Manhart Racing MH5 S-Biturbo - 12.4.2012

Has 633 PS (466 kW / 624 hp)

Manhart Racing has unveiled their new MH5 S-Biturbo.

Based on the BMW M5, this "initial" tuning package allows the twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 to produce 633 PS (466 kW / 624 hp) and 780 Nm (575 lb-ft) of torque - an increase of 73 PS (54 kW / 72 hp) and 100 Nm (74 lb-ft).

Later on, the company will introduce variants with 670 PS (493 kW / 661 hp) and 735 PS (541 kW / 725 hp). Details are limited, but Manhart said these models will have modifications to their turbochargers, downpipes and exhaust system.

Besides the engine tweaks, Manhart will offer an adjustable coilover suspension that reduces the ride height 35mm front / 30mm rear. Customers can also order a sports exhaust system and unique alloy wheels that measure 20-inches front / 21-inches rear.

Manhart MH5 S-Biturbo: Predator in camouflage suit!

With the new BMW M5 of the F10 series, the automaker from Munich has now introduced the fifth M5 generation since 1984 thus underscoring its unflinching campaign for leadership in the coveted segment of high-performance limousines. With over 20,000 cars of the forerunner sold, BMW has clearly outshined all other competitors in market performance. While the "old" M5 suffered some serious missteps in the area of comfort due to its 5.0 liter V10 Aggregate (507 Horse Power) that was regarded as pretty brutal, the new 4.4 liter V8-Biturbo in combination with the seven-gear double-clutch transmission shows no weaknesses. Despite being boosted by a ten percent added performance capacity (560 Horse Power), the new V8-Biturbo stands out for its low level of fuel consumption that has been drastically reduced by almost 30 percent. Driving performance has already being an undisputed outstanding feature: Acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.4 seconds and top speed far exceeding the 300 km/h limit, thus making the F10 generation an ultimate free ride gift from BMW to owners of the M5!

Even though the data and facts of the serially produced M5 are undoubtedly quite impressive, Performance Specialists of Manhart Racing are now offering an initial Tuning Package for the "Bavarian
Predator in Camouflage suit" aimed at pushing the limits upwards by more than just a trifle. In this first performance stage, the V8 Biturbo will henceforth generate almost 633 Horse Power and transfer an impressive maximum torque of 780 Nm to the axle drive shafts.

Plans are currently in top gear to realize further stages with 670 and 735 Horse Power. This will require additional modifications on the turbochargers, downpipes and the exhaust-gas system. For a powerful
V8 sound and a general power boost, Manhart Racing has built a self-made flap-controlled sports-exhaust-gas system made of high-grade steel with four diagonally placed 90 mm exhaust pipe-ends, 200-cellsports catalytic converters and downpipes.

An MHR Club sport coilover kit that is individually adjustable in the traction and compression phase guarantees an optimized driving behavior. Moreover, Manhart Racing offers the self-made MHR Classical Wheel set for the new BMW M5, which perfectly fills up the

front wheel arch in the dimension 9.0x21 inch with tires of size 255/30R21 and the rear wheel arch in the dimension 10.5x21 inch with tires of size 295/25R21 as well as in combination with lowering of 35/30 mm.

The MHR Classical Wheel set, MHR Club sport coilover kit as well as the sports exhaust-gas system with flap control will be available as from mid-April while the first performance stage of the V8-Biturbo will be
available as from the end of April.

Good tuning job. But why? This isn't Forza. Although Forza is awesome. So I retract my statement. If I had an M5, though, I don't think I would feel the need to tune it. What scares me is the suspension adjustments, and how it will affect the ride quality. If I owned this, I would expect to be able to use it everyday, comfortably, because it is a 5er, after all. Don't forget that.
