Mansory’s tuning package for the McLaren MP4-12C has been revealed din full at the Geneva Motor Show. Finished in a hot red chrome color, the MP4 by Mansory features a wide body kit and new carbon fiber panels. It’s very sporty, but it’s not as pretty as the other thousand tuned MP4’s we saw at the show.
The carbon body kit – consisting of front air splitter, fender extensions, side vent, rear fixed wing and rear diffuser – make the car a bit lighter than before. So taking into account the tuned V8 engine which now develops 670 PS / 493 kW at 7,100 rpm (series: 608 PS / 447 kW at 7,000 rpm) and 675 Nm torque (series: 600 Nm at 3,000 – 6,500), it should be pretty fast. And it is.
The car has 9.0Jx20-inch wheels with tyres of the size 245/30ZR20 at front, and at the rear, 11Jx21-inch wheels with 305/25ZR21 tyres. They are good for grip, but finished in gold they are not really helping with the style.
The interior is classic Mansory; posh, but not very tasteful. You get black and orange leather everywhere you look, newly designed airbag sports steering wheel, the aluminium pedals and the real carbon-fibre elements.
