Motorists of the German workshop Manhart modernized the previous generation BMW 1-Series hatchback version of the M140i xDrive. By changing the engine software and replacing the exhaust system, the specialists managed to increase the return from 340 horsepower (500 Nm of torque) to 429 horsepower and 644 Nm of torque.
Manhart experts called their creation MH1 400. Externally upgraded hatchback can be recognized by the front splitter and rear diffuser made of carbon fiber, lowered KW suspension, improved front brakes with 6-piston calipers and 19-inch concave black matte discs.
Also noteworthy is the custom exhaust with a ceramic coating, nozzles with a diameter of 90 millimeters and engraved Manhart: with a non-standard muffler, BMW sounds louder. The visual attractiveness of the interior of the “charged” version is ensured by carbon fiber pads on the steering wheel, gearbox selector and parking brake lever.
Motorists Manhart took care of an additional monochrome screen, which displays information about the condition of the forced engine, boost pressure, overloads, power and torque values.
The benchmark for tuning workshops is the record 421-horsepower (500 Nm of torque) hot hatch Mercedes-AMG A 45 S, however, under the hood of the Stuttgart model, the turbocharger is 2.0-liter, while the BMW M140i from Manhart drives a three-liter in-line turbo engine.
Atelier Manhart does not declare the acceleration dynamics of the modernized hatchback and traditionally does not disclose the price of the performance enhancement kit. Probably the next object for tuning will be the top version of the M135i xDrive of the new BMW 1-Series, which means that minders will have to deal with a two-liter “turbo four”.
