Porsche Panamera facelift by Mansory

Luxury cars and their special style have always been the passion of Kourosh Mansory, the owner and namesake of Mansory. Production on the highest technical level combined with masterly craftsmanship and most precious materials represent the quality standard of the tuning brand. Harmonically designed aerodynamics program, ultra-light aluminium rims and powerful engine performance enhancements are the basis of the Mansory technology program. Criticized by some, appreciated by others, Mansory quietly does what he knows best: tuning programs. And the latest one is applied on the facelift Porsche Panamera.

The Porsche Panamera gets enough modifications from the tuner. We notice a redesigned carbon fiber hood and fender extensions which have widened the car by 70mm. There are also some new LED daytime running lights, big air inlets at the front while the rear bumper gets a more aggressive look and incorporates two huge exhaust pipes. The standard alloys were taken off and a new set of 22-inch forged set featuring a spider web design and wrapped around in 263/30/22 front & 305/25/22 rear tires now equip the vehicle. Carbon fiber is the base material. There are aluminum pedals, illuminated door sill plates with "Mansory" lettering which has also been embroidered onto the bespoke floor mats, too.

Mansory also played some tricks on the powering unit of the Porsche Panamera. The V8 4.8 twin-turbo engine increased output from the standard 520 PS (382 kW) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) to 680 PS (500 kW) and a fantastic 900 Nm (664 lb-ft). If equipped with the optional Sport Chrono package, the Panamera Turbo needs 3.9 seconds until 100 km/h but Mansory's version can do it 0.3 seconds quicker before reaching a maximum speed of 315 km/h. It remains for you to judge or enjoy the tuning program recently released by Mansory, the controversial tuner.
