Old School

9 Sep

Old school Alpina treatment (though it had an M3 swap + a single turbo), and even rarer Hartge flavor



Things that make ya go hmmmmm

The E92 is a great car. Zero debate. TE37’s are a fantastic wheel choice. No question. But Rotora’s? JBT’s (cousin of Rotora)? Surely better stuff exists, no?



This guy should buy this car

Jon spotted this yesterday – peep the tires marked for left/right and the baby seat. At least some out there use a dual purpose car for 2 cool purposes

So you’ve got yourself a new M3 One of the most appealing sports coupes on the market today. It looks good, it sounds good, and owner stigma aside, it’s a pretty sweet daily driver or weekend toy. But it’s just not special enough. You go to a meet and you’re another M in the crowd. You need to zig where others zag. You need Manhart.

On the outside it’s demure. A clean execution of nice wheels and a lowered stance. But a monster lurks inside. A twin turbo V8 that puts down 550hp. Not enough? Try their latest package pumping out 700 hp. Top speed 208 mph. Fully sorted from nose to tail. Amazing car, made even more amazing.





Not for Public Consumption

They made a few for press ops, and some European car shows, but never made it to production

Weather was absolutely perfect. The way these guys run an event should be emulated throughout motorsports. One price for all, gets you all the races for the day, all access to the pits, etc.

A customer recently drove down from CT to pick up some Bilstein coilovers for his GC8 Impreza, and took his daily driver with him. This is the first of the truly cool M5’s IMHO. Timeless body design. This one is even more unique in that it’s a real Euro spec model, with the larger 3.8 liter engine, and other special features.
