This car combines two dying components of the automobile industry. For one thing V8 petrol, which is increasingly falling victim to downsizing and electrification, on the other hand the classic Station wagon body, which will be successively replaced by SUV and crossover models. It is all the more exciting that such an express transporter like the Manhart CR 700 Wagon on the basis of the Mercedes-AMG C 63 S T-model ensures one last riot of its kind. It breaks with the conventions of the current models, so to speak, and takes you back and forth to a time when you only had to charge smartphones and laptops, but not automobiles. The Wuppertal tuning experts from Manhart cheated again and left (like regularly lately) the BMW paths by creating this floor that we are introducing to you today.
Power suit with sleeper ambitions!
With this vehicle you have created a monster that many car fans (not just Mercedes fans) will love and immediately take them into their hearts. And it should be immediately clear to every tuning fan which tuner lent a hand here when he did the black paint with the yellow color accents sees.
This modified Benz also got the typical Manhart design, so you can immediately recognize it as a Manhart vehicle. They are joined by the in-house Concave One Wheels, which already adorn various BMW models of the tuner in this form, and with their silk-matt, black finish perfectly match the symbiosis of black and yellow. The double-spoke rims measure 9 × 20 inches on the front axle and 10,5 × 20 inches on the rear axle. Tires in the format 255/30 ZR20 on the front axle and 275/30 ZR20 on the drive axle of the rear-wheel drive vehicle were mounted on the chic rounds.
Manhart also offers an in-house Coil spring set, which was developed together with H&R, and a stepless adjustment the lowering allowed. And also in things brake systems are made by Manhart Upgrade kits offered, which can be purchased at an additional cost. The standard brake system is apparently still installed in this vehicle, but it is new lacquered und mit Manhart lettering has been populated.
Everything is standard in the interior!
In the case of the Manhart-Tuning demonstration object, in contrast to the exterior, everything has remained standard in the interior. However, in-house customization packages for the cockpit are available for an additional charge. These can be configured freely according to taste and budget.
712 PS & 920 NM ensure brute propulsion!
The four-liter V8 turbo gasoline engine of the C63 S AMG was made with the help of Upgrade turbochargersto Carbon-sucking, one Intercooler upgrades as well as a ECU remapping from 510 PS & 700 NM to breathtaking 712 PS increased. The maximum torque of the engine is incredible 920 Newton meterswhich thanks to the modified AMG Speedshift transmission with nine speed levels can be easily handled. The intermediate sprint from 100 to 200 km / h thus succeeds in those that cause heart attacks 5,5 seconds, and the standard sprint from zero to 100 km / h should be around three seconds being exhausted.
Manhart also offers two for export only Sport exhaust variants one of which even has a race downpipe without a catalyst comes along, and thus does not receive a blessing from the TÜV. Thus, an exhaust upgrade for German customers is - who want to remain legal - unfortunately unInteresting. This also applies to the version with velvet 200-cell catalysts. But even without Exhaust system updates this express transporter is an absolute infernal device.
Our conclusion on the Manhart CR 700 Wagon:
The power suit from Manhart is not intended for shy hearts. His exterior is too shrill for that, and the irrepressible power too high. But if you enjoy performance and like a little color on the car, then this is the right place for you.
