Manhart has added the BMW X7 to its catalogue of modified cars, with the German brand’s flagship SUV getting an off-road-ish makeover and more power.

Inspired by armored command vehicles of special force units, the body was wrapped in a custom foil with matte black brushed surfaces and 3D rivets. It also sports the tuner’s 20×10-inch Black Rhino rims shod in chunky Maxxis Bighorn MT-764 305/50 rubber and a modified air suspension, which has increased ground clearance by around 40 mm (1.6 in).

Based on the M50i version of the X7, the MHX7 650 Dirt Edition, which is the official name of the project, also boasts more power thanks to the Manhart’s HJS downpipe that reduces back-pressure, a stainless steel exhaust system with valve control, and re-mapped software. As a result, the tuned X7 now has 650 PS (641 HP / 478 kW) and 920 Nm (679 lb-ft) of torque.

This makes Manhart’s MHX7 650 Dirt Edition more powerful than the 621 PS (612 HP / 457 kW) and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) Alpina XB7, which can run the quarter-mile in 12.6 seconds and has a 290 km/h (180 mph) maximum speed.

By comparison, the stock twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 produces 530 PS (523 HP / 390 kW) and 750 Nm (553 lb-ft) and is coupled to an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive with M Sport rear differential. This combo allows the X7 M50i to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 4.5 seconds and hit an electronically limited top speed of 130 mph (209 km/h), or 155 mph (250 km/h) with summer performance tires.

Drifting is certainly enjoyable, but it should only be done in controlled areas; public roads are not the place to do it as many things can go wrong. Case at hand, this Nissan driver.

We recently found this video on Reddit and while it’s unclear exactly where it was filmed, it shows just how quickly things can get messy should you make a mistake while trying to drift.

As the driver of the Nissan, which appears to be 240SX from the late 1990s, approaches a right-hand bend, they head to the left and kick the tail out. However, moments later, they run out of space and the car hits the grass on the side of the road.

Despite the left wheels being the grass and one of the front wheels lifting off the ground, the driver continues to hold the drift, rather than letting off the throttle and trying to recover the car. Before long, they lose control and slide down a small embankment into a row of trees.

The video cuts off just as the 240SX approaches the trees. Regardless of whether or not the car needed some costly repairs after the incident, the driver, who we hope escaped with no injuries, has no doubt learned a lesson to not go drifting on public roads.

Bronco fans will have to wait a little longer to get behind the wheel of the highly-anticipated SUV, but it appears Ford isn’t done whipping up accessories for the model.

As you can see in this picture taken by a member of the Bronco6G forums, a prototype was spotted wearing a fastback-style soft top.

Little is known about the roof at this point, but what you see is presumably what you get. In this case, it’s a slightly sportier soft top with angular quarter windows and a rakish rear screen.

The roof likely draws inspiration from the aftermarket soft tops offered for the Jeep Wrangler and it does look a little nicer than the standard roof.

While there’s always the possibility this an aftermarket roof, Ford has already confirmed there will be more than 200 officially licensed accessories for the Bronco at launch. The company hasn’t revealed all of them yet, but the configurator lists Bimini roofs, tubular doors, auxiliary lights and a Warn winch – among other things. Ford has also noted these accessories can be rolled into vehicle financing agreements and installed by dealers.

Of course, we’ll likely have to wait a little longer to learn more about the roof as the Bronco’s launch was pushed back to the summer following coronavirus-related issues with suppliers. That’s unfortunate, but Ford is compensating customers and they could very well use that compensation to buy accessories for their Bronco.
