Manhart Is Already Working On The New M3 And M4
Renown tuning company Manhart has been working on the latest BMW M3 and M4 models.
The latest BMW M3 and M4 (G80 and G82) are only just showing up in dealerships around the world, but Manhart has wasted no time. They’ve already gone to work on both models and have offered a preview of what they will produce.
The BMW M3 will come out of Manhart’s facilities as the MH3 600, while the M4 will be the MH4 600. The 3-litre inline 6 engines will be pushed from 510hp and 650Nm of torque (from the M3 and M4 Competition variants) to about 620hp and 750Nm of torque with a little help from Manhart. The standard M3 and M4 models will probably top out closer to 590hp with tuning.
Here’s what the tuning company are doing to extract more performance out of these already extreme vehicles:
- Manhart MHtronic Powerbox
- cat-back or OPF-back exhaust systems optional with twin carbon tailpipes
- optional middle silencer replacement pipes
- lowering springs made by H&R
- In-house developed 21″ Concave One forged wheels (staggered setup) with optional gold pinstripe
- decal kit with golden touches optional
- new carbon aerodynamic parts
- front splitter
- rear spoiler
- side flaps
These are part of Manhart’s stage 1 tuning programme for both cars. They’re planning a stage 2 tuning programme later on.
Here’s the press release with more.
Although the new BMW M3 (G80) and M4 (G82) are only just rolling into the showrooms of BMW dealers across the globe, the tuning specialists at MANHART Performance are already giving you a preview on the tuning program currently in development for the new high-performance sedan and coupé.
The names of the variants will – as usual – allow conclusions to be drawn about the engine performance of both: The MANHART MH3 600 and MH4 600, based on the factory 510 HP and 650 Nm strong Competition variants, they promise approximately 600 HP. To be more precise, after the installation of the MANHART MHtronik Powerbox, their output should increase to approximately 620 HP and 750 Nm. The standard 30 HP weaker non-Competition M3 and M4 come to approximately 590 HP after installing the MANHART MHtronik.
In terms of exhaust technology, MANHART Performance will be offering both cat-back and OPF-back exhaust systems – each with twin carbon tailpipes. Each will also be available with optional middle silencer replacement pipes.
In addition, MANHART Performance will offer lowering springs made by H&R for the new M3 four-door and the new M4 two-door, as well as the in-house developed Concave One forged wheels in the dimensions 9.0×21 inches, with 265/30R21 tyres on the front and 10.5×21 inches with 305/25R21 tyres on the rear axle. As an option, the rims can have the MANHART-typical gold pinstripe. A decal kit with golden touches will be available for the body work of the MH3 600 and MH4 600.
For the new models, new carbon aerodynamic parts such as a bonnet, front splitter, rear spoiler and diffuser as well as side flaps are also being developed right now.
Phase 1 of the tuning program includes a wide variety of parts and options, which will allow clients to tune and upgrade their beloved new Bimmer. For the second phase MANHART Performance will go a step further, taking both the M3 and M4 to the next level. Stay tuned for the release of this tuning package later in the year.
