For every ridiculously fast BMW, there’s a frighteningly fast Manhart variation, the latest example of this is the Manhart MHX6 700 WB.
Sure, the standard BMW X6 M Competition churns out a strong 460 kW and 750 N.m from its 4,4-litre twin-turbocharged V8 motor, but Manhart have cranked it up as they always do. 544 kW and 900 N.m will certainly make for electrifying performance from the large coupé, and to match the performance, certain visual modifications are available, too.
The ‘WB’ in the vehicles name hints at the fact that the MHX6 features a 24-piece widebody kit. Made of “artistic forged carbon” the kit looks a little like polished marble in certain lighting conditions. In other lighting conditions though, the same finish does tend to look a little bit like you’ve left your car under a bird-filled tree overnight…
The body kit includes a front spoiler, radiator grille, two-part rear spoiler, rear diffuser, side skirts, multi-part wing extensions, exterior mirror housings and a forged carbon bonnet. The rest of the vehicle is wrapped in a matte charcoal metallic wrap and is festooned with Manhart decals just so that you know who created this monster.
Manhart Concave One double-spoke forged wheels in satin black sit in the widebody wheel arches and wear high-performance 295/30R22 and 315/30R22 tyres. By means of an in-house suspension optimisation, the MHX6 features a lower ride height of 30 millimetres over that of the X6 M Competition thanks to H&R lowering springs.
The option of four 100 mm tailpipes on the Manhart stainless steel exhaust system with valve function and either ceramic-coated or carbon-coated tailpipes is available, as well as optional Manhart Race downpipes. Aside from some Manhart design cues on the callipers, the braking system remains unchanged from that of the X6 M Competition.
The interior has been hit with the same forged carbon stick as the outside of the vehicle, so to speak, with a twelve-piece forged carbon interior kit providing the visual goods, as well as striking forged carbon backrest shells for the front seats.
