Ferrari 812 GTS “Stallone” Is Mansory’s Way of Testing Haters’ Nerves

It seems the German tuner convinced Maranello’s convertible to dress up for Halloween.

When it comes down to creating otherworldly pieces of four-wheeled machinery that’ll have you question just how far a tuner’s madness can possibly go, Mansory certainly takes the cake. With the exception of their Ferrari 812 Superfast-based undertaking, it’s difficult to recall a single time when this manufacturer’s surreal exploits haven’t stirred a great deal of controversy in the automotive realm.

Quite frankly, it appears Brand’s aftermarket doctors don’t exactly give a damn about the criticism that’s constantly being thrown at them. At the end of the day, if taking things to the extreme is your specialty, polarizing opinions from the public are an absolute must. I mean, we can all agree that creatures such as “Gronos” or “Le Mansory” certainly aren’t for everyone, right?

Although the company’s aftermarket package for Maranello’s beloved Superfast did a great job at proving this firm is actually capable of subtlety, the same can’t be said about “Stallone” - an 812 GTS that looks as if it belongs in a different galaxy. Before we proceed with a closer analysis of this fiend, we’ll be reminding ourselves of the stock ride’s main specs and features.

Within its engine bay, The Prancing Horse’s convertible packs a naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V12 powerplant. At approximately 8,500 rpm, this untamed monstrosity will be more than happy to summon as much as 789 hp. On the other hand, the engine is fully capable of producing up to 530 pound-feet (718 Nm) of twist at 7,000 revs.

A seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox hands the mill’s force over to a rear-wheel drive system, enabling the Italian beauty to accelerate 0-62 mph (0-100 kph) in just three seconds. Additionally, top speed is generously rated at no less than 211 mph (340 kph). Now that we’ve covered the standard vehicle’s powertrain characteristics, let’s see what Mansory’s mutant stallion has to bring to the table.

The very first thing you’ll spot is a carbon fiber body kit that’s as outlandish as it is comprehensive. While precise details on the individual components contained by this aerodynamic package remain scarce, we notice the front fascia being adorned with an ominous splitter. At the rear, the crew went about installing a carbon diffuser and one beefy spoiler that sits atop the deck lid.

On the flanks, Stallone wears new mirror housings, as well as a pair of custom side skirts in between the wheels. Oh, and speaking of footwear; the GTS 812 crawls on YN.5 forged wheels from Mansory’s own inventory, measuring 9.5 x 21 inches at the front and 12 x 22 inches at the rear axle. Their rims are hugged by high-performance 265/30 ZR21 tires up front and 335/25 ZR22 rubber on the opposite end.

As you step inside the cabin, you will find what the enterprise refers to as “a sport-oriented atmosphere that perfectly combines functionality and comfort.” Personally, I’m not necessarily a huge fan of the blue leather upholstery covering just about everything from the door panels and dashboard, to the fresh steering wheel and seats.

However, I’ll thank the heavens for the white accents and carbon fiber trimmings that level things out a little. To wrap it all up, a set of aluminum pedals and illuminated door sills have also been added. Right, let’s take a quick look at the mechanical side of this ordeal, shall we?

The team fiddled with the beast’s 6.5-liter V12 colossus to unleash some truly outrageous performance figures. To be more concise, the leviathan will supply a whopping 820 hp and 546 pound-feet (740 Nm) of unforgiving torque at optimal revs. This state of affairs bumps the 812’s top speed to 214 mph (345 kph), which might seem modest, but it’ll definitely be more than enough.

Mansory hasn’t revealed any details on Stallone’s pricing and availability for the time being. Nonetheless, if your wallet can handle $340,000 for the original 812 GTS, I’ll bet this aspect shouldn’t be a problem!
