Ah, Mansory. You can always rely on them to take the art of car customisation just that bit further than anyone else.
Take its latest creation, the Lamborghini Huracan-based Torofeo. It features new bumpers with huge intakes, wide sills, new side intakes, engine cover and race-grade rear diffuser and spoiler, all made from carbonfibre.
But simply adding that would be too easy. So Mansory reskinned the whole car in carbon. They even made the style lines in the door panels more pronounced. But again, simply doing that would be too easy.
Now, with 601bhp from its 5.2-litre V10 engine, no-one has ever accused the Huracan of being underpowered. It does 0-62mph in 3.2 seconds and tops out at 202mph, after all. But that isn’t enough for Mansory, so they added new pistons, conrods, bearings, camshafts, fuelling system and two custom-made turbos. The result is 1,233bhp, more than double the standard power output. We’ll say that again: more than double the standard power output.
Torque is limited to 738lb/ft, so the gearbox and four-wheel-drive system don’t detonate under the strain. 0-62mph drops to 2.7 seconds and top speed is “beyond 340km/h” (211mph).
The suspension has been lowered 25mm and the car rolls on 9×20-inch front and 12.5×21-inch rear forged alloy wheels. And, of course, the interior is trimmed to taste. Or lack thereof. Best of all, though, Mansory has moved the fighter jet-style starter button from the centre console to the ceiling. How cool is that?
We reckon this Mansory Lamborghini goes about as far as anyone could take the Huracan. But we wouldn’t be at all surprised if we’re proved wrong.
