Mansory

Unlike most aftermarket companies, Swiss tuner Mansory rarely releases programs unless it has plans of showing them off in major auto shows.

But you can always count on it to have a presence in Geneva , in large part because a) it’s in its own stomping grounds, and b) it’s the biggest auto show of the year.

One of the programs Mansory has prepared for Geneva is a rather over-the-top program for the Mercedes G65 AMG . We’ve already established the tuner’s proclivity to use carbon fiber, something its Gronos program for the G65 AMG has in abundance.

The newly designed bodywork was made from ultra-light carbon, including the front splitter, which features LED daytime running lights and the front fairing that lays over it. It’s also worth noting that, despite the vehicle receiving multiple layers of Magic Yellow color paint, certain parts of the G65 AMG, particularly the roof, the mirror housings and the decorative trims, were left to show the carbon fiber design of the bodywork.

You’ll also notice that the G65 AMG is a little wider, something that can be attributed to the wider wings and side skirts, as well as the stretched wheel arches, netting an increase of 20 mm (0.78 inches) in width. Finally, a new set of 23-inch ten twin-spoke wheels wrapped in high-performance Vredestein Ultrac Vorti tires.

The interior is also the picture of Mansory tuning genius, particularly the dashboard and center console, which has been redesigned with more carbon-fiber components. The plush modification in those areas is complemented by the immaculate leather upholstered on the seats with matching Magic Yellow stitching.

Finally, there’s the engine, which Mansory was able to upgrade, thanks to the addition of a newly designed exhaust system, a new manifold, and a double stainless-steel tailpipes. Put together, the tuner was able to increase the output of the G65 AMG’s 6-liter V-12 engine to 840 horsepower with an electronically limited 738 pound-feet of torque.

When it comes to delivering enough carbon fiber to serve a lifetime, nobody does it more than Mansory.

If expressive programs are the name, Mansory is the game. At the 2013 Geneva Motor Show , the tuner is bringing a lineup of new programs, including one for the Bentley Continental , called the Sanguis.

In true Mansory fashion, the Sanguis program includes a newly designed front apron, a light carbon-fiber bonnet, carbon-fiber front wings, newly designed side sills and rear widening components that considerably reinforce the wide-body look of the Continental. Additionally, the new rear apron delivers additional downthrust and creates enough space for Mansory to install its new exhaust system. Rounding out the exterior modifications is a new set of 22-inch ultra-light forged wheels with 10 double spokes wrapped in Vredestein Ultrac Vorti tires.

Inside, the modifications include plenty of sport functionality and luxurious ambience with leather by master craftsmen predominantly used. A newly designed sport steering wheel was also added while the aluminum pedals, the door entry sills and the Makassar ebony wood elements round out what can only be described as an opulent reminder of what Mansory is capable of.

Speaking of what it’s capable of, no Mansory product comes without any power enhancements, which is why the Sanguis program also carries its own performance upgrade. Thanks to a new sports exhaust system, a new air filter and an optimized engine performance graph, Mansory was able to drive up the output of the Continental to 672 horsepower at 6,700 rpm and 575 pound-feet of torque at 1,700 rpm. All told, the Continental can now hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.5 seconds with a top speed of 200 mph.

Mansory is coming to the Geneva Motor Show with a new Carbonado program for the Lamborghini Aventador.

While this isn’t the first Carbonado program Mansory has made for the Aventador, it does come with some striking new components, including: a new front lip spoiler, a new front wing and bonnet, and Mansory-developed daytime running lights.

The program also includes newly designed side skirts with improved air intakes for increased ventilation of the front radiator. A diffuser is also built into the equally new rear spoiler, creating important control to the rear at high speeds. Rounding out Mansory’s Carbonado styling kit are the replacements for the roof and engine compartment with carbon-fiber versions and the installation of a new set of 21-inch ultra-light forged wheels with carbon-fiber inlays and wrapped in Pirelli P Zero tires.

When talking about a Mansory-dressed interior, naturally, only the finest of materials are used. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the aftermarket company used processed leather for the seats and the dashboard, a material that’s claimed to be "durable yet still extraordinarily soft.” Adding to the exclusivity of the leather treatment is the individual graining and perfect hand stitching. From there, Mansory added more carbon-fiber components on the doors, the fittings and the center console, installed non-slip aluminum pedals and repositioned the starter button from the center console to the roof lining.

In terms of performance, the Carbonado is a certified beast on four wheels, boasting of a comprehensive engine upgrade that includes the addition of two turbochargers, the replacement of a number of engine parts with racing parts and the installation of a newly designed exhaust system. All taken together, Mansory was able to increase the output of the supercar to a staggering 1,250 horsepower with an electronically-limited peak torque of 590 pound-feet.

All taken together, the Carbonado program allows the Aventador to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.6 seconds with a top speed of 236 mph.

It’s true that Mercedes doesn’t offer a convertible version for its G-Class lineup, but at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, Mansory wants to prove that a three-door cabrio body fits perfectly on the new-generation G500 . Like with all the other models the tuner is going to display in Geneva, the new Speranza also features a carbon-fiber body kit, an updated interior and an amazing update for the V-8 engine.

For the exterior, Mansory has installed wider wings that make the Speranza about 0.78 inches wider and in the same time they provide a more masculine look. Up front, the model received a new front bumper with integrated LED daytime running lights, a carbon-fiber bonnet and new headlights. For the rear, Speranza received a new rear spoiler and a spare wheel cover made of carbon fiber.

The package also requires new side skirts and new wheel arches that hide the new, forged 24-inch wheels in ten-twin-spoke design and wrapped in high performance 305/35 Vredestein Ultrac Vorti tires.

In order to increase the V-8’s output, the tuner installed new pistons, connecting rods, rod bearings, crankshaft, crank, cylinder head, plus a newly designed exhaust system with double stainless-steel tailpipes. The result is an output increased from the standard 385 horsepower up to 700 horsepower, while the peak torque is limited to 663 pound-feet.

Despite our general expectation, the Ferrari F12berlinetta has received numerous tuning kit since Ferrari dropped it onto the market last year. Mansory will increase this number with the unveiling of a new Stallone kit at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. The kit combines light carbon bodywork with an updated interior and the addition of 35 horsepower under the hood.

The aerodynamic kit starts with a completely redesigned front fascia featuring a newly designed bonnet, a down-force-generating front spoiler with special air intakes. The kit also includes new side skirts, a discreet rear wing and the integrated diffuser. The car will now sit on specially designed light forged wheels sized 21 inches at the front axle and 22 inches at the rear axle.

For the interior, Mansory combines the most exclusive leather with stylish stitching and carbon-fiber applications. There is also a new, sports steering wheel, aluminum pedals and illuminated door sill.

Under the hood, Mansory engineers have modified the ECU and added a sports exhaust system that together help increasing the V-12’s output from the standard 740 horsepower to 775 horsepower. Peak torque has also been improved from the standard 508 to 534 pound-feet of torque.

All we need to learn is the price for this conversion and we are going to place an order for it!

The new G-Class was dropped onto the market back in April, 2012 and since then only few tuners showed interest in updating this off-road-capable Benz. Mansory, however, seems to have been pretty impressed by the new G-Class, as they have prepared a new tuning kit that offers the SUV a sportier and significantly more individual note.

The kit starts with a pretty cool aerodynamic kit that includes a new front spoiler bumper with LED daytime running lights and a new radiator grille. The tuner also installed a new carbon-fiber hood, a new roof spoiler and a new rear diffuser. The taillights receive carbon-fiber light covers and new carbon-fiber mirror.

There is also a new sport exhaust system that delivers more imposing sound. The car sits on a set of one-piece light-alloy wheels sized 23 inches and wrapped in ultra-high-performance 305/30R23 Vredestein Ultrac Vorti tires.

For the interior, Mansory combined the finest materials with aluminum and carbon fiber applications.

With a price tag of over half a million dollars, which to a Dubai Sheikh is bread and butter, this example of Mansory’s take on the Lamborghini Aventador was spotted in the valet parking lot at one of the famous malls in Dubai (for those who know Dubai, it’s the Fashion Avenue at the Dubai Mall).

Unveiled at the 2012 Geneva Auto Show, this crazy Lambo is powered by a tuned (why?) version of the already-powerful 6.5 V12 that now produces 754bhp and 750Nm of torque, a subtle yet gut-wrenching increase from the standard 690bhp. How gut-wrenching, you ask? It rockets from 0-60mph in 2.8 seconds and, with the pedal hard on the floor, it’ll hit 220 mph without breaking a sweat.

Murdering performance aside, this Aventador sports bigger air vents, a custom-made ultralight forged rims with carbon fiber inlays, and a paint-job that is similar to the one that was sprayed on the Aventador J, the only car that trumps this when it comes to performance.

With numbers like these, we expect to write an article on "Mansory Lamborghini Aventador gets speeding ticket" or "Mansory Lamborghini Aventador crashes," if the owner decides to unleash that raging bull. Rest assured, it’s a car that will turn everybody’s head. If not the crazy-yet-cool design, then the screaming, fire-breathing V12 engine.

The Mercedes C-Class Coupe is one of the models with the fewest tuning packages. Thankfully Mansory picked up on that fact and have come out with a new tuning package that will upgrade both the exterior and interior of the luxury coupe.

The Mansory package starts off with a cool body kit that includes a new front grille, more pronounced front and rear wheels, new side skirts, and a new rear apron. All of these elements, along with the car’s engine bonnet, will be made out of carbon fiber. Any customers wanting more can benefit from Mansory’s additional features, including a new front bumper lip, vented bonnet, exterior mirror caps, and a new rear spoiler offered in a variety of options.

Just like the exterior, the interior is characterized by the use of carbon fiber. Mansory added a new sports steering wheel and new door sills, both made from the lightweight material.

Mansory has announced a very cool package for the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 . Called the "Carbonado," the new package is all about carbon fiber. It will be limited to only six units, so if you want one, you better hurry up!

Every single element of the new Carbonado package is made out of carbon fiber - a measure used to improve the car’s aerodynamics. The exterior kit includes a new front apron with optimized air inlets for improved ventilation of the front coolers, a new front lip, new front wings, a new bonnet, new side sills, a new apron, and an enlarged wing. The car’s roof and engine-compartment covers have also been replaced with new ones made of carbon fiber. The Aventador has also been extended by 40 millimeters in width on the front axle and by an impressive 50 millimeters on the rear axle. The final element of the exterior package is a new set of 20" ultralight forged rims with carbon-fiber inlays. The interior received the most luxurious of materials, a new sports steering wheel, non-slip aluminum pedals, and real carbon-fiber components.

Impressive changes were also made under the hood. Mansory used an optimized engine-management system and a high performance exhaust system to increase the 6.5-liter V12 engine’s output to 744 HP and the peak torque to 553 lbs-ft. The sprint from 0 to 60 mph is made in 2.8 seconds and the top speed has been increased to 220 mph.

The Top Marques Monaco is without question one of the most important dates on the tuning calendar, particularly because of the location it’s held at every year. Nothing speaks more to millionaires throwing their money around than Monte Carlo, and some of the best tuners use that platform to show off their latest programs.

Now that the 2012 Top Marques Monaco has come and gone, we can definitely say that the tuners in attendance gave us programs that were for the books. One in particular was Mansory , which only recently wowed us at Geneva with not one , not two , not three , but four programs for some of the finest exotics in the land.

For their Monaco offering, the Swiss tuner brought their very first program for the Ferrari 458 Italia Spyder , appropriately called "Monaco."

As you can expect, Mansory did some serious bodywork upgrades on the 458 Italia Spyder, complete with a body kit that’s made out of carbon fiber. The kit includes a restyled front apron with air inlets for the front coolers, a new bonnet, side skirts with integrated ducts, a rear skirt with an integrated diffuser, carbon blades that replace the rear window, and a rear wing. All told, the carbon fiber components shaved of 60 kg (132 lbs) from the supercar’s overall weight.

Under the hood of the Italian stallion, Mansory reprogrammed the ECU, the sports air filter, and the sport exhaust, translating to an increased output of 590 horsepower and 413 lb/ft of torque with a 0-62 mph time of 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 205 mph.

UPDATE 07/10/2012: Youtube user, Marchettino, was able to film the Mansory 458 Italia Monaco at an undisclosed auto show in France, providing a more in-depth look at the modified supercar. Check it out after the jump!
