Mansory Conquistador

GENEVA — You have to ask yourself: Can you picture someone in the mold of Hernándo Cortés or Francisco Pizarro behind the wheel of the behemoth Mansory Conquistador? The answer is, of course, a resounding yes.

Mansory ConquistadorMansory Conquistador 2The Conquistador, the German tuning house's latest riff on the Rolls Royce Phantom, is a doff of the helmet to the Spanish soldiers and adventurers who conquered South and Central America in the 16th century. Or maybe the designers just liked the Procol Harum song of the same name. Anyway, the customized Rolls made its world debut at the Geneva auto show on Thursday.

Key features are a shadow black paint job, massive 24-inch wheels, a new front spoiler with integrated LED daytime running lights, and new side skirts. The mirrors get integrated flasher lights, and the tail is decked out with a trunk lid spoiler. High-performance Brembo brakes are part of the package.

Mansory said it modified the engine, which now churns out 490 horsepower and 575 pound-feet of torque at 3,920 rpm. The Conquistador has a top speed of 168 mph.

In the cabin, passengers can regulate the transparency of the windows via remote control. Other interior upgrades include carbon-fiber trim, ambient lighting and rear tables with integrated multimedia monitors.
