Why would anyone think this is a good idea?
The FrankfurtMotor Show has been a hit, for the most part. But the Mansory Gronos BlackEdition is not a win. The Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG is a vehicle that’s unlike anythingelse on the road and it doesn’t require an insane body kit to draw moreattention to itself. Unfortunately, Mansory had another idea and gave the beasta face that only a mother could love. In terms of performance, the tuning company modified the 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 to produce 828 hp and an electronically controlled figure of 737 lb-ft of torque, which was a good idea.
To getto that amount of power, Mansory installed new connecting rods, pistons, bigend bearings, cylinder heads, a new crankshaft and more. There’s also a newexhaust system with stainless steel double end pipes. So far so good, right? WhereMansory messed up is with the styling changes. The wheel arches have beenwidened to go along with the new front fascia that includes new headlights, acustom Mansory badge, LED DRLs, as well as revised intakesand grilles.
