AMG is known for building tricked out tarmac scorchers out of regular Mercs and size has never been a limiting factor for them. Mansory on the other hand likes them big and fat and the German tuning house makes sure these cathedrals can propel to illegal speeds before you can even blink. No wonder, then, that Mansory laid its hands upon the Mercedes-AMG GLS 63, the most powerful GLS yet and turned it into a stealthy torpedo.
Mansory, as usual, has cleverly retained the essence of the Mercedes design while adding the raucous Mansory touches at the right places. Look closely and almost hidden in the satin matte black hue, you will find the wide-body kit that blends into the original design. The wide-body kit gives it an even wider stance complemented by the custom forged 23-inch alloy wheels. The air dam in the front is focussed on channelling all the air to the massive radiators and brakes while also providing the required downforce, thanks to the lip spoiler.
If you think all these aero props are unnecessary, take a look at the numbers of the Mansory GLS 63 and you will know. Mansory has pumped 830bhp of power from the 5.5-litre turbocharged V8 engine. A remapped ECU, intake, exhaust and bigger turbochargers have helped the power figures move up from the 577bhp stock and has also boosted the torque output to a whopping 1150Nm of torque. AMG-spec all-wheel drive and the eight-speed automatic gearbox are standard and while Mansory hasn’t given out any numbers, this behemoth will certainly better the 4.6 seconds the standard GLS 63 takes for the 100kmph sprint from standstill.
And that is not all. The interiors have been entirely redone in hand-stitched leather upholstery that wraps almost the entire cabin in bespoke luxury. The carbon fibre inserts on the steering, the dashboard and the door trims give the cabin its dose of sportiness. Well, the price is on request but in India, it hardly matters as the three-pointed star is yet to introduce the GLS 63 to the subcontinent, without which, getting the Mansory GLS63 in would be quite a task.
