I have seen Mansory’s treatment of the new Ferrari 458 Italia only a few times in person so I was beginning to think that their masterfully designed tuning package was never going to make it here and the car I saw was simply a one-off. Today, I can say I was wrong as RTW Motoring (the official distributor for Mansory in the U.S.) announced that the Mansory Ferrari 458 package is now available stateside. While that wont change my life much, it is cool to know that there is a greater possibility of running into a Mansory Ferrari 458 the next time I go to Cars & Coffee. As you will see in the video below the Mansory package is very elaborate to say the least. If you count the individual parts of each element, the aero package alone is over 30 pieces! Many if not all of those pieces are made from glorious, beautiful carbon fiber. However to keep things on the tasteful side only certain areas will have visible carbon but as you will see, the visible carbon is in all the right places. The package also comes with LED daytime running lights, fog lights, an exhaust system, and a set of 20 inch center lock wheels. The end result is in my opinion, beautiful. If you agree and also are kicking enough ass at life to be able to afford such a thing, you can order your Mansory Ferrari 458 Italia package from RTW Motoring.
One of my favorite things about the LA Auto Show is that they actually make an effort to try and represent the aftermarket of the automotive industry. Each year in Kenita Hall they invite players like Al & Ed’s Autosound, Wheel Warehouse, DUB, and more to show off what they got in something of a “mini-SEMA”. With Lamborghini and Ferrari bowing out of the show Kenita hall is the place to go to get your supercar fix. This year we saw not one but two Bugatti Veyron’s, a Lamborghini Aventador, and several Ferrari 458 Italia’s. Kenita Hall is also the spot to go to if you are wheel shopping or you are interested in any number of random car goods. We usually save Kenita Hall for last but this year we are going to give you a look at what awaits you at the LA Auto Show. Scroll down for our flickr slideshow!
Have a spare 2 minutes? Then you should spend them checking out the pair of beautiful Mansory Porsche Panameras built by RTW Motoring. These guys are making me fall in love with the Panamera and that is not an easy task because I was not much of a fan of the car in its stock trim. Besides the exterior stuff Mansory also gave the Panamera some extra push by adding an exhaust and a re-tuned ECU. We likey..
Mansory has been transforming luxury and exotic cars for quite some time now. However, they are relatively new to the SUV market. They are jumping in head first by doing not one, but two widebody kits for the Range Rover and the BMW X6. While some Mansory creations have been a bit, “eccentric” I can honestly say I am digging what they did with the two European SUVs here. The really good news is that if you are feeling either of these body kits as much as I am you can actually get your hands on them if you live in the states thanks to RTW Motoring who is Mansory’s exclusive North American distributor. I wonder how long it will be before we see a Mansory Range Rover or BMW X6 on “Cribs”?

I’m all about carbon fiber furniture but I’m not so such about the ostrich skin. But hey whatever floats your boat right? Mansory seems to think there are enough people who dig the ostrich/carbon combo to produce an entire line of chairs. I don’t know about you but when I look at this thing I think of the bad guy from the first die hard movie…remember him? He played “Professor Snape” you know..
There are a few levels of high end luxury travel that one could attain. The one we most commonly know is what RJ and I like to refer to as “baller status”. But, if you really want to take it up a notch you could go outright “regal status” with it! What you see above is definately within the regal category. It’s Mansory’s take on the Rolls Royce Phantom dubbed “Conquistador”. With a name like that you already know the theme they’re going for!
One day I want to drive one of these to the grocery store…just ’cause…
There have been more than a few variations on the Bugatti Veyron since it was released. Many of the variations came from Bugatti themselves. Although today I can officially say that my favorite variant so far is by Mansory. They call it the Linea Vincero. I call it the freshest car ever freakin’ built. The whole top half of the car is carbon fiber!! Exposed carbon fiber at that! The wheels are sick! I love this thing and one day it shall be mine….oh yes…it shall be mine…
The Mansory Cooperation GmbH solely offers proprietary developed modification accessories under the name LINEA Vincerò. They do not market entire automobiles and also do not sell any such vehicles.
The Mansory individualisation programme for the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 is offered in a limited edition via the Middle East partner “Prestige Cars Abu Dhabi”.
This mainly shows by the LED lights of the new Ambiente-Illumination-System which are fitted in the seats, door linings and the dashboard. The entire passenger compartment glows in a soft light which does not only render a comfortable feeling, but also emphasises the high-quality carbon applications and the especially grained leather. The ergonomically designed airbag steering wheel is both sportive and particularly pliable and is equipped with rocker switches.
The interior is exclusive and yet functional. Also here, Mansory understands how luxury and technology can be harmonically combined. When traditional craftsmanship, selected materials and stylish design merge, the result is an interior of automobile excellence.
“Vincerò! Vincerò! – I will win”, that is the self-confident exclamation from Nessun Dorma, probably the most famous tenor aria from Giacomo Puccini´s opera Turandot. And Vincerò is also the name of the latest automobile accessory line by refining specialist Mansory. Mansory already finds many parallels for the new name: The plot of the aria stems from a Persian tale of 1001 days which also relates to the standard motorisation of the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 with 1,001 hp. On the other hand, it should also refer to the origin of Kourosh Mansory, the founder and CEO of Mansory Corporation. And the opera has another reference to the offered product portfolio by ending after three acts. The LINEA Vincerò edition is also not infinite – the project is strictly limited.
It goes without saying that such a sonorous name is only suitable for an absolutely high-quality programme. Already the Bugatti Veyron serial edition sets standards in terms of price, maximum speed and engine power and leaves its competitors far behind when a contender for the super sports car is to be crowned. Whoever now thinks that everything possible has been achieved, can be proved wrong. Already visually, the changes clearly show. The front part gets a comprehensive face-lift including modified wings, a shorter hood and a striking front apron. The LED daytime running lights integrated in the front mount and the implemented stylised “V” as a special tribute to the name “Vincerò” draw even more attention to the car.
The newly developed side skirts are the visual and aerodynamic connection between the axles. Larger air outlets at the sides and at the back render optimal engine cooling and in combination with the new diffuser, they underline the powerful car design. Mansory manufactures nearly all auto body parts from ultra-light and high-strength carbon.
The applied hardening technique with strong pressure and high temperatures in the autoclave thereby enormously improve the material quality.
In order to perfect the entire visual appearance, Mansory devised new, striking fully-forged turbine-design wheels for the Linea Vincerò in serial dimensions.
Also, the power engine is refined by Mansory. Technical innovation is combined with technical expertise and thereby, an increased cooling air supply and optimised exhaust system produce an unbelievable 1109 hp and 1310 Nm.
Ok, so here is my “holy S#!+” moment of the show. I’m strolling along Kenita Hall and right when I’m about to leave I see a giant studio lit exhibit with a big sign that says “MANSORY” on it! Turns out that Mansory has a exclusive distrubtor state side called Ogara Coach. After my school girl freak out they let me past the rope to take a few snaps. Standing in front of the Stallone 599GTB was quite the experience. Pictures really do not do it justice.
RJ heard this through the grapevine the other day and one visit to Mansory’s website confirmed it. German/British tuner Mansory has officially acquired at least a portion of Rinspeed. We don’t speak German or Swedish but from the way things appear on the site it looks as if Mansory only acquired Rinspeed’s Porsche tuning arm and not their concept car studio.
What does this mean? Honestly not too much only that anything Rinspeed made for Porsches in the recent future will now be re-branded as a Mansory product. We’re not sure if Mansory is planning to dump more money into its new Porsche tuner shop to develop further parts or use Rinspeed’s resources to aid in the development for more Bentley and Aston Martin products. We can only drool at the possibilities! We’ll keep you posted!
When it comes to Brittish cars Mansory has some of the best stuff. Granted a few of their aero products are a bit…unconventional but in general they’re top shelf. I’m a Bond fan so when I saw their treatment for the Aston Martin Vantage I was immediately interested. Its a subtle touch that really compliments the factory lines. I am NOT a fan of the yellow hue they used for the pictures but it does help you see how the aero add ons contribute to the shape of the car.
