Default Mansory Chopster based on the Porsche Cayenne

Source:Car News and reviews, videos, wallpapers, pictures, free games and more. - Top Speed

Mansory has made an attempt at being mainstream by tuning a Porsche Cayenne Turbo. However the Chopster is anything but ordinary. The roof has been lowered by 60 mm and most body panels have been replaced with carbon fiber. The turbocharged mill has been tuned to produce 710 HP and propel the vehicle to a terminal velocity of 190 MPH (302 km/h). Thank God for the 8 piston calipers up front!

Sigh......God why o why do you let this happen over & over again?

And I fee pity for the souls who try driving that thing around at 190 mph with those rubber bands around it's wheels. Even on European roads, she isn't going to survive for much long!

It looks like a PS job. Correct me if i am wrong. And that rear is probably the ugliest money can buy.

Lol, trust the Man to steer his attention to where his expertise is. i like the fact that there is nothing but value addition in most of your posts.

Edit : Maybe off topic , but i thought bout it after reading this post .......... Most F1 cars have Fat rubber . And there is still a lot of rubber left when they are changed (maybe no thread , but i mean the mass of rubber),Race tracks are not meant to be bumpy and irregular , so why do these tyres have to have such big sidewalls?

Looks good, just that maintaining the original height would have given it a meaner look . Lowering it so much gives it more of a station-wagon look.

I think it is a PS job. Look carefully just above the roof line at the bricks and you will see what i mean!

Definately a render. This is not a real car unless carbon fibre has been polished to shine like that. And in any case, the CF weave is not this wide.

Mainly it's because of F1/FIA rules which specify that tyres on F1 cars can only be of 13" dia. And partly because of the extreme aerodynamic/G loads, the tyres need the extra rubber to avoid premature failure as a lot of pressure is exerted on them by the super-high pressure & G's exerted by the aerodynamics of Formula cars.

Its different no doubt. Pretty, i dont think so.The carbon fibre body is a bit too much.Or maybe its the color combination.

This pic maybe a rendering, but the real one has appeared in Geneva.

Personally I think its only slightly OTT. Tone it down a little bit and it has great potential.
