This is what Mansory can do to your Ferrari 296 GTB
Looking to ‘personalise’ your new hybridised Ferrari? Maybe this will convince you to think again
Mansory has unveiled its take on the Ferrari 296 GTB, and for once the exterior design is actually quite restrained.
Well, restrained for Mansory that is. There’s still masses of forged carbon fibre, a strange sideburns spoiler setup, a massive new diffuser and much more, but it’s mostly painted black with a small amount of red detailing and little Italian flags on the end of those winglets.
There are new lightweight forged wheels that are 21in up front and 22in at the rear, but they’re also painted black with red brake calipers behind. Is this a new Mansory we’re seeing?
Well, perhaps not, because the inside is distinctly more… colourful. This particular ‘Mansory Tempesta’ take on the 296 gets a supremely bright yellow leather retrim of its interior with red detailing and plenty more exposed carbon fibre. Heck, we’re not sure we could handle the 296’s bonkers 818bhp V6 hybrid powertrain while looking at that dash.
But wait, because it’s not just the standard 818bhp that’s on tap. Mansory will fit a new sports exhaust system and a new ECU for the 3.0-litre V6 to up the total power to 858bhp and 553lb ft of torque. That means 0-62mph in 2.8 seconds (0.1 seconds quicker than the ‘standard’ car) and a top speed of 205mph.
Worryingly, Mansory also warns that there is “much more to come”. Uh oh…
