BMW M2 Gets a Manhart Makeover with 705 Horsepower

Earlier this year, Manhart introduced the MH2 560, a beefed-up version of the BMW M2. It featured a body kit, new exhaust system, lowering springs, and a 100bhp power boost to the car’s 3.0-litre twin-turbo straight-six engine. While the MH2 560 was thrilling, Manhart hinted that their enhancements for the G87 would not stop there.

True to their word, Manhart has now unveiled the MH2 GTR II, a powerhouse that significantly ups the ante. This new iteration surpasses the standard M2’s 454bhp and skyrockets to 705bhp and 627 lb-ft of torque. These astonishing figures are achieved through upgrades, including a new ECU, a carbon intake, and a free-breathing exhaust system.

The MH2 GTR II isn’t just about raw power. It boasts a sprint time from 62mph to 124mph in just 5.76 seconds, highlighting its impressive track capabilities. While this is the only performance statistic released, other numbers will likely be equally remarkable.

This vehicle is more than a powerhouse; it’s a statement piece. Classified as a ‘limited edition’, the MH2 GTR II features a striking carbon fibre aero kit that enhances its aggressive stance, all wrapped in a vibrant magenta paint finish. Additionally, the car sports an eye-catching wing that contributes to its fierce aesthetics.

Further distinguishing the MH2 GTR II are its newly forged Raffa wheels. Adorned in Manhart’s signature ‘champagne’ accent colour, it measures 20 inches in the front and 21 inches in the rear. New KW lowering springs and Schroth harnesses complement the car’s lower profile. These ensure you stay securely in place as you unleash the vehicle’s formidable power.

Internally, the car has been transformed equally. It features a robust roll cage and a rear-seat delete, enhancing its safety and performance-focused interior. The brakes, deemed sufficiently strong in their standard form, have been cosmetically aligned with the rest of the vehicle through a repaint to match the bodywork.

Manhart’s MH2 GTR II represents a bold step forward in tuning for the BMW M2, offering an exhilarating blend of extreme performance, standout style, and racing-ready enhancements.
