It appears that the entire body of the Cyrus is remanufactured from extremely light ‘prepress autoclave carbon’ including both wing extensions for the front and rear and also side skirts and bonnet which comes with ‘power domes’ in place of the grilles. The Cyrus is claimed to be about 70 kg lighter than the donor car. Exactly how Mansory get a gold thread into the carbon weave isn’t known but much if the interior facings on the example featured here match the exterior carbon. The car shown here is probably the first Cyrus built, based on a DB9 donor car. It was shown at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show on the Mansory company stand.
The engine of the Cyrus remains unchanged from the original donor car, although Mansory are happy to fit a sports exhaust system and sports catalytic converter plus a high performance manifold, liberating another 28 bhp allowing modest improvement to the performance. The Cyrus is fitted with 10 spoke ultra-light wheels, the lightest forged wheels available. Fitted with Dunlop Sport Maxx tyres, the front wheels are 20 inch in diameter and 9 inches wide; the rears are 21 inch diameter and 10.5 inches wide 295/25 tyres.
Mansory are keen to point out that they only intend to build, or more accurately, convert 15 of these cars although no information is available as to how close they are in completing this number. Car #7 has been spotted for sale and features a more traditional matte black carbon weave. The cost of the Cyrus is dependant on the final spec but the conversion is priced in the region of €380,000 plus the cost of the donor DB9 or DBS.
