Manhart Racing Gets Crazy with the F06/F12/F13 BMW M6 Lineup

Manhart Racing M6

More power and style for the Ms.

The new BMW M6 range offers drivers performance in virtually any shape or size. Four doors? There’s the F06 M6 Gran Coupe. Convertible? There’s the F12 M6 Convertible. Sport? The F13 M6 Coupe is your choice. Wagon? Well, you’re out of luck there and can look elsewhere in the BMW model lineup; you’re not welcome here. Now, Manhart Racing is giving you even more options for the three M6 models with a new four stage performance program with different wheel and suspension choices.

The F06/F12/F13 BMW M6 variants can all benefit from the four Manhart Racing engine performance upgrades for the twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V-8. Stage One starts things out with an ECU tune that ups power all the way to 620 horsepower and 531 lb-ft. of torque. Stage Two includes the ECU tune and a new pair of downpipes that reduce backpressure for a total of 640 horsepower and 560 lb-ft. of torque. In Stage Three, engineers install the ECU tune and downpipes as well as a Gruppe M carbon fiber air intake system and in-house Sport muffler to create 670 horsepower and 583 lb-ft. of torque. The fourth and final stage includes all the aforementioned upgrades along with a Manhart Racing performance box to produce a whopping 700 horsepower and 634 lb-ft. of torque.

Along with the four stages of performance for the BMW M6 range, Manhart Racing also offers two stainless steel exhaust options. The valve-controlled exhaust uses a set of valves that automatically open above 2,000 RPM or can remain opened with the M-key is activated. The Racing exhaust does not utilize any valves and has a wide-open voice throughout the entire rev range. Both exhausts can be ordered in 90- or 100 mm diameters and wear a polished tailpipe finish with MHR badges.

Customers also have options when it comes to the chassis from Manhart Racing. The BMW F06/F12/F13 M6s can be fitted with either a traditional coilover suspension or coilover springs. The coilover springs retains the Electronic Damping Control (EDC) and, like the traditional coilovers, help to sharpen up handling and lower the center of gravity. Manhart Racing can also install new ADV.1 MHR08 three-piece, track-spec wheels in a 9.5 x 21 and 10.5 x 21 front and rear fitment with black faces and brushed stainless steel lips.

Manhart Racing allows customers with the three BMW M6 variants to create their own, custom-tailored performance package with power upwards of 600 ponies. All of the upgrades are currently available as individual options or an entire kit.
