BMW X4 M Gets Power Upgrade To Match A Lamborghini

Tuning / Comments

This X4 M makes more power than an X6 M.

Right off the factory line in Germany, the BMW X4 M Competition makes a boatload of power. To be specific, it generates 503 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque. However, we all know people want more than that and the guys at Manhart are experts at taking BMW M cars and making them go even faster. The German tuning house's latest creation is this BMW X4 M Comp that is now more powerful than an X6 M.

All told, this BMW X4 M, which Manhart calls the MHX4 600, produces 635 hp and 579 lb-ft of torque. That's an extra 125 hp and 100 lb-ft over the stock car. Put another way, this car will make more power than the upcoming flagship BMW XM when it arrives and will match a Lamborghini Urus.

Manhart says it can get your X4 M Comp to these figures one of two ways. First, it can remap the car's existing ECU. Problem is, that can affect warranty and resale value. So, Manhart also offers ECU tuning by way of its own MHtronik additional control unit. Shockingly enough, this is pretty much the only performance mod Manhart has to do to get these figures.

Bolt-ons are wonderfully effective on modern cars, and this one certainly proves it. However, that isn't all Manhart has done. A new stainless steel exhaust is fitted, which can be had with either carbon or ceramic tips. Given the extra speed the X4 M is now capable of, Manhart also offers a brake upgrade, though it's not pictured here.

On top of these upgrades, Manhart lowers the X4 M Comp by 1.2 inches with some H&R springs. Of course, that new, lower ride won't mean anything without making it fit the car. As such, Manhart supplies its own set of wheels measuring 9×22 and 10×22 inches, front and rear, with 255/35 and 295/30 tires.

If you'd like, the tuner offers concave wheels, measuring 9×21 and 10.5×21 inches with 265/35 and 305/30 tires. Additionally, carbon fiber is used liberally throughout, including a front spoiler, two-piece front apron add-ons, two-piece front apron inlets, mirror caps, and a rear diffuser.

Manhart also offers an interior upgrade but this show car's cabin appears to be largely stock, apart from some carbon fiber touches added throughout. Manhart will bring your car over from anywhere in the world to be tuned, and export it as well. Pricing has yet to be announced for the full kit.
