The exotic performance wise BMW M8 finally gets a power bump from an auto tuner ‘Manhart’. As we can all see that the closest thing to a BMW supercar is the BMW M8, now consider it getting more power from an auto tuner. We will definitely call the Manhart “MH8 800” the M8 supercar.
Manhart gives the M8 a whooping 823 horsepower with its 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine and 1,050 Newton-meters (774 pound-feet) of torque. The newly gained muscle has slashed 0.6 seconds from the 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) run, which now takes only 2.6 seconds. To put that performance into perspective, Manhart’s M8 Competition Coupe is now just as quick as the new Porsche 911 Turbo S. From that point forward, the car needs just 5.7 seconds to hit 124 mph (200 km/h).
In case you need reminding, the stock M8 Competition Coupe comes with 616 HP (625 PS / 460 kW) and 553 lb-ft (750 Nm), channeling it to the all-wheel drive system via an 8-speed automatic transmission.
An aftermarket exhaust system is also available from Manhart, with optional carbon or ceramic-coated tailpipes, valve control and a few other gizmos. The ride has been dropped by 1.2 inches (30 mm) thanks to KW coilovers, and the suspension and carbon-ceramic brakes can be further upgraded.
In the looks department, the M8 Competition Coupe has gained a front apron, rear spoiler lip and diffuser insert made of carbon fiber. The gold strips contrast the black paint finish and the color was replicated on the 9×21-inch front and 10.5×21-inch rear concave wheels, which are shod with the 265/30 and 305/25 tires respectively.
The final upgrade concerns the interior, which has been customized with carbon fiber accents on the steering wheel and paddle shifters.
