Manhart's MH4 600 is an Absolute Monster of an M4 Comp
The current-generation BMW M4 coupe, codenamed G82, continues to offer astounding performance and a thrilling experience.
Delivering 375 kW of power as standard, the folks at Manhart still don't think the M4 Competition has the power it deserves. Hence the unveiling of a tuned model that bears the MH4 600 moniker. Madness is how we would describe the tuned M4, thanks to notable upgrades on the engine and aesthetics.
It packs 473 kW of power and 780 Nm up from the standard car's 375 kW and 650 Nm, from the same 3.0-litre in-line straight-6 engine, thanks to the installation of an MHtronic auxiliary control unit which also hones the M4's sprinting muscles. It blisters from 0-200 km/h in 10.4 seconds. Its 100-200 km/h sprint is dispatched faster than you can read this, in 6.4 seconds.
Manhart doesn't mention the 0-100 km/h time or the top speed, but we expect it to be considerably faster than the standard model.
Aesthetically, Manhart claims the MH4 600 is "discreet". Nevertheless, it gets drool-worthy wheels, carbon fibre body attachments, plus a set of decals with lettering and decorative stripes. The modified M4 stands on OEM BMW Styling 1000 M forged wheels from the M Performance Parts basket painted in matt gold bronze.
They measure 20" at the front and 21" at the rear. As for the carbon front spoiler lip, it comes from the same M Performance Parts basket, while the carbon fibre radiator grille inserts, the side wing inserts and the rear diffuser are from the Manhart portfolio. As for the braking system, the factory-fitted carbon ceramics soldier on unaltered.
There are two suspension optimisation setups; H&R springs or the tuner's coilover suspension Variant 4 by KW.
Manhart says it has kept the interior as original as possible, but we won't be surprised to find dashes of carbon fibre here and there.
The German-based tuning firm offers tuning speciality for luxury and sporty brands such as Porsche, McLaren, Mercedes-Benz and Land Rover, to name a few. However, they have a speciality for 'optimising' BMWs, and like others before it, it's borderline madness in a "discreet" package.
