Refining sports cars is more than just a business for MANSORY. The company’s latest stroke of genius impressively proves that once again. The MANSORY interpretation of the Audi R8 Spyder with its exclusive and extensive refining programme does not let just the hearts of convertible fans beat faster.

A rear spoiler also provides more contact pressure. The MANSORY technicians could restrict themselves to a small wing profile from which the car body design has significantly benefited. Since the combination with a new rear apron and the perfectly integrated rear diffuser made a sufficient grip available. The MANSORY aerodynamics kit displays its strengths on main roads with curvy sections and generates pure driving pleasure.
Extra agility and handling create room for more power. For the V10 5.2 FSI engine MANSORY brings its Know-How into play. By installing a sport air filter and a sport exhaust system, an improvement of performance results in 552 HP / 406 kW with 800 rpm and an increased torque of 550 Nm with 6500 rpm
In particular, the car body kit clearly demonstrates that the desire for visual refinement is the focus at MANSORY. Apart from a multitude of new design elements made of carbon such as the new front grill and the lamella bonnets, specific interventions on front, side and rear ensure extra aerodynamics. The front spoiler attachment therefore reduces the buoyancy of the Spyder, which decisively improves handling and agility. Furthermore, the side skirts calm the air flow between both axes.
2013 FORD SHELBY GT500
The ultimate Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 raises the bar high on performance with the introduction of the new 2013 model that goes on sale next year delivering 650 horsepower and a top speed of more than 200 mph.
The 5.8 liter V8 aluminum block engine produces 650 horsepower and 600 lb.-ft. of torque, making it the most powerful production V8 in the world. The 3,850 pound car also stays exempt from the gas-guzzler tax. Nearly every part of the powertrain has been optimized for producing the additional horsepower, including a new supercharger, new cross-drilled block and heads, updated camshaft profiles, a new carbon fiber driveshaft and upgraded clutch, transmission and axle.
A larger, more efficient supercharger flowing more air through the engine is key to helping produce the massive 650 horsepower. The new TVS series 2300 creates 2.3 liters of displacement and is a unique design to the 5.8-liter engine. The entire cooling system has been significantly updated on the new 5.8-liter engine. It now includes a larger cooling fan, fan shroud with high-speed pressure-relief doors, a more efficient charge air cooler, a higher-flow intercooler pump and an intercooler heat exchanger with volume increased 36 percent.
The new Shelby GT500’s driving dynamics have been improved, now working in concert with all the new content on the car. Handling, all AdvanceTrac settings and steering assist levels within selectable steering have been tuned to account for the updated content. The previously available unique traction control system and electronic stability control settings help drivers achieve maximum performance on both the street and the track. Both systems can be completely disabled in controlled track situations where maximum driver skill is utilized, or fully engaged for maximum safety during normal driving or in less than ideal traction conditions. Intermediate sport mode allows drivers to push their cars hard at the track without completely disabling the safety systems, permitting more aggressive driving before the traction control and electronic stability control intervene.
