Deutschland uber alles! Hopefully, I’ll still get to write again after such an opening statement, despite my certain bias towards Bavarian car makers.
Aside from a certain favoritism going on towards BMW, I do love a set of tuning companies that really know what they are doing when it comes to this kind of cars.
Since it was the Germans that brought us fast business and luxury saloons it only seems fitting that they fulfill our modifying needs.
In the case of German specialist Hartge, they’ve shown their work on numerous occasions.
With the F10 BMW M5 they didn’t come up with anything remarkably new or innovative. Nobody saw any major changes in what they had planned and that’s just great.
When it comes to buying stuff like this you don’t want surprises, you really want something distinctive and special without looking like a clown version.
That’s why Hartge fitted a new front spoiler, a rear silencer, carbon fibre mirror casings, 21 inch multi-spoke alloys with Michelin or Continental tires.
Inside you can have a few similar tweaks such as custom aluminium pedal sets and branded floor mats made from velour.
There is one thing that’s considerably special about the Hartge F10 BMW M5. It has had a bit of tweaking under the bonnet.
It seems that under the business suit, this pretty lady is wearing some really sexy underwear as the 4.4 liter twin-turbo V8 engine develops more grunt.
Pinch it, and you’ll see a reaction worth 642 horsepower and 597 lb-ft of torque. That’s borderline porn excitement levels.
