This is the new Garia Mansory Currus golf cart that will be launched at the Geneva Motor Show this week. This is not the first time that the Finnish custom NEV maker Garia has teamed up with German auto tuning company Mansory to produce a high-end golf cart.
This latest roadster model seems to be inspired by current supercar design in that it features carbon bodywork, high-tech electronics and excellent performance. The Currus brings the latest in battery technology to the world of golf cars, as it’s fitted with lithium batteries that give an extended range of up to 37 miles (60km) and a top speed of 37MPH (60KPH). Unfortunately that top speed is not available in the US market and the cart is only street legal in Europe.
Anders Lynge, designer and creative director for Garia, said: “The Garia Roadster is really the closest you get to a golf car version of your favorite luxury sports car. We were inspired by the sense of freedom and joy you get from riding a sports car and we wanted to translate that experience to the golf car.”
Just like the latest Ferrari’s and Lamborghini’s the Currus has a digital instrument panel and there are three different driving modes that can be chosen – golf, street and race – which adjusts its top speed and acceleration. There’s also an adjustable setting for maximum motor braking and battery regeneration.
Only 7 of these high-end carts are going to be made and each one will be unique as their owners will be able to specify their own custom options.
Garia are able to customize this golf cart in every respect, and they even created pink cart for LPGA golfer Paula Creamer who is the official Garia Ambassador.
The Garia Mansory Currus costs $75,000 and will be launched at the 83th International Geneva Motor Show, March 7-17 2013. See the Garia Mansory Currus in booth 6250.
