Since 1986 MANHART has been upgrading and tuning already high-performance luxury vehicles, including a large number of models from BMW’s M Class lineup. And after already taking on the Bavarian brand’s M3, M4, X5 M Comp, and X7, MANHART has set its sights on BMW’s M2 Competition, reworking the smallest model in the M Range into what the German tuner is calling the “MH2 500.”
On top of a track-optimized chassis modified by H&R, the M2 Comp’s twin-turbocharged 3.0L S55 inline-six and its 410hp and 405ft-lbs of torque have been increased to 518hp and 516ft-lbs thanks to the addition of a modified MHtronik control unit and four 4” carbon fiber MANHART tailpipes. The exterior of the MH2 500 now sports a front spoiler lip, a diffuser, and a spoiler lip on the trunk lid at the rear — all of which are crafted from carbon fiber. Other additions also include MANHART’s20” Concave One light alloy rims, a bespoke set of decals, and a small AK Motion Fahrzeugstatus (vehicle status) display that now occupies where the left-hand central air vent once was. Restricted to only ten examples in total, the MH2 500 is available for order via the link below.
