Mansory is a world-famous aftermarket concern that’s capable of some of the most amazing work in the automotive world, but these guys have a somewhat weird reputation. While the work they do is absolutely brilliant, the styling is often a hit or a miss. The company is known for going over the top with some of its builds, but the level of the extremes differs from car to car. Some cars are vastly improved with over-the-top work and others just look wrong. The thing is, extreme styling levels differ from person to person, extreme to one person is pretty cool to someone else. Hailing from Kempton Park means I have weird taste and that extreme makes me happy. We’ve shown you quite a few Mansory builds over the years, and I’ve defended the mad styling a few times blaming the choice of paintwork for the end result not looking as good as it could. That said, with some of the Mansory builds even I have to admit that the end product is just a little too hectic. Their Mercedes SL63 AMG is a winner, as is their take on the Maserati MC20 and also the BMW XM. The Mansory Vitesse Bentley Continental, well that one just doesn’t work, it may be better with one-colour paint though. Then there’s this latest release that’s been called the P9LM EVO 900 Cabrio and it’s complete vehicle conversion based on the Porsche 911 Turbo S Convertible. Now the 911 Turbo S is already a stunning car that ticks all the right boxes, and if we managed to get all 6 lotto numbers right, we’d have one of our own and the only change we’d make is to the wheels because that’s a baller move. Mansory clearly thinks this is an amateur move based on everything they did to the Porsche to make it a special one-off edition.

The P9LM EVO 900 Cabrio isn’t a one-of-one build, which in this case would probably have been a good thing, instead, there will be seven of these cars roaming the streets of the world. The added kit features significantly enlarged air intakes, a completely redesigned front apron, repositioned daytime running lights, an exposed carbon bonnet, over-fenders of sorts with ventilation outlets integrated into the top of the wings and carbon air intakes in the rear side panels and around the back there’s a newly developed diffuser with a large retractable rear spoiler generate for additional downforce. It’s all forged carbon by the way. The P9LM rolls on ultra-light one-piece FV.5C wheels in a split 21 and 22-inch sizing. The rear apron is partly painted and partly finished in visible carbon, and it admittedly looks good, especially with the new triple-pipe exhaust system. Those few who want one can also have the car minus the wider bodywork to retain the car’s original dimensions. In the cabin, there are loads of changes, a complete re-work of everything, but thanks to the colour chosen it looks a bit offside. There are lightweight all-carbon sports, a half carbon/half leather steering wheel with spokes painted to match the high-quality, soft glove leather. The carbon ring of the steering wheel features a shift light and a digital display for the speed and revs. There’s carbon everywhere, and the changes end off with some custom Mansory floor mats that finish things off. The changes under the rear hood see the already powerful twin-turbocharged 3.8-litre flat-6 setup send out a fair bit more power than the stock 478 kW and 800 Nm of torque - the P9LM EVO 900 Cabrio churns out 900 hp (671 kW) with an impressive 1,050 Nm of torque that sees the car hit 100 km/h in as little as 2.5 seconds and has a top speed of 340 km/h. All jokes aside, this thing is properly mad, and we’d be happy to be seen cruising along Camps Bay in this.

Take a look at the YouTube video from Thomas Tyas that shows off all the changes, and there are a lot, carried out on this car that was once a Porsche 911 Turbo S Cabriolet. The quality of work is second-to-none and even though the colours are a bit odd, it’s actually a pretty damn cool overhaul of the Porsche. We do like that there’s a healthy 900 hp on tap too.
