In 2013, two of the most innovative developers in the world of transportation teamed up to create the most luxurious, unique and performance-minded golf cart in the industry: the Garia Mansory Currus. This golf cart was launched simultaneously with the Roadster as a limited-edition version carrying all of the high-end features available from the newly formed Garia Mansory Accessory program.
The Currus was officially launched at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. News of its release spread quickly throughout the industry because there has never been a vehicle like it. People from professional golfers to supercar enthusiasts grew very excited to sit in one, take it for a drive, add one to their collection or buy it to upgrade your prestige status instantly on the golf course.
“The Garia Roadster is the closest you get to a golf-car version of your favorite luxury sports car,” said Anders Lynge upon its release. Anders is the creative director of Garia and chief designer of the Currus. “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.”
The only problems were that the edition was limited to seven pieces, and the initial price was about as much as a new Porsche, a company to which Garia has often been likened. However, the primary purpose of the Currus is to be not only a vehicle for people and golf equipment but also a vehicle for showcasing the customization options from Garia Mansory. Even if these seven units are all accounted for, it is still possible to have a Garia Roadster customized to nearly identical specifications.
When Garia began collaborating with Mansory, famous for accessorizing and customizing some of the most luxurious vehicles from Bentley, Rolls-Royce, and Ferrari, it was assured that they would deliver a vehicle like none before it. While the Currus is categorized as a golf cart or low-speed vehicle (LSV), it has the feel of a racecar, and at the time, it was the fastest LSV on the market.
What makes the Currus so special, however, is that it is fitted with a three-tier performance selector that allows it to be used in virtually any environment. If you are taking it to the links, you can set it on the lowest tier, which is Golf mode. If you need a little more speed and control for driving in the city, all that is required is to turn the dial to the Street setting. The highest setting, Race mode, opens the true power of the car’s lithium-ion batteries.
In Race mode, the Currus has a top speed of 37 mph and a range of 37 miles on a full charge. The lithium batteries have the additional benefit of an exceedingly speedy recharge time. Fortunately, these batteries are now available on all Garia golf carts and LSVs, but the three-mode performance selector is unique to the limited-edition models.
The Currus is not unlike other golf carts when it comes to size. The vehicle is 92 inches in length by 48 inches wide, and it is 47.5 inches in height. Garia defends its size by alerting consumers that it is perfect to take aboard a yacht so that it can be used to cruise around urban centers while docked. It is important to note that because of its high top speed, the Currus is not street legal in most of the United States. However, it still meets all of the specifications to be street legal in European Union countries and many others around the world.
While the Currus is full of powerful, advanced features and is already incredibly versatile, it can still be further personalized with several options and performance accessories.
“Many of our customers want to stand out from the rest and truly appreciate products that allow them to express their personality and individuality,” said Lynge. “With our new luxury accessories, we can meet that need by offering a golf and leisure car that is fully customizable according to the clients’ tastes – in a quality that matches their supercar.”
Kourosh Mansory, the owner of Mansory Design, also released a statement concerning the customization options for the Currus. “We specialize in luxury car customizations, and that is what we are passionate about,” he said. “The Garia is a perfect match for us because it, like all other cars we work with, really sets the benchmark in its industry.”
The standard color for Garia LSVs is white, but you can upgrade to cream or red. Or you can choose from five metallic colors: Topaz Light, Sapphire Blue, Emerald Green, Graphite Grey and Diamond Black. The waterproof leather seats are available in cherry, walnut, and oak, and the 10-inch aluminum wheels can be upgraded to 12-inch silver or chrome wheels.
Also, the body is made of chrome, and most accessories are fabricated from durable, attractive carbon fiber.
