2011 Mansory Cormeum news, pictures, and information
MANSORY Cormeum – super sports car in a striking carbon shellThe MANSORY Cormeum leaves few reminders of the Mercedes SLS AMG. The sports car manufactured in Affalterbach is only the basis for the latest development of the automobile manufacturer MANSORY Design & Holding GmbH situated in Brand near Bayreuth. 660 hp and 90 kg less weight are only two unique selling points of this exceptional automobile which can only be obtained in a limited edition of 15 cars. At first glance, the striking design created by its owner and head designer Kourosh Mansory can easily be discerned. Also the name was picked personally by Kourosh Mansory: An aria was already the source of his inspiration for the refined Bugatti Veyron (Vincerò) and this time this is the aria Vide Cor meum.
In order to meet the increased requirements of the sports car when it comes to light weight and torsional stiffness, Kourosh Mansory's team optimises almost the entire car body and also exchanges the roof and the wing doors wîth ultra-light own developments. A MANSORY front skirt replaces the serial bumper and due to its well-engineered shape it reduces the uplifting forces at the front axle. Larger air inlets in connection wîth a new LED light unit provide the two-seater wîth an even more dynamic face.
Additionally, the new front skirt supplies the enlarged cooler wîth more fresh air and subsequently propels the air out of the new bonnet. MANSORY also replaces the front and rear mudguards wîth broader newly designed light-weight parts. Therefore, the Cormeum extends by 66 millimetres at the front axle and impressive 84 millimetres at the rear axle. MANSORY side skirts make the two-seater look even lower and longer and perfectly enhance the rims. The rear has also been significantly redesigned by the aerodynamic specialists. The apron has been exchanged and a race diffuser renders additional downforce. A rear spoiler wîth carbon flaps completes the aerodynamic overall package.
The extended wheel houses of the MANSORY Cormeum are filled wîth exclusive forged wheels wîth central locking. They measure 9x20 inches wîth 265/30er tyres at the front and 11x21 inches wîth 295/25er tyres at the rear axle. The tyres are provided by MANSORY's partner Michelin. Due to new springs and dampers, the Cormeum' s centre of gravity is 20 mm lower than the basic model and therefore additionally emphasises the exclusive rims.
The core part of the engine modification is the adjustment of high-performance compressors. Also a sports air filter and a sports exhaust system made of stainless steel are fitted. These components are adjusted to each other wîth the help of a new map for engine electronics. With a top performance of 660 hp / 485 kW and a maximum torque of 4,850 r.p.m., the MANSORY engine exactly meets the wishes of its ambitious motor sports clientele. Another performance increase up to 800 hp is already tested.

As usual, MANSORY turns the interior into a highly functional control centre wîth unsurpassable quality and innovative design. Only most exquisite materials are used for the interior design and therefore render a high level of comfort. The leather which is processed wîth masterly skill is very endurable and still extraordinarily soft. The characteristic natural product wîth its special grain and the masterly perfected decorative stitches render an extravagant impression around the newly designed centre console. Another highlight is the newly developed full size airbag sports §teering wheel. The aluminium pedals and the real carbon applications complete the luxurious overall impression of the Cormeum.
