There’s plenty of competition looming around in terms of tuning kits for the BMW X5 , such as the BMW X5 M Typhoon by G-Power and the upgrades provided by Superchips for various BMW models. Upgrades like these may be hard to compete with, but after completing the kit for the Maserati GranTurismo , Mansory had a little time on their hands to tackle the luxury SUV. Their attempt at jazzing up left it with both interior and exterior upgrades, plus a boost in the performance department.
The exterior package includes a very sporty front spoiler with big cooling air inlets, an extra light engine bonnet made entirely from carbon, new side skirts, a new roof spoiler made in carbon fiber, new back-spoilers with an integrated diffuser, and a sport exhaust system with four stainless-steel tailpipes. The exterior package is finished by silver monoblock cast wheels. The interior gets a newly designed sports steering wheel, leather, and carbon fiber inserts.
As for the engine, it has been upgraded to deliver a total of 670 hp and 950 Nm at a rate of 5900 Umin. The result is a sprint from 0 to 60mph made in only 4.2 seconds and a top speed of 186 mph. Unfortunately for Mansory, the boost in horsepower was nothing compared to the 725hp provided by G-Power. Maybe next time, Mansory.
Press release after the jump.
For the very first time MANSORY Switzerland AG presents an individualized programme for current BMW models. The X5 will be the first model of the white-blue brand to be treated to an extensive refinement process. “The X5 is just the beginning,” announced Managing Director Michael Stein. “In response to the many requests of our importers and customers, we will very shortly be developing an exclusive programme for the bodywork, performance and interior of other selected BMW models. Other fascinating refinements for the BMW X6 as well as for the BMW 7 series are soon to follow.”
In the development stages, MANSORY Switzerland AG attaches great importance to both individual design as well as to precisely tailored workmanship. The programme for the SUV X5 has already skilfully set these standards. Stylish coordinated components make the broadly-built frame a real eye-catcher. An integral part of the imposing front structure is a very sporty front spoiler with big cooling air inlets. An extra light engine bonnet made entirely from carbon optimises the supply of fresh air to the front motor with ventilating channels. MANSORY individualization achieves a unique appearance with much broader fenders, which create an entity with the newly fitted side skirts. With an additional vehicle width of 70 millimetres at the front and 80 millimetres at the back, the MANSORY X5 conveys the message of pure power, even when stationary.
The back-spoilers have also been newly designed with an integrated diffuser, making space for the four stainless-steel tailpipes of the sport exhaust system. These fit the vehicle’s new image of masculinity perfectly. Further features made from exposed carbon give the refining process the finishing touches. This includes amongst others the roof spoiler, which provides additional downforce and improves the stability of the vehicle at high speeds. The new aerodynamic components are largely manufactured by the engineers out of MANSORY characteristic prepeg-autoclave carbon. This enables an almost perfect surface quality with minimal weight.
The striking appearance of the MANSORY-SUV is assisted by a wide range of performance kits for the standard engines. The highlight is a vigorous upgrade for the BMW X5 M aggregate. Approximately 670 hp /493kW and a torque of 950 Nm at a rate of 5900 Umin (series: 555 hp / 408 kW and 680 Nm at a rate of 1500 – 5650 Umin) results from the use of a completely new exhaust system along with headers as well as optimised engine electrics. Thanks to these changes, the 4x4 accelerates in only 4.2 seconds to a speed of 100 km/h and achieves a maximum speed of 300 km/h.
MANSORY provides an alloy rim especially made to meet the requirements of the BMW-SUV, which is significantly better for handling and additionally sharpens the vehicle’s optics. The silver monoblock cast wheels with the description M10 are fitted with tyres of the dimension 315/25R23, which guarantee proper grip. In connection with lowering the vehicle’s centre of gravity by 40mm with sport springs on the front axle as well by 40 mm on the back axle with adjusted vehicle height, the masculine appearance of the MANSORY X5 is glamorously rounded off. In addition, the sports suspension improves handling. A sports break system with larger discs and multi-piston brake callipers is already being tested.
An interior highlight is the newly designed sports steering wheel, which ergonomically leaves no question unanswered. Whether stylish or sporty, MANSORY Switzerland offers the required solution for every taste of interior design. All special fittings are individually manufactured to meet your needs and are integrated into your vehicle by professionals.
