Il tuner tedesco ha potenziato il motore, alleggerito la carrozzeria e installato nuovi fari

Il nome completo è Mansory Ford GT Le Mansory, dunque la si può interpretare come “La” preparazione per eccellenza che questo tuner tedesco dedica alla sportiva con l’ovale blu sul cofano. Per un progetto realizzato solo in 3 esemplari.

Meno vistosa del solito

Il look che non passa certo inosservato è un marchio di fabbrica delle auto preparate da Mansory (come la Urus e la Rolls di questo video), e anche questa Ford GT non fa eccezione. Anche se, in realtà, è sparito qualche spigolo dalle linee della versione originale, le forme sono più raccordate e quindi non si tratta di una delle creazioni più estreme nella storia di questo tuner.

55 CV e 6 km/h in più

Ma sotto alla carrozzeria allargata di 5 centimetri, rimodellata utilizzando pannelli in fibra di carbonio, si è lavorato anche sull’elaborazione della meccanica.

Attraverso una nuova gestione elettronica del controllo motore, il 3.5 V6 turbo passa dai 655 CV originali a 710 CV, con la coppia massima che sale da 746 Nm a 840 Nm. Secondo Mansory, il surplus di potenza e la nuova aerodinamica permettono alla Ford GT di arrivare a 354 km/h di velocità massima, contro i 348 km/h della versione di serie.

Nuova pelle e coda a triangolo

Il colore scelto per la verniciatura esterna è una tinta creata appositamente per questo progetto, chiamata Bleurion Race. E per dare risalto alla finitura superficiale, è stata pensata una texture specifica per la fibra di carbonio nella parte frontale dell’auto.

Sui passaruota allargati, sulle appendici aerodinamiche e sull’imponente ala posteriore, inoltre, c’è una trama ispirata a una bandiera a scacchi. Mentre il doppio scarico originale ha lasciato posto a un triplo terminale, con una disposizione a triangolo.

I fari di nuovo disegno sono a LED, con lampade montate affiancate anziché sovrapposte come sulla GT originale. I cerchi forgiati sono da 21 pollici, con canale da 9 per l’avantreno e da 12 per il retrotreno, gommati con Continental Sport Contact 6.

Le MANSORY - PRESSE RELEASE


"Le MANSORY"

MANSORY presents the complete conversion "Le MANSORY" based on the Ford GT - the cult super sports car from America, which became a legend through the film "Le Mans

Under the motto "One car per decade", "Le MANSORY", which is limited to only 3 copies worldwide, forms another special edition on the occasion of MANSORY's 30th anniversary in 2020.

• Complete vehicle conversion
• Full carbon fibre body
• Special color "Bleurion Race"
• Newly developed LED front headlights
• Power increase to 710 PS and 840 Nm 
• Limited to 3 conversions worldwide 

It was undisputedly one of the cinema highlights in 2019: the film "Le Mans 66”. Main actor: The Ford GT40 and the legendary race in Le Mans 1966.

While Le Mans is already a place with a special racing history - and has already been ennobled by Steve McQueen with his film adaptation of "Le Mans" – the film “LE Mans 66” has once again focused on one of the most powerful and spectacular vehicles in automotive history.

The subsequent events in Le Mans need not be recounted for long - they and the Ford GT40, which was developed and built for this sole purpose at the time, have been both motorsport history and cult since their furious triple victory in Le Mans in 1966. Everyone knows the story. Everyone knows the Ford GT40.

So what could have been more obvious to refine the new edition of this legendary vehicle - which should not be missing in any renowned collector's garage worldwide - under the new abbreviation "Ford GT" by MANSORY and thus make it even more desirable? The result:

The Ford GT "Le MANSORY".

In Geneva 2020 MANSORY will present the "Le MANSORY" for the first time in a worldwide limited edition of 6 conversions in total, thus adding another exciting chapter to the rich history of the Ford GT.

The "Le MANSORY" shows unmistakably and impressively why the worldwide reputation of the complete vehicle conversions from MANSORY have become that which has distinguished the MANSORY brand for 30 years now.

The "Le MANSORY" convinces and impresses the observer at first sight thanks to its 5 cm wider full carbon body including its extensive changes in the aerodynamic area and makes the heart of every motorsport enthusiast beat faster.

In addition to the impressive first impression, the standard output of the V6 twin-turbo engine of 483 KW (656 hp) has been increased to a demanding and appropriate 710 hp by extensive modifications to the engine management system, enabling the "Le MANSORY" in combination with adapted aerodynamics to achieve a top speed of 354 km/h (standard: 347 km/h) almost effortlessly.

Chassis modifications and the use of forged rims of the dimensions 9x21" (front) and 12x21" (rear) type "YN.5" with corresponding high-performance tyres “Continental Sport Contact 6” round off the appearance in an elegant and harmonious way and also playfully master the massively increased performance.

However, the LED main headlights, which have been completely newly and exclusively developed for the "Le MANSORY", are of particular interest. This lighting system, which is divided into four individual headlights, gives the "Le MANSORY" a completely independent look, which on the one hand clearly distinguishes it from the standard, rather round Ford GT, but on the other hand also gives it the best possible citation and, thanks to newly drawn contours and enlarged air inlets, gives it the optical brilliance that makes the "Le MANSORY" so unmistakable.

In the interior, which Ford has kept rather spartan as standard, almost not one single component was left untouched by the MANSORY specialists - as is usual with all MANSORY complete conversions. While the car is dominated exclusively by the colour blue named "Bleurion Race" and the visible carbon fibre in dark grey, the interior of the dashboard and the sports seats are also lined in white-blue Alcantara. The numerous carbon applications distributed throughout the entire passenger cell complement and compose the interior into a harmonious whole.

The "Le MANSORY" is limited to 3 units worldwide.
