Manhart, the well-known German tuning company, unveiled their MH6 700 at the Essen Motor Show, but the official details, photos and specs were released today. Based on the BMW M6 (F13) Coupe, the Manhart MH6 700 comes with an extensive carbon exterior package consisting of a front spoiler with optional “RS” front spoiler blade, new engine hood with GTR air inlets, a new rear air diffusor and a trunk lid spoiler.
Moreover, a new set of carbon fiber mirror caps and a set of covers for the front skirt were added. The vehicle you see in the photos also received a technically-impressive full wrap in longitudinal cross-section aluminum metallic with incorporated (embossment look alike) Manhart Performance logos.
The wheel-arches house the Manhart Concave ONE wheels in the new cast version of these concave-formed rims. The light alloy rims are covered by Michelin Pilot Super Sport High-Performance tires of the dimensions 265/30ZR21 on the front and 305/25ZR21 on the rear axle. The compression and rebound-adjustable KW variation 3 coilover kit is supplied by Manhart Performance.
Under the hood, the 4.4-liter V8 engine was upgraded with a new DME control system, a Carbon-Air-Intake-System and the company’s own exhaust system with downpipes, sports catalytic converters and sports rear silencers made of stainless steel with four 100-millimeter end-pipes.
As a result, the engine is rated at 743 hp and 953 Nm of torque and it can push the vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.8 seconds. Manhart also says that the MH6 700 accelerates from 100 km/h (62 mph) to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 6.3 seconds and from 80 km/h (50 mph) to 250 km/h (155 mph) in 12.4 seconds. Top speed is electronically limited at 320 km/h or 200 mph.
A LED accent light cuts over the top of the Adaptive LED Headlights equipped as standard on the two models. Their bright white, three-dimensional LED light rings are levelled off to stunning effect at the top and lower edges. Dipped beam and main beam utilize both light rings. Providing the light are LED units, which are situated on a horizontal rib running through the center of the units and bolster their light into the reflectors in front of them. This guarantees the distinguishable look of the twin circular headlights comes across obviously in every condition. The direction indicators - in the form of horizontally arranged LED units - are incorporated into the headlight units underneath the light rings.
Side view: athletically flared wheel arches, side gills, forged M light-alloy wheels.
The trademark M energy of the two models is likewise clearly obvious from the side. The front side sections of the vehicle highlight classic M gills. Their three-dimensional shaping, wide chrome frames and indicator bars - which likewise carry the M logo - provide them a remarkably deep-set appearance. Tuned in to the more extensive wheel arches, the character lines around the gills are appropriately prominent. Dazzling creases on the same model-particular side skirts clear upwards, redirecting the look to the rear wheels.
The all-new BMW M6 Coupe and the all-new BMW M6 Convertible are equipped with 19-inch M light-alloy wheels as standard. The forged wheels showcase seven double-spokes in a two-tone finish. The alternative 20-inch M light-alloy wheels, meanwhile, hint at diminished weight with their five convoluted double spokes and permit a clear line of sight through to the robust braking system.
