German tuner gives the British grand tourer a widebody kit, power boost and outrageous red interior.
Dubbed the Sanguis, Mansory’s take on the latest Bentley Continental GT will be unveiled at the Geneva show this week. Renowned for lacking a subtle touch, Mansory has given the British luxury cruiser a widebody kit complete with carbon-fiber hood, front wings and new rear fenders, as well as redesigned front apron with DLRs and a side still set that joins the wider track at 50 mm up front and 60 mm at the rear. A new rear apron makes room for a sports exhaust system while improving downforce.
With a set of 22-inch ten-spoke alloys completing the new look, Mansory got to work boosting the Continental GT’s output by adding a sports air filter and optimized ECU. The new figures stand at 672 horsepower and 575 lb-ft of torque, up from 567 hp and 516 lb-ft, propelling the modified W12-powered grand tourer from 0-62 mph in 4.5 seconds and on to a top speed of 201 mph. The unfortunately hideous interior features a redesigned sports steering wheel, aluminum pedals, new door entry sills and Makassar ebony wood elements.
