Manhart adding a coat of black paint with contrasting gold stripes and a few more ponies under the hood. That’s exactly what we have here with the new Manhart SL 800 R.
Between the SL’s fenders you’ll still find a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 engine. In Manhart’s care, new turbochargers are added along with a new intercooler and carbon intake. We suspect there are a few other changes such as a new engine tune at play, but the aftermarket company isn’t keen to offer other details at this point. The result is 800 hp and over 738 pound-feet (1,000 Newton-meters) of torque, all going to the Manhart-specific rear wheels.
