Ferraris and tuners never really mix up and this example right here stays true to the tradition.
This is Mansory’s proposal for the Ferrari 488 called the 4XX Siracusa, offering a ‘unique’ carbon bodywork and 790hp from the twin-turbo V8 powerplant.
As you can see, the new bodywork now features bigger air intakes and all sorts of wings and winglets which are supposedly improving the downforce levels and increase the fresh-air flow to the engine. Oh, and they are made out of carbon, making them lighter than the factory components too.
Mansory has also installed a set of lightweight alloy wheels, measuring 20in at the front and 21in at the rear with 255/30 and 325/25 high-performance tires respectively. A set of lowering springs drops the car’s center of gravity by 20mm.
The strange thing though is that Mansory claims to have tuned the twin-turbo 3.9-litre V8 engine into making 778hp and 561lb ft (870Nm) of torque by just ‘optimizing the engine’s management and the use a specially designed exhaust system’.
In addition, the claimed performance figures are not that much better than the standard 488; 0-62mph comes in 2.9 seconds and the top speed is now 341km/h (211mph), when the standard car needs 3 seconds flat and tops out at 330km/h (205mph).
The new Mansory 4XX Siracusa is set for a public debut at the Geneva Motor Show.
