An aero kit, 100 extra horses and ADV.1 wheels are the highlights of this Manhart tuning project.
German BMW tuning specialist Manhart Racing last appeared on our radar with its enviable 650xi Gran Coupe project, and has popped up again with this aftermarket program for the F10-generation BMW M5, complete with aero kit, wheels, engine and suspension upgrades. The aerodynamic kit consists of a new front spoiler, hood with integrated GTR air intakes and a rear diffuser and spoiler. The sports sedan was then wrapped in matte-grey metallic and given decorative MHR stripes. 21-inch three-part ADV.1 wheels complete the exterior mods.
Performance upgrades include a custom carbon air intake system and sports silencer with two 90mm stainless-steel twin tailpipes complete with valve control. The combined effect of these mods to the 4.4-liter V8 is a bump in output to 646 horsepower and 570 pound-feet of torque, up from 560 and 502. That translates to a top speed of 196 mph, which is better handled by a KW Clubsport fully adjustable suspension and a performance-optimized racing drive-shaft.
