Oh God, not again!

Lets keep this one brief shall we? This car doesn’t deserve much coverage, Mansory is a huge joke in mine and many other purists’ eyes. They are starting to turn in to the Big Brother contestants of motoring press – we hate them but we love to talk about them.

This is the Porsche Panamera Turbo by Mansory. What were they thinking when picking a Panamera as a foundation? They were doomed for aesthetic failure. To try and make the Panamera look ‘better’ Mansory have draped acres of bare carbon fibre around the car and then skinned and shredded the Bananas in Pyjamas and made them into an interior. You don’t need a degree in design to see this a disaster – the only prerequisite is eyes.

What is more enticing is the 690 horses under the bonnet from putting bigger lungs in the Turbo which makes a flat four second 0-62 dash. But no matter how much power you lump under the vomit inducing hood, you are set to look like a grade A prat for driving one.

So here is a word of advice from us to you Mansory. LEAVE THE EXTERIORS ALONE AND JUST WORK ON THE ENGINES! Got it? Good.
