German tuning shop Manhart has been offering tuned F90 M5 models since 2018 in the form of the MH5 700, but inspired by the redesigned 2021 M5 and 2022 M5 CS, it has announced a new and even more powerful MH5 800.
After visiting the workshops of the eminent bureau, the BMW M5 receives a 4.4-liter V8 with twin turbocharging and 804 hp. and 1050 Nm of torque. This makes it 187 hp. more powerful than the standard M5 Competition and 177 hp. more powerful M5 CS coming off the factory assembly line.
Manhart motorists upgraded the car’s native engine with the help of their proprietary turbocharger kit, etc. The 8-speed automatic transmission was also upgraded: now it is able to withstand increased torque. The tuners are still silent about the performance of the new item.
Obviously, the MH5 800 will be faster than the standard M5 Competition, which sprints from 0-100 km / h in just 3.3 seconds and has a top speed of 305 km / h.
The new Manhart exhaust includes Race tailpipes without catalytic converters, a stainless steel rear muffler with control valve, and more. Four tailpipes are optionally available with carbon or ceramic coating.
Moreover, the modernized exhaust system has not received approval from the TÜV specialists, so it can only be used in export markets outside of Germany.
In addition to the engine and exhaust system, Manhart redesigned the suspension with H&R -30mm adjustable drop springs to improve handling.
While official photos posted by Manhart show the BMW F90 M5 before the facelift, updates are also available for the new model. External changes turned out to be minimal. The most obvious are the 21-inch Manhart Concave One alloy wheels in a matte black finish.
There is also a carbon fiber body kit (spoiler, side skirts, mirror caps, diffuser, rear spoiler lip) and an optional carbon fiber hood with GTR air intakes. For the car in the photo, the tuners opted for a matte red metallic paint with pink accents, combined with a black stripe and black side graphics. Inside, there is an LED headliner reminiscent of Rolls-Royce trim and lots of carbon fiber décor.
The cost of all updates is EUR 46,045 in excess of the cost of the donor car.
