With the M5, BMW has undoubtedly built one of the fastest and most dynamic high-performance sedans
of the luxury class in its range – and this applies not only to the lightweight special model – the M5 CS –
presented at the beginning of 2021, but also to all variants of the current model generaton F90: at least
600 hp ensure breathtaking Performance, acceleraton to 100 km/h in less than 3.5 seconds and a top
speed of up to 305 km/h. Signifcant increases are of course stll possible, as the BMW specialists at
MANHART Performance prove. They saw a whole lot of unused potental in the M5 and have made it their
business to bring it to light in an expert manner: The result is the MH5 800, which has now been unveiled
in a partcularly sensatonal version.
The additon to the name 800 is no coincidence, but, as usual at MANHART, the name gives a clear
indicaton of the performance: The 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 (S63) performance level was increased to a
whopping 815 hp, the torque increased from a maximum of 750 Nm from factory now being up to 1,050
Nm. This was achieved with the help of a MANHART turbo performance kit, supplemented by an
associated MANHART intercooler and a MANHART carbon intake. There is also a MANHART ECU
remapping. This is rounded of by a complete MANHART exhaust system. The setup starts at the outlet of
the Turbos and consists of “Race” downpipes without catalytc converters, stainless steel OPF-delete
replacement pipes, a stainless steel rear silencer with valve control and four optonal carbon-coated or
ceramic-coated tail pipes. The downpipes and the OPF replacement pipe, like the MANHART-OPF/GPFdeleter, do not have TÜV approval and are therefore only intended for export. In additon, the M5’s 8speed automatc transmission received a MANHART transmission upgrade.
In terms of appearance, MANHART also implemented a number of customizatons: A set of H&R lowering
springs not only lowered the body, but also optmized driving dynamics. In additon, the MH5 800 stands
on a set of the well-known and proven MANHART Concave One light alloy wheels in mat black and size
9×21 front and 10.5×21 inches at the rear. The associated tres measure 265/30ZR21 and 305/25ZR21. The
components of the carbon body kit ofer additonal accents to the package – a MANHART front spoiler, a
MANHART difuser and a MANHART rear spoiler lip. While the MANHART vehicles are usually characterized
by a decoratve stcker in gold or silver, the MH5 800 appears extraordinarily extravagant in this case: It has
been given an efect flm in mat red metallic including a MANHART decoratve set in black.
Last but not least, the interior was refned with a sky roof headliner composed of numerous small LEDs
installed into the roof and a carbon upgrade in the form of decoratve elements and shif paddles on the
