Mansory products always spark a lot of controversy. But more often than not, this controversy is among people who cannot afford to buy their products anyway. As far as Mansory is concerned, people with actual money usually like what they come up with, and that’s all that matters.
Mansory Siracusa Ferrari 458 Italia is a point in case. If you look at it objectively, the thing is a mess. They started with the gorgeous and sexy 458 and turned into a hideous monster. But that’s our opinion. A rich man who has already owned a couple of 458s will find this car an absolute delight, simply because it looks different than his neighbor’s bog standard Italia, and because it will get him noticed more.
Another way of looking at Mansory Siracusa is through the eyes of an artist, or a fashion designer. Stuff these guys come up with are rarely appealing to the masses. They are usually aimed at a small, elite group of people who know what they’re looking at.
So that F1-style noise and those carbon vents may look ridiculous to you and me, but as long as the people this car is aimed at like it, it’s a job well done for Mansory. We see the same thing with their Stallone F12 and to some extent with what they did to the Bugatti Veyron. So let’s stop hating for a minute and see if WE can find any beauty in this confusing little thing…
