Carbon Fiber All Day: Introducing the Mansory Cyrus Based on Aston Martin DBS or DB9
Making its world debut at the 63rd Frankfurt Motor Show this year, the Mansory Cyrus, based on the Aston Martin DBS or DB9, is pretty breathtaking. The body panels are made entirely out of aerospace grade carbon fiber, replacing the original metal sheeting. The Cyrus has a redesigned front skirt with bigger inlets and a carbon hood with two power domes. In the rear, there is a revised rear skirt with integrated diffuser and an extended rear wing.
A new exhaust system with stainless steel tailpipes adds a throaty roar. The Cyrus gets some new “feet” with 20×9-inch wheels up front and 21×10.5-inch wheels in the rear. Dunlop Sport Maxx tires are wrapped over the black ultra-forged rims. To round out the package, the Mansory throws in a coil-over suspension that has been dropped and tweaked.
Mansory is always pretty creative with its interior upgrades and their work on the Aston Marting DB9 and DBS is no exception. The introductory model showcases a pretty radical two-tone theme with red and black luxury leather. Custom carbon fiber pieces are fitted on the dashboard and center console. Hand-stitched decorative trim is featured on the dash and seats. There is also a redesigned ergonomic steering wheel. Aluminum is used for the pedals and foot rests.
The Mansory Cyrus will set you back €380,000 on top of a base Aston Martin DB9 or DBS. This is a mere pittance for this kind of aesthetic treatment if you just robbed a bank. Strangely enough, even with all of the amazing new supercars being launched, the Cyrus still had many thinking that it might be the best looking car at the show. I do think it is an amazing looking car but for that kind of additional coin, I’d want much more performance. There haven’t been any specs yet on the carbon fiber weight reduction so it must be negligible. Horsepower only gets boosted by 28 for the DB9 featured at the show. In any case, it’s still one of the best uses of carbon fiber we’ve seen to date…
