A Mercedes-Benz S-Class is supposed to be the luxury sedan that sets the standards of refinement, innovation, and power. What it’s not supposed to be is terrifying, but tuning firm Mansory didn’t see things that way.
The result is a murdered-out S63 AMG that’s been modded to produce 1,000 horsepower. Yes, you read that right the first time.
Mansory makes this possible with an M1000 performance kit, which includes modifications like a new crankshaft, turbo, suction and compression system, and new pipe fan manifolds, conceived in-house. All these things combined give the 5.5-liter eight-cylinder engine a boost from an already substantial 577 horsepower to a mind-blowing 1,000 hp and 1032.5 pound-feet of torque.
A lower-powered M800 pack is also available, giving the luxury sedan 800 hp and 885 pounds of torque, which would be a substantial improvement in and of itself, but if you’re going big, go all the way.
Drivers who have made peace with the earthly realm can take the modded Mansory off the line in 3.2 seconds and up to an electronically limited 186 mph. Exterior additions are a modified front fascia that adds LED running lights to the font spoiler, widened front wings, and a new bespoke hood cover. New side skirts as well as a diffuser-style rear apron round out the body updates.
The interior maintains the Mercedes-Benz standard of elegance but don’t think it’s limited to that. Mansory adds a new, sportier steering wheel and aluminum pedals for the driver, but can also customize the rest of the interior with whatever wood, leather or precious gems buyers see fit to bedazzle their monstrous Mansory Mercedes with.
There’s only nine places throughout the world where Mansory sells its wares, but we suspect those in the market for this customized S-class aren’t the type of folks who hear the word “no” too often.
