The over the top tuning firm Mansory has a long tradition of taking British sports cars and turning them into wild carbon fiber clad creations that make whatever aggression the car’s design team incorporated simply seem weak. However after the shop’s owner Kourosh Mansory came out with the Porsche Cayenne Chopster, transforming one of the German automaker’s four door sports cars was the next logical step. So today, the Swiss aftermarket manufacturer is revealing the details about their upcoming customization program for the 2010 Porsche Panamera.
The Mansory Panamera wears an aggressive body kit made from either a high strength polyurethane material (PU RIM) or very exotic and lightweight carbon fiber. Starting off up front the Panamera’s snout is no longer smiling but instead snarling with its inverted vents on either side of the larger front air dam. The hood features a pair of Aston Martin like vents and a set of significantly blistered wheel arches to house the staggered 21 inch wheels with an especially wide set of rollers measuring in at 11.5 inch across in the back. The ground effects package lowers the car by about an inch and gives the GT car a much wider stance, like it is ready to pounce on whatever stands in its way.
The inside of the Mansory Panamera will be tailored to suit a variety of tastes. For the more genteel there is an offering of precious wood trim and fine varnish finishes or for the more modern day consummate driver dynamic carbon carbon fiber and aluminum panels will adorn the tuned Panamera’s interior. However the sport designed steering wheel will remind the driver that no matter which package they choose, they are behind the wheel of a true sports car.
Press release after the jump.
MANSORY Switzerland enhances the Porsche Panamera. The specialist for exclusive refinement of premium automobiles turns the four-door Gran Turismo into a power pack which is even more dynamic and exclusive and most of all has a significantly more distinct appearance.
Originally, the company owner Kourosh Mansory solely focused on British luxury cars, but meanwhile he has also proven his talent for Italian brands such as the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano and automobiles like the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren. After the Chopster Cayenne, the Panamera is already the second Porsche which is given the honour to become entirely modified by MANSORY.
Also, the new Porsche will receive an individual design language according to the MANSORY tradition. Its engineers produce the new aerodynamics components in high-strength polyurethane (PU-RIM) and Prepreg-Autoclav-Carbon, the characteristic material for MANSORY. As the car is lowered by 35 millimetres and equipped with new wheels measuring 9,5x21 and 11,5x21 inches as well as a sport exhaust system, the new personality of the Panamera becomes significantly more visual and audible.
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.
