Mansory, a German automotive tuning shop that focuses on luxury and super-luxury cars, recently debuted its latest high-power creation, the Stallone. Based off of the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta, it features all of the mind-blowing accoutrements you can imagine – including some pretty cool stitch work.

Remember the Aston Martin Vanquish’s “hourglass” stitch? It was comprised of mirrored squiggly lines sewn at an angle with small straight lines sewn tangent to their curves – giving the pleats the appearance of an hourglass shape.

The Mansory Stallone’s interior features a similar pattern, only not sewn at an angle and minus the tangents. In other words, it’s a bunch of squiggly lines, mirrored and flowing in unison.

I love it! The pleats hint at feelings of power and movement, as if waves of electricity are flowing through the cockpit – fitting for a car that packs a 775-horsepower V12 engine. And those thin red panels on the inserts? Gorgeous!

But don’t take my word for it, judge for yourself…

    Call me old fashion, but when Ferrari do a interior these days thay hit the nail on the head, long gone are the days of shoddy fibreglass a crappy trim work its now bentley/rolls standard and if you wish to have anything else there do it for you…wallet depending!

    Not a fan myself, i’m not into the wobbly pleats

    • I too love Ferrari interiors. They really do some outstanding work.

      In regards to Mansory’s ‘wobbly pleats’, they’re definitely not for everyone. And they certainly wouldn’t work in any car. However, I do think they work here, and I give them a lot of credit for thinking outside the box.

    Kind of reminds me of the pleating on a mattress pad.:), not for me personally, but I do admire the creativity!

    I like it, a little busy but a very creative idea.I give it a 10.

  4. Retired… Like The Color Combo, Also Like The Logo On The Seats But Im Not A Fan Of The Pleats Either. Would To Me Have Looked Beter With A Supple Wrinkle Plete Leather And Im Asuming Suade. Ill Stay In The Box.
