Mansory at Frankfurt
Purveyor of questionable taste brings turquoise 12C and 1,250hp F12 to Frankfurt.

What's the news?

Swiss tuner Mansory has never been known for its subtlety and at Frankfurt the brand, seemingly favoured by football players and Russian Oligarchs, did not disappoint. Even before entering the main hall show attendees got to see Mansory's latest line of armoured personnel carriers - perfect for disposed dictators the world over.

Inside, things got a little more surreal with the McLaren MP4-12C subjected to a rather lurid shade of turquoise paint. The Macca also had some attention under the bonnet with the twin-turbo V8 receiving a performance exhaust, a new engine management system and sports air filter that combine to boost power from 608- to 670hp. Mansory claims a top speed of 219mph.

That's tame in comparison to the F12 Revoluzione (does that name look a little too similar to 'Revolting' to anyone else?). The car started life as a Ferrari F12 but the Mansory engineers stripped down the bodywork and rebuilt it from scratch. The result is a carbon fibre body with unique front and rear ends, all slathered in luxurious gloss red paint. But let's not forget the engine; seemingly the standard 740hp V12 was not enough for Mansory so it has fitted a pair of turbochargers to produce 1,250hp. The 0-62mph sprint is said to take just 2.9 seconds and the top speed is claimed to be 230mph. There is the small matter of the price - about 1.1 million before taxes...

The Lamborghini Aventador was subjected to similar treatment to create the Mansory Carbonado. The last Aventador Mansory got its hands on was finished in matt carbon but the Carbonado sports glorious gloss weave and a similar twin-turbo set up to the Revolting. No word on price but as the saying goes "If you have to ask..."

Anything else?

There was one Mansory car that the Car Enthusiast team could get behind and that was the Garia Mansory Edition. Ok so technically it is not a car, it is a golf cart, but it is a golf cart constructed of carbon fibre and it has a fridge in the dashboard, a teak-lined interior and adjustable suspension settings for 'Golf, Street and Race' modes. Certainly would have saved our feet at the show.
