BMW M135i is long-gone but the top of the line model from the 1-Series still remains one of the most haunted down models. And the real proof stands the hundreds of customizations carried out by different tuning companies.
One example is this facelifted M135i xDrive version, the model receiving an impressive power boost courtesy to DS Automobile tuner. It involves the fitting of a Hamann power kit which raises the car`s stock power to a whole new level of performance.
So far, we are used to seeing a lot of BMW products receiving standout body kits, but this lad seen here looks pretty much the same as the factory version, besides some slight changes at the front and rear bumpers, along with the Hamann Anniversary Evo wheels.
The real deal is underneath the hood. In the stock version, the BMW M135i xDrive packs the famous N55 3.0-liter straight-six engine with M Performance TwinPower Turbo technology, good for 320 horsepower and 450 Nm of torque.
But with the Hamann power kit, this BMW M135i xDrive is now capable of delivering 360 horsepower, which is quite impressive if you asked me. We are not sure of the performance figures, but it will surely run the 0 to 100 km/h sprint in less the stock 4.8 seconds.
Honestly, I would have wanted to see more upgrades from DS Automobile, as they primarily deal with body styling customizations, and this model here could have looked better with some one-off styling cues. Perhaps the tuner will have the chance to fine-tune another M135i and we will surely be back with more details on that.
