While one might usually associate Manhart performance with wild versions of BMW Group products, every now and then they dip their toe into other pots, as seen here with the Manhart QV 600, their take on the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio Verde.
Manhart have cranked the Giulia’s 2,9-litre Ferrari-derived twin-turbocharged V6 up from its stock 380 kW and 600 N.m to an impressive 487 kW and 790 Nm. This comes courtesy of the Manhart turbo performance kit which consists of upgrades to both of the turbochargers, more efficient intercoolers and Manhart ECU remapping.
Manhart OPF-Delete replacement pipes with 200-cell catalytic converters and race downpipes without a catalytic converter are connected to a Manhart stainless steel exhaust system with valve control by Remus, culminating in a set of four 100 mm carbon fibre tailpipes. In order to accommodate the hike in power and torque, the ZF eight- Speed automatic transmission has received a Manhart transmission upgrade, too.
20-inch Manhart Classic Line rims in satin black with rim decoration in Manhart-typical gold sit at all four corners, however at the customer’s request, alternative colours and finishes can be had.
Manhart suspension springs by H&R ensure that the wheels sit tightly within the fenders, lowering the Italian stallion by 40 mm. Visually, the QV 600 receives Manhart’s standard black livery with embellishments.
The brake system and interior of the car shown remain standard, however these can be upgraded, too, at the request of the customer.
It is worth noting that Manhart have the QV 700 waiting in the wings and while no figures have been announced just yet, they do mention that it will feature a “spectacular aerodynamic kit…”
