The Manhart MH4 GTR is over 700 horsepower of German magic.
BMW has a rich history of racing in the Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters (DTM), and since its return in 2012, has seen great success with both its M3 DTM and M4 DTM. In 2016, BMW launched a special edition of its M4 racecar limited to only 200 units named the Champion Edition. Manhart, the infamous German tuning company which is responsible for creations such as the 850-horsepower 911 Turbo S, and the 350-hp Mini Cooper JCW GP got its hands on one of these track-ready racers and has now developed it into one serious beast, which it has named the Manhart MH4 GTR.
Under the hood, the MH4 GTR has seen some extensive upgrades: the car now features water injection, an ECU remap, a Manhart intercooler, carbon intake, aluminum charge pipes and a stainless steel exhaust system along with a set of downpipes. The end result is a massive 708 hp and 723 lb-ft of torque, up from the standard 500 hp and 443 lb-ft. To cope with the increased power, the seven-speed dual-clutch transmission has also seen some bolstering. Manhart has left the chassis and brake system untouched, as it was already brilliant from the factory.
The exterior of the MH4 GTR has been upgraded with a large number of aesthetic parts, but Manhart has decided to leave the original white, red and blue color scheme untouched. The exterior features a carbon GTS-style hood, a carbon front spoiler, spoiler add-on, rear wing, carbon rear diffuser, BMW M Performance rear spoiler, and mirror caps. The car rolls on a set of stunning Manhart Concave One wheels finished off in Silk Matte Black and is wrapped in Michelin Cup 2 tires. The interior was left as is, and features an Alcantara steering wheel, Recaro bucket seats and various carbon fiber trim pieces. Those lucky enough to own a stock M4 DTM Champion Edition can get in contact with Manhart to turn it into a completely different animal.
