Unless ugly German SUVs are your thing, the BMW X6 is far from the most desirable car on sale. Fortunately, aftermarket tuner Manhart has managed to make the X6 a serious performance car prospect with numerous visual and mechanical modifications.
Dubbed the MHX6 800, Manhart has managed to squeeze out 823 hp and 811 lb-ft (1,100 Nm) of torque for the SUV courtesy of an upgraded 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine. You can forget about the new BMW M5 then with its ‘lackluster’ 600 hp, the range-topping X6 from Manhart actually offers serious supercar-beating performance.
To match the changes under the skin, the SUV adopts a bold new bodykit that includes overhauled bumpers, a vented hood, rear diffuser and trunklid spoiler. Also included in the package are a number of racing stripes that remind us of those from the Mercedes-AMG C63 S Coupe Edition 1 except rather than yellow, they are gold.
Some tweaks have also been made to the X6’s interior including Manhart badging, plaques denoting the model’s name and numerous carbon accents.
