Mansory Releases Surprisingly Tame BMW X5 M Tuning Program

Mansory Releases Surprisingly Tame BMW X5 M Tuning Program

This is most certainly a surprise from Mansory. After making huge splashes with their customized Aston Martin DB9, Bugatti and Maserati Gran Turismo, the last thing we expected to see from the wild German exotic car tuner was a BMW X5 M. Even more shocking is that it’s not a 9-inch widebody with 24-inch gold wheels, matte-orange paint and more carbon fiber than an Airbus A350.

Instead it’s quite tame, perhaps an acknowledgment that folks will actually use their X5 M as a daily driver.

Possibly even more remarkable is how toned-down the interior is. We’ve spotted an Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel and a refreshed two-tone interior. But of course, Mansory would be more than happy to indulge any owner with any sort of interior modifications they want, no matter how gaudy or tasteless they are.

The X5 M wouldn’t be considered customized if it didn’t include a heavy horsepower gain. Mansory does that too, offering several levels of performance with the top gains sitting at a hefty 670-hp and 700 ft-lbs of torque. That’s quite the increase from the factory 555-hp and 500 ft-lbs of torque.

In the press release, Mansory notes that they are working on a big brake upgrade though it didn’t find its way on the demo car. The SUV is lowered 1.6-inches and sports massive 23-inch wheels all around with Michelin tires.

Interestingly enough, Mansory stated that this is just one of a few BMW endeavors with the X6 and 7-Series on their radar. We’re guessing they’ve realized more people own BMWs than Bugattis. We’re more curious to see if these tuning packages’ price range is more in line with BMW owner’s budget than Bugatti and Rolls-Royce owners’ budget.

PRESS RELEASE

MANSORY Switzerland AG enhances its product portfolio with a product line for BMW Automobile.

For the very first time MANSORY Switzerland AG presents an individualized program for current BMW models. The X5 will be the first model of the white-blue brand to be treated to an extensive refinement process. “The X5 is just the beginning,” announced Managing Director Michael Stein. “In response to the many requests of our importers and customers, we will very shortly be developing an exclusive program for the bodywork, performance and interior of other selected BMW models. Other fascinating refinements for the BMW X6 as well as for the BMW 7 series are soon to follow.”

In the development stages, MANSORY Switzerland AG attaches great importance to both individual design as well as to precisely tailored workmanship. The program for the SUV X5 has already skilfully set these standards. Stylish coordinated components make the broadly-built frame a real eye-catcher. An integral part of the imposing front structure is a very sporty front spoiler with big cooling air inlets. An extra light engine bonnet made entirely from carbon optimises the supply of fresh air to the front motor with ventilating channels. MANSORY individualization achieves a unique appearance with much broader fenders, which create an entity with the newly fitted side skirts. With an additional vehicle width of 70 millimetres at the front and 80 millimetres at the back, the MANSORY X5 conveys the message of pure power, even when stationary.

The back-spoilers have also been newly designed with an integrated diffuser, making space for the four stainless-steel tailpipes of the sport exhaust system. These fit the vehicle’s new image of masculinity perfectly. Further features made from exposed carbon give the refining process the finishing touches. This includes amongst others the roof spoiler, which provides additional downforce and improves the stability of the vehicle at high speeds. The new aerodynamic components are largely manufactured by the engineers out of MANSORY characteristic prepeg-autoclave carbon. This enables an almost perfect surface quality with minimal weight.

The striking appearance of the MANSORY-SUV is assisted by a wide range of performance kits for the standard engines. The highlight is a vigorous upgrade for the BMW X5 M aggregate. Approximately 670 hp /493kW and a torque of 950 Nm at a rate of 5900 Umin (series: 555 hp / 408 kW and 680 Nm at a rate of 1500 – 5650 Umin) results from the use of a completely new exhaust system along with headers as well as optimised engine electrics. Thanks to these changes, the 4×4 accelerates in only 4.2 seconds to a speed of 100 km/h and achieves a maximum speed of 300 km/h.

MANSORY provides an alloy rim especially made to meet the requirements of the BMW-SUV, which is significantly better for handling and additionally sharpens the vehicle’s optics. The silver monoblock cast wheels with the description M10 are fitted with tyres of the dimension 315/25R23, which guarantee proper grip. In connection with lowering the vehicle’s centre of gravity by 40mm with sport springs on the front axle as well by 40 mm on the back axle with adjusted vehicle height, the masculine appearance of the MANSORY X5 is glamorously rounded off. In addition, the sports suspension improves handling. A sports break system with larger discs and multi-piston brake callipers is already being tested.

An interior highlight is the newly designed sports steering wheel, which ergonomically leaves no question unanswered. Whether stylish or sporty, MANSORY Switzerland offers the required solution for every taste of interior design. All special fittings are individually manufactured to meet your needs and are integrated into your vehicle by professionals. The private upholstery services can produce everything that your heart desires with high precision craftsmanship, with everything from personalized floor mats to a complete leather interior.
