Mansory is a German tuner known for its outrageous transformations of expensive cars for high-end clients. They all have a certain Mansory look that either endears or repels those that see them. Such will surely be the case with its latest, a Lamborghini Urus SUV turned into a two-door coupe. The only problem is you have to take all of the other over-the-top modifications that go with it.
How did Mansory change the Lamborghini Urus SUV?
One of Lamborghini’s most successful vehicles of late is the four-door Urus SUV. But two doors are at the heart of the Lamborghini brand. So turning a four-door into a two-door coupe isn’t as far-fetched as it might sound, though it is a substantial undertaking. Kudos to Mansory for that. It christened the project Venatus Coupé EVO C. We won’t ask about A or B.
To achieve this flamboyant unicorn, Mansory had to move the B-pillars rearward eight inches. From there, longer doors were fabb’d, as well as longer quarter panels. So far, so good. But then the Mansory look comes in, and this is where it falls into a love-it-or-hate-it Twilight Zone.
Mansory added exclusive bumpers, a body kit, side skirts, and two rear spoilers because more is better. For much of this, there are conflicting vents, splitters, and sculptural elements begging the question, “Why?” Air intakes seem to be on every surface of the Coupé, for better or worse. The conversion meant the rear quarters to be wider, and the doors get a jet-like graphic. This theme repeats inside.
How much of the Lamborghini Urus interior was changed?
Once the exterior is completed, Mansory turned its focus on the cabin. The EVO C has a turquoise leather interior enhanced with additional ambient lighting. For better access to the rear seats, the fronts now fold forward. All of the seats have “Coupé” stitched into them, and the thresholds also display it.
The repeating jet graphic is evident throughout the inside, on the seat faces, doors, headliner lighting, seat back hard shells, and those leather floor mats. And curiously, the starter button now is prominently located in the headliner. A production Urus finds it mounted on the center console.
How many will be made and how much?
Where Mansory really excels is under the hood. The twin-turbo V8 now cranks out 900 hp and 811 lb-ft of torque. That beats a production Urus by plenty, which leaves the factory with 657 hp and 627 lb-ft of torque. Mansory says zero-to-62 times are 2.9 seconds, with a top speed of over 200 mph. All of that power transmits through an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Mansory will limit production of the Coupé to just eight copies. It says from ideation to completion took one and one-half years. Nothing about prices has been released, but it will go for well north of half-a-million dollars. For comparison, a base Urus starts at $230,000.
