German tuning knowledgeable Manhart has a knack for tuning turbocharged V8 BMWs just like the MH5 GTR (an excessive model of the M5 Competitors mannequin) and MHX6 700WB (an X6 M on steroids). It has now affixed its sights as soon as extra to the BMW M8 Competitors coupe, and the brand new automotive has extra of all the things than the final MH8 800 that debuted greater than a yr in the past.
And in contrast to the earlier MH8 800, the brand new automotive will not be sporting the standard gold and black Manhart paint combo. As well as, solely ten models will ever exist, making it a genuinely limited-edition mannequin therefore its official identify: MH8 800 Restricted 01/10.
As anticipated from a Manhart creation, the MH8 800 includes a carbon-rich exterior, and also you’ll discover it within the hood cutouts, entrance spoiler, facet skirts, and rear diffuser. This specific instance is sporting matte blue paint (with racing stripes) and has color-coded 21-inch Manhart Spider wheels wrapped in wider low-profile efficiency tires. As well as, the lowered stance is courtesy of Manhart height-adjustable springs by KW suspensions.
Below the hood is the place many of the magic occurs. The most recent MH8 800 retains the inventory M8 Competitors’s 4.0-liter bi-turbo V8 engine. However with a brand new Manhart turbo efficiency package, a Manhart intercooler, and a remapped ECU, it now pumps out 823 horsepower and 774 pound-feet of torque, fairly an uptick over the inventory automotive’s 625-horsepower and 553 pound-feet torque output.
With that a lot energy, it scoots to 60 mph from a useless cease in beneath 2.6-seconds. It additionally reaches 60 mph to 124 mph in 5.7-seconds. It’s not solely correctly fast, however we guess it sounds the enterprise with a modified exhaust and quad four-inch carbon-clad tailpipes. Manhart will gladly set up racing downpipes with out cats or a chrome steel OPF-delete exhaust system for added cash in case you like extra sound.
In fact, each side of the Manhart MH8 800 is totally customizable by the client, together with the inside. Commonplace fitment is Manhart’s carbon refinement package deal that provides carbon accents on the steering wheel and paddle shifters. Nonetheless, you may sometimes fee a totally bespoke inside along with your private selection of colours, supplies, and finishes.
Manhart failed to say how a lot all this wonderment will price. BMW has lowered the MSRP of its 2022 BMW M8 Competitors from $155,500 to $139,500 (not together with vacation spot charges). After factoring within the mods, you’ll most likely find yourself with a sub-$150,000 invoice, not a foul worth to pay for a limited-edition, supercar-baiting grand tourer.
