If you think the latest, near-600hp BMW M5 seems a bit tame, then apparently—though surprisingly—you're not alone. This is the Manhart MH5 700, and as well as a bold carbon body kit, it's been turned well past 700hp.

It's an M5 with its twin-turbo V8 boosted to 713hp and 869Nm, up from 592hp and 750Nm. No official 0-100kph time has been quoted, though a 100-200kph time (naturally) of 5.9 seconds is quoted. Relevant for accelerating onto derestricted autobahn, at least. 

Amongst visual changes, the MH5 has new carbon spoilers front and rear and an aggressive diffuser, improving aerodynamics and providing a far more original appearance than a regular M5.

The MH5 also has a stainless-steel exhaust, making it easier to show off. But if you spec yours with the gold stripe and gold-rimmed 21-inch alloys, you won't need any help with that anyway.
