Mansory reveals modified MP4-12C in time for Geneva Motor Show

Article by Anita Panait, on March 1, 2012

Mansory prides itself as a supplier of valuable automobile possessions and so, as the 2012 Geneva Motor Show approaches, it unveiled a heavily modified McLaren MP4-12C that suits its prestige and pride. One look at the Mansory modified MP4-12C and one could tell right away how it’s different from the series vehicles. Mansory gave the McLaren MP4-12C a body package that features ultralight bonnet with exposed carbon-fibre sections and proprietary daytime driving lights. The company also implemented a number of design measures aimed at boosting the car’s aerodynamics, like increasing the car’s width by 60 millimetres by installing carbon fibre-wings.

The wings are not only the components made of carbon fibre, hardened by high pressure and temperature,  but also the car’s roof, the front and rear apron, and the mirror housing. Mansory’s high-tech innovation significantly decreased the car’s weight, thus improving its acceleration values, braking distance and fuel consumption. Mansory also redesigned the MP4-12C’s side sill to allow airflow to be steady between the two axles.

The company also installed a wing profile, which when combined with the diffuser, allows greater contact pressure on the rear axle. The upgrade includes a new engine-management system, high-performance exhaust system, and a sports air filter with increased air throughflow. When working together, they result in an engine power of 670 PS / 493 kW at 7,100 rpm, compared to series’ 608 PS / 447 kW at 7,000 rpm regular output.  The upgrade also allowed the engine to reach a maximum torque of a whopping 675 Nm at the range of 3,000 to 6,500 rpm, compared with the series’ 600 Nm at 3,000 - 6,500. This vastly increased the MP4-12C’s top speed to 353 km/h. Mansory also fitted the MP4-12C with ultralight robust metal wheels, with wheel-tire set up of 9.0Jx20-inch wheel for 245/30ZR20 tires at the front. Mansory also paired the 11Jx21-inch wheels with 305/25ZR21 tyres at the rear.
