Manhart’s MH5 Is A BMW M5 With 723PS And A Carbon Fiber Pack

The sixth-gen M5 is almost ready to celebrate its first anniversary, but tuners have already laid their hands on it.

Manhart’s name has recently joined the list with the MH5 700. The super saloon benefits from a new ECU, which bumps the power of the twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 to a staggering 723PS (713hp / 532kW) and 870Nm (642lb-ft) of torque.

Unfortunately, the aftermarket specialist doesn’t say how quick this tuned M5 F90 is from 0 to 100km/h (0-62mph). But since it boasts an extra 123PS (121hp / 90kW) and 120Nm (89lb-ft) over the stock car, a few tenths of a second have been likely shaved from the latter’s 3.4 seconds time. Which is entirely plausible since Manhart claims their M5 takes only 5.9sec to accelerate from 100 to 200km/h (62-124mph).

The tuner can also fit your ride with a stainless steel exhaust system and, for an extra cost, customers can order the carbon fiber exhaust tips. In this combo, the car can “behave calm and gentle”, but push the throttle down and the MH5 shouts like there is no tomorrow.

Other mechanical upgrades include the addition of KW coilover springs, which bring the M5 about 20mm (0.8in) closer to the ground, while leaving just enough room under the wheel arches for the 21-inch Concave One aluminum rims that are finished in Silk-Matte Black.

Manhart’s M5 also features a carbon fiber exterior package consisting of a front spoiler with side blades, new diffuser, and a hood that’s said to be in development, contrasted by the matte gold decals.

As Manhart says, “interior changes are very subtle”, as they comprise of the company’s logo on the steering wheel and new floor mats with special embroidery.
