2010 Geneva Auto Show: Mansory G-Couture

The name Mansory quickly catches the attention of every car enthusiast out there, especially if taking into account that the German tuning house has became famous thanks to a number of very exclusivist creations. However, what we have here is a really state-of-the-art exercise, the so-called G-Couture, a model created with the help of fashion designer Philipp Plein.

Now, don't get too excited because production will be actually limited to 7 (seven) units, with pricing details yet to be disclosed. Still, don't expect the car to come cheap so, unless you're at least Bill Gates' nephew, you should stop dreaming about it.

The exterior of the car is just like you'd expect from Mansory: stylish and luxurious.The entire exterior up to the lower window edge and the roof of the SUV are made of carbon, which also contribute to the overall performance of the car.

“By using the autoclave-prepreg-method, the carbon is compressed so strongly in a special pressure chamber that no more air inclusions remain in the material. Normally, this processing method is only used in aviation and aerospace, as it is very cost-intensive,”
the company explained.

As for technical specifications, Mansory says it replaced most parts with high-performance components from the Mercedes-Benz SLR, which made the car capable of developing 700 hp (515 kW) as compared to 507 hp (373 kW) of the G 55 AMG. Furthermore, the maximum torque has been increased from 700 to 880 Newton meters.

Additionally, the car boasts high-performance tires Pirelli Scorpion in the dimension 305/35 R 23, back seat integrated monitors which are connected to the DVD entertainment system plus interior applications made of real python skin in silver and crowned with G-Couture logos in the head rests.
