Mansory Design & Holding GmbH, the renowned sports- and luxury car modification specialists, has presented their latest developments for the current V6 and V8 range of engines for the Range Rover Sport and Range Rover Vogue.
The specialists have tapped into the British SUV’s reserves of power, and unlocked an impressive increase in performance from the diesel engines by integrating an additional engine control unit. To increase the power of the supercharged petrol engines, a pulley kit is used in addition to the additional engine control unit. This increases the manifold pressure in the standard supercharger due to a change in transmission, which forces a greater amount of compressed oxygen into the combustion chamber.
Once the Mansory-Powerbox is fitted in a simple Plug & Play process, the 3.0l SDV6 diesel engine has 243kW/330PS at 3,700 rpm at its disposal. At the same time, torque increases to an impressive 700Nm at 1,800 rpm (production model: 215kW/292PS at 4,000 rpm and 600Nm at 2,000 rpm). The turbocharged 3.0l TDV6 diesel engine becomes 214kW/290PS at 3,700 rpm.
The torque increases to 700Nm at 1,800 rpm (production model: 190kW/258PS at 4,000 rpm and 600Nm at 2,000 rpm). The performance of the 4.4l SDV8 diesel engine, goes up to 279kW/380PS at 3,500 rpm. Torque increases to 800Nm at 1,300 – 3,500 rpm (Production model: 250kW/339PS at 3,500 rpm and 700Nm at 1,750 – 3,500 rpm).
The power of the 5.0l V8 petrol engine goes up to a mighty 81kW/110 PS at 456kW/620PS at 5,800 – 6,500 rpm and torque increases to a veritable mountain moving 800Nm at 2,000 – 5,500 rpm. Prices for the MANSORY-ECU for diesel engines start at €1.690,- plus VAT. For the additional ECU combined with the pulley kit for petrol engines, prices start at €2.990,-plus VAT.
