We’re fans of MANHART here at SXdrv, the German aftermarket tuner has some of the best upgrades available for a whole host of modern cars. When MANHART decided to turn its attention to a car, the list of mods and changes ranges from mild bits and pieces to a complete makeover. Whenever you see a fully sorted MANHART build, you know that it’s going to cost a rather pretty penny and that makes sense because they do specialise in high-end cars and 4x4s. But for those that have a special car that they’ve spent all their money on and have a resulting limited budget, the things you see on the full projects can also be bought separately, so it’s possible to build a full MANHART special edition car in stages to save the bank account from looking like a car guy (or girl, them, they, whatever they identify as) as irresponsible as their friends already think they are. MANHART have worked on BMW M5s before and sold them under the MH5 nameplate, but what you see here is the most powerful version created to date thanks to using the F90 BMW M5 Competition as the base for the project. To match the power figures, the visuals for this new build package are also the most done on one of these cars to date. The result is the new MANHART MH5 900 Limited, and the full package, if bought directly from MANHART in Germany, is limited to just five iterations. With 476 kW and 750 Nm in OEM guise, you just know the MANHART MH5 900 will be quite something.

Under the hood, MANHART massaged the twin-turbocharged 4.4-litre powerplant in all the right places. They sorted the car with a turbo upgrade, a carbon intake, a Wagner Tuning intercooler, downpipes, an optimised stainless steel exhaust system with valve control and matt black 100 mm tailpipes, an OPF/GFP delete and a full ECU remap. The resulting power output rises to a very impressive 683 kW with torque up to a massive 1,240 Nm. For visuals, the MH5 900 Limited 01/05 receives a carbon fibre front spoiler, a kidney-shaped radiator grille surround, a two-part front apron insert, a pair of canards on the front apron, and air outlets of the carbon bonnet in CS style. There are also 2-piece side skirts and side inserts, a 2-piece roof spoiler and a 1-piece on the boot lid, a carbon fibre rear diffuser, carbon-fibre exterior mirror caps, copper MANHART decals and a set of 21-inch Concave One forged rims in satin black with copper accent stripes. For handling they added in MANHART coilover springs by KW Suspensions and the top KW Variant 4 suspension is an option. The OEM carbon-ceramic brakes remain unchanged because they’re up to the task of reigning in the car, even with the massive power bump. Inside there’s a full MANHART interior package that sees carbon fibre splashed everywhere, including seat shells for the back of the front seats. The headlining was replaced with soft Alcantara to match the brown leather upholstery, and the cherry on the top is a Sky Roof star arrangement crafted from hundreds of LEDs. Lastly, there’s a MANHART Dataview display.

Take a look at the YouTube video that details all the things we've pretty much already told you about this limited number 1 of 5 F90 BMW M5. In short, the car features upgrades in all areas, but most impressive is the more than 900 hp of available power extracted in a safe enough way to even afford the car a warranty - rich people like that: Manhart MH5 900 BMW M5 F90 2024 | thomas tyas
