If there’s one place in the world you’re guaranteed to find a Mansory-tuned McLaren MP4-12C it is Abu Dhabi, the capital and richest of the seven emirates of the United Arab Emirates.
We discovered this example at a high-end dealership in Abu Dhabi named Prestige Cars, which unsurprisingly, doesn’t provide any details about the limited edition version of the MP4-12C other than that it is a 2012 model.
However, we do know that Mansory rolled out its take on the McLaren MP4-12C coupe in a world premiere at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show earlier this year.
The Swiss company’s comprehensive tune alters both the styling and performance of the British supercar starting with the twin-turbocharged V8 engine, which is upgraded with a high-performance exhaust system, a new engine-management system and a sports air filter.
As a result, output is boosted from 592hp (600PS – pre-facelift) at 7,000rpm and 600Nm (442 lb-ft) between 3,000 to 6,500 rpm, to 661hp (670PS) at 7,100rpm and 675Nm (498 lb-ft) between 3,000 and 6,500 rpm respectively. After these modifications, the car’s top speed is 353 km/h (219mph).
Mansory then transforms the MP4-12C’s body with a new styling kit that increases its width by 60mm (2.4-inches) and adds numerous parts such as a rear wing and spoilers all around, plus new 20-inch wheels in tires size 245/30ZR20 at the front and 21-inch alloys paired with 305/25ZR21 tires at the back.
The tune is rounded out with an interior package sporting leathers in the same colors as the exterior along with real carbon fiber decor and a redesigned steering wheel. By: Carscoops
