GENEVA, SWITZERLAND - As a specialist for customisation of Aston Martin, Bentley and Rolls Royce automobiles, MANSORY has long been an institution. Now, the company from Brand in Bavaria has tackled the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano. At the same time, right on time for the start of the open-top motoring season in Europe, Mansory is presenting the convertible known as Bel Air on the basis of the Rolls-Royce Drophead Coupé.

Mansory Stallone – an exquisite power pack based on the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano

With luxurious as well as sporty modifications, MANSORY proves that the company also has a clear understanding of customising Italian super sports cars. Especially light body components made of carbon, a powerful increase to the engine performance and an interior covered with the finest ostrich leather fulfil the car desires of the exclusive clientele.

More Bounce for the Italian Stallion

MANSORY pays special attention to performance optimisation with which the car from Maranello made the sprint from zero to 100 kph two tenths faster than the series version (3.7 seconds). The propulsion is only over at 340 kph. Thus the modification, called the Stallone, impressively fills the gap to the fast, 350 kph sports car brother, the Enzo. The engine components newly developed by the MANSORY technicians are responsible for this. The performance kit includes high-performance compressors and custom made intercooling. The supercharging of the V12 power train is supported by a sport air filter with higher air throughput as well as modified control electronics. This increases the performance of the large 6.0 litre twelve cylinder engine from 620 to 720 HP. The torque increased by an additional 92 Nm. The sport rear muffler made of stainless steel underscores the sporty appearance of the MANSORY Stallone with its impressive sound.

Perfect Symbiosis: the Mansory forged turbine-wheel and the Dunlop Sport Maxx

In order to accommodate the increased performance, the company developed especially light forged wheels with a 9 x 20 inch size for the front axle and 11.5 x 21 inch for the back axle. At only 13 kg for one of the front axle rims, the MANSORY wheel is one of the absolute lightweights. By using weight-saving aluminium alloys and with the resulting reduction of the unsprung mass, the acceleration, breaking distance as well as the handling are improved considerably. The SP Sport Maxx model of Dunlop high-performance tyres developed together with MANSORY are a perfect match. The front tyres are 255/30 and the back ones are 325/30. The suspension spring also creates a sporty flair, which lowers the centre of gravity of the super sports car by 30 millimetres and moreover emphasises the wheel/tyre combination even more.

Featherweight: Sleek looking packet made of carbon

The MANSORY Stallone is given its optical finishing touch by the uplift-reducing aerodynamics kit made of carbon. This material is already used amply in the base model of the Fiorano. Here, MANSORY goes one step further and uses carbon with the highest surface quality for all of its chassis components. As a result of the modification measures, the weight is reduced to the series components. Part of the expressive front structure is a down force generating front end with special air intakes for ventilating the new intercooler. The Mansory side skirts steady the airflow between the axes and moreover give the vehicles an aggressive sporty look. The newly designed rear with the integrated diffuser stabilised the rear axle and provides the necessary extra down force. The MANSORY Stallone acquires its highly individual flair through the side flared wing arches.

Luxurious Interior in Ostrich Leather

The most exquisite materials, processed with the greatest traditional craftsmanship distinguish the interior of the MANSORY Stallone. The leather used by MANSORY for the interior is particularly durable but still extremely soft. The unique grain of the unusual leather combined with the stylish ornamental seams and the exposed carbon appliqués convey both elegance as well as sportiness in the interior. Masterful handiwork, individual styling, and the highest quality is found wherever one chooses to look. The pedals made of aluminium, the illuminated door entry strips and the ergonomically redesigned sport steering wheel create additional optical highlights.

Mansory Bel Air - luxurious open-top experience

Named after the classy district of Los Angeles, the MANSORY Bel Air truly lives up to its name. Luxury as far as the eye can see. Even in the production version, this car belongs to the most exclusive money can buy. MANSORY, however, the specialist for super sports cars and luxury limousines, even goes one better here and customises the Rolls-Royce at the highest level. The refinement package includes a completely newly developed extravagant body-styling kit as well as prominent mirror-finished aluminium wheel rims. A technical highlight is the high performance brake system developed in collaboration with Brembo.

To see and be seen– not just under the Californian sun

The design vocabulary of the production vehicle is retained and, as such, the body styling kit from PU-RIM material designed by MANSORY for the high-class boulevards of the world’s most luxurious destinations is not in any way obtrusive. Perfect workmanship and harmonious styling are the hallmarks of the newly designed apron adorning the impressive Rolls-Royce front end. The Mansory side sills accentuate the lateral styling and convey a sense of supreme control even when stationary. The Bel Air aerodynamics package is completed by the new lift-reducing rear end.

Sure-footed – mirror-finished 22 inch rims

Sporty elegance coupled with high technical sophistication are the defining characteristics of the wheel design used for the MANSORY Bel Air. The single-piece mirror-finished wheel with its nine twin-spoke design is impressive both due to its exclusive look and also thanks to its outstanding workmanship. The forged construction makes the MANSORY wheel rims exceptionally light compared with conventional cast wheels. The resulting reduction of unsprung weight significantly improves the acceleration as well as the stopping distance and handling. To ensure that this 22-inch alloy wheel is fitted with an ideal set of tyres, the Dunlop SP Sport Maxx tyre in the dimension 305/40 has been specially developed in collaboration with Dunlop.

Precision landing in front of the red carpet

In collaboration with Brembo, the world’s leading manufacturer of high-performance brake systems, MANSORY has developed a brake system that is specially tuned to the modified needs of the Bel Air. Optimised deceleration and perfect metering of the pedal pressure are now provided by 6-piston callipers in conjunction with 412 mm diameter discs at the front in addition to 4-piston callipers with 380 mm diameter discs at the rear.

Convertible feeling in a luxury ambience

The stylish interior of the MANSORY is created using only the most sophisticated of materials. Extravagant design products such as the extremely soft design leather with its characteristic grain ensure a sense of comfort and exceptional flair. Matching with this are the expertly crafted carbon and natural wood appointments in the interior. Perfectly diamond-stitched decorative seams on the dashboard and seats add further visual accents. The aluminium pedals, the illuminated door sill trims and the new ergonomically designed airbag steering wheel go to complete the strikingly beautiful overall appearance of the MANSORY Bel Air. Whether you are sitting in the front or in the back of this high-class convertible – motoring does not get any more luxurious than this.
