Despite what we might think about the new BMW M3 and M4’s looks, we can’t deny that behind those sizable nostrils is a performance car that the aftermarket is bound to embrace.
Since the G80 M3 and the G84 M4 haven’t been on the market for very long, there isn’t a whole lot available from third parties yet. Though German tuners have definitely been working on some things behind the scenes.
Back in October 2020, we all got a peek at some early concept renderings of giant grill-canceling body kits by Prior Design that they may or may not produce.
Today, we’re taking a look at what MANHART has in store for the BMW M3 and M4. Spoiler alert, they’re planning more than just exterior modifications.
The MH3 600 and MH4 600 tuning packages for the G80 M3 and G84 M4 respectively promise to add a significant power boost in addition to some subtle styling additions.
MANHART plans to improve power output by combining a “MHtronik Powerbox” (ECU upgrade) and a custom cat-back exhaust. On the competition variants of the M3 and M4 should see horsepower increase to 620 while the base BMW M3 and M4 will see their horses bumped up to 590.
Increasing power on a brand new and likely very complicated German sports car is admirable but MANHART isn’t stopping there. They will also reduce the ride height with H&R lowering springs.
A full aero package including carbon fiber hood, front lip spoiler, side skirts, rear deck lid spoiler, and rear diffuser are all there to spruce up the exterior and shave a few pounds off the curb weight.
Both packages also come with massive 21 inch Concave One forged wheels. Those rollers should hopefully be a few pounds lighter than the stock wheels.
Finally, for those who drink in attention like so much Red Bull, a gold decal package is available as an option.
If all this black and gold is speaking to you, MANHART plans to have this package available sometime this year but there’s no hard release date or price yet. It’s also unclear if the package will be available for U.S. customers to purchase or if it will only be sold exclusively in Europe.
