When Koroush Mansory started his business as a tuner, he said that they will only modify high-end cars and won’t work on major manufacturers’ cars. They used to provide parts for different tuners, so tuning Mercedes or BMW models for example would upset their partners. Now though that Mansory has got his feet grounded as the world’s biggest tuner, they can do whatever the hell they want! So they are going to introduce a product line for BMW.
And they start with the X5, with BMW X6 and BMW 7 series to follow. The thing is, we wish they had stuck to supercars becasue look what they’ve done to the poor X5! The back is alright, but that front-end is just plain hideous.
Since the whole point of this car is showing off, they’ve widen it by 70 millimetres at the front and 80 millimetres at the back, so it has a bolder presence. Mansory as you might know has in-house carbon fiber produciton facilities, so they designed and made bespoke rear spoiler and diffuser for the X5, which unlike the front apron, does actually look good.
Those new four stainless-steel tailpipes of the sport exhaust system are also nicely designed as well.
The body kit can be used for the X5 and X5M, but when it comes to the engine, Mansory went for the bigger more powerful X5M engine and upgraded it from standard 555 hp to a massive 670 hp /493kW and peak torque of 950 Nm. That means 0 to 100 km/h in 4.2 seconds and top speed of 300 km/h.
And becasue no tuned car is complete without a set of huge wheels, Mansory provides silver monoblock cast wheels with the description M10 are fitted with tyres of the dimension 315/25R23. It also get sport springs that are 40mm lower than standard creating a nice visual effect.
The interior is as usual over done with newly designed sports steering wheel, and lots of leather and Alcantara. The private upholstery services can produce everything that your heart desires with high precision craftsmanship, with everything from personalized floor mats to a complete leather interior.
