Manhart BMW Z4 M40i Roadster looks very brutalOctober 3, 2019
The guys from the Manhart tuning studio presented a modernization project for the Bavarian BMW Z4 roadster in the powerful version of the M40i. The car received a 440-horsepower engine, as well as several very interesting chips.
In May of this year, the Manhart tuning studio, which is known for its rather extravagant projects, published the first renderings that show the highly modernized BMW Z4 M40i. At that time he was still in development, but now, the machine is ready and the foreign blogger Shmee150 has already managed to do a fairly detailed review on it.
As you probably remember, the version of the car from Manhart is called MHZ4 440, where 440 denotes the rated power of the 3.0-liter B58 twin-turbine engine – such high power was made possible thanks to a change in software and hardware. “Combined with one of the craziest exhaust systems, the roadster is a very powerful car,” says the blogger.
And the exhaust sound he makes is just … well, funny in the best sense of the word. But if you activate Sport Plus mode, after some time, until the valves work, you will get a loud and brutal note.
This Manhart project is one of the first to be equipped with an Emulator control module (in-house development). This is the company’s answer to questions from customers who want to upgrade the exhaust system of their new BMW models without fear of new gas particulate filters that can cause a lot of problems.
The same device can also disable the start-stop system of the car, as well as simulate the sound of exhaust coming from the speakers of the audio system. The price of the module for the Bavarian Z4 roadster is 399 euros.
