Ferrari fans probably won't like what Mansory has done here.
We've already seen Novitec's take on the Ferrari 812 GTS last month, and now German tuner Mansory has modified the open-top grand tourer too, after recently ruining the Ford GT. Along with Liberty Walk, Mansory's conversions are some of the most controversial in the tuning scene, and this customized Ferrari 812 Superfast GTS dubbed the "Stallone GTS" is no exception. These modifications are not for the faint of heart.
Mansory's comprehensive conversion gives the Ferrari 812 GTS more power and a striking makeover, but we're not impressed by the latter. At the front, Mansory has fitted a hideous front apron, while molded side skirts adorn the profile. As you can imagine, the rest of the car is just as sickening.
An aggressive diffuser dominates the rear along with a massive rear wing. These components are finished in carbon fiber, giving the 812 Superfast GTS a busy, unresolved appearance.
Inside, the Stallone GTS features a specially-designed sports steering wheel and aluminum pedals. Just about every part of the interior is upholstered in blue leather with contrasting carbon accents, including the steering wheel, dashboard, and seats. Embroidered Mansory logos and illuminated door sill panels round off the interior modifications. Mansory's modifications aren't restricted to the 'adventurous' aesthetics, however, because the tuner has tinkered under the hood to extract more power from the 6.5 liter V12.
With 789 horsepower and 530 lb-ft of torque on tap, the standard car is no slouch, but Mansory's revised ECU and sports exhaust system has boosted the output to 830 hp with 545 lb-ft of torque. Thanks to this extra muscle, the Stallion GTS will sprint from 0-62 mph in 2.8 seconds, which is 0.1 seconds faster than the standard car. Top speed also increases to 214 mph, up from 211 mph in the regular 812 GTS. To refine the driving experience, Mansory has adapted the suspension components and fitted lightweight forged 21-inch wheels wrapped in high-performance tires measuring 265/30 ZR21 (VA) and 335/25 ZR22. This all adds up to one serious attention-grabber, but we'd rather have the standard car.
