Manhart Racing’s first attempt at tuning the BMW 1M Coupe resulted in a nice car with 420 horsepower which was considerably faster than the stock 1M. But we all knew they are not going to leave it at that. And indeed they didn’t. They just unveiled the MH1 S-Biturbo equipped with Stage 3 tuning program. This one makes 465hp and 600Nm.
465 horsepower in a car the size of a shoe will definitely put a big smile on your face. It will also please your ears, as the MH1 is fitted with a new sports exhaust system with downpipes and stainless steel Mufflers, and a carbonfiber airbox with carbon piping. The engine is also equipped with larger intercoolers, oilcoolers, and radiators.
To harness the power Manhart has used a tuned coilover suspension system with MHR Setup and AC Schnitzer Type 5 Forged wheels in 9×20″ on the front axle and 10×20″ on the rear axle are wrapped with 245’s and 295’s Continental-Sport Contact 5 tires. These will improve the chassis and let you use the power output more efficiently.
Furthermore, the MH1 comes with an aerodynamic kit consisting of a hand made carbon front splitter, a carbon bonnet with air vents and snap closures, a rear diffuser and a CSL-style trunk with Ducktail spoiler. Mirror caps are also made of carbon fibre.
This car also benefits from an interior treatment, including MHR Performance Bucket Seats featuring Alcantara and orange stitching, a specially developed LCD Display into the driver side air vent in the middle console, and a new instrument cluster with a speedometer that goes up to 330 km/h.
