Tuner wraps the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG in a new carbon shell that drops 90 kg in weight from the raging sports coupe

This is the Mansory Cormeum based on the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG.

Designed and named by the tuner's owner and head designer Kourosh Mansory, the SLS gets wrapped in a complete carbon shell for a 90 kg weight-saving diet and a substantially revised look.

The body kit includes a new lightweight roof and wing doors, front skirt with large air inlets, widening fenders that extend the SLS by 66 mm at the front axle and 84 mm at the rear axle, as well as side skirts that make the sport coupe appear lower. At the back is a rear spoiler with carbon flaps and a race diffuser for additional downforce.

Engine tuning consists of increasing output to 660 PS (485 kW / 651 bhp) while a performance upgrade to 800 PS (588 kW / 789 bhp) is also in the works.

For the wheels are 9 x 20 inch rims at the front with 265/30R20 Michelin tires and 11 x 21 inchers at the back wrapped in 295/25R20 Michelins.

New springs and dampers lower the SLS AMG by 20 mm too.

On the inside Mansory does its luxuriating thing with a hand fitted soft leather finish with decorative stitching, carbon trim, of course, a newly designed center console and other touches such as the aluminum pedals and sport steering wheel with a full-sized airbag.

The name, Cormeum, comes from an operatic aria called Vide Cor meum composed by Patrick Cassidy and based on a sonnet in Dante's "La Vita Nuova".


MANSORY Cormeum - super sports car in a striking carbon shell

The MANSORY Cormeum leaves few reminders of the Mercedes SLS AMG. The
sports car manufactured in Affalterbach is only the basis for the latest development of
the automobile manufacturer MANSORY Design & Holding GmbH situated in Brand
near Bayreuth. 660 hp and 90 kg less weight are only two unique selling points of
this exceptional automobile which can only be obtained in a limited edition of 15 cars.
At first glance, the striking design created by its owner and head designer Kourosh
Mansory can easily be discerned. Also the name was picked personally by Kourosh
Mansory: An aria was already the source of his inspiration for the refined Bugatti
Veyron (Vincerò) and this time this is the aria Vide Cor meum.

In order to meet the increased requirements of the sports car when it comes to
light weight and torsional stiffness, Kourosh Mansory's team optimises almost the
entire car body and also exchanges the roof and the wing doors with ultra-light own
developments. A MANSORY front skirt replaces the serial bumper and due to its
well-engineered shape it reduces the uplifting forces at the front axle. Larger air inlets
in connection with a new LED light unit provide the two-seater with an even more
dynamic face.

Additionally, the new front skirt supplies the enlarged cooler with more fresh air
and subsequently propels the air out of the new bonnet. MANSORY also replaces
the front and rear mudguards with broader newly designed light-weight parts.
Therefore, the Cormeum extends by 66 millimetres at the front axle and impressive
84 millimetres at the rear axle. MANSORY side skirts make the two-seater look even
lower and longer and perfectly enhance the rims. The rear has also been significantly
redesigned by the aerodynamic specialists. The apron has been exchanged and a
race diffuser renders additional downforce. A rear spoiler with carbon flaps completes
the aerodynamic overall package.

The extended wheel houses of the MANSORY Cormeum are filled with exclusive
forged wheels with central locking. They measure 9x20 inches with 265/30er tyres
at the front and 11x21 inches with 295/25er tyres at the rear axle. The tyres are
provided by MANSORY's partner Michelin. Due to new springs and dampers, the
Cormeum' s centre of gravity is 20 mm lower than the basic model and therefore
additionally emphasises the exclusive rims.

The core part of the engine modification is the adjustment of high-performance
compressors. Also a sports air filter and a sports exhaust system made of stainless
steel are fitted. These components are adjusted to each other with the help of a
new map for engine electronics. With a top performance of 660 hp / 485 kW and a
maximum torque of 4,850 r.p.m., the MANSORY engine exactly meets the wishes of
its ambitious motor sports clientele. Another performance increase up to 800 hp is
already tested.

As usual, MANSORY turns the interior into a highly functional control centre with
unsurpassable quality and innovative design. Only most exquisite materials are
used for the interior design and therefore render a high level of comfort. The leather
which is processed with masterly skill is very endurable and still extraordinarily soft.
The characteristic natural product with its special grain and the masterly perfected
decorative stitches render an extravagant impression around the newly designed
centre console. Another highlight is the newly developed full size airbag sports
steering wheel. The aluminium pedals and the real carbon applications complete the
luxurious overall impression of the Cormeum.

MMansory, if you wanna make a full carbon fiber for it, please based it on the original design. I just want Brabus to throw their 6.3 800hp engine on this car!

Even though they're ruined the original beauty of the SLS, paint it and lose the spoiler and I wouldn't mind it

Mansory have only produced one good-looking car: the Linea Vincero Bugatti. Anything they've laid their hands on before or since is just, to put it nicely, crap.
