Manhart Mh2 630 – BMW M2 Competition As A Powerful Track Toy

Slowly but surely the M2 of the second model generation is casting its shadow more and more clearly. The prototypes have been on the road for a long time and have of course already been in front of the lens of the photo hunters.

It is only a few months until the new smallest M is unveiled. But even the previous F87 is still an outstanding driving dynamic that enjoys great popularity in the tuning and performance scene alike. MANHART Performance have now extensively modified an M2 Competition and transformed it into a version of the MH2 630 optimised for track use.

The new model designation already indicates it unmistakably – the S55 biturbo in-line six-cylinder of the coupé has been given a significant power boost: thanks to the MANHART Turbo Performance Kit and a CSF intercooler, the engine has been strengthened from the factory 410 hp and 550 Nm to a remarkable 630 hp and 750 Nm.

In addition, the MH2 features a complete MANHART stainless steel exhaust system with valve control, which flows into four 90 mm carbon tailpipes at the rear. In addition, downpipes without catalytic converters and a link pipe with 300-cell GESI catalytic converters are installed.

To ensure that the dynamic coupé decelerates even more steadily, the brake system from the M4 GT4 with six-piston calipers on 380 mm discs are fitted to the front axle, while the original brakes have been retained at the rear.

Of course, a real track tool also needs corresponding suspension optimisations: The MH2 630 got a 3-way Clubsport coilover suspension from KW. In addition, aluminium rims in 19 inch with grippy 265/35 and 295/30 Michelin tyres were added.

Other new features include the front spoiler, side skirt attachments and the diffuser, which each come from the M Performance range and are made of carbon, a Schmiedmann aluminium front bonnet and a large rear wing from the M235i Racing. And, of course, the decal set with gold trim and lettering applied to the black bodywork is also not to be missed.

Last but not least, the interior also looks like a genuine racing car: the rear is empty, instead there is a full roll cage. This also serves to fasten the Schroth Motorsport harnesses with which the occupants strap themselves into their Recaro Sportster CS seats. Rounding out the package are carbon shift paddles, a carbon kit for the centre console, an Awron auxiliary display and MANHART floor mats.
