The Manhart Performance team has given the BMW M2 Competition a significant makeover, resulting in the MH2 700 model. While the exterior might not seem overly wild, it features a prominent rear wing and eye-catching graphics. Notably, the car has a roll cage, indicating its performance potential.
Under the hood, the MH2 700 boasts a substantial power upgrade, delivering 715 horsepower. This is an improvement over a previous Manhart MH2 version, which had 630 horsepower. The modifications to the engine include unspecified strengthening to support up to 1,200 horsepower. While the specific changes to the engine components aren’t detailed, it likely includes enhancements to the bottom end (crankshaft, rods, pistons) and upgrades to the turbochargers, intercoolers, exhaust components, and more. Manhart also installs a custom tune for the car’s ECU to optimize performance.
To handle the increased power, Manhart has upgraded the clutch, transmission, and differential. For even more performance gains, they can add racing downpipes while removing other exhaust components, which may affect the car’s street-legal status, making these changes suitable mainly for exported models.
The package also includes a Manhart brake kit with 15.5-inch discs in the front and 15-inch discs in the rear, both featuring multi-piston calipers. An adjustable coilover suspension kit lowers the car slightly, and a Manhart body kit enhances its appearance. The body kit is similar to the one used for the previous MH2 and includes features like a carbon spoiler, side sills, and a prominent rear wing. The car’s exterior features a Manhart decal set with mint trim instead of the traditional black and gold.
