It’s always interesting when one tuning firm completes a project and that same project gets another once-over from a different company. We’ve just seen this scenario with the Mercedes-Benz G 55 AMG Hamann Typhoon and Specialty Car Craft’s own interpretation of the vehicle, and now Platinum Motorsport is doing the same thing with a Porsche Panamera tuned by Mansory.
The Panamera started its day with the Mansory kit which includes a new front skirt with adapted LED daytime running lights, a striking bonnet made of carbon fiber, an enormous carbon diffuser, centrally located double end pipes, and 21-inch rims on Michelin Pilot Sport tires. The 4.8L engine was already pumped up with an ECU upgrade, larger turbo chargers, and a stainless steel sports exhaust system that increased the output from 500 HP to 690 HP. With the new output, the sprint from 0 to 60 mph is made in less than 4 seconds, while top speed goes of 204 mph.
Yes, that kit does seem to be complete already, but Platinum Motorsport thought it better to provide the sports sedan with a new set of 22" Agetro M140 painted in black and a sleek black exterior paint job. They say that sometimes by giving a little, you get a lot; we think these minor modifications illustrate that point.
