Manhart Defender DP 500 gets Supercharged V8-like power


Manhart has revealed the Defender DP 500 for those who want the Defender Supercharged V8 power in their P400, but not exactly the Supercharged V8. We’ll talk about that in a minute.

Let’s talk a little bit about its exterior first. The stock rims are swapped with gigantic 24-inch forged rims with a light grey finish, shod with 295/30 ZR24 tyres. However, a smaller 22-inch set is also available. Other visual enhancements include fender extensions and a decal set. 30 mm lowering of the factory air suspension and brake upgrade options are also available.

Interior upgrades include Manhart’s own leather-Alcantara upholstery combinations and Recaro front seats with heating, cooling and integrated airbags.

An ECU remapping extracts 382 kW (512 metric hp) and 710 Nm (524 lb-ft) of torque from the 3.0-litre in-line 6-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine, which are 112 metric hp and 160 Nm (118 lb-ft) more than the stock tune. A stainless steel exhaust system rounds off the package.
