Audi R8 Spyder by Mansory

Audi R8 Spyder by Mansory

You probably know that Mansory is one of the most eccentric tuners in the world but their latest upgrade program for the Audi R8 Spyder is not shocking at all. They’ve fitted the beautiful cabrio with a new aerodynamic package which is considerably more discrete than what we’ve seen before from Mansory.

Most of the body parts that they have created are made from carbon fiber: front grill, front / side / rear skirts and the hood trim parts. It also comes with a carbon rear wing, which along with the front spoiler increase the downforce the R8. Other than that, the car has been fitted with a new apron that has a built-in diffuser while the wheels measure 20 inches and the suspension system has been lowered.

The Audi R8 Spyder by Mansory is motivated by the same V10 5.2-liter FSI engine that has been fitted with a sport exhaust system and a sport air filter, increasing the output of the power unit to 552 hp (406 kW) @ 8,000 rpm and a peak torque of 550 Nm reachable at 6,500 rpm.

BMW 7-Series By Mansory Revealed

BMW 7-Series By Mansory

You know by now that rpmGO doesn’t really like the tuning programs developed by Mansory because we think that they have the tendency to exaggerate and roll out flashy cars. This BMW 7-Series is an exception, as it looks very good in my opinion. The car has been fitted with a new aerodynamic kit that includes a front bumper with integrated LED daytime running lights, along with a new carbon grille.

It also got a roof spoiler, a new apron, plus a rear diffuser and integrated stainless steel quad pipes from the new installed exhaust system. This upgrade program is available for both the F01 and F02 7-Series.

They offer performance upgrades for both the 750i and the 760Li, which is the extended wheelbase version. For the first one, the V8 twin-turbo 4.4-liter can get a remap of the ECU and a sport air filter, increasing the engine’s output to 483 hp (490 PS / 360 kW) and 531 lb.-ft (720 Nm), which is significantly more than the standard 402 hp (408 PS / 300 kW) and 440 lb.-ft (600 Nm).

Moving on, the 760Li with its massive V12 twin-turbo 6.0-liter engine can output 631 hp (640 PS / 470 kW) and 678 lb.-ft (920 Nm) torque, up from the standard 537 hp (544 PS / 400 kW) and 550 lb.-ft (750 Nm). With this extra oomph under the bonnet, the car can do the 0-60 mph sprint in only 4.2 seconds, which is 0.4 seconds quicker than the standard version.

Mansory has fitted the 7-Series with a brand new set of 10×22-inch wheels, covered by 265/35R22 performance tires in the front, and 295/30R22 in the back.

As far as the cabin is concerned they’ve installed a new ergonomically-designed, sport steering wheel that doesn’t have BMW’s logo (kind of rude in my opinion). Alcantra, leather, wood and carbon trims are all available for this 7-Series.

Geneva 2011 – Mansory Porsche Cayenne

Mansory Porsche Cayenne

Another tuning program for the Porsche Cayenne has been revealed this month at the 81st edition of the Geneva Motor Show. Unfortunately, this one has been made by Mansory, known for their awful tuning programs. Following the same recipe, this one looks very ugly, regardless of the angle from where you look at it.

Mansory Porsche Cayenne

This outrageous widebody kit has been made out of carbon fiber and consists of a new bonnet, updated fascias, and modified side skirts and, along with wheel arch extensions. The back of this SUV got a new more prominent diffuser and two spoilers.

They’ve added a sport module for the air suspension that has the possibility to lower the Cayenne’s ride height by up to 45 mm.  As you can see from these images, the car rolls on massive 22-inch forged alloy rims – the only good thing about this tuning program as far as the exterior look is concerned.

Mansory Porsche Cayenne

Under the bonnet, the engineers over at Mansory fitted the Cayenne’s V8 4.8-liter engine with a power pack that adds bigger turbochargers, a reprogrammed ECU, along with a new stainless steel sport exhaust system. Thanks to these modifications, the power plant is capable of outputting 680 hp (690 PS / 140 kW) and 590 lb.-ft (800 Nm), which is 187 hp (190 PS / 140 kW) and 74 lb.-ft (100 Nm) more than the standard engine has to offer. With these improvements, the Cayenne can sprint to 60 mph in only 4.4 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 186 mph (300 km/h).

Geneva 2011 – Lotus Evora Mansory Bespoke Concept

Lotus Evora Mansory Bespoke Concept

Who knew that Mansory and Lotus go well together? This Evora Bespoke Concept looks really great, a word that I haven’t used many times when talking about some of the tuning programs launched by Mansory. This concept previews the future possibilities of customizations of Lotus models. With this car, they want to find out the reaction of the customers upon which they will base their individualization program for the beautiful Evora model.

Lotus Evora Mansory Bespoke Concept

The automaker specifically chose Mansory for the task of making a customized program for its flagship sports car. If I were working at Lotus, I would have chosen another company, but I’m glad Mansory didn’t screw the Evora, like they did with a whole bunch of other cars.

Lotus Evora Mansory Bespoke Concept

As a reminder, the Evora is a mid-rear engined sports car that has a V6 3.5-liter power unit borrowed from Toyota, an engine that cranks out 176 hp (280 PS / 206 kW) and 285 lb.-ft (350 Nm) of torque. With a curb weight of only 1350 kg, the car can sprint to 60 mph in 4.9 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 162 mph (260 km/h).

Most likely, when Mansory will introduce the tuning program, the Evora will be more powerful and faster.

MANSORY Reveales 2011 Porsche Cayenne Tuning Program

MANSORY 2011 Porsche Cayenne

MANSORY is known for launching some extravagant tuning programs but for this 2011 Cayenne I think that they really did a nice job. They took the model fitted with the 4.8-liter engine and increased its power from 500 hp (368 kW) to 690 hp (507 kW).

MANSORY 2011 Porsche Cayenne

The 800 Nm of torque is available at 4,800 rpm. It is quite a powerful tuning program as the engine offers 190 more ponies, allowing the SUV to do the 0-62 mph sprint in 4, 4 seconds, onto a top speed of 300 km/h.

MANSORY 2011 Porsche Cayenne

This significant increase in power is available thanks to the larger turbos, the re-mapped ECU and the new stainless steel sports exhaust. The car also packs some aerodynamics updates, including the new front & rear aprons, the updated side skirts as well as the wheel arch extensions that look really cool, making the Cayenne 60 mm wider in the front and 80 mm in the back.

MANSORY 2011 Porsche Cayenne

In addition, the MANSORY 2011 Porsche Cayenne also features LED daytime running lights, large air intakes, a carbon fiber bonnet and massive 21, 22 or even 23-inch wheels. The height of this German SUV can be reduced by up to 45 mm thanks to the air suspension.

BMW X6 M gets Mansory treatment, becomes an even more powerful beast

Swiss tuning company Mansory are known for their extreme tuning programs for luxury cars and their latest ‘victim’, the BMW X6 M, received some impressive upgrades. First of all, we have the exterior, where Mansory worked on a new body kit with new front spoiler with bigger air intakes, a new carbon fiber bonnet with vents, new side and rear skirts, a new rear diffuser, a rear spoiler lip and roof spoiler. Also, the wings were modified and are now wider, giving a very aggressive look to the German SAV.

Under the bonnet, the engine received 115 more hp, delivering 670 hp (493 kW) and 950 Nm of torque, which means the car now sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.2 seconds (half a second faster than the production X6 M) and reaches an electronically limited top speed of 300 km/h (186 mph).

Other upgrades include stainless-steel sport exhaust with quad-pipes, a new sport suspension kit which lowers the car by 40 mm and all sorts of exclusive features for the interior.

Mansory tunes the Maserati GranTurismo S, doesn’t make our eyes bleed


Tuning company Mansory isn’t exactly favored by many car fans, largely because it usually chooses to dress up its tuned models in questionable materials or paint jobs. We’ve seen an eye burning Porsche Panamera in Cobalt Blue, as well as a Bugatti Veyron with an interior wrapped in gold and various types of leather.

Now, things have gotten a bit more sensible, with the company’s newest tuning package for the Maserati GranTurismo and the GranTurismo S.

A complete carbon fiber body has been installed, consisting of front and rear aprons, new spoilers and a revamped grille. Everything, as you can see, has been dressed in a relatively tame black and red two-tone paint scheme.


In terms of performance, the GranTurismo and GranTurismo S now have 30 HP more than the stock models, and are equipped with a new suspension system that lowers ride height by 30mm. All of this is rounded off by a set of custom Mansory wheels in red and black inserts.

Mansory Bugatti Veyron Linea Vincero d’Oro goes for gold


Ah yes, Mansory, we meet again. After making us put our guard down with the rather tasteful Rolls Royce White Ghost tuning project, the company that brought us the pink Bentley Continental GT or the electric blue Porsche Panamera strikes once more.

This time, Mansory decided that the Bugatti Veyron definitely needs more improvements. And by improvements, the Swiss tuning company means more gold accents.


As you can see above and below, the company fitted a wide array of gold accessories, including the wheels, the front grille, the mirror housings or even more outlandish things like the headlight washer nozzles or the fuel filler cap.

Besides that, your wealth will be shown off by a new carbon fiber body kit, with copper threads interwoven into the material. Yeah, just because Mansory can. The interior, suffice to say, is taken straight from an automotive horror show.


Only one such Bugatti Veyron by Mansory Linea Vincero d’Oro has been made, but, with the right amount of cash, the company can modify any existing Veyron.

Mansory presents surprisingly tasteful Rolls Royce White Ghost tuning project


Mansory is definitely one of the most eccentric tuning companies in the world, as it combines some very interesting and impressive projects with some that are … let’s just say out of the ordinary, like the Porsche Panamera or the Bentley Vitesse Rose.

We’re sure many of you are still recovering from the awful blue and gold Rolls Royce Ghost project, but Mansory has modified the British luxury limousine once more. You won’t need to shield your eyes this time, as the Mansory Rolls Royce White Ghost limited series is surprisingly tasteful.

A subtle body kit was added, as were LED daytime running lights and a set of dual exhaust pipes. On the inside, the same luxury options as on the Ghost were kept, with just a few new materials making an appearance.


Performance fans will be thrilled to hear that the power of the White Ghost has been increased to 629 HP, and the torque rating is now 634 lb-ft. This allows for a 0 to 62 mph sprint of 4.5 seconds and a top speed of 180 mph.

Only three models will be made, each with a tag of €119,800 ($152,407), not counting in the price of a stock Rolls Royce Ghost. It may be tasteful, but who said it was cheap?

Mansory Porsche Panamera Turbo prepares for US debut, won’t burn your eyes this time


At the end of last year, European tuning company Mansory revealed the first renders of its special tuning kit for the Porsche Panamera Turbo, detailing a more aggressive and lightweight body kit, as well as a power increase.

A few weeks ago, the finished product was revealed. While we could most certainly applaud the new power ratings of 681 HP plus 516 lb-ft of torque, the biggest (and worst) reactions were aimed at the horrible exterior paint job, combining a bright cobalt blue with electro-yellow.


Unhappy with the result, Mansory’s US importer, RTW Motoring, released a fresh batch of photos with the tuned Panamera Turbo. The photos serve as a tease for the US debut of the upgraded model, set to take place at the Orange County Barret-Jackson Car Auction, on June 24.

As you can see above, decked out in a more normal shade of white, the Mansory Porsche Panamera Turbo isn’t half bad. Still, it’s going to take a long time before we can forget that horrible paint scheme.

Mansory Porsche Panamera Turbo tuning project may cause blindness


Among the tuning landscape of the world, Mansory is definitely one of the most … eccentric companies, to put it mildly.

Sure, we saw some pretty cool projects every now and then, but sometimes, the finished model isn’t exactly what we imagined. That, at least, is how it went with the Mansory Rolls Royce Ghost. But we still had hopes for the Porsche Panamera project the company teased us with at the end of last year.

Sadly, those hopes were shattered. Sure, you can find an adequate power increase for the Porsche Panamera Turbo, from 500 HP to 690 HP. You will also enjoy a fresh carbon fiber body kit, with all sorts of lightweight accessories.


But it seems the whole project went wrong when Mansory sent it off to the painting department, as the tuned Panamera was decked out in an eye-burning cobalt Blue with yellow accents. The inside isn’t for the faint-hearted, as the two-tone scheme is straight out of a horror film.

What do you think? Can the power increase justify the finish? Share your thoughts below.

Mansory-tuned Rolls Royce Ghost can’t outrun bad taste even with 710 HP


This is one of those tuning projects which once it has been seen, it cannot be unseen. While it is commendable that Mansory upgraded the new Rolls Royce Ghost to 710 HP, the paint scheme for the preview, blue and gold, will forever burn the car into your eyes.

First, let’s talk about what we like: the performance boost. From the stock 562 HP and 575 lb-ft, the Mansory Rolls Royce Ghost is now capable of 710 HP and 752 lb-ft of torque. This increase is due to an upgraded engine manifold, larger turbochargers and an optimized ECU. Performance figures include a 0 to 62 mph sprint of just 4.4 seconds and a top speed of 193 mph (310 km/h) for the big British saloon.

Next are the aerodynamic improvements, and while we can’t say anything about the 22-inch wheels, the restyled front and rear fascias, side skirts or rear spoiler, the paint scheme leaves us completely without words.


But while we most certainly won’t approve of such a model, I’m sure that it will find plenty of customers in “certain” parts of the world. What do you think? Leave us a comment with your thoughts.

Porsche Panamera gets new bodykit from Mansory


In case you want your new Porsche Panamera to look a bit more exclusive, luxury tuning house Mansory has got the perfect thing for you, in the form of a new aerodynamic bodykit which they have just presented.

Don’t go looking for any engine upgrades though, as this is kit is focused purely on looks. And I must say it does one hell of a job, as a new front spoiler, revamped grille and a hood with two air intakes makes the Panamera’s face a bit more attractive. Wider air vents, side skirts and a new rear spoiler with a carbon fiber deflector have also been added, as well as a new exhaust tip, running down the center of the rear bumper.


Finishing things off is a set of new 21-inch wheels, sitting on a lowered suspension system, bringing the Porsche super sedan closer to the ground by about 35 mm.

All in all, the Panamera has certainly received a bump in the sport department, but it may not be enough for Porsche purists to accept it as a true car from the German company.

Mansory presents pink Bentley Vitesse Rose at Frankfurt


Pink isn’t something you normally see on many cars except in the case of women drivers. But the tuning crew at Mansory thought it would be a perfect color for the Bentley Continental GT Speed, and will be revealing the Bentley Vitesse Rose at the Frankfurt Motor Show this week.

After you recover from the shock of seeing a pink Bentley, you might also observe that besides the pink, the German team from Mansory has outfitted the Continental GT with a carbon fiber bodykit, in sharp contrast with the pink and new 21-inch allow rims that provide better handling than the normal ones. In order to truly hear that monster 6-liter V12 engine, the team also put in a new, custom-built, sports exhaust manifold.


On the inside, the stark contrasts keep on coming, as the two-tone upholstery features both light and strong purple as the colors. The leather, hand processed, will also be in a strong contrast with the sporty pedals, made of aluminum blended with carbon fiber, and the racing wheel which still contains the stock airbag of the car.

Overall, if you want a truly custom Bentley Continental GT Speed, as only three of these tuning packages will be made, it will cost you €269,000. More pics will appear straight from the Frankfurt floor later this week.

Aston Martin DB9 tuning by Mansory

We couldn’t let this go by without writing about it because these are two of our favorites companies, Aston Martin and Mansory. The German tuner (responsable for some really cool programs 1 2 3 4) created a tuning program for the Aston Martin DB9, both the Coupe and Cabrio versions. The body kit features new front spoiler with daytime running lights, integrated fog lights and a matching lower grille insert, side skirts with carbon-lined rear intakes, new carbon fiber rear diffuser, plus chrome exhaust tips, aluminum trim, and matching carbon taillight covers.

Handling and performance were improved by using new Brembo brake package (405mm discs and six-piston callipers up front and four-piston callipers in the rear), new lightweight forged 20 inch aluminum wheels, new anodized aluminum air intakes and a suspension lowering kit with sport performance springs.

For the interior, the best materials were used, like maple wood, carbon-fiber and Alcantara. Check out more photos after the jump.
