Most people don’t take a look at the 2013 BMW M6 and think “this car needs to be faster.” However, the mad tuners over at Manhart Racing have decided to do just that.
They are working on a program for the M6 called the MH6 S Biturbo. The program sets the tuner loose on the car working to take its performance to the moon.
After they finish with the car, it will put 700 horsepower to the pavement and an Earth-moving 664 pound-feet of torque. We believe that all this power should be enough to launch the MH6 from 0 to 60 mph in a scant 3.5 seconds. We also expect an Autobahn-dominating top speed of around 198 mph.
To accomplish the higher output a high-performance twin-turbo system replaces the stock system on the otherwise stock 4.4-liter V-8 engine. In order to keep the exhaust flowing freely, MAnhart installed a complete exhaust system, including a new catalytic converter and Manhart’s end-silencer to keep the exhaust sounding throaty, but not overbearing.
All the straight-line performance is great on a drag strip, but what happens when you decide to take it on a curvy road? Well, to keep the car handling well in the twist, the tuner fitted a complete coilover kit to the car.

The Front View
From the front, you get a carbon-fiber hood, as well as a carbon front spoiler. This gives the MH6 S Biturbo’s front a purposeful look and lets others know that this is no ordinary M6 passing them.
While both of these give the car a nice tuner look, they also help performance. The hood is louvered to help extract heat from the engine when driving it hard and the front spoiler helps create downforce to help give you the grip you need at high speed.
From the profile view, the side skirts get the carbon treatment, as do the side mirrors. To make sure people know what you’re driving when you pull up next to them, a black strip with MH6 S Biturbo written on it leaves no doubts.
The Rear End
More carbon fiber continues on the rear end. The trunk and rear diffuser are made from carbon fiber and the trunk includes special badging to further let people know what you are driving. The trunk features an integrated spoiler to provide more downforce and the rear diffuser cleans up air flowing under the car.
Full details about the wheels that are available have not yet been released. However, we know that they are forged alloys and will more than likely be 21 inches. Front 265/30ZR21 and rear 305/25ZR21 tires are likely to be used to keep the car glued to the road.
Manhart has only released renderings of the new car so far. They are promising to unveil the actual car in late summer of 2013 and we can’t wait to see the real thing.
Standard BMW M6
The base 2013 BMW M6 comes with 560 horsepower available from the twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V-8 engine. The engine is mated to a seven-speed automated-manual transmission and launches the car from 0 to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds. The M6’s top speed is limited to 155 mph.
The car comes standard with 19-inch forged allow wheels, heated seats, rain sensing wipers, navigation system and bi-xenon headlights. In U.S., the 2013 M6 starts at $108,350.

MH6 S Biturbo – Preview of the over 700 HP-strong Power Coupe
The high performance specialists of Manhart Racing from Wuppertal permit a preview of the coming MH6 S Biturbo Sport coupe on the basis of the new BMW M6 using two detailed Computer Renderings.
As was of course, to be expected, it is already easy to detect in these computer renderings that the MH6 S Biturbo will be fitted with a comprehensive carbon fiber exterior package comprising a front spoiler and an engine hood, side skirts and a rear diffuser as well as a trunk lid in CSL design.
On matters of engine optimization, the MH6 S Biturbo will be taking the features of its technically closely related sister limousine MH5 S Biturbo to the next level. Performance values beyond 700 HP and maximum torque in excess of 900 Newton meters should thus be expected. Performance boost will of course, also include a complete exhaust system including downpipes with sports catalysers and the company’s own end-silencer.
Manhart Racing will combine a coilover kit with forged alloy wheels for the perfect mechanical grip.
The presentation of the first Manhart MH6 S Biturbo is scheduled for the late summer of 2013.
