This Manhart-Tuned M2 Outputs 715hp

The tuner calls it the MH2 GTR II.

German tuner Manhart Performance is back with its second iteration of the new-gen BMW M2 (G87). The new one is more powerful, wears a unique paint job and is called the MH2 GTR II. It’s a 1-of-1 project. The spruced-up coupe also boasts a customised interior, lowered suspension, and a bunch of carbon elements, upping the sporty quotient further.

In standard form, the BMW M2 has 460hp/550Nm. The Manhart MH2 560 unveiled a few weeks ago took that up to 560hp/650Nm. However, the MH2 GTR II packs 715hp/850Nm, enough to accelerate from 100kmph to 200kmph in 5.76 seconds. The increase in peak output was achieved through an ECU remap and a carbon intake for the 3.0-litre twin-turbo engine. Manhart offers multiple options for the exhaust system. Those seeking a TÜV-compliant setup can go with the Manhart sport downpipes with HJS catalysts, a stainless steel exhaust system with valve control and four matte black 100mm tailpipes. Similarly, a different setup can be ordered for markets where TÜV compliance isn’t required.

The braking system remains in standard form, besides the body-coloured callipers. The magenta paintwork is striking, to say the least. The champagne-coloured decals and wheels, which span 20 inches in diameter at the front and 21 inches at the rear, add to the drama. The forged rims are accompanied by 285/30 and 305/25 section tyres at the front and rear, respectively. Manhart has also installed Variant 4 coilover suspension by KW Suspensions. That allows for a lowered ride height.

The Manhart MH2 GTR II also comes packed with various additional carbon elements. The list includes a kidney grille, a hood attachment, front bumper inserts, a front spoiler, a rear spoiler lip and side skirts. A large rear wing and ORVM caps have been roped in from BMW’s M Performance Parts catalogue.

Indoors, the rear seats have been ditched in favour of a champagne-coloured roll cage. The front passengers get Manhart Schroth harnesses with belt tensioners. Tuner’s branded floor mats round off the cabin upgrades.

The Manhart MH2 GTR II will turn heads wherever it goes. Do you agree?
