Ferrari Portofino with 720hp by Mansory Revealed

Mansory has revealed their take on the Ferrari Portofino, giving it their usual dose of forged carbon fiber parts as well as increased power outout. The full electric ‘retractable hard top’ (RHT) has been finished completely in dark forged carbon for the first time but the functions remain untouched.

Additional lightweight body components made of dark forged carbon have also been used on the exterior features including the front and rear apron, the side skirts, the side flaps, the rear spoiler and on all the air outlets in the bonnets and side wings.

The vehicle features a standard output of 620hp, 760Nm torque and the acceleration from 0-100km/h is achieved in 3.45seconds. After an overhaul of the engine management and exhaust system conversion, the V8 engine is now capable of generating a maximum output of 720hp and 890Nm of torque. The acceleration from 0-100km/h has been reduced to 3.0 seconds.

This Ferrari Portofino has also been fitted with a set of modified YT.5 wheels and high-performance tyres. The wheels are in dimensions 9×21 with 245/330 21 (VA) on the front axle and 11.5x 22 with 305/25 22 (HA) on the rear axle. The YT.5 wheels have been used on the F8XX for the first time on the Mansory programme but will be available for all Ferrari models from this year.

Inside the vehicle, the interior has been designed and finished in fine smooth black leather and almost all the seams and control buttons are finished in yellow. The interior also features a sports leather steering wheel, floor mats with yellow edges and several embroidered logos. The three buttons on the dual-clutch gearbox consists of the color Green, White and Red, the colors reflect those on the Italian national flag.

Mansory Ferrari F8 Tributo

After MANSORY presented the open-top “MANSORY Stallone GTS (MY21)” a few weeks ago, a Spider for the highest demands of open-top driving, the presentation of another super sports car from the Italian noble brand from Maranello follows within a truly short time – the completely new “MANSORY F8XX” based on the Ferrari F8 Tributo.

While the “MANSORY Stallone GTS (MY21)” is primarily designed for MANSORY customers, for whom driving with an open-top is a priority, the “MANSORY F8XX” is clearly and unmistakably aimed in the direction of high performance and uncompromising lightweight construction, in order to do justice to the MANSORY clientele who expect and desire precisely these characteristics from their vehicle.

But as always, a complete vehicle conversion from MANSORY not only impresses with its high technical demands for increased performance but also with its visual appeal, which clearly underlines the technical demands visually.

While the special “Catania Green” paintwork may attract the viewer’s attention at first glance, the countless details of the “MANSORY F8XX”, lovingly and hand-crafted made to the highest standard, succeed in captivating the viewer almost simultaneously, so that the F8XX is able to present itself to the viewer as a harmonious overall work of art.

To achieve this, only the finest ingredients of automotive refinement are used in this complete conversion: lightweight body components made of forged carbon, striking forged and gold-colored sports rims, and various interior modifications made of the finest leather.

Following a tradition of more than 30 years, the luxury manufacturer MANSORY produces its Ferrari aerodynamic components unchanged and exclusively from the ultra-light material carbon. In the case of the “MANSORY F8XX” in the particularly attractive version called “Forged Carbon”.

In addition to the front apron, the side skirts, and the rear apron, one component of the body conversion deserves special attention: the rear wing of the “MANSORY F8XX”, which is divided into two L-shaped angles. A rarely perfect example of how extravagant looks and high technical standards can be combined in harmony.

In addition to the appearance of the “MANSORY F8XX”, the technology of the F8 Tributo has also been extensively revised and refined in detail. While the mid-engined V8 produces an impressive 720 hp and 770 Nm on the crankshaft from its 3.9-liter displacement as standard, the engineers in MANSORY’s in-house engine department were able to increase these figures to an impressive 880 hp and 960 Nm thanks to extensive modifications to the engine management and exhaust system. And this without changing the driveability and excellent response of the standard engine. The corresponding figures for driving performance increase to 354 km/h and the sprint from zero to 100 km/h is reduced to 2.6s.

The high engine power is transferred into maximum performance in combination with adapted suspension components and the “YT.5” rims used for the first time on the “MANSORY F8XX”. These one-piece, ultra-light forged rims in the dimensions 9.5 x 21 and 12 x 22 are used as a wheel-tire combination with high-performance tires in the sizes 255/30 ZR21 (VA) and 335/25 ZR22 (HA).

But the interior is not left untouched either, and so the interior specialists at MANSORY create a sporty atmosphere that once again perfectly combines high functionality, comfort, and design. The passenger compartment of the “MANSORY F8XX” is completely lined in beige leather with white applications and continues the luxury standard that applies to all MANSORY complete conversions at the highest level in the interior. But not only almost all components of the interior are upholstered in leather, but they are also accentuated with carbon in certain areas. A MANSORY sports steering wheel in leather, MANSORY floor mats, and several precisely embroidered MANSORY logos elegantly round off the all-encompassing refinement in the interior.

Another Ford GT gets Mansory’s controversial Le Mansory treatment

Mansory turned heads, for better or worse, when it transformed the Ford GT into a creation dubbed the Le Mansory. It announced plans to make three examples, and it unveiled the trio’s second member in 2021. While we don’t know who ordered it, we wouldn’t be surprised if “Bruce Wayne, aka Batman” appears on the title.

It looks like the visual modifications are identical to the ones made to the first Le Mansory shown in June 2020, so they include a fully redesigned front end with recessed LED headlights and a diverse array of aerodynamic add-ons. Air scoops popped up from the GT’s roof, while the rear wing and the rear diffuser have both grown significantly. Specific wheels with y-shaped spokes complete the look. The person who ordered this car requested a rather Batmobile-like black paint job with red accents and a checked flag-like finish for the carbon fiber. 

Splitting the public’s opinion is one of Mansory’s specialties, and the Le Mansory is not an exception to the rule. It wears a look that most will either love or hate. We can’t help but wonder what Moray Callum, the soon-to-be-retired Ford designer who led the team that styled the GT, has to say about the new-look front end.

Passengers are reminded of the car’s new name as soon as they open the door, because Le Mansory (chosen to honor the car’s success at Le Mans) appears on the Alcantara-upholstered sills. Inside, the buyer requested a combination of red and black upholstery with numerous carbon fiber accents. It matches the exterior well.

Mansory’s mechanical updates are less controversial than the visual changes; nearly everyone agrees with more power. It kept the twin-turbocharged, 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 and tuned it to 700 horsepower and 620 pound-feet of torque, compared to 647 and 550, respectively, for the stock model. Still bolted to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, the six-cylinder sends the Le Mansory to a top speed of 220 mph (four more than stock).

Pricing information remains under wraps, but it’s reasonable to assume that the person who commissioned this Le Mansory received a seven-digit bill. Now that two of the three cars are spoken for, what remains to be see is how the third one will be configured — it could be relatively subtle, or it might get an outlandish design.

The MANSORY Bentley Flying Spur W12 conversion

Kourosh Mansory always had a soft spot for premium British cars, he turned his passion into a business when he started MANSORY in 1989 with special attention to Rolls-Royce, Bentley, and Aston Martin. Today MANSORY takes that same high-end attention to detail to makes like Porsche, Lotus, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, McLaren, Lamborghini, and Ferrari … MANSORY is at the top of the ‘individualization’ car market.

Many of us will regard a Bentley Flying Spur W12 as a top-of-the-line luxury car with performance in mind, while a Rolls-Royce is usually enjoyed from the rear seat with a ‘chauffeur’, a Bentley is mostly driven by the owner being regarded as the more sporty alternative to a Rolls … and if the standard car from Crewe just isn’t exclusive enough … just have MANSORY to create a bespoke one just for you.

MANSORY brings clear carbon fiber to the front, side, and rear of the Bentley Flying Spur, there is a distinctive lip that’s added to the front bumper, naturally, the air intakes on that bumper get some carbon fiber add-ons too while the grille surround is also replaced by MANSORY. A four-part set of side skirts are available, while not one, but two different rear diffuser options are listed, one with four massive, oval exhaust tips, while the second comes with split-oval tips.

MANSORY offers a replacement engine cover for the Bentley Flying Spur, with integrated air vents, and the option for a carbon fiber ‘bonnet bar’ as they call it. We wouldn’t be looking at a MANSORY car if the exterior rearview mirrors didn’t get a carbon fiber cover too, and just like a small, but tasteful front lip, there is a nice little rear wing available too … and as a finishing touch, you can replace the Bentley logo on the trunk lid with a MANSORY ‘M’ logo.

Some might call it blasphemy, but MANSORY can replace the Bentley exhaust system with twin sport mufflers, there’s even an X-Pipe on the options list, while a 20 to 30mm lowering suspension kit is also possible, to make those custom MANSORY forged wheels come out even better, all in a 22-inch size, 10×22 for the front with 275/35 22 tires, and 11.5×22 at the rear with massive 335/25 22 … personally I love the glossy black FS.23 wheel the best.

While the interior of a factory standard Bentley Flying Spur W12 is already at an extremely high level, MANSORY still adds some personal touches nonetheless, like a bespoke sports steering wheel combining leather and carbon fiber that matches the new shift paddles, and the new door sills, with lighted MANSORY logo naturally, and a new gearshift lever, with the ‘M’ proudly on the top.

But MANSORY also offers a bespoke interior conversion to their customers, using exclusive leather in combination with carbon fiber or wood, whichever the client prefers, MANSORY offers 3D-embossed leather, there is even a multi-piece conversion set for the instrument panel, co-driver board, middle console front 2-parts, middle console rear 2-parts, ashtray, cover front and rear, jalousie front and behind, cover for light system front, 4-parts door panels available with carbon and wood.

Finished in a deep black paint with dark carbon fiber touches, the MANSORY Flying Spur W12 gets a power increase to 710 hp (522 kW) while torque goes to 1,000 Nm … as a result, the top speed goes up to 340 km/h and acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h takes only 3.6 seconds in this behemoth.

Gronos 2021 – a Mansory modified Mercedes G-Class G63

Kourosh Mansory, located in Brand, Germany, is a well-known manufacturer of exclusive cars, most of which might be designed with Far-East, or Asian customers in mind, but their workmanship is at such a level you can’t resist admiring their creations, even if they aren’t always to your exact taste.

In 2013 MANSORY revealed the Gronos, a complete vehicle conversion taking Mercedes-Benz G 63 AMG and G 65 AMG and completely transforming it into a beast, called the Gronos after the god Cronos who led the twelve Titans. The interior of the original Gronos didn’t have seats anymore, MANSORY calls them thrones now, upholstered in the finest leather possible, with amazing, bespoke stitching patterns. Together with perfect carbon fiber, made in-house in MANSORY’s own autoclave.

Back in 2013 MANSORY mounted 23-inch wheels with 305/35ZR23 tires, the original V8 engine is taken apart by MANSORY and gets rebuilt, together with a custom, stainless steel exhaust system, power output was 840 hp with an electronically limited torque figure of 1,000 Nm.

But MANSORY wasn’t finished with the Gronos, they also made a ‘Black Edition’ that had a full carbon fiber body, later a Gronos Facelift was released, with a carbon fiber redesigned body, wider fenders, new front hood, new front spoiler … and still with 840 hp.

Last year MANSORY came up with two new models based on the Mercedes G-Class, the ‘Star Trooper Pickup’, which was created in collaboration with Philipp Plein, and a ‘special protection’ version that is in line with the ‘invisible armoring’ idea from MANSORY, people that can afford this kind of exclusivity need to feel safe inside their car after all.

Now it’s time to take the Gronos into 2021 with a new evolution that takes the original design and modernizes it for the current market requirements. The entire aerodynamic program from the previous Gronos has been redesigned, a new front bumper and lower spoiler, even more exclusive, wide fenders, and a new rear diffuser. Note that all MANSORY aero parts are made from carbon fiber, and they even show special ‘Forged Carbon’ details finished in high-gloss.

While the car’s exterior is finished in a stunning, dark green shade referred to as ‘British Racing Green’, the front engine cover stays unpainted to display the perfect finish of the carbon fiber it’s made of, additional cooling vents just finish the amazing look. Additional DRL, daytime running lights, complete the aggressive look of the front and let’s not forget the extra, very bright, LED added to the roof above the windshield.

The Mercedes G-Class is one of those SUV that keeps the spare tire on the outside, on a large door, on this MANSORY Gronos 2021 the cover for this spare is made from Forged Carbon naturally, what else would you expect, and it matches numerous other parts on the exterior of the 2021 edition of the Gronos.

The factory standard Mercedes G63 AMG can’t be called underpowered with a healthy 585 hp available from the turbocharged V8 engine, still, MANSORY takes it apart and modifies the ECU, adds larges turbochargers, new downpipes, and a bespoke exhaust system. After MANSORY dials in the engine, the power output is raised to an impressive 850 hp, torque goes from 850 Nm to 1,000 Nm … acceleration is now only 3.5 seconds to reach 100 km/h from standstill, and the top speed is limited to 250 km/h.

With all that power and torque, those massive 295/30R24 tires might need changing quicker than you think, but those forged YN.5 MANSORY wheels, finished in glossy black, are just a feast to admire, so who cares about four new tires on a car like this. Just be careful when exiting the rear of this Gronos 2021, the two massive, round exhaust pipes exit just ahead of the rear wheels, and they might be burning hot!

And that brings us to the interior, if you think the exterior of this Gronos 2021 looks impressive, just admire that brown leather interior, MANSORY calls it ‘Fawn Brown’. And when you think about some of the other MANSORY creations, like a yellow Lamborghini Urus with a bright yellow leather interior, or a blue Rolls Royce with … you guessed it, a blue leather interior … this Gronos 2021 actually looks rather timid.

And this shade of brown leather complements the British Racing Green exterior perfectly, and if you look closely, you’ll notice MANSORY didn’t leave anything untouched inside this Gronos 2021, a new steering wheel, naturally with visible carbon fiber, dark carbon fiber inlays all over the interior. And that bespoke stitching pattern is executed to perfection, complete with embroidered MANSORY logo on the seats and floor mats.

The carpet in the MANSORY Gronos 2021 is finished in black for a nice contrast, but they added finely made floor mats that match the leather on the seats, even the inner door panel of that large, rear door gets the MANSORY treatment, and a custom floor mat just had to be added to the luggage space … even the entire headliner is replaced with the finest ‘Fawn Brown’ leather, how’s that for attention to detail?

But now comes the bad news … and no, it isn’t the price, because customers for this kind of total conversion don’t even have to ask ‘how much’, they just sign a blank cheque. No, the really bad news is that MANSORY will only make 10 units of this Gronos 2021, and while the CO2 emissions are 312 g/km and fuel consumption is a combined 13,6 l/100km … I don’t think this will deter people from buying the MANSORY Gronos 2021 … heck, most of MANSORY’s customers have their own oil fields anyway.

Mansory Porsche Cayenne Turbo Coupe Gets 700 hp

Mansory has a number of new models on the horizon. It has teased six in the past week. The latest reveal is this orange Porsche Cayenne Turbo Coupe.

The subtle package of modifications is entirely new. It fits all variants of the 3rd generation Porsche Cayenne, not just the Coupe.

The Mansory Porsche Cayenne Turbo Coupe gets a bodykit which includes a new carbon fibre bonnet with additional carbon fibre components including front air intakes, a front apron, side sills (partly painted in the colour of the car), outside mirrors and a new rear apron.

The spoiler and wheel arch extensions are also finished in carbon fibre.

The wheels are Mansory’s Y.5 design and measure 23 inches. Changes to the ECU unit increase the power output of the Mansory Porsche Cayenne Turbo Coupe’s V8 to 700 hp and 900 Nm of torque. It’s now capable of hitting 100 km/h in just 3.2 seconds.

The demo Mansory Porsche Cayenne Turbo Coupe is also for sale. Mansory have listed it with a price tag of €249,400.

Mansory Cabrera: Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Gets New Looks

Mansory recently got hold of a Lamborghini Aventador SVJ. The result is the Mansory Cabrera. Mansory is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year and the Cabrera is the first several special edition models.

Limited to just 3 copies, the Mansory Cabrera is built on the platform of the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ. The name derives from the Spanish Fighting Bull breed, the Cabrera. The name seems fitting, with the Mansory body kit creating a wild and aggressive new look!

The basis of the Mansory conversion is a complete replacement of the body kit with new carbon fibre panels. At the front, the deep front air intakes remain, the front splitter design now features air outlets at the side with smaller dive planes.

New LED daytime running lights are fitted below a set of redesigned headlights. The bonnet is redesigned with quick release clips. Fender vents finish it off. Towards the side, the door panels are redesigned and the side skirts get a more aggressive look.

The rear changes are the most extreme. The rear spoiler is bigger, featuring a central aerodynamic panel. The exhausts have been re-routed to exit higher up with two additional tailpipes. The rear diffuser is deeper and the rear mesh is replaced with stealth-look mesh.

The new body kit adds 4 cm of width to the Aventador. The 6.5-litre V12 engine also receives a re-design. It now generates 810 hp and 780 Nm of torque. As a result, the Mansory Cabrera hits 100 km/h in 2.6 seconds with a top speed of 355 km/h.

The Mansory Cabrera is a Lamborghini Aventador SVJ with a bullish mug

Mansory does not care if a car is rare or special or unique. If it’s not a Mansory, it’s probably not good enough. But it might qualify to become a Mansory. The aftermarket tuning and design company has captured the limited Aventador SVJ and transformed it into a new vehicle called the Cabrera, which sports new looks and has more power.

Lamborghini will only produce 900 Aventador SVJs, and of those 900, three will go under the knife at a Mansory workshop. Mansory quotes a motto, “one car per decade,” and says the Cabrera “marks the start of several special editions on the occasion of Mansory’s 30th anniversary in 2020.” The name Cabrera is a breeding line of the Spanish fighting bull, similar to the names Miura and Gallardo.

The Cabrera has an entirely distinct face thanks to a new set of LED headlights. Rather than the chunky stock units that point toward the rear of the car, the new four-unit headlights are slim and horizontal. With the adjustments to the headlights came tweaks to the hood and front fascia. New air inlets on the front apron improve radiator air flow and help improve downforce. The carbon fiber widebody kit, which adds 1.6 inches in width, continues with bulbous wheel arches, aerodynamic side skirts, and a rear “double diffuser.” Extra downforce comes courtesy of a massive angular rear wing, and aggressively designed forged lightweight wheels (9×20 and 13×21) are wrapped in Pirelli P Zero tires.

The body kit is also designed to help cool the upgraded 6.5-liter V12 engine. While the “normal” SVJ makes 759 horsepower and 531 lb-ft of torque, the Cabrera makes 810 hp and 575 lb-ft. Mansory claims zero-to-62 mph in 2.6 seconds and a top speed of 221 mph.

Inside, Mansory takes the Aventador’s fighter-jet inspiration literally. The forged carbon fiber has “arrow-shaped decorative seams,” that look awfully similar to stealth bombers. That’s also mimicked with imprints in the seats. Every part of the interior has been redone and refitted with upgraded materials, including the ceiling, which has a colorful accent spine.   

The Cabrera is only one of many vehicles that were launched surrounding the canceled Geneva Motor Show. Other new custom creations include the Lamborghini Urus Venatus and the Bentley Continental GT V8 Convertible.

Mansory Reveals Bentley Continental GT Cabriolet V8

Mansory have been unseasonably quiet during the period of the Geneva Motor Show 2020. We can only assume that after the show got cancelled, they decided to hold back some of their planned releases for another event. What we did get to see is a unique take on the Bentley Continental GT Cabriolet V8.

In true Mansory fashion, the Bentley has been re-clothed with a carbon fibre body. The carbon fibre has been moulded into an extreme shape. The front gets a redesigned bumper with a brand new black grille and a new hood. The side receives new design lines and an extended wheel vent. The rear wheel arch gets green pinstripes which accent the swollen look.

At the rear, Mansory offers a new fixed rear spoiler, a new rear bumper, diffuser and quad tailpipes. It’s not massively extreme by Mansory’s high standards, however, it does leave a lasting impression. The mixture of matte carbon fibre and matte black.

It’s the interior where things get interesting on the Mansory Bentley Cabriolet GT Cabriolet V8. Finished in chrome oxide green, it is distinctive. It has been crafted from scratch with the colour applied tot he steering wheel, the great lever and the centre console.

The Mansory Bentley Cabriolet GT Cabriolet V8 gets a power boost too. An ECU module boosts the twin-turbocharged V8 to 640 hp and 890 Nm of torque. It now hits 100 km/h in just 3.8 seconds. The question is, would you want one?

Bugatti Chiron Centuria

If someone thinks the Bugatti Chiron needs more retooling, they’re simply crazy. Yet that’s exactly the headspace Mansory needed to be in when it built this Bugatti Chiron Centuria, which is unbelievably more formidable than its base inspiration.

A listing for the car popped up Monday on the German tuning company’s website. The mod marks the first time anyone has dared to modify the Chrino, on its own already a pretty beastly affair. But as you know in the world of cars, the best is a peak not a plateau. Mansory knew the Bugatti Chiron set a high bar. So it moved that bar even further.

In all fairness, Mansory has the credentials to back it up. It’s been renovating Bugatti cars since 2009. And here’s how it describes itself:

“No other company can boast more experience in individualization of these million-dollar luxury sports cars than the team around company founder and designer Kourosh Mansory.”

You get the idea. As of this time, it’s not exactly clear if Mansory touched the ride’s 1,500 horsepower, 8-liter, W-16 engine. It did, however, redo the exterior. On top of a new Centuria blue paint job, the supercar now boasts bespoke carbon-fiber body panels, new side skirts, and a diffuser. It’s also got a redesigned wing, which will apparently improve the car’s aerodynamics.

Mansory also added larger intake inlets on the hood for better engine cooling. There’s a special exhaust and fully forged alloy wheels as well, complete with a turbine design and a carbon-fiber finish.

Now, on to the big question — how much?

Well, you can get the Bugatti Chiron Centuria for a cool Centuria for $4.8 million.

Lamborghini Aventador ‘Carbonado’ by Mansory

Sx-Z | Lamborghini Aventador ‘Carbonado’ by Mansory

Earlier this year at the Geneva Motor Show, Swiss autotuner Mansory showed off a special Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4. If that version wasn’t extravagant enough for you, it looks like they gave it another shot with this ‘Carbonado’ version – limited to a mere 6 cars. The Carbonado, whose name is derived from ”Black Diamonds” found in parts of Africa and Brazil, features lighter components made out of carbon fiber, replacing most of the Aventador’s exterior panels plus the engine compartment cover.

The body kit increases the Aventador’s width by 40 millimetres (1.57 inches) on the front axle and 50 millimetres (1.97 inches) on the rear axle. It includes numerous add on parts such as the side skirts, front and rear aprons and a rear wing, all decked out in carbon fiber of course.

Complementing the body changes are a new set of light forged rims with carbon-fiber inlays – tires sizes come in 255/30 ZR20 in front and 345/25 ZR21 in the rear.

Mansory didn’t stop there, the Aventador’s V12 engine got some special treatment through a performance package consisting of a reprogrammed ECU and special exhaust system which raises output from 691bhp (700PS) and 690Nm to 744bhp (754PS) at 8,300 rpm and 750Nm (553.1 lb-ft) at 6,000 rpm.

The Aventador will accelerate to 100km/h (62mph) in just 2.8 seconds and max out at 355km/h (221 mph).

The interior of the Carbonado package sports carbon fiber inserts and black leather upholstery with red accents.
