Mansory tuned McLaren MP4-12C

The bodykits might not be to everybody's taste, but Mansory's latest McLaren tuning kit - to be unveiled at Geneva - packs a serious punch

German supercar tuning firm Mansory - responsible for tuning a Veyron - has released details and images of its upcoming tuning package for the McLaren MP4-12C, which will be unveiled at the Geneva motor show.

Not content with the standard 592bhp, Mansory has managed to squeeze an extra 68bhp from the twin-turbo V8. This is achieved by installing a high-performance exhaust system, new engine-management and sports air filter. Of course, 660bhp will give the car a higher top speed, but Mansory claims it will hit an impressive 219mph - up from 205mph.

The body has been somewhat modified, with new bumpers, bonnet, roof panel, carbon-fibre rear wing and widened wheel arches. All this adds up to a car 60mm wider than the original, and is garnished with a set of gold 20-inch wheels.
