If you thought the Lamborghini Urus wasn’t already excessive enough, German tuner Manhart is on the same page.
Where the twin-turbo V8-powered Urus normally puts out 478kW and 850Nm from its 4.0-litre Audi-derived engine, Manhart tuned the bent eight to extract 597KW and 980Nm.
This means Manhart has gifted the Urus an additional 119kW and 130Nm. That’s not far from adding a 1.5-litre MX-5 on top of the Urus’ outputs.
On top of that, Manhart has enlisted Russia-based Topcar Design to supply the style, resulting in an outwardly loud body that seems to amplify the Urus’ already unsubtle looks.
Topcar’s photos of the Urus 800 feature a clean yellow paintjob, but Manhart’s Facebook page features edited black accents and a more dramatic finish on the photo. Bumblebee, is that you?
While Manhart will often design its own body kits, Topcar’s carbon-laden splitters and diffusers suit the aggro-Urus well.
If the name Manhart sound familiar, you might have heard it in reference to a wide array of other tuned models produced by the company. Manhart’s main game is, however, tuning BMW Group models.
But where companies like Alpina will create a plush (yet fast) car with a BMW as its base, Manhart doesn’t do subtle… as you can see in the Urus.
Take the Manhart MH1 S Biturbo as an example. Does a BMW 1 Series need an extra turbocharger and 343kW? Of course not, but Manhart did it anyway.
The N54 straight six (which also produces 606Nm in this application) turns the One into a little terror, and Manhart’s custom bodywork doesn’t hide that.

Manhart is yet to reveal more information about the Urus 800 officially, but MOTOR will be keeping a close eye on the German tuner.
