The BMW M2 Competition by Manhart is as much about substance as it is about form
Tuner Manhart has announced a run of 10 BMW M2 Competition conversions named the MH2 500. Each car will get new wheels, body kit parts, suspension and power figures.
A control module dubbed the MHtronik raises the power from the usual 410 PS (404 hp / 302 kW) to 518 PS (511 hp / 381 kW). The torque goes from 550 Nm (406 lb-ft) to 700 Nm (516 lb-ft). Given that even the stock car finishes its standard sprint in 4.3 seconds, it should be logical for the tuned one to manage the same in under 4 seconds.
As for the carbon fiber aero kit, it obviously draws inspiration from the M2 CS and includes a front spoiler, a rear diffuser and a trunk lid wing, among other details. Complementing the sporty image are 20-inch wheels and quad exhaust tips.
Body accents probably deserve a special mention. As you may know, Manhart’s signature colors are dull gold on gloss black. In this project, however, the gold makes way to fashionable silver, and the end result is a fair bit less dull. Good job!
nterior novelty boils down to a telemetry display that obstructs the central left air blower and provides real-time drivetrain data in return.
