Just because something is expensive doesn't mean it's pretty.
For better or worse, we've grown quite familiar with Mansory and its simply outrageous styling decisions. And when we say "simply outrageous" we really mean downright hideous. The German tuning firm’s work has extended from Mercedes-Benz and BMW to Bentley and Rolls-Royce and even to supercars from Lamborghini and Bugatti. And this year's Geneva show, we're sorry to say, has been no exception. Because what Mansory has done to this F12 is simply inexcusable.
Mansory has taken the drool-worthy Ferrari F12 Berlinetta and transformed it into the puke-inducing Stallone. It’s not named after the incomprehensible actor, but we still can't understand what Mansory has done to it and why. The supercar's exterior gains a number of styling updates (we dare not say "upgrades") including a redesigned hood and carbon-fiber aero kit, complete with a new bumper, front-lip and trunk-lid spoilers, side skirts, vents and rear diffuser. A new set of alloys (21 inches up front and 22 at the back) round out the visual changes. Mansory didn't stop there, "expressing" itself all over the interior, too.
Mansory redid the entire cabin in red and black leather with a swerve stitching pattern and carbon fiber surfaces. There’s also a new flat-bottom steering wheel, aluminum pedals and illuminated door sills. The German tuner further modified the F12’s 6.3-liter V12 via a reworked ECU and new exhaust. Together these new elements increase output from 730 horsepower and 509 lb-ft of torque to 764 hp and 535 lb-ft. It's hard to argue with that bit, but looking at the visual mods, it's even harder to imagine that Mansory knows better than Ferrari does. Pricing wasn't announced, but we're not asking.
