The Manhart-Team can look back to 30 years of experience in dealing with the optimization of BMW vehicles in which a unique wealth of know-how has been acquired. Manhart has always turned its attention to the refinement of vehicles from the BMW M-GmbH. The optimization of the power to weight ratio through technology swaps and engine transplants has become the trademark of the company. The engineers from Manhart Performance have equipped vehicles like the E30, E46 or E90 M3 with engines intended for much bigger models such as the 5.0L V10 from the M5 E60. Of course each transplanted engine undergoes a thorough performance upgrade and the chassis are equipped with bigger brakes, suspension and exhaust systems.
The quality of work that the engineers from Manhart Performance provide is of such a high standard that even BMW professionals only recognize at the second look that a completely different engine has taken the place of the original one. Also, the initial diagnostic capability of each vehicle remains. Of course besides engine transplants and comprehensive modifications Manhart also offers performance kits for non-M BMW models and Diesel-engined vehicles. Another Manhart Racing core competence is the development, production and distribution of weight-optimized performance products.
