MANHART TURNS THE BMW X7 INTO A RUGGED OFF-ROADER
Just two weeks after unveiling its 550-horsepower gold-wrapped 2020 Toyota Supra, German automotive tuner MANHART is back at it again, this time tapping one of its own nation’s most popular SUVs: the BMW X7.
Dubbed the X7 Dirt Edition, the car gets a matte black exterior makeover with fake rivets to resemble armored plating. Of course, the SUV also receives a range of performance and technological upgrades allowing drivers to take the German beast off-road.
Power now comes from a 4.4-liter Biturbo V8 engine pushing out 650 horsepower — 120 horsepower more than its stock output. Torque is also increased from 750 Nm to 920 Nm, allowing better grip in harsh terrains. The air suspension has been given a 40mm lift, with the increased ground clearance then paired with 20-inch Black Rhino wheels with 305/50 R20 treaded mud-terrain tires.
For those interested, you can learn more about MANHART’s BMW X7 Dirt Edition over on the workshop’s website.
