[VIDEO] Frankfurt: Mansory Siracusa based on Ferarri 458 Italia revealed

Luxury tuner Mansory was also present at the Frankfurt Motor Show but when talking about its latest creation, the Siracusa, based on the Ferrari 458 Italia, we have only one word to say: blasphemy!
Even if it may look better in many eyes than the original supercar or it may be more powerful, thanks to its ECU remap, sport air filter and sport exhaust, the Mansory Siracusa is the best example of “how not to…”.
The luxury tuner is bragging with the supercar’s performance, saying that thanks to the modifications mentioned above it’s now delivering a total output of 582 BHP and 560 Nm of torque (413 lb-ft), being able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds and stopping at its 330 km/h top speed.
Mansory also played with the suspension, fitting new sport shock absorbers and lowering springs by 20 mm, while the supercar is standing on 20 and 21 inch rims, wrapped in Michelin PS2 tires, with 245/35R20 for the front and 305/30R21 for the rear.
The tuner is using even more carbon fiber than Ferrari and says that the interior now has top materials including leather and, of course, carbon fiber, along with a new redesigned center console, decorative stitching, aluminum pedals and a sport steering wheel with a full-sized airbag.
Mansory didn’t announce a price for its Siracusa and we are not sad about that because maybe the tuner has no intention of selling it, which is a good thing.
