A series-production CLS is already among the most exclusive vehicles on our streets – but it looks positively conventional beside the MANSORY wide-body version. From the up thrust-reducing body design to the powerful engine power and an elaborately designed interior, the customization specialist from Brand, near Bayreuth, Germany, has turned its attention to every aspect of the luxury body, bringing its exclusive customers' dream cars to life. The complete modification by the MANSORY carbon-fibre experts consists of extremely light autoclave-prepreg carbon fibre and, along with the front and rear wings, includes new side sill sets and cladding. This broadens the Coupé by 50 millimeters at the front axle and a stately 80 millimeters at the rear axle. The newly designed bonnet provides an optical and aerodynamic pièce de résistance for the front-on view. The front apron, with its proprietary daytime driving lights, provides an additional accent to the overall look. At the rear, too, the company's technicians have come up with something special to polish off the CLS modification: Under the new rear apron, MANSORY installs a powerful diffuser that simultaneously increases the vehicles down thrust in cooperation with the rear spoiler.
MANSORY drivers can look forward to a skillfully modified interior that easily matches the quality of the exterior look. Aluminum pedals and footrests supplement the elaborately designed full-leather upholstery, along with deluxe entry sills and floor mats with exclusive embroidery. In conjunction with the complete modification, the MANSORY saddlers enhance the interior with a set of tailored carbon-fibre components for the dashboard and center console. Masterful handycraft, individual styling and top quality are to be found wherever you look. The sports steering wheel, with its newly designed ergonomics, adds further highlights to the overall aesthetic.
Maintaining optimum contact with the road are 20-inch rims with 255/30ZR20 tyres at the front and 285/25ZR20 tyres at the rear. The sporty and elegant look of the ultralight forged wheels fills out the wheel arches perfectly.
The design of the MANSORY CLS not only looks sporty; the modification also has plenty to offer under the bonnet. From the V8 unit of the Mercedes-Benz CLS (5.5l, 557 PS, 700 Nm), the MANSORY engine technicians have managed to squeeze out 640 PS / 471 kW and a maximum torque of 900 Nm at 2,000 to 4,500 crankshaft revolutions. The modifications required for this include a newly programmed control unit, as well as a sports air filter for optimized oxygen supply to the high-performance engine.
