The MH8 5.0 V8 coupe received the S62 engine from the E39 series M5, a six-speed manual transmission, a stainless steel exhaust manifold, a suspension with Bilstein and H&R components, and new exterior styling. The circulation of the two-door will be only five copies. Price – 149 thousand euros, or 14.7 million rubles. For comparison: a BMW 850i with a standard V12 can be bought for 30 thousand – three million rubles.

Atelier Manhart presented the MH8 5.0 V8 coupe, based on the BMW 850i E31 series. The special feature of the car is the engine. From the factory there is a V12 5.0 with 300 horsepower and 450 Nm of torque. But Manhart decided that the V8 S62 from the M5 in the E39 body was more suitable for the two-door. It is more powerful (420 horsepower after modifications) and “meaner” than the V12, so it radically changes the character of the car. Only a six-speed gearbox is offered in tandem with the new engine.

Of course, the changes don’t end there. The coupe is repainted, equipped with bumper skirts from the 850 CSi, BMW M side mirrors and a rear spoiler trim. The standard exhaust line is replaced with our own stainless steel one. Bilstein B6 shock absorbers and shortened H&R springs are installed, as well as four-piston brake calipers complete with 340 mm discs on the front axle. The MH8 5.0 V8 has 20-inch wheels with Continental Sport Contact 7 tires. The interior is upholstered in leather and Alcantara. And only five of these cars will be produced.

Manhart has been tuning old models since last year. They even launched the Manhart Classics program for this cause. Her firstborn was the Integrale 400 hatchback based on the Lancia Delta HF Integrale 16V. Then the MH3 3.5 Turbo coupe was introduced, based on the E30 generation BMW M3. And in the fall of 2023, the Manhart Alpina 2002 tii debuted – an improved version of the BMW 2002 tii.
