The Le Mansory is a new complete styling conversion for the Ford GT from the company that's famous (or perhaps infamous) for its wild-looking body kits. The business intends to build just three of these re-bodied GTs, so the chances are very low of seeing one in the real world.
This is more than just a new body kit for the Ford GT. Mansory revises the engine management system to push the output to 700 bhp (522 kilowatts) and 620 pound-feet (840 Newton-metres. In comparison, the stock output is 647 bhp (483 kW) and 550 lb-ft (746 Nm). The company says the extra power and revised aerodynamics increase the top speed to 220 miles per hour (354 kph), rather than the stock 216 mph (348 kph).
All of the overhauled body panels are carbon fibre, and the wider wings/fenders make the exterior 1.97 inches (5 centimetres) broader than stock. The restyling has lots of sharp edges but still maintains the generic aesthetic of the modern Ford GT. Maybe we look at too many of Mansory's creations, but this design doesn't seem too over the top for the company.

The supercar wears a bespoke colour called Bleurion Race. For an extra visual flourish, Mansory uses a textured effect for the carbon that runs along the front. There's also a chequered-flag-pattern in the material for areas like the fender extensions, trim, and the massive wing. Instead of the stock pair of exhausts, this one has three of them in a triangle arrangement.
The package also includes new LED headlights. Rather than the stacked styling on the stand Ford GT, Mansory places the lamps next to each other.
The Le Mansory rides on forged wheels that measure 9x21 at the front and 12x21 at the back. Continental Sport Contact 6 wrap around them.

It was undisputedly one of the cinema highlights in 2019: the film "Le Mans 66”. Main actor: The Ford GT40 and the legendary race in Le Mans 1966.
While Le Mans is already a place with a special racing history - and has already been ennobled by Steve McQueen with his film adaptation of "Le Mans" – the film “LE Mans 66” has once again focused on one of the most powerful and spectacular vehicles in automotive history.
The subsequent events in Le Mans need not be recounted for long - they and the Ford GT40, which was developed and built for this sole purpose at the time, have been both motorsport history and cult since their furious triple victory in Le Mans in 1966. Everyone knows the story. Everyone knows the Ford GT40.
So what could have been more obvious to refine the new edition of this legendary vehicle - which should not be missing in any renowned collector's garage worldwide - under the new abbreviation "Ford GT" by MANSORY and thus make it even more desirable? The result:
The Ford GT "Le MANSORY".
In Geneva 2020 MANSORY will present the "Le MANSORY" for the first time in a worldwide limited edition of 6 conversions in total, thus adding another exciting chapter to the rich history of the Ford GT.
The "Le MANSORY" shows unmistakably and impressively why the worldwide reputation of the complete vehicle conversions from MANSORY have become that which has distinguished the MANSORY brand for 30 years now.
The "Le MANSORY" convinces and impresses the observer at first sight thanks to its 5 cm wider full carbon body including its extensive changes in the aerodynamic area and makes the heart of every motorsport enthusiast beat faster.
In addition to the impressive first impression, the standard output of the V6 twin-turbo engine of 483 KW (656 hp) has been increased to a demanding and appropriate 710 hp by extensive modifications to the engine management system, enabling the "Le MANSORY" in combination with adapted aerodynamics to achieve a top speed of 354 km/h (standard: 347 km/h) almost effortlessly.
Chassis modifications and the use of forged rims of the dimensions 9x21" (front) and 12x21" (rear) type "YN.5" with corresponding high-performance tyres “Continental Sport Contact 6” round off the appearance in an elegant and harmonious way and also playfully master the massively increased performance.
However, the LED main headlights, which have been completely newly and exclusively developed for the "Le MANSORY", are of particular interest. This lighting system, which is divided into four individual headlights, gives the "Le MANSORY" a completely independent look, which on the one hand clearly distinguishes it from the standard, rather round Ford GT, but on the other hand also gives it the best possible citation and, thanks to newly drawn contours and enlarged air inlets, gives it the optical brilliance that makes the "Le MANSORY" so unmistakable.
In the interior, which Ford has kept rather spartan as standard, almost not one single component was left untouched by the MANSORY specialists - as is usual with all MANSORY complete conversions. While the car is dominated exclusively by the colour blue named "Bleurion Race" and the visible carbon fibre in dark grey, the interior of the dashboard and the sports seats are also lined in white-blue Alcantara. The numerous carbon applications distributed throughout the entire passenger cell complement and compose the interior into a harmonious whole.
The "Le MANSORY" is limited to 3 units worldwide.
