MH4 GTR II: Limited M4 special model à la MANHART – 702 hp and 880 Nm in the CSL

GTR – this combination of letters is a promising abbreviation for many motorsport and tuning fans, as it stands for Gran Turismo Racing. MANHART has also often used it to designate particularly spectacular creations. Now the MH4 GTR II is making its debut. After the first top sports car with this designation was based on the first M4 of the F82 series, the new model is now of course based on the G82. In the case of the vehicle shown in the pictures, this is not just any M4, but a copy of the special CSL model limited to 1,000 units.

While the regular M4 Competition, which by the way can also serve as the basis for the MH4 GTR II, already comes with 510 hp and 650 Nm, the CSL is already a little better off ex works with 550 hp. Thanks to the proven in-house MHtronik auxiliary control unit, MANHART pushes the three-litre, biturbo-charged S58 inline six to a whopping 702 hp and 880 Nm. Added to this is a MANHART stainless steel exhaust system opening into four 110 mm tailpipes (with carbon coating or ceramic-coated). This is connected to the unit either via MANHART downpipes Race without catalytic converters or MANHART downpipes Sport with 300-cell GESI catalytic converters. However, due to the lack of TÜV approval, both variants are intended exclusively for export, as are the MANHART OPF Delete replacement pipes with 200-cell HJS catalytic converters and the MANHART OPF/GPF Deleter. Although not implemented in the case of the vehicle shown, MANHART offers individual upgrades to the brake system on request to match the increased power.

Visually, the G82-based MH4 GTR also features various refinements – starting with the lowering, which is thanks to MANHART suspension optimization including height-adjustable MANHART coil springs by H&R. Last but not least, it also guarantees that the new Forged+ 1 by Yido Performance forged alloy wheels are perfectly aligned under the fenders. The wheels measure 10×20 inches with 275/30 tires at the front and 11×20 inches with 295/30 tires at the rear. The rim colour can be individually configured on request, in this case Matte Black was chosen along with one orange-red accented double spoke each – perfectly matching the styling of the body. Finally, this features a black paint finish together with the typical MANHART decorative trim, which in this case is orange-red. These coloured trim stripes also accentuate various of the components of the 18-piece MANHART carbon body kit: it includes a hood with GTR air intakes, a spoiler and side aero flicks for the front, fender side louvers, side skirts, twopiece rear side louvers, a diffuser, a two-piece rear skirt add-on and a three-piece rear spoiler.

The interior is refined by MANHART floor mats and SCHROTH 4-point racing harnesses, whose rear attachment points are formed by a Clubsport roll bar. Last but not least, the MH4 GTR II comes with a carbon fibre motorsport helmet for high-speed racing.
