Mansory Transforms Mercedes G-Wagon Into Mean Green Coupe With Suicide Doors
This custom Mercedes G-Class stunner packs 900 horsepower.
Very few two-door SUVs are available in 2023, and none of them reside in the luxury segment. Thankfully the aftermarket specialists at Germany’s Mansory are expertly crafting two-door Mercedes G-Wagons and Lamborghini Uruses for the discerning drivers craving a sportier-looking ute.
While Mansory’s Urus-based “Venatus Evo S” resembles an especially attractive rally car, the G-Class-based “Gronos Evo S” is still immediately recognizable as a G-Wagon.
The B-pillar was moved to the rear to provide sufficient space for the rear-hinged “suicide” doors. All the door mountings also had to be moved from the A-pillar to the B-pillar in mirror image, a technical feat that Mansory says is more challenging than expected.
An almost-radioactive “Fludium Chrome Atmosphere” green paint job gets darker as the eyes move rearward while also covering the massive 24-inch wheels. All exterior pieces are available with armored paneling.
Mansory also installed the highest tune of Mercedes’ twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8, bestowing the Gronos Evo S with 900 horsepower and 885 pound-feet of torque. It’ll hit 62 mph in 3.3 seconds, which is over 2.5 seconds faster than stock.
Mansory doesn’t say much about the interior, but provided art shows that white diamond-quilted leather establishes a base for complementary leather beige inserts and brassy finishes on the steering wheel controls, door handles, AC vents and various pieces of the center console.
A folding mechanism for the front seats was equipped to make it easier for passengers to climb in to the rear, where the bench seat has been replaced with two luxe single seats. Mansory also provided its own sport steering wheel and black aluminum pedals, as well as a host of badging.
