2014 Geneva: Mansory Vivere makes the Bugatti Veyron even more exclusive

Article by Christian A., on March 3, 2014

Few years ago, Mansory unveiled the Linea Vincero, a customized version of the Bugatti Veyron hypercar that delivered an impressive 1109 hp and 1310 Nm of torque. For the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, the tuning company is taking once again on the Bugatti Veyron and it unveiled the strictly limited Vivere.

Compared to the Vincero, the Vivere received a facelift consisting of modified wings, a shortened bonnet as well as a redesigned front apron.

The stylised “V” used pays hommage to the name Vivere, while the integrated LED daytime running lights in the front section create a particular accent. Moving to the side, we find newly developed side skirts that act as a visual and aerodynamic link between the two axles. The large air outlets on the flanks and at the rear give optimized motor cooling.

Moreover, the rear end comes with a new air diffuser and two air intakes that underline the transition from roof to bonnet. According to Mansory, almost al the bodywork components from ultra light, highly strong carbon fibre.

The new Vivere also comes with a five double-spoke wheels. Inside, we find hand-picked materials and a confident design that creates a car interior in a class all of its own.

Mansory also used an LED ambient lighting system in the seats, door furniture and the instrument panel, that underline the high quality carbon fibre applications and the skillfully quilted black and white leather. The new, ergonomically designed airbag steering wheel looks sporty with great grip.

Through four larger turbochargers with updated intercoolers, the 199 hp increase over the Grand Sport has been accomplished. For consistent safe transmission of force, Bugatti extensively secured all drivetrain gears. In particular, the gearing of the seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox (DSG) has been adjusted to meet the new requirements.

In the same perspective, Bugatti has also improved the air ducting in the field of the drivetrain. As a result of the overall reduced back pressure and larger turbochargers, fuel economy is made more possible despite increased performance. The fuel system was derived from the Super Sport having a four-pump tank.

Chassis

Engineers have reconfigured Vitesse’s chassis in order to apply the unprecedented power on the road safely and accurately. The responsive dampers that have been adapted from racing are responsible for the improvement and balance of the vehicle’s control. Inconvenience during hard acceleration brought by pitching and body roll are now almost imperceptible. Improved wheel-load variants have been reduced further under steer and allow a full dynamic safety.

Aside from the unparalleled lateral acceleration (up to 1.4 g), the precision of the tires (on lighter 20-inch "Vitesse"-type alloy wheels) combined with the smart all-wheel drive system, guarantees extremely good handling.

The all-wheel-drive system, the chassis and the revised ESP make a dynamic union. In instances when you accelerate in corners, the Grand Sport Vitesse also gives a more dynamic performance in these circumstances since the ESP that has been reconfigured activates slightly later. Needless to say, the Bugatti has refined the system of brake-cooling that results to a greater engine output.

MANSORY VIVERE

MANSORY are adding to their modified Bugatti Veyron 16.4 range with the VIVERE. After the exclusive luxury car specialist's presentation of the VINCERO in March 2009, MANSORY dazzle once more with their artistry as a car modifier, and they have transformed the Bugatti Veyron into the strictly limited MANSORY VIVERE with a number of targeted touches.

Compared to its predecessor the VINCERO, the VIVERE has received a comprehensive facelift at the front, consisting of modified wings, a shortened bonnet and a striking front apron. The integrated LED daytime running lights in the front section create a particular accent, and the stylised "V" used pays hommage to the name VIVERE. The newly developed side skirts act as a visual and aerodynamic link between the two axles. Larger air outlets on the flanks of the vehicle and at the rear give optimised motor cooling, and together with the new diffuser and the two air intakes, they underline the transition from roof to bonnet on this powerful car design. MANSORY manufacture almost all the bodywork components from ultra light, highly strong carbon fibre. The hardening process employed, under high pressure and temperature in the autoclave radically improves the material quality.

Further refinements complete the VIVERE: Striking alloy wheels with a five double-spoke design harmonise perfectly with the production tyres, both visually and technically. The interior is exclusive yet functional. MANSORY know just how to combine luxury and engineering with the demands of an exclusive limited edition vehicle, in a harmonious way. Traditional craftsmanship, hand-picked materials and a confident design come together and create a car interior in a class all of its own. In this regard, the LED's of the ambient lighting system in the seats, door furniture and the instrument panel catch the eye above all. The whole passenger compartment glows in the light from the courtesy lights, setting the high quality carbon fibre applications and the skillfully quilted black and white leather off beautifully. The new, ergonomically designed airbag steering wheel looks sporty with great grip.
