MANHART Carbon Hood
MANHART Performance use specifically developed carbon parts. The development always focuses on a design, which follows function. The MANHART carbon hood follows this path perfectly. Made of high quality carbon fiber the MANHART hood has got several advantages over a standard metal hood due to its material and design. Firstly we focused on weight savings when creating the MANHART carbon hood. Whilst a standard hood of a BMW M6 weighs about 12,5 kg, the MANHART hood only weighs 8,05 kg. This is a weight reduction of almost 4,5 kg with just one single body part.
Apart from the weight advantage the MANHART hood is specifically designed not only to look good, but also to improve the performance of the engine. With its GTR-style air vents which cover about one-fifth of the hood’s surface, the MANHART hood offers an enhanced circulation of air in the engine bay. Consequently at higher vehicle speeds, a stronger flow of air will ensure enhanced flow of the hot air exiting the engine bay. Especially for high performance engines this additional cooling is a very useful feature.
For many sports-car or supercar owners the look is almost as important as the performance. With this in mind the MANHART carbon hood was developed to upgrade the overall look of the vehicle. While designing the hood we focused on making the hood look stunning compared to a standard hood. The improved sporty and dynamic look is never too intrusive. Following this principle the MANHART carbon hood perfectly fits into the design language of MANHART Performance. Sporty an more dynamic than a standard car, but always elegant and sleek. This is the principle based on which the MANHART carbon hood is a great visual addition to any car.
MANHART MH8 800 – the fastest M8 Competition in the world!
The M8 Competition is undoubtedly one of the absolute spearheads in the M GmbH model range. With 625 hp, 750 Nm torque and a top speed of up to 305 km/h, the top-of-the-line BMW model is fascinatingly fast even in series production. But it can get even more extreme, as MANHART Performance has proven. The company from Wuppertal has been specialized in the optimizing of BMW vehicles for many years and by using its outstanding experience, the experts have now released the World’s fastest BMW M8 Competition: Raise the curtain for the MANHART MH8 800!
Following the conversion, the rapid sports coupe produces no less than 823 hp plus 1,050 Nm and combines ultimate exclusivity with absolutely outstanding sportiness. The MH8 800 needs only 2.6 seconds to sprint from a standing start to 100 km/h, which means a noticeable reduction compared to the 3.2 seconds of the series M8. Acceleration from 100 to 200 km/h takes just 5.7 seconds. The MANHART turbo kit comes with a MANHART intercooler and a revision of the software on the engine control unit. These are responsible for the significant increase in performance of the 4.4-liter biturbo V8 (S63).
Another new feature is the stainless steel rear silencer with a remote valve, which ends in four 100-mm tailpipes, optionally with carbon or ceramic-coated look. Rounding off the exhaust package are – without TÜV approval only for export – the OPF-delete replacement pipe, made of stainless steel and set of race downpipes, without catalytic converters. The MANHART Emulator Control Module (ECM) valve control and the MANHART ECM Deleter are available to match the exhaust hardware.
In order to be able to withstand the increased power of the engine without any problems, the transmission has also been upgraded. Height-adjustable coil springs from KW are responsible for lowering the MH8 800. They are height adjustable up to approximately 30 millimeters. In addition, the Coupé also has a special MANHART suspension set-up and the factory-standard carbon-ceramic brake system. Both can be individually configured upon request.
Visually, the MH8 800 also stands out from the standard M8 Competition: the front spoiler lip and inserts on the front apron make the face of the 8-Series even more dynamic and aggressive – perfect overtaking prestige is guaranteed here! The components are made of carbon, as is the rear spoiler lip and the diffuser insert. Finally, rounding the MH8 800 off perfectly are the decorative stripes in gold, which contrast against the black background. The same color combination is also shown on the MANHART Concave One alloy wheels in 9×21 and 10.5×21 inches with tires in 265/30 ZR21 and 305/25 ZR21. They combine a glossy black finish with a golden edge on the lightweight rim. Last but not least, MANHART has a carbon refinement package for the stock steering wheel and carbon shift paddles available to customize the interior.
All other facts as well as price and delivery information are available on our MANHART Performance website, in the new MANHART Performance online shop or directly from the MANHART Performance sales team. The MANHART MH8 800 impressively demonstrates its performance in this YouTube video from AutoTopNL, which can be viewed below:

MANHART Concave One Wheels
The MANHART Concave One aluminum rim is a real all-rounder in a single package. Carefully crafted with high quality materials, the Concave One obtains both quality and tremendous looks. In-house designed, it allows our development team to offer the best quality standards, which not only match our own but also those of our customers.
The Concave One wheel has several performance advantages due to the use of high quality aluminum. Especially when driving so-called low section tires the MANHART alloy rims help to increase ride comfort compared to steel rims. Aluminum is handling impacts much better and the Concave One is able to absorb especially short bumps and shocks much better than a traditional steel wheel set up.
Apart from better shock absorbing, the Concave One also has a better thermal conductivity than normal steel rims. The Concave One also helps to cool the brake system. Last but not least the low weight of the MANHART alloy rim supports an advanced power to weight ratio which is essential on sports-cars and supercars.
Besides several technical advantages we focused on a stunning design for the Concave One rim. Through its concave shape and a delicate two-spoke set up with six symmetrically arranged twin spokes the Concave One wheel set up always seems strikingly big and dynamic, but sleek and stylish at the same time.
The Concave One is available in Silk-Matte Black and Diamond Polished. In matte black the MANHART wheel is ideal for white or black cars. On white cars the Concave One has the potential to contrast the body colour and add a particular visual enhancement. On black cars it significantly supports the so-called “stealth look”.
In Diamond Polished, the Concave One looks good on almost any car no matter what the body colour is. Especially in connection to darker colors such as dark blue. The Concave Once is a great design upgrade due to its high sheen surface on the twin spokes. With its slight two-tone design and the anthracite rim well, the twin spokes silver shine is highlighted but still keeps an elegant appearance.
No matter if they are 19- up to 22-inch, whether SUV or sporty coupe, the Concave One is a unique eye-catcher on any sports-car or supercar! The rims are available via our MANHART Performance store.
