Go Gold with the Mansory Rolls Royce Wraith Palm Edition 999

Go Gold with the Mansory Rolls Royce Wraith Palm Edition 999

If you own a Rolls Royce, you’re already at the uppermost-tier of automotive exclusivity and opulence. Mansory knows how to take that even further with even more extravagant materials in their limited-run of Rolls Royce Wraith ‘Palm Edition 999’ models.

Automobile of the Week 29_23 @ GenCept

A total of nine Mansory Palm Edition 999 Rolls Royce Wraiths will be produced and adorned with pure gold, epitomizing wealth and glamour in automotive form, because nothing says ‘luxury’ like precious metals.

The classic two-tone paint scheme of the Rolls Royce Wraith was changed to an elegant white and gold sequence that just oozes wealth. Adding to the rich visuals is a carbon fiber bodywork package that includes a front spoiler with integrated LED daytime running lights, front fenders, side skirts, rear apron, and rear and roof spoilers. But the most ostentatious part of the Mansory Palm Edition 999 is the fact that all the original badges and logos were replaced with 999 pure gold. Customers can even have the German company gold plate metallic-surface parts on the exterior with gold that glistens in the sunlight.

While not pure gold, the Mansory Palm Edition 999 Rolls Royce Wraith also wears gold-colored, 22-inch alloys shod in 265/35/22 Vredestein ultra-high-performance tires.

Beneath the affluent hood sits a 6.6-liter, twin-turbocharged V-12 engine that’s been upgraded to a point that matches its outrageously rich aesthetics. Mansory tuned and modified the engine of the Palm Edition 999 to produce a muscular 730 horsepower (740 PS) at 5,000 RPM and 737 lb-ft. of torque available from a low 1,500 to 5,500 RPM. This sends the gold-clad, bespoke luxury car to 62 mph from rest in 4.4 seconds and reach a top speed of 186 mph.

Step inside of the Mansory Palm Edition 999 Rolls Royce Wraith and you’ll be greeted by a completely bespoke cabin full of lavishness. Expertly crafted leather furnishings are color-coordinated with the exterior with the Palm logos embroidered on various pieces. Additionally, Mansory has also added pure gold pieces throughout the cockpit for an even greater upscale feel.

The limited run of nine gold-clad Mansory Palm Edition 999 Rolls Royce Wraith models are currently available for order from the German company.

Turning up the luxury.

There’s nothing like the class and opulence provided by a Rolls Royce. The craftsmanship and attention-to-detail is second-to-none, and it is the definition of prestigious motoring. It simply doesn’t get better and this Rolls Royce Wraith with PUR LX15 forged wheels is just another example.

It’s hard to improve on a vehicle like the Rolls Royce Wraith that just oozes luxury and class from every pore. The sleek, two-door coupe also comes packed with a 6.6-liter, twin-turbocharged V-12 engine churning out a graceful 623 horsepower at 5,600 RPM and 590 lb-ft. of torque from 1,500 to 5,500 RPM.

It’s a modern classic and these PUR LX15 forged wheels are the perfect complement to such an affluent machine. The three-piece forged wheels are made from aerospace-grade 6016-T6 aluminum alloy and feature a concave profile that exudes confidence and power.

The sleek and powerful shape of the Rolls Royce Wraith gains a touch of visual speed through the turning spokes of the PUR LX15 wheels, even when stopped. Each wheel wears a smooth Matte Black Diamond and Gloss Black Diamond finish that perfectly matches the exterior color scheme of the imposing British coupe. A massive 10.0 x 24 setup was used for the front and rear, and commands attention as it glides down the street.

This Rolls Royce Wraith is the quintessential custom-tailored luxury cruiser thanks to its British heritage and PUR LX15 forged wheels.

How zee Germans do American sports cars.
The new C7-generation Chevrolet Corvette has transformed into a bargain super car that’s highly-regarded around the globe for its performance. Even in Germany, where BMW, Mercedes-AMG, Porsche, and others rule, the Corvette is making an impact. The German tuners at BBM Motorsport are one of the latest European companies to take on the new Corvette, and their Z06 is pretty impressive. 

The supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 engine sitting beneath the hood of the Corvette Z06 is more than happy to take advantage of a few modifications. The chip tuning software specialists at BBM Motorsport installed a new software upgrade and air intake as well as a Capristo exhaust system with CES-control and optional H-pipe to replace the main catalytic converter for reduced backpressure. The result is an impressive 690 horsepower and 672 lb-ft. of torque. While that’s not the same output as other American-based tuners have achieved, it’s not doubt impressive.

Transferring that power to the asphalt are new OZ Racing Ultraleggera wheels in either 19- or 20-inch diameters. Depending on the size of the wheels, customers can re-use the factory tires.

Visually, the BBM Motorsport team relies on the addition of a new front spoiler in carbon flash metallic or a visible carbon fiber finish to generate some extra downforce. The featured vehicle is also wrapped in a fully-custom vinyl design from SL Premium. Customers can also create their own vinyl design for their American sports car as well.

All of the featured upgrades on the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 are currently available from BBM Motorsport as individual accessories or a complete package.

The Ford Mustang Geiger GT 820

The Ford Mustang Geiger GT 820

For decades, European and German sports cars have been drastically different. The Europeans tended to be the more refined canyon carvers while the red, white, and blue flew under the “no replacement for displacement”, straight-line performance banner. Today things are a bit different as American sports cars that can handle and Germans focusing on putting down the power.

The GeigerCars Ford Mustang Geiger GT 820 is just one example of what these two regions of the world can create – an American with German engineering.

The total output of the 5.0-liter American V-8 has almost doubled thanks to GeigerCars. The naturally-aspirated motor was equipped with a new 2.9-liter supercharger fed by a cold air intake system and intercooler. The Geiger Mustang GT 820 also benefits from new forged pistons, a balanced steel crankshaft, steel connecting rods, and a machined engine block to handle to horsepower increase. As an option, a full stainless steel sport exhaust with valve flaps can be fitted to unleash all sorts of hell on other’s ears.

In total, the Geiger Mustang GT 820 does just what its name says – produce 820 horsepower at 7,300 RPM and 560 lb-ft. at 6,500 RPM. That’s almost double the output of the factory motor.

The engine is only part of the program from GiegerCars for the Ford Mustang. A full in-house carbon fiber body kit creates a very imposing and powerful look. The Geiger Mustang GT 820 wears a new grille that optimizes airflow, a front spoiler lip, pair of side skirts, and a rear trunk spoiler and diffuser combo to generate downforce. As an option GeigerCars also offers a special paint finish.

Matching the more aggressive looks on the Geiger Mustang GT 820 are a new set of Y-spoke forged allow wheels wearing a contrasting black finish. The 8.5J x 20 front and 10.0J x 20 rear wheels are shod in sticky 255/35 R20 and 295/30 R20 Michelin high-performance tires for loads of grip.

The new wheel setup also benefits from the GT Performance package that includes Brembo six-piston brakes, a 3.73:1 final drive ratio, and a Torsen limited-slip differential for increased traction. A new suspension kit sharpens up handling for the American muscle car and makes it right at home on winding European roads.

he new Geiger Mustang GT 820 is currently available as a complete car for 109,450 euros while the full engine upgrade can be purchases separately for 34,600 euros from GeigerCars.

Read More

Right now, Vaugh Gittin Jr.’s 2016 Monster Energy Nitto Tire Ford Mustang RTR is ready to rock with 900 horsepower and 9,000 RPMs. On its first drive, Gittin Jr. decided to shred some rubber on the freshly-minted muscle car and get a feel for the beast.

Although it’s not a full-length hoonage film, this brutal testing video gives us a glimpse of all the fun that is in store for us in the near-future. Not only do we get to see some serious burnouts, but there’s some three-wheeled drifting going on as well.
