Manhart Racing is mostly famous because of their amazing engine transplants for different BMW models, but this time when they took on this M3 E92, they apparently found its engine to interesting to be removed so they kept it, but did kinky things to it! The standard V8 engine of the M3 develops 420 hp, but with Manhart program applied, it delivers a colossal 655 hp!
The main modifications which have resulted in such a huge power include fitting a supercharger, a big one, and a very special titanium sport exhaust system, which has 70 millimeter pipes and 200 cell catalysts. Of course the tuner offers other editions with either 585 or 515 horsepower, but those are for kids! We want the full on package because it does zero to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds and has an unbelievable top speed of around 350 km/h!
The car definitely has the performance of a supercar, so Manhart had to do a lot of structural work to keep it check. They have fitted the M3 with the factory-approved Bilstein PSS10 suspension, 20-inch BBS challenge wheels with high-performance Continental rubber, and a high performance braking package from BMW M5 with 365mm discs at front and 345mm at the back.
Inside the car, the first thing you notice is the new racing seats covered in leather and alcantara, and then the new steering wheel which has a LED display for showing you the temperature, transverse acceleration and 1/4 mile times. Most of the aluminum parts are also replaced with carbon fiber ones.
