It is true that the all-new BMW 3 Series has been in the spotlight in the last two weeks and this is why we will talk right now about another new model in the range, the sixth generation BMW 5 Series, also known as F10. The German manufacturer, Hartge, prepared a complete tuning package for the BMW 535d, a model equipped with a 3.0-liter turbodiesel unit offering 300 horsepower. After few modifications, the Hartge H35d (as this is the name of the modified 5 Series) is able to deliver 354 horses and 700 Nm of torque.
On the other hand, the exterior appearance is improved by a new set of 21-inch ten-spoke alloy wheels along with new carbon fiber housings for the side mirrors.
“Chosen by the readers of a renowned specialist magazine as the most sporting car of 2011 in the diesel category, the Hartge H35d is distinguished by an exhilarating performance. Hartge, an important manufacturer of BMW-based sports cars for 40 years, has coaxed a massive 354 hp (260 kW) at 3400 rpm from the 535d (F10),” said Hartge
Other improvements include a new suspension system with sport springs able to lower the ground clearance by around 30 mm along a new exhaust system with 80 mm tailpipes. At the interior, Hartge offers new trim packages along with stainless-steel door sills and aluminum pedals.
