The MINI Manhart GP3 F350 is the latest product from Manhart and builds upon the new Mini John Cooper Works GP3.
With deliveries of the much anticipated JCW GP3 only just starting, German tuning company Manhart has already got its mitts on an example and produced the Manhart GP3 F350.
Like the name suggests, power is now at 350hp, a 45hp hike over the standard car’s 306bhp and 332lb ft factory specs. This is achieved via an ECU map via MINI specialists Beek Auto Racing, who also increase the torque to 390lb ft. Replacement parts come in the form of an Airtec intercooler, particulate filter replacement pipe and cat-back exhaust system from Remus.
Aside from the decals, the exterior has remained relatively standard, with Manhart Concave One wheels being added for more aggression. Manhart also states that because the chassis has already been heavily worked on by JCW, it limits its chassis changes to just lowering springs provided by AST Suspension, which drops the front by 20mm and the rear by 15mm.
Manhart has also said this isn’t the last in the line of modifications for the JCW GP. It hopes to also release further engine upgrades including a carbon fibre intake, downpipes and other exhaust setups to help increase power.
All of the individual parts are available here.
