The Garia Mansory Currus is a 37-mph ‘golf car’ that costs the same as a Corvette

Garia Mansory Currus
What do you get when you combine a German tuner famous for shoving 1,600-horsepower engines into Lamborghinis with a Danish luxury golf cart manufacturer? Why you get a 37-mph, $55,000 ‘golf car,’ of course.

The Garia Mansory Currus is currently being showcased at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, and even beside the countless supercars, one-offs, and buzzing tech displays at the event, the little fairway ferry stands out.

Born from a collaboration between Garia and the insane gearheads over at Mansory, the Currus is unlike any golf cart before. The ‘roadster’ features a carbon fiber rear body, leather dashboard, custom stitched seats, and in true Mansory fashion, speed.

Garia Mansory Currus

The little thing’s lithium-ion battery pack provides a top speed of 37 mph and a range of 37 miles. The vehicle is actually road-legal in Europe as well, evidenced by the seat belts, windscreen, turn signals, and side mirrors.

Only 7 examples of the Currus will be made, and although pricing hasn’t been released yet, industry rumblings peg the golf car at around $55,000, the same you’ll pay for a 2015 Corvette Stingray.

So, it looks you’ve got some tough decisions to make. Which vehicle do you buy? One comes with a 460-horsepower V8 and can hit 60 mph in 3.8 seconds. The other cannot hit 60 mph at all, but boasts a three-way speed switch to adjust engine braking, battery regeneration, and acceleration parameters. It also gets way, way better gas mileage.

Garia Mansory Prism

Also on display in Geneva is the Garia Mansory Prism (above), which is the Z06 to the Currus’ Stingray. “The fastest and lightest Garia ever made,” the path-focused Prism can travel from 0 to 25 mph in less than 2.0 seconds.

The cost for the added speed? A very reasonable and not at all ridiculous $83,042. Better skip the back nine.
