Swiss tuner Sportec has presented last week at Geneva Motor Show its modified variant of the BMW M135i. The first thing the Swiss company worked on was the heart of the car. Initially, when coming out of the factory gates, the BMW M135i had 320 HP (235 kW) and 332 lb-ft (450 Nm) of torque. Through a software optimization, the tuner upgraded its power to 355 HP (261 kW) and 376 lb-ft (510 Nm). This is the first stage from a two- steps upgrading kit. The second stage means a 200- cell catalyst and downpipe to raise the extra power to 370 HP (272 kW).
The kit is available for the price of 4,300 EUR and it allows the BMW M135i to reach 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in only 4.6 seconds. This means it is 0.3s faster than the base model. The maximum speed has also changed. The regular model had an electronically-limited 155 mph (250 km/h) speed. This upgraded engine can reach an also electronically-limited speed, but this time at 171 mph (275 km/h). The work done by Sportec turns BMW into a faster car.
