No exquisite car can ever escape Mansory's wrath. We've seen countless brash projects from this controversial tuner over the years, and since they're on a wave, we reckon we'll see numerous more in the future. Sadly, most of them will be beyond flashy, regardless of the make and model.
This company has left its mark on more vehicles than we can count ever since it was founded back in 1989 (that's a lot of years to be maiming cars). If you look on their website, you will see that brands such as Ferrari, Lamborghini, McLaren, Porsche, Aston Martin, Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Land Rover, Mercedes, BMW, Audi, Maserati, and even Bugatti have met Mansory's wrath. These are not the only ones, as Mansory has also signed some projects from other car, scooter, and jetski manufacturers.

Most of the time, Mansory's builds step beyond the OTT line. They feature ugly body kits and way-too-lively interiors, and this is a great way to ruin all cars, even the mighty Bugatti Chiron, which felt the tuner's wrath first-hand on a few occasions. Nevertheless, not all their projects are kitschy. In fact, a select few have managed to become a bit more appealing compared to their stock siblings, and that's mostly due to the color choice, as most vehicles look great with a murdered-out presence.

Unfortunately, one of their latest machines does not have a dark spirit. If you haven't figured it out which car we're talking about, it is the Maserati MC20 pictured in the gallery. Well, make that the Mansory MCX Pergusa, as per the caption in the social media post. So, what is Pergusa? Why, an Italian village in Sicily. Guess Ferrari could learn a thing or two from Mansory when it comes to naming its creations (ahem, 12Cilindri).

One does not need to be addicted to the Trident brand to spot the novelties on this Maserati MC20. These are pretty much in your face, from the new front hood and all kinds of add-ons in the bumper to the side attachments, humongous rear wing, and a diffuser that seems to have come from the next Alien vs. Predator movie. As if this wasn't enough, Mansory also gave it a roof scoop and left its signature on a whole bunch of other elements.

Don't go anywhere yet, as we still haven't told you about the quad exhaust tips, the missing Maserati logos and the usual trident badge that were replaced with Mansory's emblems, the motorsport-inspired extra brake light, or the V-spoke wheels with center locking. Mansory bathed the entire Italian supercar in forged carbon, a thing that has become way too common at the tuner these past few years. It also sports a few orange accents for contrast and to tie the controversial exterior to the re-upholstered cockpit.

That's right, you didn't think this Maserati MC20 was going to retain its stock upholstery, did you? After all, it's a one-of-five product, as per the logo applied to the steering wheel, which combines carbon fiber and orange leather. More carbon fiber can be seen on the dashboard, air vents, center console, and other parts of the interior. The seatbelts and headrests also wear Mansory's logo. Several parts of the interior feature quilted leather mixed with black leather, and the headliner and pillars sport black Alcantara.

The interior of this MC20 is not the worst we have seen when it comes to a Mansory product, but it's far from being the best. If anything, the whole cockpit would have looked better if it featured a bit less carbon fiber and more traditional colors. Our ideal MC20 (okay, mine) would have white leather upholstery, a black exterior, and no Mansory (or any other tuner's) touch at all. Guess I’m not their typical client, but then again, I never will be, as everything this company touches tends to cost a small or big fortune, depending on the model.

Before calling it a story and moving on to the next piece, let's speak about the power, too, because Mansory states that this Maserati packs much more oomph than stock. The output is now rated at 739 hp (750 ps/552 kW) and pound-foot (880 Nm) of torque. That's 118 hp (120 ps/88 kW) and 133 lb-ft (180 Nm) of torque more than the stock power produced by the 3.0L twin-turbo V6 engine. It is also a 30 hp (30 ps/22 kW) and 22 lb-ft (30 Nm) boost over their previous takes on the MC20.

Mansory says that due to the extra punch, the model can hit sixty-two mph (100 kph) in 2.6 seconds, some four-tenths quicker than the stock one and one-tenth faster than their previous MC20 builds. As for the top speed, you're looking at 208 mph (335 kph), 9 mph (15 kph) more than the regular MC20. So, what do you have to say about the Mansory MCX Pergusa?
