Last year, BMW unveiled the new M5 as the “powerful and quickest M5 ever”. It also won the WCOTY Award in the performance car category. If for whatever reason you find those 600 horses to be “less”, German tuner Manhart has a solution.
The MH5 700 gets MHtronik ECU upgrade that squeezes out 123 more horses and 120 Nm of more twisting power from the 4.4-litre V8 TwinPower Turbo, bringing the total to 723 hp and 870 Nm. Manhart didn’t share the 0-100 km/h numbers but, 100-200 km/h apparently happens in 5.9 seconds.
There is also a full carbon aerodynamics package for those who want even more. These include carbon front spoiler, carbon spoiler lip on the trunk lid and one-piece carbon rear diffuser.
The appearance of the MH5 700 is accompanied by a Manhart stainless steel exhaust system. According to the tuner, the MH5 700 is impressively loud in cold start. Under load, the turbo hiss is clearly audible and with each switching operation, the MH5 700 growls freely. The music is played via 102 mm carbon tailpipes.
Thanks to KW coil springs, the car sits 20 mm lower than the F90 series. The looks are rounded off with the 21-inch Manhart Concave One aluminum wheels in satin black with gold accented rim edges.
