The collective goal was to make the ungainly Panamera more aggressive, while also boosting power in various stages – although not all tuners did both. Mansory, however, takes pride in their extreme creations and the C One package for the Porsche Panamera 970 certainly qualifies.
According to the German tuner, the 4.8-liter turbocharged V8 received new electronics, larger turbos and a stainless steel sports exhaust system, raising power output to 690 PS (680 HP) and pushing torque to 850 Nm (626 lb-ft). Straight line acceleration thus improved to 4 seconds dead for the 0-100 km/h (62 mph) sprint, whereas top speed is now 328 km/h (203 mph).
On the outside, the Panamera C One features a custom front fascia with LED daytime running lights, a carbon fiber bonnet, wider wheel arches, side skirts and a custom rear fascia with a massive diffuser and a fixed rear wing. This particular car, spotted in Warsaw by DannyZDR, doesn’t appear to have the carbon fiber bonnet though.
Is the C One kit something that makes the first-gen Porsche Panamera look better, or would it be better off without any styling modifications?
