Following the display of the reworked version of the current BMW M5 by the
performance specialists of Manhart Racing from Wuppertal shortly after its
presentation, the BMW refining specialists have now uncovered a second
upgrade level of their MH5 S Biturbo – visually and technically more impressive
than ever before!
The big M5 will definitely not be a real lightweight racing car but the
performance specialists of Manhart Racing hold the views that: “Every single
gram shed in weight reduction counts!“ This is the reason that the in-house
aerodynamic components of the MH5 S Biturbo are made of ultra-light but high-
strength carbon. The catchy nose of the vehicle is decorated with an MHR
front spoiler, whose rear counterpart is found in an MHR rear diffuser and rear
spoiler. Moreover, the engine hood was manufactured with integrated GTR air
intake systems made of carbon. The entire bodywork was finally covered in a
full grey-matt metallic wrapping with decorative MHR stripes, which gives the
MH5 S Biturbo a touch of Stealth Fighter looks.
Turning in the wheel houses of the limousine are MHR08 Deep Concave by
ADV.1 wheels that are perfectly fitted in design as well as in their dimensions.
The three-part rims of sizes 9.5 x 21 inches (front) and 10.5 x 21 inches (rear)
are covered by high-performance tires of the dimensions 265/30ZR21 and
305/25ZR21. To ensure that all wheels constantly have the optimal road
contact, Manhart Racing installed the fully adjustable MHR by KW Clubsport
chassis frame with the company's own alignment. The chassis frame can be
adjusted separately in compression and rebound stages as well as with high-
performance racing springs. Moreover, Manhart Racing also constructed
performance-optimized racing drive-shaft support systems. By this means, the
BMW specialists are able to guarantee excellent handling, best performance,
highest level of agility and excellent cornering.
Manhart Racing also worked once again on the software and the periphery
of the 4.4 litre Biturbo driving mechanism in such a way that the datasheet
now has an impressive 646 horse power and a maximum torque of 773 Nm.
Following the removal of the electronic speed retarder, the MH5 S Biturbo runs
in this performance stage at up to 316 km/h.
The MHR Carbon Air Intake System does not only play its own part in boosting
performance but also gives the engine compartment an extremely enticing
outward appearance. The so-called blow-off noise that emerges while the
system is being rid of excess pressure from the turbo chargers is a source of
real pleasure for the driver himself during deceleration. Moreover, the MHR
sporty end-silencer made of high-grade steel with two 90 millimetre twin
tail pipes right and left respectively, gives the Biturbo-V8 a catchy and an
exceedingly impressive “voice“ controlling the complete dynamic portfolio from
mild piano up until the roaring fortissimo thanks to the valve control system.
Additionally, MHR downpipes can also be supplied optionally without catalytic
Moreover: The Manhart MH5 S Biturbo will also be on display at the Essen
Motor Show (from 01st to 09th December 2012). Manhart Racing will be in Hall
10, Platform 104.
