Mansory Design & Holding introduces a full carbon composite version of the AMG G63 6X6, the 6-wheel off-road vehicle from Mercedes Benz.

In 2013, Mercedes Benz surprised the whole off-road scene with the AMG G63 6x6. At the product presentation, an off-road vehicle with these dimensions and a purchase price of Euro 379,000 nett seemed almost unsaleable. However, its success showed that the Stuttgart car company had got it right: in particular, oligarchs, oil sheiks and wealthy Chinese order the G special model offered by AMG in order to expand their fleet of exclusive vehicles. Even in the case of the 6x6, this elite clientele demand extensive customization and have their extreme off-road vehicles upgraded according to their personal taste.

Mansory uses its own range of upgrade products for the G63/G65 and supplements this with exclusive new developments. In addition to the body parts made of visible carbon and extensive interior modifications, the company also offers a generous increase in power output up to 840 PS. To this end, Mansory has completely reworked the AMG 8 cylinder twin turbo and installed genuine racing components. The pistons, connecting rods, big end bearings, crankshaft, cylinder head and many other parts now meet the high requirements of the company founder, Kourosh Mansory. Together with the newly designed exhaust system, from the manifold to the stainless steel double end pipes, outstanding performance data is achieved. Instead of 544 PS (400 kW), this modified version achieves a 840 PS (618 kW), while the maximum torque rises to an electronically limited 1,000 Newton metres.

However, it is not just the engine performance which gets an upgrade. The optics of the 6x6 also receive a revision: new main headlights are the centrepiece of the new light elements design. In combination with the new grille and bonnet, the front end is given a typical Mansory look. Visible carbon baked in the in-house autoclaves, is used and supplements the series-produced components made of carbon fibre: the company also manufactures the mirror housings, the engine side ventilators, rear skirt as well as the air guide elements of the front skirt out of ultra light composite material.

The company can also additionally upgrade the interior as well with carbon parts. In cooperation with the design department, our in house upholstery shop has implemented a carbon design with contrasting elements, which transfers the concept of the exterior to the interior of the vehicle.
