Bentley Continental GT Speed – MANSORY refines the English luxury car
For already more than 20 years, the Bavarian company Mansory is the first choice when tuning top class automobiles. Due to its creative inspiration, Mansory enhances these cars with modern features. Mainly, optical changes underline the sportive character of the car. The refining specialist also pursues this approach with its newly developed programme for the Bentley Continental GT Speed which celebrates its premiere at the Geneva Auto Salon 2009.
High-quality design sets sportive trends The exclusive Mansory aerodynamics pack sets trends in quality and design. On the one hand, the chassis components made of PU-RIM perfectly integrate into the original design, but also set significant sportive trends without being too obtrusive. The front- and rear apron form a unit with the side skirts and do not only demonstrate optical finesse. At the same time, the mounted parts optimise the air duct over the car silhouette which leads to a positive effect when handling the automobile. Moreover, the extra down-thrust is generated by the rear lip which perfectly flows into the shape of the boot lid, ensuring constant traction.
Supreme light alloy rims and optimal road-holding features In order to stay abreast of the performance enhancement, Mansory developed a forged wheel measuring 10.5 x 21 inches. By using weight-saving aluminium alloys and the subsequent reduction of unsprung masses, not only the acceleration and the braking distance, but also the handling experiences a significant progress. As for the wheels, the perfect match is the high-performance Pilot Sport PS2 in 305/30 ZR 21 which was developed in a co-operation with Michelin. Moreover, sportive trends are set with the newly developed air suspension control unit which allows lowering the race car?s centre of gravity by various stages.
Comprehensive and high-quality interior programme Mansory manages the perfect symbioses from sportive functionality and luxurious atmosphere. The interior is equipped with most precious materials rendering comfort. The masterly crafted leather is extremely resilient, but still enormously soft. With its individual graining and the perfectly applied decorative stitching, the newly designed airbag sport steering-wheel and its environment render an extravagant impression. The pedals made aluminium and applications made of real carbon perfect the exclusive Mansory programme for the Bentley Continental GT Speed.
