Building the fastest and strongest BMW M2 on German roads and probably even the whole world, was the vision that led us to building the MH2 630. Based on the BMW M2 F87, the M2 engine was taken out and replaced by the much stronger S55 Biturbo engine from the M4. The effect was what any car fan calls a better power to weight ratio.
MANHART is well known since 1986 for processing great engine swaps. Whether an E30 with a V8 or a BMW Z4 with the E60 V10, building a big engine into a smaller car is the first step to create something very powerful and very unique. Since an engine transplantation is a huge project far more complicated than a simple ECU tune, the M2 transmission was replaced by the M4 F82 7-speed DCT gearbox to handle the power.
Few more things had to be done to generate the aimed goal of 630 HP and 750 Nm. First up is the MANHART turbo upgrade to generate more boost pressure for the MH2. A MANHART intercooler was fitted to the MH2 as well as a new carbon air intake so the bigger turbos have less trouble breathing. Rounded up with a MHtronik powerbox for advanced engine control software, the MANHART MH2 630 boosts out a stunning 630HP and 750Nm. Those figures are proper supercar territory.
The MH2 must not be understated. Furthermore, it received a MANHART sport muffler made from stainless steel. The MH2s exhaust tips can be ordered either in carbon or ceramic coated. For the export market, we offer catless downpipes which not only lead to more power by reducing dynamic pressure in the exhaust system but also let the MH2 bang and burst like hell.
The MH2 is not supposed to be fast in the straight line only. To generate maximum cornering speed, the MH2 was fitted with a KW Variant 3 Clubsport suspension system. With this the MH2 is much lower than the base M2 and takes corners like a proper race car. A carbon strut brace increases the level of body stiffness once more.
For extraordinary braking distance, the MH2 has got a 6-piston brake system on the front axle as well as a 4-piston brake system on the rear. The carbon ceramic brakes where specifically developed to fit the MH2’s need for maximum brake power on track days.
The MH2 exterior package offers a high level of customization. Depending on the customer, the car can be ordered in a “Track Edition” spec with a massive carbon rear wing for maximum downforce and optional winglets on the front. The carbon front splitter can be either ordered adjustable or static. The MH2 exterior package also includes a carbon rear diffuser and side wings from M Performance. Depending on the spec a M Performance carbon trunk lid spoiler lip can be ordered to replace the carbon rear wing. The MH2 630 comes with 19 inch MANHART Concave One alloy wheels either in silk-matte black or diamond polished. They give the car a more dynamic look while also reducing weight.
The MH2 interior package offers as much individual styling as the exterior. The car can be ordered with a custom MANHART Leather/Alcantara interior and gold stitching on the A.-B,-C pillar, steering wheel, dashboard and roof liner. Also available are Recaro Sportster CS sport seats and various M Performance carbon interior panels. Being a high performance car the package also includes the additional Awron display to bring up all important facts about the current engine situation such as boost pressure, horsepower, and temperatures.
The MH2 is far ahead of the standard M2 in terms of performance and looks. Depending on the configuration, the MH2 can be a classic sleeper or a full on track car with menacing looks. The 630 HP will hypnotize drivers and co-drivers no matter what it looks from the outside!
