Mansory Sanguis Bentley Continental GT 2013
German luxury automotive tuner, Mansory, has presented its modification program for the Bentley Continental GT, called the Mansory Sanguis, at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. The car’s series model is already one of the most exclusive that money can buy. But Mansory’s deluxe manufactory has taken this a step further and created a top-level customisation of the second generation of the British Gran-Turismo.
Sanguis has placed great emphasis on perfectly tailored parts while maintaining a sporty, individual design. A newly designed front apron, with proprietary daytime driving lights, an extra-light carbon-fibre bonnet and carbon-fibre front wings, give the Sanguis a significantly heftier look. The new rear apron delivers additional downthrust and creates space for the exhaust pipes of the thunderous exhaust system. Other modifications include a sports air filter, ten double-spoke 22-inch wheels and several interior enhancements like new leather, wood trim, aluminum pedals and door sills.
Mansory technicians have placed special emphasis on rich performance improvements. The engine performance graph boosts the power to 672 PS / 494 kW at 6,000 rpm. The torque is also raised to a strapping 780 Nm at 1,700 rpm. The modified 12-cylinder reduces the time to go from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) to just 4.5 seconds and increases the top speed to 322 km/h (200 mph).
