Manhart Racing MH3 V8 R Biturbo BMW M3

The psychopaths over at Manhart Racing have really excelled themselves this time with their latest program for the E92 BMW M3.

Rather than tune the M3’s factory engine, Manhart chose to go big by implanting the twin-turbocharged 4.4-litre V8 and 6-speed automatic transmission from the X6 M SUV, but it didn’t stop there. Remapped ECU software, along with stainless steel downpipes and a titanium Akrapovic Evolution exhaust system with a 200 cpsi sports catalytic converter sees output raised from 408 kW (555 hp) and 680 Nm of torque to a furibund 488 kW (655 hp) and 975 Nm. Sensibly, a differential lock has been fitted and the V-Max has been removed, meaning a top speed of 320 km/h is possible.

Chassis upgrades include a KW Variant 3 coilover suspension kit and the X6 M’s braking system with 396 mm and 374 mm cross-drilled discs, while the original wheels make way for a set of Manhart’s ultralight Concave One forged wheels, measuring 9 and 12×20 inches and wrapped in 255/30 and 305/25 tyres.

Visually, the M3 wears BMW Performance flaps, carbon fibre mirror casings, rear diffuser and replacement hood with GTR air intakes and suggestive bulge.
