Motor shows aren’t just a forum for the major manufacturers to unveil brand-new cars, they also provide a space for tuning companies to rock up and stand out from the crowd with their craziest ideas and interpretations.
And over the last few years, there haven’t been many tuners with wackier ideas than Mansory. The Brand-based company doesn’t really do things by halves, and the ill-fated Geneva show this year would have been no different.
1) Audi RS6 Avant by Mansory
The first of three new cars it was hoping to display was this—a supremely angry Audi RS6.
The RS6 is Mansory’s first crack at any Audi product, but the same recipe has been applied. There are lashings of carbon fiber and plenty of sharp angles—although the black-and-orange paint job is reasonably refined. As is the interior by the looks of things. Mansory’s new logo features at the center of the steering wheel and there’s alcantara everywhere, but the RS6 is just the warmup act...
2) Bentley Continental GTC V8 by Mansory
Woah, there’s the Mansory we know and, er...love? This is its take on the Bentley Continental GTC V8. Bit loud, we must say.
Again, there is much carbon, many wings, and the obligatory black wheels. Mansory reckons this bodykit will “make the hearts of die-hard Bentley fans beat faster.” Technically, that’s probably correct. Just check out that interior. Wonderful—although a little bit more quilted leather wouldn’t go amiss.
3) Lamborghini ‘Venatus’ by Mansory
And we’ve hit peak Mansory. This is the Lamborghini Urus-based ‘Venatus.’ There’s a lot going on here, even after your eyes get to grips with the blue, lime-green, and dappled carbon-fiber color scheme. Did the Urus really need three spoilers and a massive diffuser? Probably not, but none of this is about need.
And what...how...what has actually happened here? Has someone been playing with the colors on Photoshop again?
