Mansory Turns Ferrari Portofino Into F8 Tributo Fighter

Tuning / Comments

Complete with a retractable roof made entirely of forged carbon fiber.

All eyes were on Ferrari this week as the Italian automaker unveiled the new 812 Competizione. A hardcore version of the 812 Superfast, the Competizione is Ferrari's most powerful road car ever, with a naturally-aspirated 6.5-liter V12 generating 819 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque.

On the other side of the spectrum is the Portofino, Ferrari's entry-level grand tourer. If the Portofino is too soft for you, German tuner Mansory has spruced it up with a carbon fiber exterior makeover and a massive power boost. This is the third custom Prancing Horse Mansory has built this year following the tuner's modified F8 Tributo and 812 GTS. For the first time, Mansory's custom Portofino features an electric retractable roof made entirely out of forged carbon fiber.

This lightweight material has also been applied to slew of exterior components including a new front apron, side flaps, and air outlets in the hood and on the sides of the wings. Custom side skirts, a rear apron and a subtle rear tailgate spoiler are also made of forged carbon. The custom Portofino also rides on lightweight 21-inch forged rims with a surrounding yellow rim edge matching the exterior, wrapped in high-performance tires sized 245/330 21 at the front and 305/25 22 at the back.

Thanks to a retuned engine management system and a custom exhaust system, the Portofino's 3.9-liter twin-turbo V8 now produces 720 hp and 656 lb-ft of torque. This is a significant boost over the standard Portofino, which is rated at 591 hp and 561 lb-ft of torque.

With these extra horses, the Portofino is punching well above its weight: it's even more powerful than the 710-hp F8 Tributo. As a result, the modified Portofino will accelerate from 0-60 mph in three seconds flat - that's 0.5 seconds faster than the standard car. The suspension has also been adapted to help the car cope with the extra power and retain the standard car's comfort on the road.

Inside, the interior is appointed with black leather upholstery accentuated with yellow seams and control buttons matching the exterior. The three buttons on the dual-clutch gearbox are colored in green, white and red, representing the colors of the Italian flag. A sports leather steering wheel, custom floor mats, and embroidered Mansory logos complete the interior upgrades.
