Manhart squeezes 630 horses out of the BMW X3 M Competition
The tuner team over at Manhart has persuaded the BMW X3 M Competition to draw 20% more power from its twin-turbo, six-cylinder engine.
In its factory guise, the engine has 510 hp (380 kW) and 600 Nm (443 pound-feet) of torque. Once tweaked, it ascends to 630 hp (470 kW) and 785 Nm (580 lb-ft).
The complete kit is called MHX3 600 and also includes original 21-inch wheels, an exhaust system with ceramic finishers 100 mm (4 inches) wide, golden accents adorning the hood covers, bumpers and doors, and H&R springs that bring it 30 mm (1.2 inches) closer to the road.
The vanilla X3 M Competition makes the standard 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) sprint in 4.1 seconds. Manhart does not reveal how faster its version goes, but we would imagine it to be well under four seconds.
The tuner promises to make all the pricing public as soon as it launches a similar package for the X4 M Competition.
