Home / Social media / News / Mansory's take on the imposing BMW XM is amazing with exposed forged carbon highlighting the awesomeness.


We’re fans of Mansory. Sure, they are known for going over the top with some of their builds, but the level of that top is dependent on your definition of where the top is. Me, I hail from Kempton Park, and on the East Rand there ain’t no such thing as over the top. I loved the Max Power age of body kits and big wings and louvres and vents and sound installs and scissor doors. Mansory is a lot like that, except for people with a much bigger bank account. The German aftermarket specialists have created kits for most of the coolest and most popular modern cars and because they target the range-toppers, the components and kits they create are made from the best materials money can buy. Carbon fibre was always the order of the day, but with Lamborghini adding forged carbon to their build materials, and Toyota adding it to the roof of their Yaris GR, more and more people wanted it. Mansory quickly figured out how to make it work and started creating components and body kits for some special cars. One of the coolest they created was the absolutely stunning Mansory First Edition which was based on the Mansory MC20. The already great-looking supercar was given a full forged carbon kit that managed to make the car look even better. Since then, the aftermarket company has used forged carbon to enhance loads of different cars, some cool, some just OK. This latest offering from Mansory used forged carbon just right, and the effects on the new BMW XM are downright brilliant. 

The BMW XM is one of the most powerful BMWs available right now, surpassed only by the XM Red Label, which is so good-looking most wouldn’t mess with the looks. That said, this Mansory aerodynamics program should be fitted to all XM models, in our expert opinion. The XM is a plug-in hybrid and is also the first electrified M High-Performance car. It makes use of an M TwinPower turbocharged V8 coupled with an electric motor that offers up a powerful 480 kW of power with a massive torque figure of 800 Nm and it can hit 100 km/h in 4.3 seconds. The Red Label goes one better with 550 Kw and 1,000 Nm of torque with a 3.8 second 0-100. The entry-level XM 50e is still pretty decent with 350 kW and 700 Nm of torque while using a turbocharged inline 6 as the ICE base. The Mansory options for this body are plentiful and include a new style bonnet, lower side cladding on the doors, wheel arches, canards, front and rear bumpers, and a wing for the top of the hatch - all in exposed forged carbon. It just works and will suit just about any shade of factory paint too. As is the norm for Mansory, there are also a few different wheel options available to complete the overall look. While the XM has the most modern and feature-packed interior of any BMW to date, Mansory still offers options to tailor the interior to a client’s needs. We haven’t been shown this yet, but we’re sure there will be plenty of changes that include exposed forged carbon, like dash trims, door trims and seat backs, among other things.

Take a look at the YouTube video that details the changes that Mansory has created from forged carbon to completely transform the looks of the most powerful M car to date, the massive XM hybrid SUV.
