Compared to its other offerings at the 83rd Geneva Motor Show, the Mansory Sanguis, i.e. the German tuning brand’s take on the new Bentley Continental GT, is pretty restrained.
Then again, that’s probably because the Bentley coupe is a much more subtle car to start with than the Aventador or the F12berlinetta that also received the Mansory touch and will join the Sanguis at the show.
Even so, it too gets the wide body treatment (by 50 mm at the front and 60 mm at the rear), carbon fiber bonnet and front wheels, huge, 22-inch alloys and, of course, a power upgrade.
A sports exhaust, air filter and “optimized engine performance graph”, i.e. ECU remap of the 6.0-liter W12 raise the maximum output to a hefty 662HP (672PS), while torque climbs to 780 Nm (575 lb-ft) at just 1,700 rpm.
As a result, the Sanguis dispatches the 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) sprint in just 4.5 seconds and tops out at 322 km/h (200 mph), just shy of Bentley’s own GT Speed.
Last, but not least, the interior has been left mostly unchanged; that is, excluding the very finely stitched, and very red, leather that is covering nearly every surface.
