German tuner Manhart decided to start 2022 in style and it is offering a very cool upgrade kit for the BMW M8 Competition. It now only adds more than 200 horsepower to the final output, but it also completely transforms the look of the M8! This way, the BMW takes it to an all new level, becoming more powerful, more luxurious and even more exclusive!

What changes were made under the hood?

In base form, the BMW M8 Competition is powered by a 4.4-liter M TwinPower Turbo V-8 engine that delivers a total of 617 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque. But Manhart was able to add more than 200 horsepower, with just a "few" tricks.

These tricks include a performance kit combined with a turbo upgrade, an intercooler upgrade, a carbon air intake and the addition of a new stainless steel exhaust system that ends with four tailpipes, each 100 millimeters in diameter.

As a result the MH8 800 delivers a total of 823 horsepower and 790 pound-feet of torque.

There is no word on how these changes improved the car’s performance figures, but for sure it will be faster than the base M8 Competition. As a reminder, the sprint from 0 to 60 mph is done in 3 seconds, while top speed is 189 mph.

What other changes will we get?

Of course, a car with this amount of power needed a more aggressive look. So, Manhart added a carbon fiber body kit that includes: a bonnet with GTR air outlets, a front spoiler, side skirts and a rear diffuser.

The car is finished in a very cool-looking matt blue paint, which fits perfectly the black radiator grille.

The final touches of the exterior look are a new set of wheels, sized 21 inches and wrapped in 275/30ZR21 and 295/30ZR21 tires. They are of course combined with an upgraded suspension, with adjustable KW springs that will optimize driving dynamics.
