Posted on Monday, March 22, 2010

Mercedes-Benz G55The off-road conformist Mercedes-Benz of G-class, despite it is far not youthful age, still excites minds of tuners of all world. Though, apparently, well as still it is possible to improve this car which for the long life had time to try on hundreds various of tuning, beginning from an army uniform and finishing a strict suit of the security guard of the first persons of the state. But here carbon dress was not offered still by anybody. Except for one of not most ordinary German tuning studioMansory.

If speech has come about a new suit Germans have called the person a good judge of such affairs – the designer of clothes and furniture Philipp Plein. This couturier has outlined sketches of an ex-terrier and an interior for the car-donor – Mercedes-Benz G55 AMG, and experts Mansory have embodied its ideas in metal. That is in carbon as the body of the car which have received name Mansory G-Couture, is completely executed from carbon. "Ladles" of lobbies and rear seats (the car became four-seater) are made of the same material, a front panel and some elements of an interior. Not less thoroughly Germans have approached to "bleeding" of the power unit. If to open a cowl three magic letters – SLR are evident. It means that in Mansory have decided to equip an off-road car with 5,4-litre compressor "eight" from super car SLR McLaren. And, thanks to the new compressor, the restitched control package the engine and new system of an admission/release, the engine power managed to be hoisted to 700 h.p. and 880 Nm.

From other distinctive features of the car – the dual branch pipes of an exhaust system deduced under thresholds and original 23-inch disks with low-profile rubber Pirelli Scorpion dimension 305/35 R23. The interior, besides mentioned above carbon armchairs, sports the leather white-black furnish, new toolkit, aluminium pedals, and the sports wheel and a front panel are fitted by a skin … a python.

Germans do not inform the price for the car. For Mansory already began kind tradition not to extend on such "trifles". Mere mortals buy such car all the same cannot, as it will is exhausted in number of only seven copies, well and the one who nevertheless can master similar purchase, will address directly in tuning studio where with them will share any their interesting information. But clearly one – if you interests the price you do not presume to yourselves this car.
