New Mansory Vivere is for Those Who Don't Think a Bugatti Veyron is Special Enough

It’s been a few years since Mansory last offered a tune for the Bugatti Veyron with the Vincero and the very blingy LINEA Vincero d’Oro, but they’re back with a new strictly limited model named the Vivere that will be shown to the public for the very first time in Geneva this week.

There’s no mention of any hocus-pocus beneath the hood, with Mansory seemingly having concentrated all of its efforts on the restyling of the exterior and interior of the Veyron 16.4.

The black body work you see on the car is lacquered carbon fibre, with the Vivere also obtaining a new inner front grille, a shortened bonnet, larger air outlets on the profile and at the rear, a spoiler package comprising a front apron, side skirts and rear diffuser, plus different alloy wheels with a five double-spoke design and new LED headlight and tail lamp clusters.

More personalized touches can be found inside where Masnory reupholstered the entire interior of the Veyron Vivere and added splashes of carbon fibre just about everywhere, along with a new LED ambient lighting system “in the seats, door furniture and the instrument panel”, in the company’s own words.
