    Mansory ups the scare factor on AMG's GLS 63

    We’re not the only publication that sometimes refers to AMG products as sledgehammers; but you can trust Mansory to make Mercedes-AMG’s GLS 63 top dog SUV even more brutal.

    The Mansory treatment starts with a high-flow sports air filter, a free-breathing sports exhaust system and proprietary ECU mapping, boosting the 5.5-litre twin-turbo V8 from 430kW and 760Nm to a claimed 618kW and 1150Nm, and top speed from 250km/h to a downright scary 295.

    But it’s the wide-body kit really says it all, from the custom bonnet and gaping air intakes in the new front apron, with integrated daytime running lights and clear lacquered carbon-fibre splitter, to the dramatic wheel-arch flares – 25mm in front and 400mm at the rear – over ultra-light 23 inch Mansory Y5/1 forged-alloy rims shod with 305/35 gumballs.

    Side flares, specially designed to reduce wind roar, lower and stretch the GLS’ profile, while airflow over the tailgate is controlled by a rear spoiler and a custom diffuser.

    Mansory also re-maps the standard air suspension, lowering the ride height (and the centre of gravity) by as much as 30mm for ‘significantly improved handling during fast cornering’.
    The interior is trimmed in specially selected fine leather; even the standard AMG multifunction sports steering wheel is refinished in the Mansory trim shop with fine leather and carbon-fibre, for a more luxurious feel while retaining all the functionality of the original.

    Regardless of the aesthetics, it’s a very intimidating package; if you saw this coming up behind you in your rear view mirror on the autobahn, you’d get out of the way, right? We would.

    Next Mercedes-Benz GLS to share S-Class autonomous tech

    Range-topping SUV will be the most luxurious and spacious model in Mercedes’ line-up

    Mercedes-Benz has been caught testing its next-generation GLS on public roads around 18 months before the SUV hits the market.

    The successor to Mercedes’ current range-topping SUV can be seen sporting a design similar to that of the smaller and also recently spotted new GLE, which is due next year.

    The GLS’s significantly larger scale is emphasised by its boxier rear section, although part of this is due to cladding applied to the development car to hide its design.

    Like the current GLS, the next-gen car will share many parts with the S-Class, including its powertrains. The S-Class gets six and eight-cylinder turbocharged petrol engines, a six-cylinder turbo diesel and a petrol-electric hybrid, so expect a similar line-up with the GLS.

    Key to the engine line-up’s latest improvements is a 48V electric system that uses an electric booster compressor and integrated starter generator to enable mild hybrid running.

    At the top of the range will be a GLS 63 with AMG’s twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 powerplant, likely with the same 612bhp on offer as in the S63.

    Much of the SUV’s in-car tech will also be carried across from the S-Class, including its autonomous features. The 2017 S-Class introduced Mercedes’ latest Distronic Active Proximity Control and Active Steer Assist systems, which can automatically accelerate and brake the car within posted speed limits while providing autonomous steering for periods of up to 30sec.

    Mercedes-Maybach GLS on course to face Bentley Bentayga in 2019

    Luxurious SUV will make its debut in April and go on sale in 2019 priced above £120k

    Mercedes-Benz’s upmarket Maybach sub-brand is preparing to extend its line-up beyond the S-Class with a plush range-topping version of the upcoming third-generation GLS (formerly GL).

    Maybach is considered an important brand for Mercedes to develop given the rising demand for luxury models, particularly in the SUV sector, with rivals such as Bentley and Land Rover having notable success with their respective Bentayga and Range Rover.

    Mercedes has also seen strong growth from its AMG performance arm, which achieved 131,970 sales in 2017, and it would like to emulate this success with Maybach on a smaller but profitable scale.

    The SUV, which was reported to be on the cards by Autocar in 2016, is set to make its debut as a lightly veiled concept car at the Beijing motor show in April. It will then be revealed in production guise at the Los Angeles motor show in November. The car is tipped to be priced above £120,000 when sales begin in 2019.

    The new Mercedes-Maybach GLS will build on initiatives taken with the two-year-old Mercedes-Maybach S-Class (below).

    The new Maybach SUV will share the same basic aluminium and steel bodyshell and advanced four-wheel- drive underpinnings as less heavily specified versions of the new GLS. However, Autocar has been told its upmarket positioning will be underlined by a series of subtle exterior design tweaks and a significantly more luxurious interior than standard versions of the US-built SUV.

    Insiders involved in the development of the Mercedes-Maybach concept car, known internally as the Maybach 9, say it will not only preview the look of the new model, with a bold new grille among the elements aiming to provide it with added exclusivity, but will also highlight the sort of upmarket features, including autonomous driving functions, to be offered on the production version of the SUV.

    A high-level official told Autocar: “We have been quietly surprised by the sales success of the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class, which is proving extremely popular in many key markets. The plan now is to extend the exclusivity surrounding the Maybach name into the upper end of the SUV segment. We’re confident this new model will leave little to be desired in terms of luxury.”

    The basis for the new GLS is Mercedes-Benz’s MHA (Modular High Architecture) platform. A development of the existing MRA platform, it is intended to underpin a series of new models, including the new GLE and GLE Coupé.

    It provides a significant reduction in kerb weight, the capability to support a 48V electrical architecture and the very latest in radar, camera and sensor-supported driving functions.

    The Maybach-badged GLS is likely to be offered exclusively with the Mercedes-AMG-developed M177 V8 petrol engine. In the recently launched S560, this twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8 produces 462bhp, setting up the possibility of the new model being called GLS 560 for production.

    The new engine, which features a cylinder-shutdown function for added fuel savings in city driving, will replace the twin-turbo 4.7-litre V8 used by today’s GLS 500.

    Also under discussion for the new Mercedes-Maybach model is the plug-in petrol-electric drivetrain recently unveiled in the S560e. It combines Mercedes’ new turbocharged and electronic supercharged 3.0-litre in-line six-cylinder petrol engine, developing 362bhp, with a 121bhp electric motor. In the new GLS, it is claimed to use a lithium ion battery for a pure-electric range of up to 31 miles.

    With the GLS produced exclusively at Mercedes’ Tuscaloosa plant in Alabama, the luxury SUV will be the first Maybach model to be produced in the US.

    As well as providing stiff competition to the Bentayga, the Maybach GLS has also been conceived as a rival to the likes of the Rolls-Royce Cullinan and Range Rover SVAutobiography.

    Meanwhile, Mercedes-Maybach is planning to launch an upgraded version of the S560 at the Geneva motor show in March. Among the changes planned for the saloon is a newly designed grille that will set the tone for all future Maybach-badged models.
