2013 Geneva Motor Show: Mansory Stallone upgrades the Ferrari F12berlinetta

Article by Christian A., on March 4, 2013

Sports cars are a thing of beauty and speed. But when these are enhanced to become even better than their original versions, then what you get are already impressive cars made even more sophisticated and revved up. The Mansory company from Brand in Bavaria, Germany, has long been synonymous with churning out impressive refinements of super sports cars. Whether it’s a Bugatti Veyron or a Bentley Continental, Mansory has ensured these cars emerge more comfortable and sporty than when these came out of the assembly line.

Now Mansory has brought its Stallone conversion to the Ferrari F12, and the results have been absolutely astounding. As it is, the Ferrari F12 already boasts of a powerful engine performance. Mansory Stallone has further improved this with its refinement program which specializes in light carbon bodywork as well as light-alloy rims designed to give the car the perfect finish. Even the F12 interior was not spared from Mansony’s enhancements as it dressed the F12 in the finest leather rounds off the program to guarantee the satisfaction of the discriminating clientele.

The Mansory Stallone has taken great lengths to see to it that the F12 is fitted only with high-quality body parts forged from carbon fibre. The front was completely reworked with a newly designed bonnet as well as a downforce-generating front spoiler with special air intakes which impeccably merge into the wing sections, thus giving the F12 a more masculine look. In addition, it fits the side skirts which relaxes the air flow between the axles. The rear end, also reworked with a new design, has a discreet rear wing and the integrated diffuser ensures a perfectly shaped end as well as stabilizes the rear axle and adds downforce when necessary.

Mansory wanted the F12 to optimize performance, so the Mansory put a premium on developing new engine components for this model of the Ferrari. The power kit includes a modified ECU and a sports exhaust system. This improves the performance of the 6.0 litre twelve-cylinder engine, boosting its output from 740 to 775 hp (570kW). Then it adds 35 Nm to the torque (Series: 690 Nm). Meanwhile, the sporty appearance of the Mansory-enhanced F12 is matched with the sound produced by its stainless steel sports muffler.

In the process, Mansory has made the Ferrari F12 offer better handling and acceleration. For this purpose, Mansory Stallone developed especially light forged wheels in 21 (for the front axle) or 22 (for the rear axle) specifically for the F12. Because ultra-light aluminium alloys were used, the unsprung mass was reduced. And this resulted to improvements in acceleration, handling, and braking distance. The vehicle was also fitted with high-performance 255/30/21 front and 355/25/22 rear tyres.

Even the F12 interior was not spared from Mansony’s enhancement as it dressed the F12 in the finest leather rounds, both durable and soft, to guarantee the satisfaction of the automotive wishes of the discriminating clientele. Once you get inside Mansory Stallone’s Ferrari F12, you will be greeted by the finest uniquely grained leather made with the most precise handiwork. The Ferrari 12 is a visual delight, not just on the outside but more so in the interior. Outstanding craftmanship as evidenced by the stylish stitching and the use of carbon fibre makes the interior feel more elegant and sportier. Additional aesthetic enhancements include the illuminated door sill trim, the aluminium pedals, and the ergonomically-designed sport steering wheel. With all these, MANSORY STALLONE has made the Ferrari F12 a true automotive masterpiece.

Mansory Stallone

The MANSORY company has already made a name for itself all around the world, when it comes to the refining of super sports cars. Whether it's a Bugatti Veyron or a Bentley Continental - the luxury cars have even more sportiness and comfort breathed into them. Now, the specialist from Brand in Bavaria, Germany, has taken the Ferrari F12 and proven again with the STALLONE conversion that the company knows how to refine Italian super sports cars.

The refinement program for the Ferrari F12 is performed especially in light carbon bodywork. There also is a powerful engine performance increase, as well as light-alloy rims manufactured specifically for the car. An interior dressed in the finest leather rounds off the program and meets the automotive wishes of the exclusive clientele.

The MANSORY STALLONE has become a feast for the eyes due to the high-quality body parts. The engineers and designers have delved very deeply into the matter, which explains the consequent use of carbon fibre. So for example, the front was completely reworked. Part of the expressive front is a newly designed bonnet as well as a downforce-generating front spoiler with special air intakes, which seamlessly merges into the wing sections. With the broadening MANSORY has given the Ferrari F12 a more masculine appearance. It also fits the side skirts, which in addition calms down the air flow between the axles. The newly designed rear end, with a discreet rear wing and the integrated diffuser ensures not only a perfectly shaped end, it also stabilizes the rear axle and provides for the necessary addition of downforce.

MANSORY has given special attention to the performance optimisation, which provides the car from Maranello even more handling and acceleration in all performance classes. The MANSORY technicians are responsible for the newly developed engine components. The power kit consists of a modified ECU together with a sports exhaust system. This increases the performance of the 6.0 litre twelve-cylinder engine from 740 to 775 hp (570kW). The torque lies at an additional 35 Nm (Series: 690 Nm). The stainless steel sports muffler with its impressive sound underlines the sporty appearance of the MANSORY STALLONE.

The newly developed light-alloy rims represent a perfect finish. They are not only elegantly designed, but also fulfil their purpose from the sporting and technical point of view. In order to take the performance of the STALLONE into account, the company developed especially light forged wheels in 21 (front axle) or 22 (rear axle) sizes. The use of ultra-light aluminium alloys and the resulting reduction of the unsprung mass, has significantly improved the acceleration, the braking distance, and the handling. High-performance 255/30/21 front and 355/25/22 rear tyres are fitted.

The finest materials, finished to highest precision of handiwork, characterise the interior of the MANSORY STALLONE. The leather MANSORY used for the interior is particularly durable yet still extraordinarily soft. The unique graining of the exclusive leather in combination with the stylish stitching and the visible carbon fibre applications convey an air of both elegance and sportiness in the interior. Masterly craftsmanship, individual design and the highest quality wherever the eye can see. The aluminium pedals, the illuminated door sill trim and the newly ergonomically-designed sport steering wheel provide more optical highlights.
