The MANSORY Monaco Edition which is limited to just 3 vehicles of the Ferrari 458 Spider doesn’t just make the pulses of convertible fans beat faster. Alongside more power and a much improved look the team of firm owner Kourosh Mansory has especially optimised the vehicle’s weight.
An eye-catching new feature of the newly styled Ferrari front is the striking skirt with the optimised air intakes for improved ventilation of the front radiator. In combination with the new bonnet MANSORY not only achieved an aggressive look but also generated additional drive. Newly designed side sills have been added. These steady the air flow between the axles and feed additional cooling air into the engine compartment through integrated routing channels. The diffuser built into the new rear skirt stabilises the back at high speeds and creates downforce together with the serial rear wing on the rear axle. Overall the refining specialist achieves a weight saving of around 60 kilograms compared to a standard Ferrari 458 Spider by carbon components specially heated in their own autoclave.
But the MANSORY convertible does not impress only with its fascinating design. As a result of an optimised engine management, a sports air filter and a sports exhaust system engine performance as well as acceleration both improve significantly.
Thanks to 590 hp / 434 kW and 560 Nm the eight-cylinder accelerates from zero to one hundred (km/h) in a breathtaking 3.2 seconds. The top speed is 330 km/h which is also higher than the base vehicle. As the perfect wheel-tyre combination MANSORY has built forged rims with central locking in 9 x 11 and 11 x 21 dimensions with Michelin PS2 tyres in the VA 245/35, ZR20 and HA 305/30 ZR21 sizes.
