First Look: Mansory Tunes Wild Range Rover Sport
Wish Mansory would get its hands on a Range Rover Sport? Your prayers have been answered. The Swiss tuner recently revealed its latest project-- a sinister, slammed version of Range Rover's performance model.
Although the mixture of black paint with carbon fiber exterior trim is a subtle combination in Mansory's wild world, the tuner has fitted a number of body parts that err on the side of extreme. A new carbon fiber hood features an enlarged air intake, while gargantuan air intakes all but dominate the revised front fascia. Both front and rear fenders were flared by 2.4 and 3.1 inches, respectively, allowing the tuner to bolt on massive 23-inch wheels. New rocker panels help tie the flared arches together, while a revised rear bumper fascia incorporates parallelogram-shaped exhaust tips.
Inside, the standard interior -- which isn't exactly anything to sneeze at -- is scrapped in favor of a two-tone scheme trimmed with leather hides. Seating surfaces now receive quilted leather, while other trim pieces, including the dash pad, steering wheel, and arm rests, are treated to contrasting stitching. Drilled aluminum pedals and flat-bottomed steering wheel were also specially crafted for the model, as are custom floor mats with embroidered Mansory logos.
Mansory's Range Rover Sport isn't all show and no go. The Swiss tuner claims it can add an extra 30 horsepower and 30 pound-feet of torque to any of the Sport's stock engine offerings, thanks in part to a new intake, exhaust, and engine computer. Expect models with the normally aspirated direct-injection 5.0-liter V-8 to now produce close to 405 horsepower and 405 pound-feet of torque; Supercharged models will now produce in the realm of 540 horsepower and 491 pound-feet of torque.
In typical Mansory fashion, the tuner isn't talking pricing on this wild beast, but rest assured these upgrades add a sizable chunk of change to the Range Rover Sport's $60,495 price tag.
