Manhart MHX6 pushes the BMW X6 M power to 700 PS

Article by Christian A., on June 12, 2017

German car tuner Manhart Performance is famous for its extraordinary BMWs. In typical Manhart fashion, the team amps up the BMW X6 M by giving it an extra 123hp and 111lb-ft of torque. Dubbed as the MHX6 700, Manhart’s powerful tuning totals the output of the 4.4-liter twin turbo V8 engine by up to 690hp (700PS) and 664lb-ft (900Nm).

To achieve this, the sports activity coupe benefited from the auto tuner’s 300-cell downpipes, new stainless steel muffler with valve control, software optimization and massive new tailpipes measuring 4x 100mm. The MHX6 700’s enhanced V8 engine is hooked to an eight speed M Steptronic gearbox with Drivelogic. Despite not disclosing the sprint time, Manhart’s superb tuning abilities will surely take a few seconds off the standard’s 4.2-second acceleration.

For improved handling and to keep the car closer to the ground, Manhart has also performed some adjustments on the chassis including the use of an H&R lowering kit.

Beyond the powerful upgrades, Manhart Performance has also added a string of updates on the stock BMW X6 M’s exterior. Counted among them are the new front spoiler, new bonnet with GTR air inlets, a custom rear diffuser and new spoiler mounted at the trunk.

All upgraded parts outside are made with carbon fiber for better aerodynamics. To finish off the look, the SUV sits on a new set of Concave ONE wheels measuring 10.5x22-inches at the front and 11.5x22-inches at the rear. These are fitted to a 295/30 and 335/25 new set of tires for enhanced performance.

As standard, the BMW X6 M’s interior is equipped with M performance cockpit along with optional M sports seats and high bolsters for each side. Among its exclusive interior features are knee pads, a 3-spoke leather steering wheel with paddle shifters while the center console houses the driving dynamics buttons as well as the gear shift lever. To make it more luxurious, BMW used premium materials such as full-leather Aragon Brown for the upholstery and high gloss finishers either in fine wood or carbon fiber for the trims.

It is unknown if the German auto tuner has actually upgraded the MHX6 700’s interior. In the past, Manhart has also raised the level of a standard BMW X3 which included an upgraded tachometer and even fitted it with Awron performance display systems monitor. Regardless, it isn’t hard to see why Manhart is known worldwide for the most outrageous BMWs.
