D The Bavarians are sending the new BMW M8 in the hot competition version into the race with 625 hp. In the model hierarchy below is the BMW M850i, which has the same 4.4-liter V8 base engine, but in a specification that is around 100 hp weaker. This is exactly where tuner Manhart comes in and ensures compensation, at least almost.
An additional control unit for the standard engine control raises the N63 eight-cylinder from 530 PS and 750 Nm to 621 PS and 890 Nm and thus almost on par with it in terms of performance the sharp S63 eight-cylinder from the M model. In terms of torque, the Manhart interpretation clearly surpasses the M8 series, because it only offers 750 Nm.
Subtle changes in appearance
On the chassis side, Manhart helps the 8 series with 30 millimeter shorter springs. Combined with in-house Concave One alloy wheels, which have the dimensions 9x21 inches at the front and even 10.5x21 inches at the rear, the result is a bold look. Incidentally, the built-in tire sizes are 255/30 at the front and 295/25 at the rear.
The Manhart look is rounded off by a front apron attachment, a rear spoiler lip and a rear diffuser made of clear-coated carbon fiber and subtle gold trim on the black lacquer dress .
