AMG – a sequence of letters that undoubtedly makes fans of the Mercedes brand go
into raptures. After all, it is the name of the Stuttgart brand’s in-house tuner based in
Affalterbach. Accordingly, the vehicles bearing the label always appear as highperformance top models ex works.
But despite all the standard power-more power is of course always possible and welcome.
The Wuppertal specialists at MANHART Performance
regularly prove this with their creations. The new GLR 700 based on
the Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S Coupé is no exception. The SUV sports car will be
produced as LIMITED 01/10 in an edition of only ten units.
As is customary with MANHART, the GLR 700 naturally also gives an indication of
its performance with its designation: instead of the standard 510 hp and 700 Nm, the
fabulous four-litre, biturbo eight-cylinder under the bonnet now generates a
whopping 707 hp and 905 Nm of maximum torque. Not only is the MANHART
performance kit with an ECU software remap responsible for this, but there is also a
turbo upgrade, a matching intercooler upgrade, a carbon intake and MANHART
sports downpipes with 300-cell cats, which, however, do not have TÜV approval and
are thus only intended for export. In addition to the enormous increase in power, the
transmission also receives an upgrade. On the chassis side, MANHART has also
upgraded the GLR 700: The car is about 30 millimetres lower, thanks to a revision of
the standard air suspension with new coupling rods.
Incidentally, the GLR 700 is instantly recognisable as a MANHART. After all, it
stands on the in-house Spider Line alloy wheels in 9×21 and 10.5×21 inches with
tyres in 265/40ZR21 and 295/35ZR21. On the car shown, they have a satin black
finish with gold rim decoration. Alternatively, any other desired configurations are
also possible. Also almost obligatory at MANHART is the vinyl decoration set with
gold trim stripes and lettering spread over the black paintwork. The black
Panamericana radiator grille is undoubtedly a perfect match. And the interior is
equally tastefully refined with all-new leather upholstery including gold accents and
an Alcantara headliner.
