As you know, tuner Manhart Performance has had the since 2016 Manhart F56 MINI John Cooper Works "F300" with impressive 300 PS & 470 NM torque at the start. So basically a "normalo Cooper Works“The power-wise just the 306 PS & 450 Nm strong and strictly limited John Cooper Works GP dwarfs. And there is since the action of "Pog" as is known, only 2.999 x in intact Status. But now Manhart has a solution for owners of the limited John Cooper Works GP at the start. A solution that ensures that the top version is the top version again. Curtain up for that too strictly limited Manhart GP3 F350 based on the MINI John Cooper Works GP. In cooperation with the Dutch partner MINIspeed.eu (Beek Auto Racing BV) the days the GP3 F350 presents and, as usual, the number in the new name stands for the performance of the vehicle, which in this case carries the B48 two-liter four-cylinder under the hood.
The power has been increased from the mentioned 306 PS & 450 Nm torque to an impressive 350 PS & 530 Nm. The increase is made possible by chip tuning by the MINI specialists from Beek Auto Racing in The Hague and there was also a Manhart intercooler from Airtec and a replacement pipe for the gasoline particle filter. In combination with the built-in Remus Catback exhaust system with Manhart branding and four-stage flap control, the right soundscape is guaranteed in every speed range on request. And the already very eye-catching optics by means of fender flares and a large rear wing have been dared once again. This is where the team came from JD Customs from the Netherlands. They give the GP a chic full foil in matt black with the Manhart-typical decorative stripes and gold accents. A color that the trunk strut with black Manhart lettering also brings. And it goes without saying that Manhart did not miss out on installing the in-house Concave One wheelset.
with AST suspension lowering springs
It rotates in the 8,5 × 19 inch format in the wheel arches of the MINI and is covered with sticky 235/30 ZR19 slippers. And the matt black wheel set also bears the golden decorative stripes on the horns based on the rest of the vehicle. Manhart left the chassis in series condition and only lowered it by means of AST suspension lowering springs by 20 millimeters at the front and 15 millimeters at the rear. But if that's not enough, you can soon fall back on a fully adjustable coilover kit from the Dutch specialists from AST Suspension. This is currently under development. And Manhart will continue to work with the Beek Auto Racing team (also owner of MINIspeed.eu) from the Netherlands. The MINI specialists are currently working on further tuning parts such as a multi-function additional fitting from P3 Cars or interior / exterior parts from Cravenspeed.
