When it comes to the tuning firm, Mansory, we’re already used to seeing some of the most amazing tuning packages, and their latest kit for the BMW X6 M is no exception. True to Mansory’s style, the tuner has modified just about everything there was to modify on the vehicle: bodywork, performance, and interior.
The exterior package includes a new front spoiler with larger air intakes and an extra light bonnet made entirely of carbon. Newly designed side skirts, a newly designed rear skirt, and a roof spoiler were also added to transform the look of the car, and let’s not forget the 23" light alloy rims. For the interior, Mansory is offering any combination of leather, Alcantara, wood, carbon, or aluminum trim, and just about any technical gadget imaginable.
And now the most important part: the engine. A standard X6 M develops a total of 555 hp at 6,000 rpm and 500 lb-ft of torque from 1500 to 5,650 rpm, but Mansory updated the output to an amazing 670 HP and a huge torque of 950 Nm at 5900 rpm. In order to obtain this raise, the tuner added an entirely new exhaust system complete with exhaust manifold and perfected engine electronics. The result is a sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds and a top speed of 186 mph.
Now even more luxury, power, and in-your-face styling from the wizards at Mansory, just in time for the Range Rover’s 40th birthday. The Range Rover Sport has been a very successful vehicle even in today’s tax- and emission-laden world. They no doubt are “footballers” cars, described that way due to the fact that celebrities love them – chief amongst which are English Footballers. It would make sense that, with such an affluent target market, buyers would no doubt want their Sport to stand out from all the others in the shopping mall parking lot.
Answering that call are luxury Swiss aftermarket gurus, Mansory, with a newly released complete transformation kit for the Range Rover Sport. The kit is complete in that it encompasses all aspects of vehicle tuning – styling, performance, and interior.
Their latest offering comprises of a full carbon/plastic bodykit, which includes a new bonnet with a power bulge big enough to suck in a small planet, complete new wings (60mm wider in front & 80mm at the rear), a beautiful carbon diffuser, new side skirts, new front and rear bumpers, and exterior trim. We think it’s safe to say they have left very little untouched. Rounding off the exterior look are a set of yummy lightweight 23” wheels.
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.
Remember just a few days ago we reported Mansory will come with two new models at the Paris Auto Show? Today the tuner uncovered the first of them: the Maserati GranTurismo. The tuning package includes both exterior and interior modifications, but also an engine upgrade.
Lets start with the beginning! For the exterior Mansory is offering a newly designed front spoiler with discreet spoiler lip, a carbon fiber radiator grille, additional air inlets and outlets, drawn-down deep door-sills, a carbon fiber spoiler lip, carbon inlay for the integrated exhaust pipes and of course a new set of wheels wrapped in 255/30 R 20 front tires and 305/30 R 21 tires at the back. Of course do not forget this amazing red exterior color!
The interior gets high quality leather, aluminum pedals and new ergonomically designed sporty steering wheel.
And now the most important part: the engine! Thanks to a performance-optimized ECU, an air filter with increased air throughput and a sports exhaust system with two double-suction tail pipes, the tuner managed to increase the V8’s output by 30 HP and the torque with an addition 40 NM. This upgrade can be applied for both GT and GTS models.
Two of the coolest sports models on the market, the Maserati Gran Turismo and the Mercedes SLS AMG are about to get even cooler. Mansory has announced plans to unveil two new tuning kits for the models with an official debut at the Paris Auto Show. And if you remember the Bugatti Veyron Vincero, you can understand why we expect to see the best tuning kit ever for the SLS AMG.
While the only information Mansory is giving is that the two models "will come soon," we expect to see a lot of carbon fiber, new spoilers, and larger wheels. We can also only imagine that there will be an upgraded interior, but that’s the least important upgrade given to these two models. We are anxiously awaiting the two kits because we want to see what upgrades will be given to the engines.
So, stay tuned, we’ll get back with more details as soon as we have them.
To be honest, none of these cars are in our price range. We’ll get that out of the way just in case somebody starts dreaming of owning one of these bad boys someday.
Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, there’s a nice collection of some of the world’s most luxurious – and expensive – supercars on Jameslist courtesy of Prestige Cars Abu Dhabi’s extensive collection of Mansory-tuned machines. The fact that there’s ‘prestige’ and ‘Abu Dhabi’ in the name should give you an indication of what type of cars are included in the collection.
The price tags of these cars are not being disclosed because, quite frankly, none of us can afford to buy any of them. Maybe we can buy a grille or a door panel, but even those would probably cost us an arm-and-a-half.
It’s not every day you get the chance to see a tuned-up Rolls Royce. In fact, we would love to hear about any Rolls Royce out there that has received the attention of a professional tuning firm other than the one that we are about to present to you. Tuning firm, Mansory, has made the Ghost luxury sedan look even sportier and more elegant than before. The package is called Ghost White Limited and includes both engine and aerodynamic updates.
The car is painted in a subtle white and adds a new front-end featuring additional LED daytime running lights and vertical air outlets on the sides. The Ghost will also get new side skirts, rear view mirrors on each side, a rear spoiler, and a rear apron with implied diffuser and dual sport-exhaust-system. The exterior package is finished by 22" diamond-polished wheels.
The interior gets high grade leather with a cross-stitched pattern, headliner and dash board made of Alcantara, and sports steering wheel with bamboo inserts.
The engine has been optimized to deliver a total of 638 HP at 5700 rpm and a peak torque of 860 NM up from the standard 563bhp and 780 NM of torque. The result is a sprint from 0 to 60 mph in a slower 4.5 seconds, but a top speed of 180 mph (up from 155mph).
Such a luxurious and classy car may not need any upgrades to further its level of sophistication and, quite honestly, we are debating on whether or not such a car should even see the hands of a tuner. That being said, there is no harm in improving on what we have already been given, so let us know of any professionally tuned Rolls Royce vehicles you have seen. We’d be interested in compiling a list of the classiest projects that have been completed.
The tuning firm Mansory is well-known for taking Porsche vehicles and turning them into exotic works of art. In the past it has created two different tuning kits for the new Panamera. The first one appeared at the end of 2009 and was strictly body based by adding an aggressive body kit to the Panamera. The second kit went a step further by boosting the beast from 500hp to 690hp. This time the tuner focused its attention to the most powerful Panamera in the line-up, the Turbo version.
Thanks to the addition of amended engine electronics, larger turbo chargers, and a stainless steel sports exhaust system the engine’’s output has been raised to an impressive 690 HP and 800 NM of torque which probably wasn’t too difficult considering that is what they did with the second tuning kit released in March. The result is a sprint from 0 to 62 mph in only four seconds and a top speed of 203 mph.
The exterior package includes a new front skirt with adapted LED daytime running lights, a carbon fiber bonnet, new side skirts, an enormous carbon diffuser, and 22-inch forged wheel in turbine design.
Okay, so they don’t get any points on originality, but they can still produce a mean tuning kit for the already stylish Porsche Panamera Turbo.
UPDATE 06/15/2010: Check out the new image gallery for the Mansory Panamera Turbo after the press release!
If the first Mansory tuning package for the Porsche Panamera was mostly based on improving the car’s toothy aesthetics, Mansory’s second tuning package, which it revealed at the Geneva Motor Show, is now focusing on improving the Panamera’s performances.
For the 4.8-liter engine, Mansory put in an ECU upgrade, larger turbo chargers and a stainless steel sports exhaust system, resulting in a significant spike in output for the Panamera, who thanks to the tuning package now packs an output of 690 horsepower - up from the standard 500 hp - and 850 Nm at 4800 r.p.m. This, of course, affects the Panamera’s sprint time 0 to 60 mph, which it can now do in less than 4 seconds with a top speed goes of 204 mph.
The aerodynamic kit includes: a new front skirt with adapted LED daytime running lights, a striking bonnet made of carbon fiber, an enormous carbon diffuser and a centrally located double end pipes. The car sits on 21-inch rims with a set of Michelin Pilot Sport tyres.
Mansory unveiled the G-Couture today at the Geneva Motor Show. It is a tuning kit based on the G 55 AMG and limited to only seven cars. Tuner worked on both the car’s appearance, but also on improving its performances. The entire exterior up to the lower window edge and the roof of the SUV are made of carbon.
For the engine, all the components are replaced with high-performance components from the Mercedes-Benz SLR. The result is in impressive 700 hp and 880 NM of torque.
