So I decided to upgrade my Mercedes AMG Coup and who better to do it for me than the good folks at Mansory? I told them “Pimp my Ride” and here is what they gave me in return: The AMG Coupe Diamond Edition! Let’s talk about the upgrade… We’ll start with the technical stuff first and talk about the more subjective areas like interior and exterior design for later. Now, the S63 AMG is no underdog when it comes to power and torque, but Mansory went from good to a whole lot better after managing to squeeze 985 HP and 1,400 Nm of torque (1,032 lb-ft) from the beast’s 5.5-liter V8.
Before the upgrade, the S63 AMG had 585 HP and 900 Nm (664 lb-ft) of torque at its disposal but mad tuning scientist Mansory were unimpressed with that so they used the M1000 kit to provide a new ECU, turbocharger, suction and compression system and other mechanical gimmicks that worked a charm on the sleek coupe.
And now, the design. I told them that blue was my favorite color so they should try to keep a blue theme going. And that’s exactly what they they did. The exterior displays a matte blue paint job coupled with a wide body kit that beef-up the coupe thanks to new bumpers, flared wheel arches and vented hood and fenders, reminding of a Black Series version. On the inside, the exterior color theme is enthusiastically continued, but one thing’s for sure: I will never be feeling blue in this car!
Exhibit would be so proud… oh yeah, photo credits go to Mansory and S. Baladauf
