In its never-ending quest to satisfy the power-thirsty tuning crowd, Hartge has developed a new performance package for the BMW 135i Coupe that gives the twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter inline six a power boost of 44 HP through a new ECU module raising total output to 350 HP at 5,600 rpm and maximum torque to 480 Nm (lb-ft 354) at 2950 rpm. The Hartge prepped 135i Coupe dashes from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.8 sec or half a second faster than its standard brother while it achieves a top speed of 280 km/h or 174 mph. Despite the increased performance, Hartge supports that average fuel consumption is the same as the standard model, at 9.2 lt/100 km or 25.6 mpg. -Continued
Engine tuning aside, Hartge’s performance pack for the BMW 135i Coupe includes a full bodykit that consists of a front spoiler lip, roof spoiler, lip for boot lid, rear diffuser and side sills complemented by 20-inch alloy wheels fitted with Pirelli P-Zero Nero tires (245 / 30 ZR 20 front and rear) and a 25 mm lower sports suspension. Other improvements include a sports exhaust system, decals and Hartge logos and a set of carbon (silver or black) casings for the exterior mirrors.
HARTGE also offers a 3-spoke leather steering wheel with silver (or black) carbon inserts. The same material is used for the interior trim for the dash board, gear lever panelling and door handles. The interior enhancements are completed by an illuminated gear knob, including an alcantara gaiter for the 6-speed manual gear box and the handbrake handle in a combination of leather and aluminium. If you live in Germany, a fully equipped 135i Coupe by HARTGE will set you back by €48,162.14, excluding VAT.
