Manhart Racing releases BMW M3 E92 Compressor
Manhart Racing, the German-based BMW powertrain king has released a stunning tuning program for the current BMW M3 E92. No less exclusive than their mind-blowing Manhart M3 Touring V10, the new program is able to charge your high-performance M3 with up to 655 horsepower.
The all-new Manhart BMW M3 program is divided in three stages. In the first power stage, the stock BMW V8 420 horsepower powerplant gets equipped with a small compressor and a supercharging pressure of 0.35 bar, which boosts the motor to 515 horsepower. The second power stage increases the supercharging pressure to 0.50 bar and the engine immediately tops an output figure of 585 horsepower. The most powerful stage – Power Stage III – packs the Bavarian athlete with a large compressor from ASA with supercharging pressure of 0.67 bar and a specially engineered exhaust unit made of TITANIUM, which boasts 70 millimetre pipe diameter and two 200 cell race catalytic convertors. With 655 horsepower and Vmax over 350 km/h, the Manhart Racing BMW M3 E92 Compressor covers the classic zero to 100 km/h sprint in 3.7 seconds flat.
For keeping the newly gained power under control, the Manhart speacialists are offering a Bilstein PSS10 threaded suspension, braking unit with 365mm brake discs and BMW M5 E60 floating callipers on the front axle and braking system with 345mm discs for the rear axle. A 20-inch classic BBS challenge alloys finished in black are wrapped in high-performance Continental tyres and ensure grandiose grip for all conditions.
Inside, the M3 cockpit is re-styled with a nice blend of sportiness and luxury. It renders full leather fittings in Alcantara/leather combination, superb sport seats with seat heating and exclusive performance steering wheel with LED display, which shows temperature, transverse acceleration and 1/4 mile times.
