The Ferrari F8 Spider is a pretty striking convertible supercar in standard form. But, if you’d like to spend a whole heap of money making it look like you’ve crashed through a rich person’s autoparts store, Mansory has the answer.
Whatever the question is or was, it seems Mansory’s answer is carbon fibre. The F8XX gets a new front end; there’s a new bumper with lashings of forged carbon, including new strakes and fins. Down the side, there’s a jutting skirt – avoid parking anywhere with kerbs – and the rear end is overhauled with new winglets, diffusers and a new decklid. We’ll leave it to you to work out what all Mansory’s parts are made of.
The more you look, the more carbon you see. Even the door handles can be clad in carbon, and any one of the Ferrari’s vents can be surrounded by the stuff. The car you see here even comes with carbon-fibre wheel covers, but luckily there are versions without the bulky carbon bits.
This car’s Catania Green and yellow paint scheme looks pretty good to our eyes, if a bit reminiscent of a John Deere tractor, but you can customise the looks to your heart’s content. That’s good news if you find the interior of this car a bit much.
Almost every surface has been reupholstered in vivid green leather, including the footwells and most of the dashboard. That’s offset by yellow accents on the air vents, door handles and seat piping.
The engine bay is a festival of carbon-fibre too, and there’s a little more performance to get away from everyone asking why you’ve got so much carbon. With a remapped ECU, the twin-turbo V8 now delivers a whopping 868bhp and 722lb ft, up from a not-insignificant 710bhp and 567lb ft.
