If Ron Dennis were dead, he’d probably be rolling over in his grave. But he’s not, so we imagine he just had a rough sleep last night.
Why you ask? Well, it’s because the wacky tuners at Mansory have gotten a hold of his latest pride and joy, the McLaren MP4-12C.
Set to be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show next week, the Mansory version doesn’t look as gaudy as one might expect, considering some of their past projects. Still, we’ll wait to see it in person to judge.
The transformation includes an exposed carbon fiber roof, as well as wider carbon fiber front and rear sections that widen the car by roughly 2-inches. Mansory says the new spoiler and rear diffuser adds rear downforce.
Inside the fenders are some new 20-inch wheels, measuring 20×9-inches on the front with 245/30ZR20 tires and 20×11-inches in the rear with 305/25ZR21 tires.
Also noted in a release are performance enhancements with a new exhaust system, engine management system and air filter, resulting in 670 hp and 498 lb-ft of torque, up from a factory 608 hp and 443 lb-ft.
