F10 BMW M5 gets Manhart Racing tuning
The BMW M5 is the sort of performance car that tuning companies don’t shy away from, that’s both good and bad, depending on how big a fan of the car itself you are.
Some improve it while many manage to ruin it with stupid body kits, completely compromised ride or other nuisances such as spoilers, wings and vynil.
Thankfully, the Germans at Manhart Racing have gone a different route and actually made an interesting tune up for the newest edition of the car that got the sport sedan ball rolling.
Manhart Racing’s new MH5 S-Biturbo package comes with a very complicated sounding name and yet is remarkably simple to explain as a tuning proposition for the BMW M5.
The looks are almost exactly the same as you get on the standard car. The only changes can be seen in the alloy wheel set and in the lowered stance.
Wheels are 20 inch / 21 inch and, should you not like the design, they’re optional so you can make yourself a nice sleeper. What isn’t optional is the new suspension.
It’s an adjustable coilover kit which lowers the front end of the BMW M5 by 35 mm and the rear by 30 mm. We’ll assume the comfort factor has a lot to do with that adjustable mention.
Under the bonnet, Manhart Racing had a bit of fun and now the 5.5 liter V8 engine produces 633 hp and 575 lb-ft of torque. Should you feel the need to hear the engine better, a sports exhaust system is also available.
What isn’t available yet but will be in the future is a lot more power. Manhart promise that two more powerful kits will be introduced in a while and they will feature outputs of 670 and 735 hp.
