690 HP and 700 Nm torque – The MANSORY Power Pack for the Porsche Panamera Turbo
MANSORY Switzerland devotes itself to the Porsche Panamera Turbo. The specialist for fine-tuning Porsche vehicles turns the Zuffenhausen Gran Turismo into a hot-blooded power pack with a 690 HP, a max. torque of 800 Nm and a spectacular body design.
Perfectly matching components turn the front section of the MANSORY modification into a dynamic highlight: the new front skirt with adapted LED daytime running lights in combination with the striking bonnet made of carbon fibre give the front section a distinctive character.
Masculine broadenings for the wings and doors perfectly harmonise with the new side skirts. At the back of this four-door-car, an enormous carbon diffuser and the centrally located double end pipes of the sports exhaust system render a thrilling atmosphere. MANSORY decorates the originally hydraulic rear with carbon applications or entirely replaces it with a static wing profile made of carbon. The engineers produce the new aerodynamics components in high-strength polyurethane (PU-RIM) and Prepreg-Autoclav-Carbon, the characteristic material for MANSORY.
In addition to the exciting look, the MANSORY engine department developed a powerful performance enhancement for the 4.8 litre turbo engine. The power pack contains an amended engine electronics, larger turbo chargers and a stainless steel sports exhaust system. Thanks to these modifications, the engine output rises to an astonishing 690 hp / 507 kW (serial: 500 hp / 368 kW) and pushes the torque to 700 Nm at 4800 r.p.m. Therefore, the 4WD-automobile accelerates from 0 to 100 km/ in only four seconds and achieves a top speed of 328 km/h (serial: 303 km/h).
The wheel-tyre combination has been especially designed for Porsche and renders sufficient grip: The latest development and highlight in the offered rim programme is an especially light 22-inch forged wheel in turbine design. At the front axle, the 9 inch wide wheels carry the high performance wheels Dunlop SP SportMaxx in the dimension 265/30ZR22 while the rear 10-inch wide wheels are equipped with tyres measuring 295/25ZR22.
In order to provide the driver directly with the experience of an automobile refined by MANSORY, the engineers included extensive refinements. A widespread leather interior can be individually matched with the most precious woods, finest varnish or dynamic carbon. The pedals made of brushed aluminium perfect the interior equipment. With the newly designed sports steering wheel, the driver can feel the elegance of the refined Porsche straight in his hands.
MANSORY Switzerland bestows an individual appearance to the Porsche Panamera. The complex refinement turns a sports car for journeys into a characteristic personality – after all a real MANSORY.
For already more than 20 years, the Bavarian company Mansory is the first choice when tuning top class automobiles. Due to its creative inspiration, Mansory enhances these cars with modern features. Mainly, optical changes underline the sportive character of the car. The refining specialist also pursues this approach with its newly developed programme for the Bentley Continental GT Speed which celebrates its premiere at the Geneva Auto Salon 2009.
High-quality design sets sportive trends
The exclusive Mansory aerodynamics pack sets trends in quality and design. On the one hand, the chassis components made of PU-RIM perfectly integrate into the original design, but also set significant sportive trends without being too obtrusive. The front- and rear apron form a unit with the side skirts and do not only demonstrate optical finesse. At the same time, the mounted parts optimise the air duct over the car silhouette which leads to a positive effect when handling the automobile. Moreover, the extra down-thrust is generated by the rear lip which perfectly flows into the shape of the boot lid, ensuring constant traction.
Performance plus due to target-oriented modifications
The driver can fully indulge in the performance evolvement of the Bentley GT Speed by Mansory. By fitting a sport air filter and specific alterations in motor electronics, the engineers of the refining specialists achieve better response behaviour for the power engine – due to this modification, the torque rises from 750 Nm to 890 Nm at 6,100 rpm. A newly developed exhaust system with four angular chrome end pipes gives the back of the car a striking finish and completes this performance enhancement. Apart from the design and the sportive sonorous sound, the exhaust system essentially contributes to the performance enhancement from 610 to 685 hp. Therefore, this racer achieves an impressive maximum speed of 348 km/h.
Supreme light alloy rims and optimal road-holding features
In order to stay abreast of the performance enhancement, Mansory developed a forged wheel measuring 10.5 x 21 inches. By using weight-saving aluminium alloys and the subsequent reduction of unsprung masses, not only the acceleration and the braking distance, but also the handling experiences a significant progress. As for the wheels, the perfect match is the high-performance Pilot Sport PS2 in 305/30 ZR 21 which was developed in a co-operation with Michelin. Moreover, sportive trends are set with the newly developed air suspension control unit which allows lowering the race car?s centre of gravity by various stages.
Comprehensive and high-quality interior programme
Mansory manages the perfect symbioses from sportive functionality and luxurious atmosphere. The interior is equipped with most precious materials rendering comfort. The masterly crafted leather is extremely resilient, but still enormously soft. With its individual graining and the perfectly applied decorative stitching, the newly designed airbag sport steering-wheel and its environment render an extravagant impression. The pedals made aluminium and applications made of real carbon perfect the exclusive Mansory programme for the Bentley Continental GT Speed.
