Mansory’s individualised program for the Range Rover Autobiography LWB has been introduced at the IAA Frankfurt Motor Show 2015. The package follows on from the tuning company’s previous work with the Range Rover Sport and Range Rover Vogue models and represents its first foray into the Autobiography model.
As the car is all about luxury, let’s start there. Inside, Mansory has appointed the Range Rover Autobiography LWB with hand-crafted leather with only the very best hides being selected for use. Also found within is decorative stitching, electrically controlled curtains to separate the driver and front passenger from the rear passengers. New tinted windows are also found throughout as are many alcantara surfaces. Mansory’s interior for the Autobiography LWB is of course completely customisable with ornamental wood, piano lacquer and carbon fibre accents available to order.
Exterior wise, the changes are just as comprehensive. For example, there is a new bonnet, radiator grille with horizontal slats, quad fog lights, LED daytime running lights and new air intakes. Additionally, the wheel arches have been flared at both the front and the rear while extended side skirts have been fitted. All told, the Mansory Range Rover Autobiography LWB is 60 mm wider than the standard car.
The vehicle is riding on a set of 22-inch wheels at all four corners with massive 305 tyres. The Germany tuner can also drop the vehicle’s ride height by 45 mm if requested by the customer. At the rear, some of the most noteworthy changes is the large rooftop spoiler, new bumper and bespoke dual tailpipes.
“MANSORY Switzerland presents the luxuriously individualised styling of the Range Rover Autobiography with long wheelbase.
Following the success of the MANSORY refinement program developed for the Range Rover Sport and Range Rover Vogue models, MANSORY now unveils the current Range Rover Autobiography fully individualised edition with long wheelbase. The MANSORY Luxus SUV is presented with increased dynamics, added luxury and best of all, more features than the standard model. An automotive dream, meeting the highest possible demands of driving pleasure and now privacy, thanks to the interior partition.
For a long time now, impressive styling has characterised the lift-reducing MANSORY bodywork components. Yet again, Kourosh Mansory, the name and mastermind behind MANSORY Design & Holding Gmbh has proved his expertise, and he has redesigned the Range Rover, making it a real eye-catcher on and off the road.
One component of the striking front design is the spoiler, which is much racier with its over-sized cooling air intakes and integrated daytime-running lights. The two ventilation ducts on the super-light, carbon reinforced bonnet ensure additional extraction of the heat accumulated in the front engine. The radiator grille is made of carbon fibre and the carbon front spoiler complete the impressive front.
Added width on the wings gives the MANSORY Range Rover its highly individual flair. Supplemented by its side skirts, an impressive 60 mm are added to the production-series body, conveying a message of pure power, even when standing still. The ultra-light carbon fibre rear spoiler, with integrated diffuser, provides enough space for the modern design of the tailpipes on the sports exhaust system. It fits seamlessly into the overall package of the vehicle. As an option, carbon fibre components such as roof spoiler, C-pillar cladding, air vents in the front doors and mirror housing can be painted to match the vehicle’s colour.
Highest technical standards, combined with sporty elegance are the hallmark of the MANSORY-8/1 wheel design. Not only is the look of the single-part forged wheel with its eight double-spoke design impressive, but so is its sophisticated manufacturing quality. The diamond-polished front and rear rims are available in size 10 x 22 inches. The use of ultra-light aluminium alloys and the resulting reduction of the unsprung mass, significantly improve the acceleration, the braking distance, and the handling. MANSORY recommends MANSORY Vredestein ULTRAC VORTI tyres size 305/35/ZR22 as the perfect tyres.
The XXL wheels are also shown off beautifully by the MANSORY sports module for controlling the suspension. On request, the centre of gravity of the five-door edition can be lowered by 45 mm.
This impressive appearance is supported by the increased powerful performance of the diesel and petrol engines. MANSORY offers a power box for the V8 supercharged engine with 510 PS/375 kW, which can be easily installed using a plug & play process. Installing this increases power up to 44k W/60 PS and adds 70 Nm torque more than the standard series. Furthermore, acceleration benefits clearly from this additional power. Acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h drops to 4.6 seconds (5.3 seconds for the standard model).
Only the finest materials find their way into the car’s interior, ensuring the greatest sense of comfort. The hand-crafted leather, used in the interior, is extremely resilient, but still tremendously soft. The MANSORY upholsterers use only flawless natural hides for use in the interior, with discreet decorative stitching. The partition which uses electrically controlled curtains in order to separate the driver from the rear of the vehicle is an absolute highlight of the interior. Along with tinted windows, the partition guarantees absolute privacy for the rear seat passengers and plenty of legroom.
Whether it is ornamental wood, piano lacquer, carbon fibre, or Alcantara – whatever your heart’s desire, it is available at MANSORY.
From personalised foot mats to complete interior leather finish, everything is made with the highest degree of craftsmanship and precision, individually designed and integrated into the vehicle.
