Lately, I wrote quite a lot about SUVs. And, honestly, I can’t say I’m in love with this kind of vehicle. I’d rather prefer a fast sedan than a powerful SUV. However, I must admit that the modified crossovers are spectacular.
Especially the tuned ones, since 2 tones accelerating to 100 km/h in under 5 seconds can be quite a show. It’s the case here. BMW X5 M V8 it’s a terrifying, fast SUV, no doubt about it! It sprints to 100 km/h in 4.2 seconds, and it reaches 250 km/h. That’s not a novelty for us, but it’s always good to remember.
The german tuner Manhart didn’t agree that those numbers are terrifying, so it made some changes, managing to squeeze 125 more horses and 150 Nm more. Now, the 700 hp and 900 Nm X5 can do things of which only real sports cars were capable of. But we already wrote about them here.
Of course, there is always room for more. Manhart can give you the supreme SUV, in form of an 800 hp and 1000 Nm of torque beast. Yes, you read well, but you’ll have to pull out of your wallet 15.111 € to have these values under the pedal.
So, what’s new with the monster? The news is that a video with Manhart MHX5 700 just emerged in the web. It shows the beast from all its angles, in a professional manner. However, it’s not on my taste. I would rather prefer more action and a little engine noise. Sorry, lots of engine noise. But it’s ok even so, as the car’s looks can complete the missing parts… Enjoy the 700 hp Manhart MHX5 700 “au ralenti”!
