The Mansory Ferrari 458 Spider

The refining of super sports cars is more than just a business for Mansory. The love of detail is the driving force for extraordinary customizations. The latest stroke of genius from the firm has powerfully demonstrated this once more. The Mansory Monaco Edition, which is limited to just 3 vehicles of the Ferrari 458 Spider, doesn't just make the pulses of convertible fans beat faster. Alongside more power and a much-improved look, the team of firm owner Kourosh Mansory has especially optimized the vehicle's weight.


The ultra light and high-strength material carbon is already found in the serial version of the Ferrari Spider. Mansory has consistently used this in his Monaco Edition as a main part of all his bodywork components. Every single element of the aerodynamic design is made in perfect surface quality and precisely built into the vehicle.


An eye-catching new feature of the newly styled Ferrari front is the striking skirt with optimized air intakes for improved ventilation of the front radiator. In combination with the new bonnet, Mansory not only achieved an aggressive look, but also generated additional drive. Newly designed side sills steady the airflow between the axles and feed additional cooling air into the engine compartment through integrated routing channels. The diffuser built into the new rear skirt stabilizes the back at high speeds and also, combined with the serial rear wing on the rear axle, creates down force.


Overall, the refining specialist achieves spares the vehicle about 60 kilograms compared to a standard Ferrari 458 Spider by using carbon components specially heated in their own autoclave.


But the Mansory convertible does not impress only with its fascinating design. As a result of optimized engine management, sports air filter, and sports exhaust system, engine performance as well as acceleration both improve significantly. Thanks to 590 hp / 434 kW and 560 Nm, the eight-cylinder accelerates from zero to one hundred (km/h) in a breathtaking 3.2 seconds. The top speed is 330 km/h, which is also higher than the base vehicle.


Specially suited for the improved engine performance as well as sporty driving are the chassis components built into the Mansory two-seater. These are made up of four sports shock absorbers in a unit with progressively wound lowering springs. As a result, the vehicle's center of gravity is dropped by 20 mm in comparison to the series models.


As the perfect wheel-tire combination, Mansory has built forged rims with central locking in 9 x 11 and 11 x 21 dimensions with Michelin PS2 tires in the VA 245/35, ZR20 and HA 305/30 ZR21 sizes.


The interior has also profited from the Mansory refining. The specialists at Mansory have created an exquisite interior by combining the highest quality materials, including the exclusive leather, Alcantara suede, and carbon fiber in Monaco's colors of red and white. The leather has been expertly crafted to be soft to the touch while maintaining its durability. This natural product, with its graining and perfect hand stitching, gives an air of extravagant flair all around the newly designed middle console.


A further highlight is the newly designed full size airbag sports steering wheel as well as the aluminum pedals. Mansory has achieved the perfect symbiosis of sporty functionality and luxurious ambience.
