Final official numbers have been released on the Manhart Manhart Racing MH5 S Biturbo F10 M5 and it comes in at an impressive 646 HP (475 kW) and 570 lb-ft (773 Nm) torque [a +86hp / +68 lb-ft gain over stock] . Top speed is now 196 mph (316 km/h).

All this power is generated from its ECU software tune, MHR carbon fiber air intake system, downpipes (can be ordered with catalytic converters) and sports exhaust system with 90mm tail pipes (video below).

This particular MH5 S M5 is wrapped in matte grey vinyl and adorned with a carbon fiber body kit which includes a front spoiler lip, GTR vented hood, rear diffuser and trunk spoiler.

The IND F10 M5 engine bay gets a carbon fiber makeover with the GruppeM Ram Air Intake System. Not only does it look the part, but in previous tests by Studie Japan, this carbon fiber air intake system recorded peak gains of +15 HP and +30 lb-ft torque over stock.

On the GruppeM intake for the BMW F10 M5, the factory ductwork and airboxes are replaced with heat-shielding carbon fiber with enhanced inlets to capture the maximum amount of air. Lower intake air temperatures carry higher concentrations of oxygen, allowing for more energetic explosions and producing more horsepower and torque. Of course, reliability is never sacrificed. High-efficiency, high-flow K&N air filter materials prevent contaminants from interfering with proper engine function.

This week on Ignition, Carlos Lago revisits the BMW M5 to test out something that was missing from the first test: a manual transmission. Is the 6-speed stick shift better than the standard automatic twin-clutch version? View inside.

Congrats to site member Cyba on the delivery of his F10 M5 in Taiwan. Wasting no time at all in modifying his Alpine White M5, it’s already been fitted with HRE wheels (lowered on H&R springs) and Akrapovic exhaust system.

The white M5 is a perfect addition to an already beastly garage – joining Cyba’s Nissan GT-R and Ferrari 458.
