With the recent release of Hartge’s upgrade kit for the F10 BMW 520d, I kind of expected to see another one of their products really soon.
And to prove me right, here they are with a new power boost, this time for the BMW 535i GT, a car that, in some opinions, is long overdue for a nice Hartge makeover.
In a true Hartge manner, the upgrade is accompanied by one of their bland but revealing videos, which you can watch if you scroll down. As for the kit itself, it brings justice to the aftermarket specialist’s legacy.
In standard form, the BMW 535i GT is capable of delivering 306 Hp and 400 Nm of torque, thanks to its 3.0 liter, 6 cylinder engine. Those numbers translate into an acceleration time to 100 km/h of 6.3 seconds, a time that is not great, but respectable for a GT.
Still, with the Hartge upgrade, the BMW 535i can improve on those numbers, delivering 362 Hp and 480 Nm of torque, but only if you can afford the €2.000 price tag.
