Frankfurt Preview: Mansory Vitesse Rosé is a Bentley for Barbie

Frankfurt Preview: Mansory Vitesse Rosé is a Bentley for Barbie

German luxury tuner Mansory is full of surprises. Just when you think the creative minds at Mansory might have reached the limits of excess by fitting a Murciélago exhaust to a Ferrari 599, painting an SLR in Matte gold or completely modifying a Bugatti Veyron, they do this. Called the Vitesse Rosé, this baby pink Bentley is a perfect Barbie-mobile.

While the pink paint is the most obvious, this Bentley Continental GT Speed also gets a complete Mansory aero kit including a new front bumper with wider openings, side skirts and a new rear bumper with a diffuser. There is also an exposed carbon fiber hood to drop a few pounds on the hefty Bentley, with a carbon rear lip out back.

Additional exterior details include the set of 21-inch wheels, but the real surprise is inside, where a pink and purple diamond stitched leather and Alcantara cockpit assaults the eyes.

Mansory will debut this Vitesse Rosé for the first time at the Frankfurt Auto Show next week. The car will be available in a limited edition for a price of 269,000 euros ($383,000).

Official release after the jump:

PRESS RELEASE  September 2009 World-premiere at the 63rd Frankfurt Motor Show  Vitesse Rosé – a Mansory special edition of the Bentley Continental GT Speed limited to only three cars Vitesse Rosé – the name says it all. On the one hand, Vitesse means velocity in French and therefore already the basic model of the Bentley Continental GT Speed is an epitome for swiftness. On the other hand, Rosé is the dominating colour of the luxury coupé which is only offered in a limited edition of three cars.  For already more than 20 years, the company MANSORY which is located in the village Brand in Bavaria stands for high-class tuning and is the top address when it comes to extravagant refinement of British luxury automobiles. The main focus are mainly visual modifications which enhance the dynamic character of the cars. The company owner, Kourosh Mansory already follows this trail with the newly designed Vitesse Rosé which now celebrates its world premiere at the Frankfurt Motor Show.   Extravagant eye-catcher in unsurpassable quality The exclusive MANSORY aerodynamics package sets benchmarks in quality and appearance. On the one hand, the car body components made of PU-RIM perfectly integrate into the original design, but also render a significant dynamic style. Front- and rear apron in connection with the side skirts form a unit and do not only present a visual and colour-coordinated refinement. LED daylight running lights which are integrated in the front apron render additional passive safety and in combination with the carbon fibre bonnet they enhance the dynamic look of the two-door car. In addition, the component parts optimise the air duct over the car silhouette which renders positive effects on the handling. The necessary extra downforce can be attributed to the carbon rear lip which perfectly flows into the shape of the boot lid and prevents any troubles with the traction   Top-class twelve-cylinder sound  The newly developed stainless steel exhaust system with two angular, overlapping chrome end pipes render a striking note to the tail and supply the twelve-cylinder with an earthy rumbling sound.   High-tech rims for best road holding  In order to draw level with the extra performance, MANSORY developed a light alloy wheel measuring 10.5 x 21 inches. By using weight-saving aluminium alloys and the therefore resulting reduction of the unsprung masses, not only the braking distance, but also the handling is significantly improved. In co-operation with Dunlop, high-performance wheels type Dunlop Sport Maxx GT measuring 285/30 ZR 21 were developed. Moreover, the newly designed control unit for air suspension which allows lowering the sports car´s centre of gravity in different levels, renders additional dynamic high-lights.   Premium and extensive interior programme  MANSORY achieves the perfect symbiosis between dynamic functionality and luxurious ambience. Premium materials are chosen for the interior and enhance the comfort. The leather is processed by expert hand and is extremely resilient and still extraordinarily soft. With its individual grain and the manually applied decorative stitching, everything around the newly designed airbag sports steering wheel renders an extravagant atmosphere. The pedals are made of aluminium and in combination with the carbon fibre applications the exclusive interior of the Vitesse Rosé comes to perfection. The price for the limited Vitesse Rosé starts at 269,000 euros. For more information about the exclusive MANSORY refining programme for the Bentley Continental GT Speed, please visit the web site www.mansory.com  The MANSORY Cooperation GmbH solely offers its own modification accessory. MANSORY does not deal with entire cars and also does not offer them for sale.
