German tuner gives the British grand tourer a widebody kit, power boost and outrageous red interior.
Dubbed theSanguis, Mansory’s take on the latest Bentley Continental GT will be unveiled at theGeneva show this week. Renowned for lacking a subtle touch, Mansory hasgiven the British luxury cruiser a widebody kit complete with carbon-fiberhood, front wings and new rear fenders, as well as redesigned frontapron with DLRs and a side still set that joins the wider track at 50 mm up frontand 60 mm at the rear. A new rear apron makes room for a sports exhaust systemwhile 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.
