Mansory’s designs may be acquired taste, but there is no doubt about the craftsmanship and attention to detail that are applied to each of his structures.
A good example is the new LeMansory based in Ford GT, which Mansory developed on the occasion of its 30th anniversary this year. Only three will be built (one for each decade of Mansory’s existence), and all will be the same shade of blue known as the Bleurion race.
The body of the Donor GT was replaced by Mansory’s own carbon fiber design and is almost two centimeters wider than the body of the original GT. The front of the car is the biggest difference compared to the donor GT. Mansory installed its own headlights and a new carbon fiber design in the form of self-made fish scales.
According to Mansory, the aggressive design of the LeMansory is fully functional as it helps generate more downforce and inject more air into the engine area. The latter is particularly important because Mansory has also improved the performance of the GT’s 3.5-liter dual-turbo V6.
In the LeMansory, the engine delivers 700 hp and 620 pounds of torque. For comparison, the latest version of the Ford GT has 660 horsepower and 550 pound feet. With the extra thrust and new aerodynamics, according to Mansory, the LeMansory will reach a top speed of 220 mph, compared to 215 mph for the original GT.
Mansory says it has also made certain chassis modifications to the car, including the addition of its own 21-inch wheels (9 x 21 inches at the front and 12 x 21 inches at the rear) wrapped with Continental Sport Contact 6 tires.
The interior was also completely redesigned, with Mansory designers taking a more exclusive approach than Ford’s raw racing car style. Alcantara was used to cover many touch points, and a blue and white color scheme gives the cabin a little more life.
The price is not listed, but we believe that you need at least seven digits in the bank. Mansory has also not indicated whether the buyer should insure his own Ford GT. Ford does not sell the car to anyone, although first-time buyers can now sell their car on the second-hand market after the two-year waiting period.
