Manhart introduced the 690-hp BMW M4 ConvertibleOctober 14, 2018
This is where the international automobile salon in Paris (France) comes to an end, during which there were many high-profile premieres – something that the brand new generation of the German BMW 3-Series sedan is worth. And among all these new products, concepts, quite … what is called the lost project of the tuning studio Manhart.
And the guys, by the way, presented a 690-strong version of the high-performance BMW M4 convertible. The new project of the German tuning workshop Manhart, which was called the MH4 700 LW, is a “charged” German BMW M4 in the cabriolet body. For this car was prepared a new aerodynamic body kit, and a “package” of increasing power.
But first things first. Let’s start with the technical changes that have occurred with a fairly powerful German convertible. After all the work is completed, the BMW M4 engine can reach a maximum power of 700 hp, and the “ceiling” of its torque is now 900 Nm.
According to representatives of the German company, additional power was obtained by upgrading the standard 6-cylinder 3.0-liter turbocharged engine – a more efficient turbocharger was installed, a new intercooler.
In addition, changes were made to the settings of the engine software. A 7-speed DCT transmission was also installed.
According to official data, the standard version of the BMW M4 convertible can accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in just 4.4 seconds. In this performance, the German high-performance car possesses 431 hp power and 550 Nm of torque. Unfortunately, so far there is no evidence of what dynamic characteristics the upgraded MH4 700 LW can boast, but there is no doubt that the latter will be faster than the original.
Now a few words about the new aerodynamic body kit, which was specially made for the MH4 700 LW. It is noteworthy that the front and rear bumper of the car were not changed – instead, the studio Manhart decided to equip the car with a front splitter and rear diffuser, a large rear spoiler and extended wheel arches.
Not so long ago, our automobile edition wrote about another creation of the tuning studio Manhart – the project was called MH5. This is a modified version of the BMW M5, which received a 713-horsepower engine.
