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 2014 Porsche Panamera.

The 2014 Porsche Panamera Turbo facelift received plenty of new visual elements from the tuner. It is equipped with a restyled carbon fiber front hood, new fender extensions, LED DRLs (daytime running lights), big air inlets, modified rear bumper and a new diffuser housing two huge exhaust tailpipes. The cour-door coupe grew in width by 70mm (35 mm per side) giving it unique stance and presence. It has also been equipped with a set of 9.5J x 22-inch and 11.5J x 22-inch forged alloy wheels wrapped around 265/30 R22 and 305/25 R22 front and rear rubbers.

On the inside, we notice carbon fiber trim elements, a set of aluminum pedals, illuminated door-sills with Mansory sign and new bespoke floor mats. Almost all the interior components are upholstered by master craftsmen in leather. Mansory also played the power boost card on this Porsche Panamera. The 4.8 liter twin-turbocharged V8 powering unit’s capacity is raised to 680HP (500 kW) and 900Nm (664 lb-ft) of torque, this meaning an increase of 160HP and 200Nm. The coupe finishes the 0-100 km/h run in 3.6 seconds and reaches a maximum speed of 315 km/h (197 mph). This means it is 0.3 seconds and 5 km/h faster than the stock vehicle. On the whole we are dealing with a complex project here and it’s up to you to decide how good it is.
