German preparation company Manhart Performance has just unveiled a modified version of the very limited BMW M4 DTM Champion Edition.
BMW presented the M4 DTM Champion Edition in 2016 to celebrate Marco Wittmann's victory in the DTM Championship. Only 200 units were built, but that didn't stop Manhart engineers from taking care of it. Not only does the MH4 GTR look more aggressive, it's also a lot more powerful.
Compared to the standard BMW M4, the DTM Champion Edition features a series of modifications to the 3.0-liter twin-turbo inline-six, including a new injection system that allows it to develop nearly 500 horsepower and 600 Nm of torque. That's enough for most BMW enthusiasts, but not Manhart customers. They always want more, both in terms of exclusivity and horses under the hood!
Always more !
Unsatisfied with these figures, Manhart reprogrammed the engine mapping and installed a new cooling system, aerodynamic carbon fiber appendages, new stainless steel tailpipes encased in a brand new diffuser … These modifications allow the MH4 GTR to display a total power of 700 hp and an insane torque of 980 Nm. The seven-speed dual-clutch transmission has also been modified to ensure it can cope with all the cavalry hiding under the hood.
Other changes include new 20-inch Manhart Concave One forged wheels. The tuner also outfitted its hardcore version of the M4 with a new front spoiler, a massive rear spoiler and a new carbon fiber diffuser.
Finally, the interior also receives some improvements such as a steering wheel coated with Alcantara and carbon fibers, Recaro bucket seats and a host of other carbon trim.
