Mansory – through its subsidiary Mansory Switzerland AG – is presenting its own refreshing yet captivating version of the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show. First off, the already powerful engine of the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S is further refined to eke out a performance that would surely please its drivers.
Taking charge is Mansory's engine department, which decided to pull out the serial turbo loader and replace it with a larger unit. Thanks to a substantially enhanced fresh air supply as well as a fine-tuned engine management, the engine has become more efficient and is now able to develop up to 710 hp (522 kW) of output and up to 900 Nm of torque.
With this amount of power, the Mansory Chopster, which is based on the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S, could go as fast as of 302 km/h. Complementing the engine upgrade was the installation of a sport exhaust system with an optimized off-gas stream.
Regulating the audio profile of the Chopster is a proprietary development made up of a racing header and a four-pipe baffler. Drivers could choose whether to make the vehicle produce a powerful or a restrained sound using the integrated valve control.
To match the dynamic power coming from the powerful engine, the Chopster needs complementing elements to optimize its handling and road-holding attributes. For instance, the Chopster features a Mansory sport module for air suspension control.
This suspension allows the SUV´s center of gravity to be further lowered by around 45 mm. Excellent braking for the Chopster comes courtesy of a lavishly sized dimensioned sport brake system with 420 mm x 40 mm brake discs at the front and 375 x 30 mm brake discs on the back -- as grabbed by the vehicle's front eight- and the back four piston system.
Made wider by 80 mm due to its special wings, the Chopster rides on fully forged 11 × 23-inch mono block rims in turbine design wrapped in Michelin Latitude tires sized 315/25/23. This special wheel/tire combination gives the larger braking system enough space for installation.
Fascinatingly, the Chopster features extensively modified body made from ultra-light and high-strength material carbon. In fact, a number of parts and components of the Chopster -- front or rear apron, doors, bonnet or the wing -- are made from carbon.
All carbon components were hardened under strong pressure and high temperatures in the autoclave. The use of carbon has allowed Mansory to further reduce the Chopster's weight and improve its acceleration, but it has also trimmed the vehicle's braking distance and reduced its fuel consumption. Since the roofline of the Mansory Chopster has been lowered by 60 mm, it now features a lower front surface that gives the vehicle a sporty appearance while improving both its aerodynamics and appearance.
Additionally, the vehicle features large air inlets that allow for an optimal air supply for the drive unit. Moreover, the front end of the Chopster now features four extra headlamps for better passive safety. Of course, a refinement from Mansory would not dare exclude the interior.
For the Chopster, with its superbly resilient yet remarkably soft perfect leather skins, is matched by decorative stitching from the Mansory upholstery experts. Providing a luxurious theme inside the Chopster are monitor screens in the front head rests, DVD player and laptop with internet access as well as refrigerator.
Moreover, the Chopster features airbag sports steering wheel, pedals made of aluminum and real carbon applications. On the other hand, the car's single back seats comfortably hug their occupants as needed.
