The aftermarket specialists at Manhart Racing have recently pulled the wraps off their latest creation, an upgrade program for the BMW M3 Convertible.
With the new generation of the BMW M3 Convertible getting ready to hit the market as the BMW M4 Cabrio, the outgoing model is being placed into the spotlights once again, this time by Manhart Racing, which is trying to prove that the powerful German vehicle still has what it takes. According to the tuning company, the so-called Manhart MH3 Cabrio has been fitted with an engine borrowed from the X6 M, with a new Akrapovic Evolution exhaust system and with some other features.
The result stands at 655 HP and 719 lb-ft of torque, which is the total output produced by the 4.4 liter twin turbo V8 engine, borrowed from the X6 M, which has replaced the standard 4.0 liter V8 from the M3. The cabrio can now reach a top speed of 198 mph. Besides the 235 HP power boost, the Manhart MH3 Cabrio was also fitted with a carbon fiber hood with GTR air intakes, diffuser and mirror caps, with an MHR braking system and with a fresh set of 20-inch MHR Concave One Ultralight forged alloy wheels. The images posted below will tell you the rest of the story. Manhart didn’t say anything about mass-producing these upgrades.
