Manhart Formentor CP 500 based on Cupra Formentor VZ5

The German tuner Manhart has shown that it is one of the best in the world, especially when it comes to brands like VW, BMW, Audi or Tesla. Their latest work is the Manhart Formentor CP 500, based on the Cupra Formentor VZ5.

It is a high-performance SUV, and the first photos show that Manhart engineers have created a powerful beast. Under the hood is a 2.5-liter five cylinder engine with 490 hp (360 kW) and 465 lb-ft (630 Nm) of torque. As a reminder, the Cupra Formentor VZ5 has 390 hp (287 kW), and the increase in power was achieved thanks to the use of the MHtronik powerbox. Power is sent to all wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

The car is finished in black with gold stripes on both sides of the car as well as the entire length of the body. It is equipped with a set of 20-inch black Cocave One rims, a new exhaust system with valve control and dual pipes on both sides that replaces the factory ones, while there are no aerodynamic improvements yet, but that does not mean that there won’t be some in the future.

The company announced that it will soon offer Stage 2, which will include a new intercooler, air intake and a new remapping of the ECU unit, which means more power (at least 600 hp).
