you have and unhealthy obsession with all things carbon fiber
and a bank balance of obscene proportions, then the Mansory
Cyrus should be top of your shopping list. And with only 15
scheduled for production, chances are the neighbors won't
Mansory, a tuner based Brand, Germany basically take an unsuspecting
Aston Martin DB9 - or a DBS if you prefer, and attach a comprehensive
carbon fiber bodykit which either replaces or covers all the
original bodywork. The "prepreg autoclav carbon"
is left unpainted to show of the weave pattern of the carbon
fiber. Up front the Cyrus gets a front bumper which emulates
the design of the Aston Martin One-77 supercar. An enlarged
grille and additional vents in the hood provide better airflow
around the engine. Down the sides Mansory have developed their
own sideskirts to compliment the wider wheel arches. At the
rear they've fitted the Cyrus with a massive rear diffuser
mounted neatly into the body. In the center of the diffuser
is an enormous rectangular exhaust.
While all design relies on personal taste for success or failure,
the styling of the Cyrus takes this to the next level. It's
one of those vehicles which seems to evoke a love it or hate
it response in people. However one element of the design which
is unanimously ridiculed is the nonfunctional roof-scoop which
looks like something out of a cheap auto parts catalog.
The 10 spoke lightweight forged wheels consist of 9x20 inch
units up front and 10,5x21 inch rims at the rear. These are
used in combination with Dunlop Sport Maxx tires measuring
255/30ZR20 at the front and 295/25ZR21 at the back.
The interior has also been modified with extensive use of
carbon fiber - but in a far less tasteful manner. The center
console, door handles, air vents, mirror housing, ash tray
cover and sill plates are all made of the stuff. Adding to
the tackiness are a pair of sports seats with an illuminated
''Mansory" logo set into the headrest. Mansory also offer
the option of individual painting of "small parts"
which basically means they'll ruin your interior in any color
