The BMW X5 M Competition is not a slow SUV. It has a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 generating 617 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque combined with its xDrive AWD system that can sprint from 0-60 mph in just 3.8 seconds, and if you have got the optional M Driver's Package, top speed is 177 mph. This should be enough for any individual, but if Manhart-like tuners exist, then Porsche 911 Turbo S is not good enough for some. That applies to high-performance SUVs too, and the X5 M Comp is unsafe. The latest monster Manhart is MHX5 800.
The turbocharger is upgraded with an M trunk ECU tune and a bigger intercooler, Manhart's latest creation makes a whopping 812 hp and 797 lb-ft of torque.
The eight-speed ZF automatic has been upgraded to help manage the performance, while Wuppertal suspension improves handling by lowering the MHX5 800 by 1.2 inches. That is more power and torque than even a Dodge Demon, and it is all contained in an SUV's body. A valved stainless-steel exhaust amplifies the noise, but when you enter the car, the first thing you notice is the carbon fiber-clad steering wheel with Manhart's logo and more oversized shift paddles. There is a splash of gold in the cabin that helps tie in the black and aureate theme of the exterior.
A few upgrades include a new carbon front spoiler, rear diffuser with integrated fog light, two-pieces side skirts, and staggered exhaust tips. The mirror caps are carbon fiber, while 22-inch forged wheels give the car a more aggressive demeanor. The hood is the most extensive body modification. This vented hood also boasts exposed carbon fiber, but what brings it all home is the gold vinyl applied to parts of the vehicle, enhancing the visual size of intake grilles and the general body lines. Pricing is not yet out, but we doubt Manhart’s MH4 GTR is included on a trailer.
