AC Schnitzer came up with the most outrageous variant, after the tuner stuffed a modified variant of the M3 and M4’s S55 421PS (425hp) 3.0L turbo six producing 570PS (562hp) under the M2’s bonnet, but Manhart took it up a notch, turning the dial up to 11. 

The German tuner decided to celebrate its 30th anniversary by creating a monstrous, but very special M2. So, after much consideration (like 5 seconds), the car received a 630PS (621hp) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque 3.0-litre S55, featuring a bespoke intercooler, and custom turbos.

There aren’t any official performance figures out in the open yet, but the standard M4 is capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h (62mph) in 4.3 sec (4.1sec with the DCT), while AC Schnitzer’s 570PS (562hp) boasts a time of 3.9 seconds. So, you can imagine what Manhart’s figures are capable of, especially as the car’s body kit comes with carbon fiber accessories and hood – which shave off a few kilos.
