2021 BMW X6 M Competition By Manhart Performance

Manhart has given the X6 M a generous dose of forged carbon fiber along with new wheels, exhaust system, and a power boost

German-tuner Manhart Performance has laid its hands on the BMW X6 M Competition and given it a rather radical and unique twist. The company has dropped oodles of forged carbon fiber on it inside and out. It even comes with new wheels, an exhaust system, and a tuned suspension setup. Not to mention, Manhart has also given a power boost to further distinguish it from the standard X6 M. The price is not revealed, but the MHX6 700 WB isn’t going to be cheap by any means.

Manhart Performance has come up with a forged carbon-fiber package for the BMW X6 M Competition called the MHX6 700 WB

Manhart has wrapped the SUV in ‘Matte Charcoal Metallic’. The forged carbon fiber treatment on the SUV, which looks like granite, is the highlight of the exterior. It is bound to draw polarizing opinions since it just doesn’t gel well. Manhart has equipped a 24-piece forged carbon widebody kit for the X6 M Competition. The forged carbon kit includes:

  • Hood with GTR Air Vents
  • Front Grille and Spoiler
  • Mirror Caps
  • Wheel Arches
  • Side Skirts
  • Rear Spoiler and Diffuser
  • Rear Side Blades and Bumper Add-on

The tuner has plastered the entire SUV with a ‘Matte Charcoal Metallic’ wrap and some decals

The Manhart MHX6 700 rides on 22-inch Manhart Concave wheels finished in silk matte black shade. They come wrapped in 295/30 section tires at the front and 315/30 section tires at the rear. You can choose to have a different color for the wheels if the silk matte black finish doesn’t float your boat. Apart from all this, Manhart also offered a decal set and 100mm quad-tailpipes that can be had with either carbon or ceramic coating.

What’s Different On The Inside?

The forged carbon fiber treatment continues on the inside as well. There are two-piece seat covers, side seat covers, and forged carbon fiber dipped paddle shifters and steering wheel spokes. Manhart floor mats are also thrown into the mix.

How Much Power Does The Manhart X6M Make?

The 4.4-liter, twin-turbo V-8 is also tuned. It now makes 730 HP and 664 lb-ft of torque. This is 130 HP and 111 lb-ft of torque more than the stock X6 M Competition

The SUV is powered by a 4.4-liter, twin-turbo V-8 mill. Power is sent to all the wheels via the same eight-speed automatic gearbox.

In the stock form, it makes 600 horses at 6,000 rpm and 553 pound-feet of twist between 1,800 and 5,860 rpm. Manhart has put it on steroids and it now dishes out 730 ponies and 664 pound-feet of torque!

This is done either via an MHTronic Powerbox or ECU Remapping.

Manhart has also fiddled with the suspension setup and exhaust system. It now rides 30 mm lower and features 100mm quad tailpipes

Manhart has also swapped the stock exhaust system with a system of its own. This is stainless steel setup with valve control. It includes downpipes race without catalytic converters and OPF delete pipes. These are only for export models, though. As for the suspension setup, H&R-sourced lowering springs are installed that reduce the ride height by 30 mm (1.2 inches). The aftermarket company has also tuned the suspension.
