Stick to what you know, Warren Buffett often says about running a successful business. And Mansory is damn sure sticking to what it knows: making cars look awful for rich people.

Photos don’t do the Mercedes-AMG GT justice. In person it’s a very striking, timelessly pretty sports car with classic proportions. But for nouveau-riche Jersey Shore bros, Russian mafiosi and other shady characters, that simply will not do; they turn to Mansory and Mansory delivers.

Why have the AMG GT’s simple, clean lines when you can massive fake-vented fender flares and a wing that probably did time as an extra in one of the lesser Fast & Furious movies? Why have the heritage and timeless recognition of the Mercedes badge when you can have a giant red “M” up front and back?

Why be tasteful at all?

Of their creation, Mansory says this:

Refining super cars is more than just a business for MANSORY. The attention to detail and the love of all that is special and unique is what drives us to produce out- of-the-ordinary automobiles. The latest stroke of genius of the company once again proves this in an impressive way. The MANSORY interpretation of the Mercedes AMG GT S with its exclusive and comprehensive refinement programme is enough to raise the blood pressure of true sports vehicle fans the world over.

The Devil Drives a Mustang (Rotary Pending)

The fact that “Samsung Galaxy Tab glued to the dash” is considered acceptable in a $130k grand tourer is proof that there is a God and his name is Loki.

I know this is not the first time I have brought this up, nor the second nor third. And it won’t be the last until this fad is buried 6 feet under.
