company made a splash with their joint appearance at the Geneva International Motor Show. Mansory presented three custom-tuned luxury vehicles refinished with Glasurit paints from Münster as a world premiere: a Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano, a Mercedes-Benz SLR and a Rolls Royce Drophead Coupé. It was the fourth joint appearance for Glasurit and Mansory in the international car show arena, which included the 2007 and 2008 Geneva International Car Show, the 2007 International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt and the 2007 Middle East International Motor Show in Dubai.

The three luxury vehicles were real head-turners in Geneva. The Mercedes-Benz SLR, with its mat gold finish was particularly eye-catching. Mansory employees at the booth fielded all kinds of questions about the color and the mat clearcoat used on the vehicle. And it was the only car at the show to sport a gold finish - a golden solution made by Glasurit.

Mansory has an international reputation for its superior competence in tuning Rolls Royce vehicles. The Rolls Royce Drophead Coupé presented in deep glossy black and silver mat on the hood was yet another masterpiece produced by Mansory.

The Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano in black and white was constantly surrounded by a flock of admirers. The hot sports car captivated the visitors with its elegance and exuded pure driving fun.

The early bird gets the worm, they say, and it was no exception when it came to the three classy models. They were all snapped up within the first hours of the show. But the experts at Mansory, based in the southern German town of Brand, have lots more ideas where these models came from. They plan to tune many more vehicles in the premium range in response to the great demand.

Mansory's new integrated paint shop has been ideally integrated into the tuning process. The five spraypainting experts working on site are true believers in Glasurit and use these products exclusively.
