Meet the Manhart MH5 GTR, a one-of-a-kind take on the BMW M5 CS

Some weeks ago, Manhart showed us a tuning kit named MH5 800 for the regular BMW M5, and here comes a unique upgrade of the CS version.

Some weeks ago, Manhart showed us a tuning kit named MH5 800 for the regular BMW M5, and here comes a unique upgrade of the CS version.

Dubbed the MH5 GTR, the car comes wrapped in a dull-blue wrap with grey accents here and there. All OEM gold-colored accents get replaced with either silver or black ones.

Black forged wheels sized 21 inches across fill out the arches, while the stock exhaust system makes room for a cat-back, valve-controlled one culminating in quad 102mm (4”) tips.

The interior stays blissfully stock with premium red-stitched leather and Alcantara adorning almost every surface in view. The Manhart logo on the steering wheel is the only noticeable change.

The powertrain, on the other hand, enjoys quite an overhaul. Manhart dials the performance up to 788 PS (777 hp / 579 kW) and 935 Nm (690 lb-ft) of torque, a healthy boost over the standard 636 PS (627 hp / 468 kW) and 750 Nm (553 lb-ft).

Curiously enough, the regular MH5 800 tuning kit mentioned above actually offers even more power and torque than that. We do not know the reasons why this M5 CS was given a less extreme boost, but we suspect that it could have something to do with its resale value. Maxing out the numbers degrades the powertrain too fast; maybe the owner did not want that to happen to a collection-worthy vehicle.
