PR, 24 April 2008.

Known as a specialist for customising Aston Martin, Bentley and Rolls Royce automobiles, Mansory has now tackled three top luxury and sports cars references: the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano, Rolls-Royce Drophead Coupé and the McLaren SLR.

With luxurious and sporty modifications, the company from Brand in Bavaria, Germany, shows its own understanding of customising Italian as well as German and... British super luxury and / or super sports cars.

Especially light body components made of carbon, powerful increase to engine performance and interiors covered with the finest leather answer the specific desires of such exclusive clientele.

Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano - Based on the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano, the Mansory Stallone optimises the performance of the car from Maranello, cutting the sprint zero to 100 kph sprint by two tenths of a second, compared to the series version (3.7 seconds), on its way to a top speed of 340 kph, where legal and objective conditions permit.

Thus the modification, called the Stallone, fills the gap to the fast, 350 kph sports car brother, the Ferrari Enzo.

The engine components newly developed by the Mansory technicians come in a performance kit which includes high-performance compressors and custom made intercooling.

The supercharging of the V12 powertrain is supported by a sport air filter with higher air throughput as well as modified control electronics.

This increases the performance of the large 6.0 litre twelve cylinder engine from 620 to 720 HP. Torque is increased by an additional 92 Nm. The sport rear muffler made of stainless steel underscores the sporty appearance of the Mansory Stallone with its impressive sound. 

To accommodate the increased performance, the company developed especially light forged wheels with a 9 x 20 inch size for the front axle and 11.5 x 21 inch for the back axle. At only 13 kg for one of the front axle rims, the Mansory wheel is one of the best lightweights.

Stallone light forged wheels: 9 x 20 / 11.5 x 21 inch front / back.

By using weight-saving aluminium alloys and with the resulting reduction of the unsprung mass, the acceleration, breaking distance as well as the handling are improved considerably.

The SP Sport Maxx Dunlop high-performance tyres are developed together with Mansory. The front tyres are 255/30 and the rear ones are 325/30.

The suspension springs also create a sporty flair, which lowers the centre of gravity of the super sports car by 30 millimetres, emphasising the wheel/tyre combination even more.

Stallone leather: charming, durable and very soft.

Additionally, the Mansory Stallone is given its optical finishing touch by the uplift-reducing aerodynamics kit made of carbon. This material is already used amply in the base model of the Fiorano. Here, Mansory goes one step further and uses carbon with the highest surface quality for all of its chassis components.

Part of the expressive front structure is a downforce generating front end with special air intakes for ventilating the new intercooler.

The Mansory side skirts stabilise the airflow between the axles and give the vehicles an aggressive sporty look. The newly designed rear with the integrated diffuser also stabilise the rear axle and provide the necessary extra downforce on the driven rear wheels. The Mansory Stallone brings an even more individual flair through the side flared wing arches.

Aluminium pedals and redesigned steering wheel.

Inside, the most exquisite materials, processed with traditional craftsmanship distinguish the interior of the Stallone. The leather used for the interior is particularly durable, yet very soft. The unique grain of the unusual leather combined with the stylish ornamental seams and the exposed carbon appliqués convey both elegance as well as sportiness in the interior.

Masterful handiwork, individual styling, and the highest quality is found wherever one chooses to look. The pedals made of aluminium, the illuminated door entry strips and the ergonomically redesigned sport steering wheel create additional optical highlights.

Rolls-Royce Drophead Coupé - Right on time for the start of the open-top motoring season in Europe, Mansory is presenting the convertible known as Bel Air on the basis of the Rolls-Royce Drophead Coupé.

Named after the classy district of Los Angeles, the Bel Air spreads luxury as far as the eye can see. Even in the production version, this car belongs to the most exclusive money can buy.

Mansory, however, goes its own way here and customises the Rolls-Royce with a refinement package that includes a completely newly developed extravagant body-styling kit as well as prominent mirror-finished aluminium wheel rims. A technical highlight is the high performance brake system developed in collaboration with Brembo.

Characteristic grain for a sense of comfort and exceptional flair.

The design vocabulary of the production vehicle is retained and, as such, the body styling kit from PU-RIM material designed by Mansory for the high-class boulevards of the world’s most luxurious destinations is not obtrusive. Perfect workmanship and harmonious styling are the hallmarks of the newly designed apron adorning the impressive Rolls-Royce front end.

The Mansory side sills accentuate the lateral styling and convey a sense of control even when stationary. The Bel Air aerodynamics package is completed by the new lift-reducing rear end.

The Bel Air comes with single-piece mirror-finished wheels with nine twin-spoke design. The forged construction makes the wheel rims exceptionally light compared with conventional cast wheels. The resulting reduction of unsprung weight significantly improves the acceleration as well as the stopping distance and handling. To ensure that this 22-inch alloy wheel is fitted with an ideal set of tyres, the Dunlop SP Sport Maxx tyre in the dimension 305/40 has been specially developed in collaboration with Dunlop.

Even the Drophead boot gets its share of the deal.

In collaboration with Brembo, the world’s leading manufacturer of high-performance brake systems, Mansory has developed a brake system that is specially tuned to the modified needs of the Bel Air. Optimised deceleration and perfect metering of the pedal pressure are now provided by 6-piston callipers in conjunction with 412 mm diameter discs at the front in addition to 4-piston callipers with 380 mm diameter discs at the rear.

The stylish interior of the Bel Air is created using only sophisticated materials. Extravagant design products such as the extremely soft design leather with its characteristic grain ensure a sense of comfort and exceptional flair, with expertly crafted carbon and natural wood appointments. Diamond-stitched decorative seams on the dashboard and seats add further visual accents. The aluminium pedals, the illuminated door sill trims and the new ergonomically designed airbag steering wheel complete the striking overall appearance.

Mercedes Benz SLR McLaren, rejuvenated by Mansory.

Mercedes Benz SLR McLaren - Since 2004, McLaren has been producing the Mercedes Benz SLR McLaren in Woking, England, in almost unaltered form. Mansory, presented last month at the 2008 Geneva motor show, the gull wing racer in a new design, under the Renovatio designation. Not only did the bodywork get a facelift, the engine was also given modified supercharging by means of Mansory compressor technology. Ultra-light forged wheels and a superlative automotive interior complete the all-round renewal.

During the development of the Renovatio, both individual design and aerodynamic efficiency were addressed. To save weight, Mansory fashioned its body components out of carbon. The production car body is also made out of this extremely light and resilient material.

Renovatio: new rear apron with integrated diffuser.

One component of the body kit is the front apron in dynamic sport design. It channels the airstream to the custom-designed intercoolers of the performance kit and so ensures extra cooling air. The new side skirts constitute the optical link between the front and rear wheel arch extensions. These calm the airstream between the axles and create space for the outlets of the side pipe exhaust system.

The new rear apron with integrated diffuser takes care of additional downforce and puts the final touch to the sporting lines of the styling package.

The 5.5 litre V8 engine with its standard 626 hp gained from other comprehensive changes. The Mansory engineers mission was to redesign the engine as an evolution rather than a revolution.

Renovatio: craftsmanship with decorative stitching.

The leading idea was not about making major changes to the SLR’s core. Rather, existing components were swapped for modified developments by Mansory itself. For example, use is made of new high performance compressors and tailor-made intercoolers.

The finishing touches to the performance upgrade are a sports air filter and modified engine management.

As a result the Renovatio is two tenths faster from zero to 100 km/h than the production model. Top speed increases to 340 kph. Following the alterations the Renovatio has 700 PS and generates 880 Nm torque on the crankshaft.

Mansory provides a special wheel-tyre combination in exclusive design for the Renovatio. The one-piece turbine-wheels with five double-spokes, 9 x 20 at the front and 11.5 x 20 at the rear, are impressive thanks to their sporting looks and superior workmanship. Here too, the reduction of the unsprung mass due to the especially light forged wheels improves braking distance, acceleration and handling. For maximum wheel grip Mansory uses 255/30 Dunlop SP Sport Maxx tyres at the front and 325/25 at the rear.

Like the Stallone and the Bel Air, the very best materials have been used in the Renovatio interior. The leather processed by master craftsmen is also both hard-wearing and soft. This characteristic natural product with its special grain and the perfect craftsmanship of its decorative stitching convey an extravagant flair around the redesigned airbag sports steering wheel. The aluminium pedals, illuminated door tread plates and real carbon applications complete the luxurious overall impression within the Renovatio.
