2011 Porsche Cayenne Turbo by Mansory

Perhaps the most extravagant of the German/Swiss tuners, Mansory has just unveiled its latest bucket of carbon fibre overload. Introducing the new cosmetic and tuning package for the 2011 Porsche Cayenne Turbo.

Just look at it. It features a typically over-the-top bodykit from Mansory, pronounced by a huge open-mouth face. The Porsche Cayenne Turbo-based package almost looks like it's going fast just standing still, with its aggressively athletic new front bumper bar and sheered-off rear diffuser and truly chunky rear splitter. Take a quick glance at the back and you'd be forgiven for thinking it was some kind of sports water craft.

The excess doesn't stop at a bodykit, however. Almost every detail and piece of trimming has been replaced by a entwined piece of carbon fibre; the bonnet, side mirrors, door sills, headlight surrounds and even the tailgate scuff panel is all carbon fibre.

From the side we can see it isn't really a vehicle intended for off-road use. Not with those huge 22-inch wheels and lowered suspension. The suspension can be raised by 45mm though, through the use of a Mansory pneumatic control module.

Modifications are not limited to revising the visuals, however. The engine is also tweaked beyond oblivion. In standard form, the Porsche Cayenne Turbo's 4.8-litre twin-turbo produces 368kW of power. After Mansory has fettled with it, output is increased to a tremendous 507kW. Torque is also up from 700Nm to 800Nm.

Mansory says it will sprint from 0-100km/h in just 4.4 seconds if you tickle it in the right places (mainly the accelerator pedal). And if you keep tickling, it'll top out at a speed of 300km/h.

It might be ugly but if you're after a completely modified Cayenne Turbo but still want to keep the original platform, then Mansory is clearly more than up to the task.
