You have to admit that at first glance, this BMW does not look any different from any other BMW. Start the engine and you immediately notice that it runs quite differently from other engines.
This is the Hartge BMW 535 H35d. Hartge is a premier tuner from Germany and they are showing that they can also serve the other side of the performance market, with expertise in tuning diesel engines.
It has a diesel engine, a 3 liter straight six featuring not one but two turbochargers, upping its horsepower output from 274hp and 445 ft/lb or torque to a massive 354HP and 516 ft/lb of torque.
With the extra power of the engine, you also need to improve the suspension to cope up with the increased stresses on the suspension.
Hartge then replaced the suspension of the H35d with one of their 535D suspensions kits. This allows the car to sit up to 30mm lower and updated springs and dampers ensure that grip is maximized on the tire at all times.
Inside the cabin, Hartge also offers a variety of accessories to improve the looks of your 535d. From 200 mph speedometers to racing inspired pedals and aluminum handbrake lever inserts, Hartge has all the improvements that you need.
The wheels and tires all received one of Hartge’s specialty rims. You have the option of picking one of six designs that Hartge offers and pick the size, width and the tire that you want to go with it.
