Meet the Manhart MH4 600 – a beastie BMW M4 Comp with 635bhp

The new Manhart MH4 600, which is based on the G82 generation BMW M4 Competition, has been subtly refined but gets some serious engine modifications.

Manhart has built quite a reputation for its visually extensive car conversions.

Take the MH3 600, MH3 GTR, or even the MH4 GTR II as examples – they’ve all been designed to attract maximum attention.

The truth is, though, not everyone wants an obnoxiously loud and extroverted appearance.

Thankfully, the German tuner caters for those with more subtle tastes, too.

The perfect example is its latest handy work – the new Manhart MH4 600, which is based on the G82 generation BMW M4 Competition.

It’s been subtly refined, and retains its standard Style 1000 M forged wheels, however, they’ve been given a matte gold bronze finish.


Size-wise, they’re 20-inch up front, while the rear wheels measure 21 inches, giving the car an aggressive forward-leaning stance.

Like the vast majority of its builds, the Manhart MH4 600 comes with the usual carbon fiber exterior components, sourced from the Manhart and M Performance parts ranges. 

But it’s the engine bay that’s been given the most attention.

The BMW M4 Competition is no slouch, its twin-turbo 3.0-liter S58 engine producing 473bhp and 406 lb-ft of torque.

In standard form, it’ll sprint from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 4.2 seconds.

Manhart steps in, though, and with its engine upgrades, boosts those figures to 635bhp and 575 lb-ft of torque.

No word on its new 0-100 km/h time, but it’ll supposedly accelerate from 0-200 km/h (0-124 mph) in just 10.5 seconds.

The Manhart MH4 600 also features a stainless steel exhaust system, with optional carbon-coated pipes available should you prefer them.

There’s a choice of downpipes available, too, either with 300-cell GESI catalytic converters or without.

Manhart hasn’t forgotten the suspension, which has been optimized with a choice of either its own coilover suspension or H&R springs.

When it comes to stopping power, the BMW carbon ceramic brake system, which is an optional extra, remains unchanged.

Sounds sweet, doesn’t it?

The only downside is all those parts for the Manhart MH4 600 come without Germany’s TÜV approval, so they’re only intended for export.
