Hartge BMW 135i with 350 hp

The German BMW 135i received a tuning package from Hartge. Its inline 6-cylinder engine with twin turbo-chargers and a second generation direct-injection system received a power boost of 44 horsepower, but at the same time, the fuel consumption remains at low values. The engine is now capable of developing 350 horsepower and 480 Nm of torque. This output enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph with half a second faster than its standard sibling and to reach a top speed of 280 km/h. The sport suspension is now 25 mm lower and guarantees safety thanks to even greater directional stability and outstanding handling on twisting roads. To send the power to the road, the tuning company equipped the model with a new set of Classic 2 aluminum wheels measuring 9 x 20-inches covered in Pirelli PZero Nero tires measuring 245 / 30 ZR 20 both on the front and rear axle. Other Hartge accessories include a decal set in metallic anthracite, a set of carbon casings for the exterior mirrors and emblems for the bonnet and boot lid and last, but not least, a Hartge insignia. The tuner offers an attractive 3-spoke leather steering wheel with silver carbon inserts. They also provide an illuminated gear knob, including an Alcantara gaiter for the 6-speed manual transmission and the handle-brake handle in a tasteful combination of leather and aluminum. This material is also used for the Hartge steering wheel cover for vehicles with BMW 3-spoke sports airbag steering wheel with multi function and for interior trim for the dashboard, gear lever paneling and door handles. It goes without saying that all Hartge components can also be retrofitted individually, but the suggested price for the new BMW 135i starts at EUR48.162. In this sum the destination charge is not included.
