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.

Press release after the jump.
MANSORY Switzerland devotes itself to the Porsche Panamera Turbo. The specialist for fine-tuning Porsche vehicles turns the Zuffenhausen Gran Turismo into a hot-blooded power pack with a 690 HP, a max. torque of 700 Nm and a spectacular body design.
Perfectly matching components turn the front section of the MANSORY modification into a dynamic highlight: the new front skirt with adapted LED daytime running lights in combination with the striking bonnet made of carbon fibre give the front section a distinctive character. Masculine broadenings for the wings and doors perfectly harmonise with the new side skirts. At the back of this four-door-car, an enormous carbon diffuser and the centrally located double end pipes of the sports exhaust system render a thrilling atmosphere. MANSORY decorates the originally hydraulic rear with carbon applications or entirely replaces it with a static wing profile made of carbon. The engineers produce the new aerodynamics components in high-strength polyurethane (PU-RIM) and Prepreg-Autoclav-Carbon, the characteristic material for MANSORY.
In addition to the exciting look, the MANSORY engine department developed a powerful performance enhancement for the 4.8 litre turbo engine. The power pack contains an amended engine electronics, larger turbo chargers and a stainless steel sports exhaust system. Thanks to these modifications, the engine output rises to an astonishing 690 hp / 507 kW (serial: 500 hp / 368 kW) and pushes the torque to 800 Nm at 4800 r.p.m. Therefore, the 4WD-automobile accelerates from 0 to 100 km/ in only four seconds and achieves a top speed of 328 km/h (serial: 303 km/h).
The wheel-tyre combination has been especially designed for Porsche and renders sufficient grip: The latest development and highlight in the offered rim programme is an especially light 22-inch forged wheel in turbine design. At the front axle, the 9 inch wide wheels carry the high performance wheels Dunlop SP SportMaxx in the dimension 265/30ZR22 while the rear 10-inch wide wheels are equipped with tyres measuring 295/25ZR22.
In order to provide the driver directly with the experience of an automobile refined by MANSORY, the engineers included extensive refinements. A widespread leather interior can be individually matched with the most precious woods, finest varnish or dynamic carbon. The pedals made of brushed aluminium perfect the interior equipment. With the newly designed sports steering wheel, the driver can feel the elegance of the refined Porsche straight in his hands.
MANSORY Switzerland bestows an individual appearance to the Porsche Panamera. The complex refinement turns a sports car for journeys into a characteristic personality – after all a real MANSORY.
