It was only a matter of time before the tuning companies started work on the fantastic new BMW M3 Competition. The crazy looks and 510hp turbocharged powertrain meant it was ripe for some fettling.
And boy has Manhart stepped up to the mark – with this tuned monster, the MH3-600.
Now you’d think, looking at that name, that it’s easy to decipher – ManHart, M3 based, 600hp. But you’d be wrong as their MHTronik Powerbox takes the 3.0 litre twin turbo S58 straight-six engine up to a staggering 635hp and 780Nm. That’s the same as the M5 CS in an M3! Performance is improved as expected, but the work doesn’t stop there.
Externally the MH3-600 gets a complete carbon fibre aero kit including a carbon diffuser, front spoiler, rear spoiler, side skirts and aero canards, and a stunning decal set that means you could replicate the amazing black/gold colour scheme of the demo car in their images.
The other reason it looks so good is that it sits on Manhart Concave One 21-inch alloy wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tyres and 22mm spacers to fill the wide arches. But even those impressive wheels wouldn’t look good with a big arch gap, so there’s a KW Manhart Variant 4 Suspension kit that lowers and tightens up the handling.
And what would a 635hp beast like this be without a roar? So Manhart fits a full cat-back stainless steel exhaust system with 4x100mm carbon fibre tips. And trust us, it sounds incredible.
This is the M3, turned up to 11. What a machine!

As taxi driver Aamer Mahmood arrived at Stratstone dealership to pick up his last customer, nothing looked out of the ordinary. What he didn’t know is that BOTB presenter Christian had sneakily pre-booked Aamer!
Delivery driver Tate was speechless when he answered the door to BOTB presenter Christian – and who could blame him? The Essex local had just won a BMW X5 xDrive 30d M-Sport worth £72,190) and £30,000 cash in this week’s Dream Car Competition!
BMW-fanatic Matthew could barely contain himself this morning when he received a surprise call from BOTB presenter Christian. “Things are about to get a bit better, aren’t they?” he asked nervously.
