Manhart Racing has really been busy this year, working on a couple new models to stun the world with. After claiming the world record for the fastest BMW M5 with their Manhart MH5 Biturbo model, the guys showed up at the Essen Motor Show 2013 with 3 world premieres.
The Bronze BMW X5 M is, by far, the most impressive. Not only because of its huge size and aggressive styling but also because of the attached spec sheet. Why is that? Because it says the car now has 700 HP.

That means the guys gave the S63 4.4-liter V8 engine 140 extra HP and 376 extra Nm of torque, reaching the fabulous 1,056 Nm figure (779 lb-ft) of torque. According to their own statements, that was achieved only through ECU optimizing, which makes it even more impressive.

On top of all that, you’ll notice Manhart exhaust downpipes, straight pipes with valve control and new mufflers. Suspension comes from KW and the foil is bronze matt metallic.

Inside, the cluster has been changed to Manhart’s own alongside the seats that come from Recaro (sport CS, of course).
