I want to make some things clear before we get into this particular dream car:

  • I have not been a huge fan of Mansory products
  • If you are fortunate enough to have the resources to purchase a car like this, do not get it in yellow or blue

Although I previously felt Mansory products are just a little too ridiculous in terms of styling (I like subtlety when it comes to style) they have recently made some corporate decisions that have helped me turn the corner.

First, they acquired Rinspeed (genius) and second they have designed some amazing looking upgrades for the Porsche Panamera and the Porsche Panamera Turbo.

The body kit for the Mansory 970 Panamera is definitely something to look at. Image from Mansory.com.

Here is an excerpt from the Mansory website about their latest creation:

Also the latest model range from Zuffenhausen is equipped with an athletic body design in MANSORY tradition. 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 kit 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 850 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).
