The Swiss car tuners, MANSORY has revealed their latest upgrade package for the Range Rover Sport which includes various body and trim updates, a power increase and an upgraded suspension.

The MANSORY Range Rover Sport has 30 hp more than the standard engine thanks to an aftermarket sport exhaust system, sports air filters and an optimized ECU. This performance upgrade is the same on both the diesel and petrol engines.

The MANSORY body kit adds an extra 60 mm to the Range Rover’s width on the front axle and 80 mm on the rear, this allows the customized SUV to be fitted with a set of 23 inch light alloys. It also sits 30 mm closer to the ground thanks to a new air suspension module.

The MANSORY Range Rover Sport wide body kit includes a carbon fiber diffuser integrated in the rear apron, a carbon fiber roof spoiler, a new front spoiler with integrated LEDs, and a new bonnet with a carbon power dome.

As for the interior, this upgrade package includes a sports steering wheel and aluminum pedals, a leather upholstery and various wood or carbon trim parts.

For more information read the press release below


Mansory Press Release:

MANSORY Switzerland AG refines the Range Rover Sport.

Perfectly in time for the Range Rover's 40th birthday, MANSORY Switzerland AG is introducing a program for personalizing the off-road classic. To be precise, for its sports derivative, the Range Rover Sport. As is the case with all modifications from MANSORY Switzerland AG, both the body and the interior are subjected to a complete working-over and topped off with powerful engine tuning.

MANSORY does not distinguish between a diesel or petrol engine in the basic model; the program increases the performance for either power plant.

The specialists have placed particular emphasis on improving the sporty look of the British SUV. Aerodynamic components with a perfect fit and made from PU-RIM plastic are used to give the series Range Rover Sport a significantly more striking appearance. The new front spoiler with its vertically arranged day driving LEDs and impressive air intakes transform the Bug into a true eye-catcher. In addition, MANSORY Switzerland is also producing a new bonnet with large power dome using the carbon prepreg method. This bonnet provides the engine with additional fresh air for a perfect balance in temperature.

Wide wings and deep side skirts convey a feeling of wild engine power, even while stationary. By adding 60 mm width in the front and 80 mm at the rear, MANSORY has created sufficient space in the wheel wells to accommodate 23 inch light metal wheels with top-performance 315/25 R23 tyres. To show the rims off even more, the centre of gravity can be lowered by up to 30 millimetres with a new air suspension module.

The rear apron diffuser, which features an insert made from visible carbon fibre, and the roof spoiler, also made from carbon, emphasise the dynamic appearance of the SUV. In addition, the D-pillars of the roof can be fitted with carbon applications.

MANSORY is offering powerful performance improvements for all engine variants of the Range Rover Sport. Around 30 HP of additional engine output and extra torque of up to 40 Nm are generated in all variants of the series aggregates by mounting sports exhaust systems, sports air filters and optimised ECU.

For the interior, MANSORY has created a control centre that optimally combines functionality and convenience. The sports steering wheel and aluminium pedals – especially created for the Range Rover Sport – ensure full control over the vehicle. At the same time, the interior boasts pure luxury. Almost all interior cladding components are covered in leather and can be combined with stylish wood or carbon applications, as required. Perfectly embroidered MANSORY Switzerland logos on the seats and foot mats complete the enhanced look.

Batmobile replicas for sale

Posted: 01 Nov 2010 06:02 AM PDT

The original Batmobile from the 1960s TV series starring Adam West is still one of the most sought after TV series car. An entire generation of caped crusader fans idolize over such a vehicle and now that dream is possible, if you have around $149,999 (£95,000) to spare.

An American company called, Fiberglass Freaks are now producing officially licensed, road-legal 1966 Batmobiles. And apparently the flamethrower works!

Each car takes six months to build and features an array of working gadgets, including the famous red flashing beacon, a radar screen called ‘Detect-a-scope’, a retractable, gold-coloured ‘Batbeam’ and a dashboard DVD player.

The flamethrower in the original Batmobile was the result of the car’s turbine engine, but the replica uses a propane tank – mounted in the boot – to create the same effect.

The astonishing car is the brainchild of Fiberglass Freaks founder Mark Racop. “I fell in love the show, fell in love with the action, the color, the music – everything. But the best feature was the Batmobile, speeding out of the Batcave,” he said.

The Lincoln Futura on which the Batmobile is based was never actually put into production, but after finding a body shell on eBay in 2004, Racop had the basis of his replica.

The chassis and running gear come from a Lincoln Town Car, onto which a fibreglass body is placed. The licence from D.C. Comics limits the company to making just eight per year, which renders it one of the world’s most exclusive production cars.

Racop says that buyers are generally in their forties and fifties and fans of the original show – some drive their cars every day. “Wealth seems to breed that eccentricity. This was their childhood dream car, just as it was for me,” he commented.

Ferrari World opens to the public

Posted: 01 Nov 2010 05:52 AM PDT

The first ever Ferrari theme park has finally opened its doors to the public. The park is situated in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates and offers visitors the chance to experience the thrills and excitement of speed which you would get in a Formula one car.

One of the many amusements is the Formula Rossa roller coaster that launches its passengers up to a top speed of 150-mph, which equals 1.7 Gs of acceleration force.

The exterior of the park is modeled after the side profile of a Ferrari GT, and the roof has a total surface area of 200,000 square meters (2,200,000 sq ft) with a perimeter of 2,200 meters (7,200 ft). One hundred and sixty feet below the roof, which displays the largest Prancing Horse logo ever created, sits 86,000 square meters (930,000 sq ft) of floor space that makes Ferrari World the largest indoor theme park on the planet.

Other attractions include a plethora of movies (some in 3D), and a ride that takes you through the inner workings of a V12 engine. You can also drive a Ferrari 250 California Spyder though an exhibit that shows you the best that Italy has to offer while you let the kiddies have their kicks learning how to drive Junior Grand Prix race cars.

There are also numerous shops to buy Ferrari memorabilia and the price to enter this fun park is just 225 AED which is a little over $60 U.S.

If anybody has visited the park yet, tell us about your experiences in the comments below and for those who cant make it watch the following video to see what all the fuss is about.
