Eats Asphalt

12 Jul

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.
