Aftermarket tuning company Mansory is a fan of tuning high-end British automobiles. Once in a while Mansory will get its hands on a German vehicle and this time the new Porsche Cayenne Turbo S has become the tuner’s latest project.
Known as the Mansory Chopster, the modified Porsche Cayenne Turbo S features an outstanding (in our opinion) body kit featuring a carbon fiber front and rear apron, doors, bonnet, side apron and large air inlets for optimized air supply to the engine. It rides on 23-inch wheels wrapped in Dunlop Sport Maxx GT-tires.
The Mansory Chopster is powered by a modified V8 engine making 710-hp with a maximum torque of 664 lb-ft. That allows the Porsche SUV to reach a top speed of 188 mph. All the sound from the powerful V8 can be enjoyed through a 4-pipe exhaust system.
The Mansory tuned Porsche Cayenne S Turbo will make its debut at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show next week.

Mansory Chopster (Porsche Cayenne S Turbo):
Mansory, the refining specialist for super sports cars presents the world premiere of the latest generation Mansory Chopster at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show. Even more noble, more exclusive and with an interior full of innovations and unrivalled manufacturing quality.
The company owner Kourosh Mansory assigned this project to the subsidiary Mansory Switzerland AG – in-house specialist for Porsche cars. At the Mansory stand (hall 5) in Frankfurt, Mansory Switzerland AG presents its fascinating interpretation of the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S. A breathtaking car body styling, precisely adjusted aerodynamics components, a vigorous 710 hp turbo engine and a unprecedented abundance of interior refinements turn the Mansory Chopster into a holistic automobile artwork.
Carbon – the basis for modifications
Mansory relies on most modern manufacturing methods and solely uses the ultra-light and high-strength material carbon for its extensive auto body modifications. Whether front- or rear apron, doors, bonnet or the wings which broaden the cars by 80 millimetres – all components are formed out of carbon and hardened under strong pressure and high temperatures in the autoclave. The advantages of the high-tech method are evident: reducing the car weight does not only improve the acceleration values, but also reduces the braking distance and the fuel consumption of the Mansory Chopster. Large air inlets provide an optimal air supply for the drive unit. Four extra headlights increase the passive safety and underline the sportive-dynamic look.
Powerful performance enhancement for better elasticity and more driving pleasures
Apart from the auto body, also the charged serial power engine of the Porsche receives an impressive makeover. The Mansory engine department exchanges the serial turbo loader with larger specimen. An adjusted engine management and a significantly improved fresh air supply result in a remarkable increased efficiency.
The modified V8 therefore mobilises 710 hp / 522 kW and a maximum torque of 900 Nm and achieves a maximum speed of 302 km/h. A sport exhaust system with an optimised off-gas stream perfects the Mansory engine upgrade. A proprietary development consisting of a racing header and a four-pipe baffler regulates the sound scenery through the integrated valve control and the driver can select a restrained sonorous or a powerful and voluminous sound.
Wheel and running gear – Components for best road holding characteristics and dynamic appearance
The fully forged 11×23 inch mono block rims in turbine design and the Dunlop Sport Maxx GT-tyres sized 315/25/23 perfectly fit under the broadened Mansory Chopster wing. By the Mansory sport module for air suspension control, the XXL-wheels are additionally enhanced. If desired, the SUV´s centre of gravity can be lowered by 45 millimetres.
Engineer design without limits
The interior is lined with most delicate materials rendering a comfortable feeling. The leather of the Mansory Chopster interior is extremely hard wearing, but yet enormously soft and finished by expert hand. For the Mansory Chopster interior, the Mansory interior designers only use flawless leather skins and accentuate them with discreet decorative stitches.
An eye-catching highlight of the newly designed interior is the centre console which stretches from the back compartment to the dash-board. Four individual sports seats with shell-type seats made of carbon fibre render an extravagant atmosphere and provide optimal hold to its passengers.
Equipped with two monitors in the centre console as well as DVD-player and laptop with internet connection, the car offers everything the clientele desires. The newly designed airbag sports steering wheel, the aluminium pedals and the carbon fibre applications perfect the exquisite overall impression in the Chopster. Mansory achieved the perfect symbiosis of dynamic functionality and a luxurious atmosphere.
