Mansory

Mansory sure wasn’t kidding when it described its Carbonado GT program for the Lamborghini Aventador as an overdose in carbon fiber.

To be more specific, the Swiss tuner used a carbon-fiber weave with a stealth look, which apparently is what it uses exclusively in a lot of its programs. That should be cause for confusion for those not privy to such technological marvel, but its all in a days work for Mansory.

In a lot of ways, the Swiss tuner has made a living out of these fanciful programs. Some of these projects have been knocked out of the park, while some have been complete whiffs. That said, the roster that Mansory has brought to Geneva , specifically the Carbonado GT, has been a showcase on why the company is considered one of the most exclusive aftermarket tuners in the business.

For better or for worse, Mansory wants to overwhelm even the most hardened of skeptics. And with the Carbonado GT program for the Lamborghini Aventador, and that’s precisely what it accomplished.

It’s understandable that Bugatti’s Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Rembrandt Bugatti Edition will get a lot of the love at the Geneva Motor Show . But don’t start thinking that it’s the only Veyron in attendance because Mansory won’t have any of it.

That’s because the Swiss tuner brought its own Veyron to the party, or to be more specific, its new Vivere program for the mighty Bugatti supercar .

This isn’t the first time Bugatti has been the subject of Mansory’s tender love and affection. But unlike its predecessor, the Vincero , the Vivere is, shall we say, a little more comprehensive on the facelift front, even if there’s a conspicuous absence of any sort of engine upgrade.

Maybe Mansory forgot to add one, or it just thought the program was best suited for aesthetic and aerodynamic upgrades only. Either way, it sure does liven up the Veyron , even if "livening up the Veyron" doesn’t necessarily translate to a better program.

European soccer players are famous for their amazing passion for high-performance sports cars . Cristiano Ronaldo, for example, is famous for his 20-car collection that is valued at more than $4 million. His collection includes, among others, a Bugatti Veyron , a Ferrari 599 GTO and a Lamborghini Aventador .

Now it’s time for Jose Mourinho — a famous Portuguese soccer manager — to step into the supercar world. The folks over at Mansory, in cooperation with Raff House, started to work on a supercar that bears the soccer coach’s name.

All we have on the upcoming Mourinho supercar is a teaser image and some basic details. The model will be developed using unique technologies and will feature a 750-horsepower engine. Additionally, its body will be built almost entirely from carbon fiber, with only the spoiler and the vents being made from chrome-plated aluminum in a shade that is "tough to manufacture" — whatever that means...

The Mourinho supercar will be unveiled in 2014 and will be limited to only 11 units. We have no details on the price just yet, we can assure you that it will be more than $1 million.

You can always count on Mansory to have more than just one aftermarket program offering whenever a major auto show rolls around.

It’s no different this time at Frankfurt , as the Swiss tuner has some pretty impressive programs on the show floor, one of which includes this completely customized Mercedes CLS 63 AMG .

While not as, shall we say, grandiose, as the other projects it has at Frankfurt, the luxury sports sedan still receives the benefit of being worked on by Mansory, which is regarded as one of the best in the business.

Aesthetic, aerodynamic and performance upgrades are being offered, beginning with the use of autoclave-prepreg carbon fiber on a variety of components on the body. The hood of the CLS 63 AMG is especially new, providing both a visual and aerodynamic improvement to the overall profile of the car. New side-sill sets and cladding allows the sedan to gain some width — around 50 mm on the front axle and 80 mm on the rear.

Speaking of the back, Mansory installed a new diffuser under the equally new rear apron, allowing for a harmonious working relationship with the rear spoiler to increase the sports coupe’s down-thrust.

Rounding out the mod list for the exterior is a new set of 20-inch ultralight forged wheels

The usual interior digs are offered for this program, including aluminum pedals and footrests, a redesigned sports steering wheel, carbon-fiber components on the dash and console, and of course, full-leather upholstery.

As always, Mansory went to town working on the CLS 63 AMG’s 5.5-liter V-8 engine. In this instance, the modifications involved setting up a newly programmed control unit and adding a new sports air filter for increased oxygen supply to the engine. All told, the CLS 63 AMG is now capable of pumping out 631 horsepower and 663 pound-feet of torque — a boost of 81 horsepower and 132 pound-feet over the stock model. We estimate these improvements to give the CLS 63 AMG a 0-to-60 mph sprint time of 3.6 seconds with a top speed in the neighborhood of 190 mph.

To be clear: you’ve seen this program before from Mansory at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show back in March.

But the Swiss tuner wasn’t content with building just one show-piece model of the Gronos program for the Mercedes G63 and G65 AMG models. So it built another one, and quite frankly, the model that’s being shown at the Frankfurt Auto Show is even more over-the-top than the one we saw in Geneva.

If you remember, the Gronos program back in Geneva sported a Magic Yellow paint finish, outlandish but not really too out-of-this-world. This one appears to come in naked carbon, with Mansory opting to show the newly designed bodywork in all of its ultra-light carbon glory. Notice also similar treatments done on the front spoiler, particularly the way the tuner positioned the LED daytime running lights and the front fairing that lays over it. Even the roof, the mirror housings and the decorative trims on the sides of the utility SUV exude the pure-carbon design without any coloring.

Moving inside, the modifications are a little more subdued, although still distinct enough to warrant attention. The dashboard, as well as the entire area of the center console, is completely redesigned, while various parts of the cabin are treated to a combination of pristine leather, fine wood and carbon-fiber details. With all these materials in play and subject to a customer’s whims and tastes, you can pretty much dress up your own G63 AMG anyway you want using only the finest materials available.

Like the first Gronos program that was showcased in Geneva, this one received a completely reworked 5.5-liter V-8 engine that’s been kitted with real racing components, a lot of which have been changed to go with a newly designed exhaust system. In the end, the G63 AMG Gronos now pushes out 840 horsepower and an electronically limited 738 pound-feet of torque. The 0-to-60 mph sprint is now estimated at just under four seconds, and top speed is now 175 mph.

For the entire program, vehicle included, Mansory is asking quite a pretty penny for the Gronos program to the tune of €1.1 million, which is about $1.4 million based on current exchange rates.

Somewhere in this world, there’s somebody willing to shell out over $1.65 million for a car. Sure, it’s a supercar and its actually a Lamborghini Aventador Roadster, but for that price, you can actually settle for about five standard Aventadors in different colors, right?

Well, for the few people that can shell out that much money on an exotic without even breaking a sweat, Mansory has the car for you.

It’s called the Lamborghini Aventador Carbonado Apertos and Masonry will offer just three examples for sale, which is the likely reason for the huge price tag. Besides its exclusivity, the Aventador Carbonado Apertos is the kind of car that only a Swiss tuner with the reputation of Mansory can build.

You want an excess of carbon fiber on your Aventador? Check. You want an interior that’s dressed to the nines, tens, and elevens? Check. You want a car that has over 1,250 horsepower under its hood? Check.

That’s what you’re going to get with this crown jewel program and if you happen to have plans to go to the Frankfurt Auto Show , you can see one of the three models up close and personal.

Mansory never passes up a chance to showcase its new projects in an auto show as big as Frankfurt.

So with the event scheduled to open to the public in a few days, the Swiss tuner extraordinaire has officially dropped the details on all of its Frankfurt -bound models.

One of the programs you’ll see is for the McLaren MP4-12C and you only need to be a fan of the British supercar to appreciate the level of work Mansory put into it to make it look and perform like a reborn exotic with stunning good looks and monster muscles under its hood.

In so many ways, this is typical Mansory — in a very good way. It’s not content on just rolling out the usual catch-as-catch-can program in an attempt to illicit a reaction. All of its projects come with a seal of awesomeness we don’t always see from other aftermarket companies.

That’s probably why the company saves its programs only for events like Frankfurt and quite frankly, we have no problem with that because at the end of the day, there will always be something to look forward to from this company when auto show season is in full bloom.

Those of us in the auto industry are familiar with Mansory for the insane performance programs it builds for some of the finest supercars in the world.

But cars aren’t the only thing Mansory’s adept at building. Turns out, it knows how to work on building customized iPhones, too. Yep. IPhones, or in this particular case, a 24-carat-gold iPhone 5.

Recently unveiled at BaselWorld, the 50-piece Mansory iPhone 5 was designed using 24-carat gold, which was mirror-polished on the iPhone 5. Talk about blinging up, right?

Kourosh Mansory, owner of Mansory Design and Holding GmbH, explained the company’s decision to build an iPhone 5, saying, "At MANSORY, we have always been passionate about luxury watches and fine jewelry, and the 24-carat gold iPhone5 is a natural supplement to our portfolio as it meets our quality standard of production on the highest technical level combined with masterly craftsmanship and the most precious materials.”

If you do decide that this ultra-limited iPhone 5 is in your future, you can be one of the 50 people to score it for a price of €4,900, which is around $6,400 based on current exchange rates. Details of the release and where you can buy the iPhone have not been outlined.

Press Release after the jump

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.
