OK, we've seen some of their previous work so we probably shouldn't have expected much more this time around, but when we heard that Mansory had gotten its hands on an SLR and a Ferrari 599 GTB, we certainly hoped that it would figure out a way to enhance their gotta-have-it quotients. Alas, our prayers went unanswered. Done up in a matte gold and black combo, the SLR looks a bit toy-like, but it should manage to sell in the single digits at least. Which digit you choose to count the sales is up to you. The Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano had actually been criticized in some camps for being a bit too evocative of the Chevrolet Corvette when it was first shown. The Mansory edition done up in white and carbon fiber looks even more Vette-like to our eyes. Thoughts of a ZR1 or the recent 427 special edition Z06 leapt to mind. There was also a Phantom in the booth, but quite honestly, doing something outrageous to a Roller just doesn't offend us as badly. Take a look at the gallery and let us know if you agree. We've already heard from at least one other journo who happened to be winding his way down the road towards us that the 599 looks seriously racy and that we are dead wrong about it. We'll let you decide for yourselves. Click away.

      Mansory sucks.

        Seriously. No.

        They were headed in the right direction but completely F'ed it all up. Especially that 599. The benz's body work looks excellent but the color choice is retarded. they should of made it a real deep-dark blue metallic, almost black. Put some multi spoke batmobile type wheels on it (deepdish, yes chrome) and left the side pipes chromed. Im gonna photoshop this thing up proper.

        I admire Mansory but this is unacceptable.

      The front of the SLR certainly looks better than stock. The lines are much cleaner; the design more cohesive. The rear has too many colours and shapes going on and is too 'busy' for my liking.

        What i hate most about the SLR is the blending they did where the gold and the black meet, its like they forgot to tape off and are stuck with tons of over-spray. awful.

        @Alex looks closer..there is no black color... it is simple unpainted carbon..they simple show the technic under the color... nice idea..

        I like the SLR a lot and the color chose is profocant... better as the all black and silver SLR..

        @nagmashot: All the same, i think a clean line between the two would have looked... well, cleaner. This just looks sloppy in my mind.

      did they jsut use the same front bumper in both of them with very minor changes?

      what's that for, trying to see which car looks better wwith thesame bumper?

      i think they messed up the 599

      but did pretty good with the SLR

      Personally in my point of view i think hey did a decent job on SLR, but the 599 ehh... i dont know about that one.

      Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But i can certainly appreciate the craftsmanship. I like the SLR's lack of chrome.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Hey the SLR actually looks like a supercar now.
      • 6 Years Ago
      I especially love the SLR in Toyota/Honda/Hyundai/Nissan "Beige Mist Metallic..." UGH!!
      • 6 Years Ago
      these are straight out of need for speed or something. I think the colors are off, but otherwise they aren't bad for this type of thing.

      Can you people quit criticizing and take into consideration that Mansory didn't build this car for you guys, he built the car HE wanted to have.
