With the S63 4,4-litre twin-turbocharged V8 motor having been cranked up to 613 kW and 1 070 Nm, one can only imagine the accelerative nature of the BMW grand tourer with all of that power being sent to all four wheels via the M-xDrive all-wheel drive system.
Such impressive power upgrades come courtesy of both hardware and software upgrades which consist of Manhart turbochargers, a Manhart intercooler, Manhart intakes and their own custom exhaust setup, as well as software tuning to compliment the package. Four 100 mm tailpipes finish off the look at the rear of the 5 metre long GT. De-catted downpipes are available too upon request, although due to emissions and noise regulations are now illegal in most countries.
KW springs sit at each corner and reduce body roll while Manhart’s staggered Spider 21-inch rims add some visual drama to the MH8 800. In addition to the above, black kidney grille and a plethora of carbon fibre accessories from Manhart’ carbon package differentiates the MH8 800 from run of the mill M8’s. This package includes front spoiler, the hood, the side skirts, and the rear diffuser all in carbon fibre, as well as the usual Manhart cherry on top, their decal kit.
What looks like BMW Individual Frozen Marina Bay Blue paintwork is actually a custom Manhart matte hue and in the cabin, all is left as is aside from an Alcantara steering wheel. The example pictured is the fifth vehicle in the limited production run of just ten MH8 800’s.
