Hartge BMW X5

The BMW X5 SAV features sporty accessories like a front spoiler, rear skirt and two-piece side sills. Under the hood it hides a modified ECU that performs great things. This increases the output of the 3.0d-liter engine from 235 horsepower to 275 horsepower and from 520 Nm of torque to almost 600 Nm of torque. The power is being sent to all its four wheels through its 6-speed automatic gearbox. This enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.4 seconds down from 8.3 seconds and to reach a top speed of 232 km/h. Thanks to a sports spring set with level control system for rear axle, this X5 is namely 30 mm lower. HARTAGE also equips the BMW X5 with a set of classic light alloy wheels. The 22-inch ones are covered in 285 Pirelli Scorpio Zero tires at front and rolls on extra-wide 335-size tires of the same type at the back. The rear skirt is flanked by a HARTGE stainless steel tail piece with oval tail pipes left and right. On the inside we will find the HARTGE 3-spoke leather steering wheel with its silver carbon inserts, which replaces the BMW 3-spoke standard airbag steering wheel, another eye-catching feature is the 300 km/h speedometer with dial in silver metallic and red needle. There is also a HARTGE carbon interior trims for dashboard, gear knob paneling and front and rear seat. The tuners are also offering a load floor mat in black velour with extensible flap to cover rear bumper as an added convenience. The starting price for the new HARTGE BMW X5 was established at EUR 57.554 plus VAT. Of course, all the add-on parts offered by HARTGE can be retrofitted individually.
