The work of Mansory on the latest and greatest of European high-performance machines can simply be described as controversial. The benefits of extra power cannot be denied, though.
We’ve come to know Mansory for their gnarly, sometimes outrageous redesigns of beautiful German performance machines. A liberal use of carbon fiber parts all around their vehicles, along with a host of other types of often unnecessary bling has been tuner’s DNA. With their latest Audi RS7 creation, though, it seems they’ve chosen to take a slightly less flashy approach, as in-your-face as that front bumper cover design may be on its own!
The renderings show an aggressively styled rear diffusor that retains a small amount of the Audi’s OEM character. The round dual tail pipes have been replaced with angular quad exits. The lower end of the apron visibly features forged carbon, which is the material that nearly all the exterior additions are made of. A few subtle blue accents provide a welcome contrast from the grey.
Blue On the Inside
Speaking of the blue, opening the doors will reveal a crazy amount of blue leather. The majority of the surfaces on the dashboard, as well as a decent portion of the seats, door panels, and the steering wheel are covered with the eccentric color. Signature Mansory quilted material can be found all around the cabin, too. Oh and let’s not forget about the additional carbon-fiber trim that makes its way inside.
Though the folks at Mansory may have been able to contain themselves with the styling mods, they went all out with upgrades under the hood. With modified turbochargers, the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 powering the RS7 gets a bump from the factory 592 horsepower to a whopping 769 horses of output. These gains shave a whole 0.6 seconds off the 0-60 acceleration time of the monstrous Audi, bringing it down to 3.0 seconds from the stock car’s 3.6.
