Just in case you needed that extra “oomph” from your brand new BMW X5 xDrive35d, Hartge has just what you need, in the form of a newly released performance and aerodynamic package for this version of the Bavarian SUV which takes the engine’s output to 328 HP.
No details on what concrete modifications were made, but it’s a safe bet that the engineers reprogrammed the ECU and fitted a sports exhaust system. As such, the 3-liter engine will now greatly improve its stock figures, growing to 328 from 265 HP and sprinting from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.1 seconds, from a flat 7 seconds time. The top speed has also been improved, from 235 km/h to 244 km/h (151 mph).
On the outside, Hartge fitted a previously released version of an X5 body kit, which includes accessories like the new front and rear fascias, extensions for the wheel arches and more aggressive side sills. A sports suspension set has also been outfitted, as well as a set of stainless steel muffler tips, carbon fiber mirror casings and a set of 22-inch Brilliant Classic 2 wheels. On the inside, the team at Hartge added a carbon fiber trim line, a new set of revamped instrument dials, aluminum pedals and, in order to finish it off, black velour floor mats.
In case you find yourself interested in this new model from Hartge, the price is €87,277.
