Based on the BMW M2 CS, the Manhart MH2 GTR is the little brother to the MH4 GTR and gets a whopping 592bhp from its 3.0-litre biturbo straight-six engine.
It’s pretty striking, the MH2 GTR, isn’t it? Donned in BMW M decals and nods to Manhart and various other brands, there’s no mistaking that this BMW M2 CS is no ordinary sports car. New features include a splitter, carbon fibre fenders, carbon fibre rear wing and new Concave One forged wheels by Manhart.
It’s under the bonnet where things get interesting, though, thanks to a new Manhart turbo kit, intercooler (by CSF), aluminium charge pipes, a carbon fibre intake and Manhart sports downpipes and stainless-steel exhaust. With a bit of ECU fettling, power is now at an incredible 592hp with 612lb ft of torque. In order to deal with the extra torque, the transmission has also received a Manhart makeover.
To match the performance and looks together, Manhart opted for a suspension upgrade from H&R that drops the ride height and increases cornering dynamics. Wrapped around those 20inch Manhart wheels are 255mm wide Michelin Cup 2 tyres at the front and 295mm wide at the rear.
Inside the changes continue with Recaro sports seats, a carbon fibre steering wheel from BMW M Performance and data display in placement of one of the air vents in the centre.
