Refining super cars is more than just a business for MANSORY. The attention to detail and the love of all that is special and unique is what drives towards extraordinary developments. The latest creation of the company proves this impressively once again. The MANSORY interpretation of the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo with its exclusive and comprehensive refinement program does not only make the hearts of die hard Porsche fans beat faster.
The MANSORY brand is associated as no other with carbon fibre, the favourite material of the Formula 1 and space travel. Unlike other customisers, MANSORY manufactures the carbon components itself with in-house autoclaves and it does not rely on suppliers. This requires considerable in-house know-how, which the engineers and designers have perfected throughout the years. In addition to the design elements made of collage carbon fibre, targeted interventions on the front, side and rear provide additional aerodynamics. The change is particularly evident in the increased width of the aerodynamics package. The painting alternating with plenty of collage visible carbon fibre emphasizes the numerous MANSORY measures: Front apron, bonnet, side skirts, diffuser rear apron and a two piece roof spoiler all add up to an impressive overall appearance.
And the performance also benefits from the increase in downforce and the widened track. This increase in agility and handling makes room for even more performance. Also at this point, the refinement specialist brings its know-how into play. The development department has fitted the petrol engine with an optimised control unit, a sports air filter and a high performance exhaust system consisting of a rear silencer and exhaust pipes. This enhancement strengthens the Zuffenhausen V8 bi-turbo by 35 hp (26 kW) and 40 Newton metres of maximum torque.
Both technically and visually, the wheel-tyre combination has been perfectly matched to the increased performance and the widened body. The Y5/1 alloy wheels featuring dimensions of 10x22 inches on the front axle, and 11x22 inches on the rear axle guarantee excellent load capacity and high levels of stability while keeping unsprung weight to a minimum. For maximum grip, the wheels are clad with ultra high performance tyres in widths of 295 and 335 millimetres.
Of course, the upholstery team at MANSORY have also generously relined the interior. Seats, fittings and applications have been lavishly wrapped in leather and carbon fibre. This applies to the sports steering wheel and the gear lever for the eight-speed dual-clutch transmission, as well as the seats and the centre console.
