2012 MANSORY Bentley Continental GT
MANSORY is the address when it comes to the exclusive customisation of luxury cars. The company from the town of Brand near Bayreuth in Bavaria proves this once again with the new Bentley Continental GT. A complete individualisation range is available for the exclusive coupé, giving the Bentley a significantly more sporty touch than before.
Even the car’s bodywork elements give a dynamic impression as well as ensuring greater aerodynamics. The car’s front and rear apron with integrated diffuser for example reduce the lift of the two-door car, resulting in a considerable improvement to its handling and agility. Making a significant contribution to this is the side skirt set, which significantly reduces the flow of air between both axles. A spoiler lip attached to the boot lid also ensures the necessary downforce for the car. In order to optimise the Continental GT’s weight, MANSORY has replaced the front fender as well as the engine bonnet with its own carbon creations. But that’s not all – all MANSORY aerodynamic components are manufactured from very strong yet ultra-light prepreg autoclave carbon.
The modifications made by MANSORY are as sporty as the performance-optimised 6.0 litre bi-turbo engine is powerful. Thanks to the use of a reprogrammed engine management system, a sports air filter and a sports exhaust system, the car’s power is boosted to 672 hp / 495 kW at 6000 revs per minute while the torque is increased to 780 Nm at 1700 revs per minute. An impressive 12-cylinder rumble can also be heard.
The wheel range impresses both in terms of sizes and diversity. Whether it’s sporty and striking or elegant and regal – MANSORY offers varying wheel designs and sizes. One of the technical highlights in the range available is a 22-inch alloy wheel. Because of the forging technology employed during the manufacturing stage, this wheel is especially light while its reduced unsprung mass results in better handling as well as improved acceleration and braking. The recommended wheel/tyre combination for the front and rear axles is 10.0J x 22-inch wheels with tyres of size 295/25ZR22.
In the car’s interior, MANSORY achieves perfect symbiosis between sporty functionality and a luxurious ambience. Only the finest materials are used here, ensuring a feeling of comfort throughout. Particularly durable yet extraordinarily soft is the carbon leather, which has been processed by the best master craftsmen. Thanks to the typical carbon look and expertly handcrafted decorative stitching, the cockpit exudes an air of extravagance all around the redesigned airbag sports wheel. The aluminium pedals and illuminated door sill plates round off MANSORY’s range for the Bentley Continental GT.
