Cars don’t get much more exclusive than the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta, but if you’re worried about pulling onto the King’s Road in Chelsea and seeing an identical one, you might want to hand your baby over to the people at Mansory, who can turn the Italian supercar into something… madder.
Mansory’s Stallone conversion to the F12 Berlinetta is more than just about the aesthetics. Performance from the 6.0-litre V12 is bumped from 740bhp to 775bhp, all thanks to a new sports exhaust and a bit if tinkering with the ECU. You also get 535lb/ft (690Nm) of torque to play with instead of 509lb/ft so it should feel even more sprightly.
Mansory has also worked its ‘magic’ on the styling. Bespoke ultra-lightweight aluminium alloys – 21 inches at the front and 22 inches at the back – accompany a new carbon fibre bodykit. These include a front spoiler and special air intakes, side-skirts that are said to reduce the airflow between the axles, a revised bonnet and a ‘discreet’ rear wing and diffuser that increases downforce.
Inside, Mansory has upholstered the car in a fetching textured leather and added lots of carbon fibre. You also get aluminium pedals to rest your feet on, illuminated door sills and a unique steering wheel.
Mansory has previously offered conversions for an array of supercar marques including Bugatti and Bentley.
Ferrari’s F12 Berlinetta is a beautiful car so many would ask whether a Mansory conversion is really necessary? Let’s just say the Stallone is going to appeal to a certain audience, the sort of owner with deep pockets and a thing for The Fast and Furious.
How much to turn your F12 Berlinetta into something Paul Walker would drive? Mansory is yet to say, although if sir has to ask…
Head over to Mansory’s website and register your interest. After you check in to Specsavers, of course. Did we say that out loud?
