The next generation BMW 5-Series has already been officially revealed and presented, but it has not reached the markets yet. Still, a couple of tuning companies seem to have got their share of units already. The Italian tuning company Racing Dynamics is one of those tuners that got a couple of next generation BMW 5-Series cars in order to work their magic on the premium sedan. Now, the Italian tuning company revealed a teaser photo and some preliminary specs of their projects that will be named 535i R35 and 550i R50S. Both of the projects will be based on the 2011 BMW 5-Series and will get styling and performance upgrades. If you live in the USA and the name Racing Dynamics does not sound familiar, it is because the Italian tuning company is known under the name RDSport there.
The modifications done by Racing Dynamics are quite impressive. The standard 2011 BMW 535i gets its power from a petrol engine capable of developing 306 horsepower that allows the premium sedan to go from 0 to 60 mph (0 to 96 km/h) in 6.0 seconds. Well, Racing Dynamics improved the 3.0 liter inline six cylinder twin scroll turbocharger engine up to 410 horsepower, which translates into an improvement of 104 horsepower or 34%. Thanks to the huge improvement that the engine has benefited from, the Racing Dynamics 535 R35 is able to go from 0 to 96 km/h (0 to 60 mph) in 5.3 seconds. The top of the range 2011 BMW 550i gets its power from a 4.4 liter V8 twin turbo engine that has an output of 407 horsepower. The Italian tuning company has modified the engine so that it is able to churn out a total of 620 horsepower, which represents an improvement of 213 horsepower or 52%. I am sure that there will be a lot of people that will want to get the most out of their 2011 BMW 5-Series .
In addition to the engine modifications done by Racing Dynamics, they have also added some interesting new features, including various options for the interior including special trim inlays, new 21 inch lightweight alloy wheels as well as an aero kit.
Other technical improvements include gas pressurized shock absorbers for the rear axle, a custom made exhaust system, a retuned and lowered suspension with new gas struts for the front axle, a high performance braking system as well as a new rear locking differential.
