Default Manhart Racing creates a V10 powered BMW M3 Wagon

BMW M3 is available as a coupe and as a four-door saloon. Power comes from a 4.2-liter engine. There is no wagon version, but that does not mean it canít be created.

BMW tuner Manhart Racing decided to built the car that BMW for some reason hasnít built yet; an M3 touring. As Manhart Racing specializes in fitting various BMW models with the 5.0-liter V10 engine from the M5 E60 it was obvious they will use the V10 not the 4.2-liter V8 in their E91 M3 Wagon project. After optimizing the electronic and incorporating HJSís stainless-steel four-pipe exhaust system with two 200-cell racing catalytic convertors, the engine produces 550 horsepower, which is kept on a tight leash by the 7-speed SMG gearbox.


Manhart Racing claims that 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) comes in only 4.3 seconds and the top speed is 324 km/h (201 mph). To give the standard E91 a true M3 Wagon look it got a new front apron, front side panels, side skirts and of course, the characteristic powerdome bonnet from the M3 saloon, M3-style rear apron and widened rear wheel-arches.


BMW M3 E91 5.0 V10 SMG in details:

Bodywork: M3 E90 front apron, M3 E90 front fenders, M3 E90 bonnet, M3 E90 side skirts, M3 E90 wing mirrors, Manhart Racing-designed, M3-style, rear apron, widened rear wheel arches in the style of the M3.


Engine: 5.0-litre V10 from the M5 E60, modified engine electronics, lifting of the Vmax limiter, complete stainless steel exhaust system with 2 x 200-cell HJS catalytic converters and 4 x 86mm exhaust pipes, tank from the M3 E90, 550 PS.


Transmission: 7-speed SMG from the M5 E60, 100% limited slip differential from the M5 E60, front and rear axel from the M3 E90.
Chassis: Bilstein PSS10 coilover suspension, steering system from the M3 E90.


Brakes: Stoptech Sport Trophy Kit front and back, 6-piston callipers and 380mm slats in the front, and 4-piston callipers and 355mm slats at the rear.


Wheel/Tyres: three-part RńD Monza aluminium rims in 9.5″ x 20″ ET20 and 10.5″ x 20″ ET20, Hankook Ventus S1 Evo Tyres in sizes 255/30ZR20 and 295/25ZR20


Interior: heated BMW performance sports seats, leather-covered back seats in the style of the front seats, full leather interior with Alcantara roof and door lining, BMW performance steering wheel with illuminating indicator switches, acceleration and ľ mile time displays.
