Manhart Racing tunes up the BMW M135i to a total power output of 400 horsepower.

The BMW M135i is one of the most fun vehicles we have driven in 2013, if not in the last ten years, and it is currently available in Europe. Those of us on this side of the pond will have to settle for its larger brother, the upcoming M235i, another vehicle that promises the ride of your life.

Manhart also gives the M135i a striking “paint job” aka vinyl wrap with 3D patterns. The super sporty hatch comes with a redesigned front spoiler, rear diffuser, upgraded exhaust system and 19-inch OZ Ultraleggera wheels.

For a sportier appearance, the KW Clubsport coilovers were included by the tuner which bring the M135i closer to the tarmac.

In addition to the suspension and sports tires, Manhart fitted the M135i with a more powerful brake system with 8-piston at the front and 4 piston at the rear. The 380 and 365 millimeter discs promise great braking capabilities.

The power boost accounts for 403 hp and 561 Newton meters of torque, which is accomplished by an additional control unit. The M135i is powered by a six-cylinder unit with a single turbo (N55) which in standard form produces 320 hp and 450 Nm of torque (332 lb-ft).

Inside, the BMW M Performance seats with Manhart lettering and numerous Alcantara elements enhance the sporty look, while the colored interior trim strips made of carbon ensure consistency with the exterior design and colors.

    Being a BMW fan, what an ugly car!

    1 series design always seemed to me to resemble a child in the womb. Philosophy behind it being that the 3 series is still the ‘youngest in the family’ a nod to the genes and the roots, but since a niche was to be filled they went this way, kind of a yet to be born thing. It’s not pretty for sure, but its has some kind of charm, I like it.

    P.S. Somebody Please Please Please shed share some detail about the colour of this thing, it’s gorgeous…!!!
