Article by Andrew Christian, on June 7, 2014

Manhart officially introduced the MH2 Clubsport based on the BMW M235i Coupe. Just like the standard M235i Coupe, the Manhart MH2 Clubsport uses the 3.0-liter six-cylinder in-line engine with M Performance TwinPower Technology that was boosted from 326 hp (240 kW) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque to an impressive 430 hp (316 kW) and 592 Nm (436 lb-ft) of torque.

The new power output was obtained thanks to a bigger charging air intercooler, a new exhaust system with Manhart downpipe and 200-cell sports catalyzers. Manhart also eliminated the top speed limitation and prepared and the new vehicle achieves an impressive top speed of 300 km/h or 186 mph.

Besides the two round 90 mm stainless steel tailpipes, Manhart added a reinforced sports clutch that delivers the power of the engine to the rear wheels through the six-speed transmission. In addition, there is a differential lock on demand, but also a new Club sport coilover kit from kW.

The vehicle sits on 19-inch Manhart Concave One wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. Behind the wheels there are 6-piston fixed calipers with 350 mm brake discs and Pagid sports brake pads as well as steel flex lines.

Regarding the design, Manhart added a new front spoiler, rear air diffuser and a rear spoiler developed by BMW Performance and largely made up of carbon fiber. Furthermore, there are carbon fiber mirror covers and dull-yellow special wrap.

Inside, we find Recaro Pole Position full-shell seats with 4-point suspender belts, a Club sport bracket with a double cross that replaces the rear bench.

Moreover, Manhart covered the naked metal plat in soft rug lining. The driver’s space was decorated with a special handbrake handle, a gear lever knob and aluminum pedal lining from BMW Performance program.
