Manhart is not on its first MHX kit. In fact, just recently it announced the MHX6 700 based on the BMW X6 M Competition. Today it announced the MHX5 700 - yes, as you guessed, it is based on the BMW X5 M Competition. Just like with the X6 M, the X5 M will receive a power boost, but also an updated look to both the exterior and the interior.

What changes were made under the hood?

The kit however is about more than just the extra 200 horsepower under the hood. For the exterior, Manhart is offering a body kit made out of carbon fiber. It includes a new hood with GTR air intakes and a new front spoiler, new side skirts and mirror caps, and for the rear a two-piece spoiler and a diffuser. The car is painted in the same black Manhart used us with combined with gold trim strips.

The car also rides on a new set of 22-inch satin black Concave One wheels with gold rim decoration and wrapped in high performance tires size 295/30ZR22. The new wheels are combined with a high-performance braking system and optimized suspension with H&R springs that lower the car’s ride.
