(from Mansory Press
Release) MANSORY Ferrari 458 Spider in a limited Monaco
The refining of super
sports cars is more than just a business for MANSORY. The love of
detail, and of the special and unique are the driving force for
extraordinary customisations. The latest stroke of genius from the
firm has demonstrated this powerfully once more. The MANSORY Monaco
Edition which is limited to just 3 vehicles of the Ferrari 458
Spider doesn't just make the pulses of convertible fans beat faster.
Alongside more power and a much improved look the team of firm owner
Kourosh Mansory has especially optimised the vehicle's weight.
Already in the serial
version of the Ferrari Spider the ultralight and high-strength
material carbon finds abundant uses. And MANSORY has consistently
used this in his Monaco Edition as a main part of all his bodywork
components. Every single element of the aerodynamic design is made
in perfect surface quality and precisely built into the vehicle.
An eye-catching new
feature of the newly styled Ferrari front is the striking skirt with
the optimised air intakes for improved ventilation of the front
radiator. In combination with the new bonnet MANSORY not only
achieved an aggressive look but also generated additional drive.
Newly designed side sills have been added. These steady the air flow
between the axles and feed additional cooling air into the engine
compartment through integrated routing channels. The diffuser built
into the new rear skirt stabilises the back at high speeds and
creates downforce together with the serial rear wing on the rear
axle. Overall the refining specialist achieves a weight saving of
around 60 kilograms compared to a standard Ferrari 458 Spider by
carbon components specially heated in their own autoclave.
But the MANSORY
convertible does not impress only with its fascinating design. As a
result of an optimised engine management, a sports air filter and a
sports exhaust system engine performance as well as acceleration
both improve significantly.
Thanks to 590 hp / 434
kW and 560 Nm the eight-cylinder accelerates from zero to one
hundred (km/h) in a breathtaking 3.2 seconds. The top speed is 330
km/h which is also higher than the base vehicle.
Specially suited for the
improved engine performance as well as sporty driving are the
chassis components built into the MANSORY two-seater. These are made
up of four sports shock absorbers in a unit with progressively wound
lowering springs. In this way the vehicle's centre of gravity is
dropped by 20 mm in comparison with the series models.
As the perfect wheel-tyre
combination MANSORY has built forged rims with central locking in 9
x 11 and 11 x 21 dimensions with Michelin PS2 tyres in the VA
245/35, ZR20 and HA 305/30 ZR21 sizes.
Also the interior has
profited from the MANSORY refining. The MANSORY upholsterer has
effectively combined the finest materials such as finest leather,
Alcantara and carbon fibre in Monaco's colours of red and white.
The leather work of the
master craftsmen is particularly durable yet still extraordinarily
soft. This characteristic natural product with its graining and the
perfect hand stitching gives an air of extravagant flair all around
the newly designed middle console. A further highlight is the newly
designed full size airbag sports steering wheel as well as the
aluminium pedals. MANSORY has achieved the perfect
symbiosis of sporty functionality and luxurious ambience.

GmbH offers only its in-house developed tuning accessories. The
company does not offer its own make as "complete" vehicle, neither
