Manhart Racing isn’t the sort of company that doesn’t know its way around a BMW, or even one of the M Division’s products.
If the BMW M5 got a makeover, why wouldn’t one of the company’s more exciting products get a similar makeover with the equation.
Enter the Manhart MH1 S-Biturbo; a special conversion for the BMW 1 Series M Coupe. This is where things get a little more interesting.
Before we get to the new look let’s consider the amount of people who claim the original car doesn’t get enough of a power boost from BMW.
If the 1 Series would be faster than the M3, things would be seriously problematic. Manhart racing doesn’t have enough time to consider corporate dilemmas so they came up with the Stage 3 idea.
Fiddle is not the word we should use. Let’s say Manhart racing went on to monster the mods on the 3.0 liter turbocharged straight six cylinder.
That’s why the same engine now produces a total of 465 horsepower and 442 ft-lb torque. I wonder if Stage 3 is what they call the boss level.
You get a carbon fiber air box, sports exhaust system with downpipes and stainless steel mufflers. This is where they mixed in the enormous turbocharger.
Further more, the German tuner made sure to upgrade the whole of the cooling system so that all your hooning needs are met without any steam appearing in the equation.
The final bit of the equation was a carbon fiber body kit. This one is painted black and looks seriously evil even while it’s standing still.
