Mansory caught the eye, for better or worse, when it transformed the Ford GT into a creation called the Le Mansory. It announced plans to make three samples, and it unveiled the trio’s second member in 2021. While we don’t know who ordered it, we wouldn’t be surprised if “Bruce Wayne, aka Batman” appears on the title. .
It looks like the visual tweaks are identical to those of the first Le Mansory shown in June 2020, so they include a completely redesigned front end with recessed LED headlights and a wide variety of aerodynamic additions. Air intakes rose from the GT’s roof, while the rear wing and rear diffuser have both grown significantly. Specific wheels with Y-shaped spokes complete the look. The buyer of this car requested a rather Batmobile-esque black paint with red accents and a checkered flag-like finish for the carbon fiber.
Splitting the public’s opinion is one of Mansory’s specialties, and Le Mansory is no exception to the rule. It wears a look that most love or hate. We wonder what Moray Callum, the soon to be retired Ford designer who led the team that formed the GT, has to say about the revamped front end.
Passengers are reminded of the car’s new name as soon as they open the door, as Le Mansory (chosen in honor of the car’s success at Le Mans) appears on the Alcantara-upholstered door sills. Inside, the buyer asked for a combination of red and black trim with plenty of carbon fiber accents. It blends well with the outside.
Mansory’s mechanical updates are less controversial than the visual changes; almost everyone agrees with more power. It kept the twin-turbo, 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 and tuned it to 700 horsepower and 620 pound-feet of torque, compared to 647 and 550 for the standard model, respectively. Still bolted to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, the six-cylinder sends the Le Mansory to a top speed of 220 mph (four more than standard).
Pricing information remains unclear, but it is reasonable to assume that the client of this Le Mansory has received a seven-digit invoice. With talk of two out of three cars, what remains to be seen is how the third will be configured – it could be relatively subtle, or it could take on a bizarre design.
