When you’re having to work with an automobile that is already clearly opulent, any wrong move can turn you into a Mansory “disciple”, though fortunately this time around it’s not the case.
German tuning specialist Spofec has decided to go with the “less is more” saying and we have to agree with them – this tasteful and subtle body kit does enhance the appearance of the convertible without imposing its presence. For the aftermarket specialist the first idea was to deliver new front and back bumpers, along with new side skirts for the elegant open top for a more dynamic overall appearance. There’s also a nice discreet rear spoiler lip and 22-inch alloy wheels, while customers can also ask for the optional suspension module. The latter will have the car sitting lower by around 40 millimeters (1.5 inches) at speeds of up to 87 mph (140 km/h).
There are even more optional amenities: two stainless steel sport exhaust systems, up to 5 kilograms (11 pounds) lighter than the standard issue (not much of a difference for a hulking car). Spofec also throws in a set of carbon ceramic brakes that will cut the weight by 38 kg (84 lbs). The upgraded brakes are actually a great idea because the biturbo 6.6-liter V12 has been massaged to deliver another 115 horsepower (85 kilowatts) and 118 pound-feet (160 Newton-meters) of torque. The grand total stands in at 686 hp (505 kW) and 723 lb-ft (980 Nm), enough to shave 0,3 seconds to 4.6 seconds for the 62 mph (100 km/h) sprint time.
