Manhart Racing have turned the dial up on plenty of cars in their day and BMW’s models were almost always at the front of such ideas.
As far as our memory serves us, the E71 BMW X6 hasn’t been their favorite toy to play around with. In preparation for the Essen Motor Show they worked over the unusual X6.
Since the show’s popularity has wildly expanded over the recent years, this may not be a good way round to go and unveil your tweak on the SAC.
After all, it’s the place where other tuning companies from Germany or the world all over will showcase some incredibly high performing versions of the M powered X6.
You wouldn’t want to compete against that. To some degree, Manhart Racing are on the same page with that decision. They didn’t go alongside predictable lines.
They did not opt for a higher powered X6M. They did not fit sports suspension that’s basically rock solid and nor did they fit a bulging body kit.
Instead, they completely trolled those expecting a million horsepower X6M as they allied with the Germans from Wuppertal to creat the Dirt Edition.
Once you hear the name the appearance becomes less surprising. The car itself, the E71 X6 M remains standard, apart from the wheel setup.
Off-road tires and wheels go on, as do some extended mud guards. Just to keep the trolling effect going, a new vinyl wrap goes on.
It now genuinely looks like some of the toys I had as a kid since it has the US Army symbol on it.
