MANHART Performance unveils the MH5 GTR project, a one-off amped-up version of the M5 CS. Launched in 2020, the M5 CS is currently the most powerful M5 in BMW’s lineup, but potential for optimization is still there.
The new MH5 GTR still has the same 4.4-liter, bi-turbo, V-8 engine, however, it’s souped up with a MANHART carbon air intake and MHtronik auxiliary control unit. The two changes give the V-8 a total of 788 HP and 689 lb-ft of torque.
The German tuner will also use its proprietary stainless-steel exhaust system with valve control and four 100 mm carbon tailpipes, 9 x 21” front and 10.5 x 21” rear wheels in Silk Matt Black MANHART Classic Line Y-Spoke or Silver Gray Ten-Spoke rims, and Variant 4 Coilover suspension by KW Suspensions. The eight-speed automatic transmission and the braking system carry over from the CS, but the latter can be tuned upon request.
It gets a dark green finish with decorative stripes and lettering, while the interior changes are limited to refined floor mats with the MANHART lettering.
Though MANHART Performance hasn’t disclosed the price tag for the MH5 GTR, interested parties can check out the Manhart website to send an inquiry for further details.
