2017 Geneva: Mansory delivers the goods with a stunning Ferrari 4XX Siracusa Spider

Article by Christian A., on March 9, 2017

If there is one thing we can count on Mansory to do right every time, it is in how it does extreme makeover. With many years of practice, it has become a household name when it comes to auto tuning. One reason is because its designs are always a step ahead of competing brands.

Once again, get ready for a treat as the German auto tuner is bringing the house down with its very own 4XX Siracusa Spider. Mansory has redesigned the Ferrari 488 GTB as inspired by the Siracusa coupe that has taken over Switzerland in 2016. For this year however, the German tuning company presents an open-top 488 GTB with extremely designed body work plus an over-the-top performance package that boasts up to 790hp.

After showcasing a range of Mansory-tuned vehicles earlier this week, all eyes are now on the new Mansory Ferrari 4XX Siracusa Spider. The redesigned exterior dons a newly upgraded front fascia with new diffuser, air inlets and a revised front lip. Masonry has also replaced the side skirts on the Ferrari 488 GTB Spider with a new pair of carbon fiber mirror casings and daytime running lights in LED.

At the rear end, the Sirucusa Spider is wearing a Liquid Black carbon fiber rear diffuser with a mix red, white and green color accents. The same color scheme is used on this particular Ferrari’s specially designed split rear spoiler in color black. To complete the extreme facelift, Mansory’s exterior package comes with a new set of wheels fitted to a new set of high performance tires measuring 255/30 (front) and 325/25 (rear).

After the extreme body work, the special improvements on the 488 GTB are seen all the way to its engine performance. Mansory has upgraded the Spider’s 3.9-liter stock engine to deliver as much as 779hp (581kW) and 641lb-ft (870Nm) of torque. Due to this, the Mansory-tuned 4XX Siracusa Spider could sprint from zero to 62mph (100km/h) in just 2.9 seconds before reaching a top speed of 211 miles per hour (341 kilometers per hour). These figures only prove that the tuning house is definitely raising its own game. But there’s more.

In order to handle that added boost in performance, Mansory has upgraded the 488 Spider’s suspension with new lowering springs. This gives the Siracusa 4XX a reduced ride height by 20mm. Also, the complete Mansory package comes with a new sport steering wheel, a newly updated center console and exclusive leather trims with unique stitching design for its interiors. Impressive, right?

For those who can’t get enough, the German tuning specialist is currently showcasing a total of eight vehicle lineups at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show ---including this Ferrari.

The 4XX SIRACUSA SPIDER is MANSORY’s open-top version of the SIRACUSA supercar

The centre piece of this fully overhauled Ferrari 488 Spider is the spectacular bodywork design. However, the engine, wheels and interior have also been given an impressive make-over using the best manufacturing techniques. The best proof of this is the entirely redesigned body design.

Visually impressive but also technologically sophisticated – striking air inlets on the new front apron modified to provide an optimal air flow into the cooling unit. Other modifications include the specially developed front lip to provide better drive and enhanced road-gripping even when pushed to the limits. There are also new and particularly bright day driving lights to increase passive safety.

The car also features imposing side skirts, as well as carbon fibre rear-view mirror housing and front fender bearing the MANSORY’s signature style. Here, too, appearances and function go hand-in-hand: the new Collage Edition carbon components are not only lighter than their series equivalents; they also guide air flow towards the drive unit.

To guarantee optimal air flow within the car, the new rear apron features an integrated diffusor and compact double rear spoiler. The air guidance system in the 4XX SIRACUSA SPIDER not only transfers the power of the bi-turbo eight-cylinder engine onto the road; outlet ducts above the front wheels additionally ensure that hot air does not become stuck.

In addition, there are intake ducts behind the doors to ventilate the engine compartment. MANSORY also paints the cabrio’s Collage Edition carbon fibre in Liquid Black and complements this through tri-colour accents. Ultra-light wheels play their part in both in visual and performance terms. The forged lightweight metal rims combine the highest level of stability with an extremely low weight.

By reducing unsprung weight, the wheels can react in a more agile way and can precisely implement every steering command even under high strain. At the front, 9x20 inch wheels support the high-performance tyres in size 255/30, while the rear wheels transfer the power of the engine onto the road using 325/25 tyres The 3.9-litre engine in the 4XX is guided by an optimised engine management system and a specially tailored exhaust system.

Combined, these provide power of 790 PS (581 kW) at 8,000 RPM. Thanks to torque of 870 Nm at 3,000 RPM, this eight-cylinder can go from 0 to 100 km/h in a breath-taking 2.9 seconds (for the series car: 3.0s). The top speed of 341 km/h (series: 330 km/h) is also considerably faster than the basic model. Special chassis components have been built into the SIRACUSA to withstand the increased engine performance, which consist of four progressively wound lowering springs.

These make the centre of gravity for the vehicle 20 millimetres lower than the series model. Within the interior, MANSORY has created a control centre to perfectly link functionality and comfort: the specially developed sports steering wheel with a mix of leather and carbon fibre, and the redesigned centre console control unit guarantee optimal control of the vehicle.

The interior of this supercar also radiates luxury – all interior components are clothed in leather and accented using coloured stitching. 4XX logos on the seats, foot mats and door sill trims round off the refinement programme.
