Luxury automotive tuner Mansory has debuted its special take on the Rolls-Royce Phantom VIII at this year’s Geneva Motor Show.
The German tuner’s Rolls-Royce Phantom Bushukan Edition features a completely bespoke body kit altering the vehicle’s shape with a more forceful execution, larger 24-inch black wheels, and a beautiful two-tone paint job.
Although Mansory focused on increasing the vehicle’s aerodynamics, the alterations to the body result in a boxier, more angular front end. The added lip/grille extension nearly makes a right-angle of the roofline; subtle, it ain’t, but it is remarkable. According to the press release, the name Bushukan refers to the citrus fruit held in the Buddha’s hand, making it a questionable choice only as far as the implicit suggestion regarding the Enlightened One’s choice of rides. The car will surely sell in China, its target market.
The custom work continued inside, with cream leather seats, luxe carpeting, and a series of trim upgrades to highlight an individual customer’s sense of style.
Last, but certainly not least, Mansory finished its tuneup with an upgrade to the already powerful 6.75-liter, twin-turbocharged V12 engine. The tuner was able to increase power production from 563 horsepower to 610 hp, a considerable increase that should more than compensate for the additional weight.
