While we wait with bated breath for BMW to release a hardcore M2 CS or CSL, a selection of tuning companies have worked their magic on the German sports car.
One of the most impressive upgrade kits for the M2 comes courtesy of Manhart and is dubbed the MH630. As the name suggests, the vehicle’s 3.0-liter inline-six engine has been upgraded from 370 hp to 630 PS (621 hp) and 750 Nm (553 lb-ft of torque).
In a bid to show that the heavily-modified M2 is the real deal, Manhart recently took to the Nurburgring in the car and completed a flying lap when the circuit was open to the public.
Due to all the traffic on the track, the MH630’s Bridge to Gantry time of 7:35 isn’t representative of what the car is capable of. Despite that, the clip does highlight the BMW’s addictive engine note and its composure in long, high-speed corners.
