Mansory build 530kW Mercedes-AMG GT S

German tuners build GT3-aping Merc

Mansory’s injected Mercedes-AMG GT S with an attitude usually reserved for GT3 cars.

The German tuning firm revealed overnight a GT-S with aggressive aero and power tweaks it’s specially created for a customer named ‘Bandar’.

Mansory claims the ‘remodelled’ wing “is an impressive testament to the urge – and ability – to take corners at race speeds.” Speeds, of course, determined by how brave you are with its fettled 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8. Larger turbochargers have been dropped in its vee, and with new filters and exhaust system the unit makes 537kW.

No word exists on a torque figure, but its 305/25 rear rubber should provide chance of taming its new outputs. And combined with 245/35 front treads, the Mansory GT S is said to sit lower than the stock car. But besides that no suspension tweaks have been made.
