MANSORY is famous for transforming luxury vehicles and sports cars into unique and exciting one-offs to enable their well-heeled owners from around the world to make the most of their free time. But now, Kourosh Mansory also has a solution for a car that needs a stylish working atmosphere: the Mercedes-Benz V-Class, which is now like a first class lounge for on-the-road.
MANSORY has added carefully selected components to improve the exterior of the van - the air ducts on the front apron feature integrated LED day-driving lights and are thus the perfect combination of aesthetics and function. The front lip sets a further accent, as does the mirror housing. The new diffuser at the rear bears the hallmarks of MANSORY’s high-quality tuning and the tailgates and roof spoiler surround the rear windshield to create the perfect form.
Once again, Kourosh Mansory has stayed true to his favourite materials. All the refinements have been made using carbon fibre created in the company’s own in-house autoclaves to create carbon components which never compromise on quality or design.
The external makeover is rounded off by elegant bi-colour paintwork and light-weight, CS.11 19 inch wheels.
The performance of the V-Class has also been upgraded: by optimising the series standard control device, MANSORY has unlocked the 250 D unit (series: 140kW/440Nm) to provide a mighty 39 kW extra as well enhanced torque of 500 Nm. Thanks to its extra power, the top speed has been increased by 11 km/h to 210 km/h.
The interior of MANSORY’s V-Class has been upgraded like no other model: naturally, the driver’s cabin has been refined and features a new airbag sports steering wheel, carbon shift paddles, aluminium pedals and dashboard, and the foot mat set ensures the true character of the vehicle is carried into the rear. The rear section has been made to feel like an executive lounge like those offered to travellers by the most prestigious airlines.
Between two comfort seats with reclining functions, the central console and its wavy design helps draw together the elegant design of the interior cabin. Fine woods featuring strong grains emphasise the tastefully designed style. An optional fridge with adjustable bottle holders can also be integrated.
The on-board electronic control system has also been attended to and is now hidden behind the wood panels. All business and relax functions are controlled using the central touch display, which includes Wi-Fi, seat functions, hands-free calling, and conference TV screen.
Two conference seats ensure additional variability and can be extended when needed to face the comfort seats. This means meetings can be held with up to four participants or the cabin can be turned into a generously proportioned 2-person space.
Alongside the ebony of the console and some features around the cabin, MANSORY uses the finest varieties of leather and carefully selected Alcantara to create a touch and feel that is matched by no other vehicle. The upholstery also showcases the masterful handiwork and the spirit of manufacturing excellence.
