Hartge BMW X1
Hartge have released details of their new tuning program for the BMW X1. They have developed their balanced power-boosting products for the 1.8 and 2.0 liter engines of the X1.
The base engine of the 18d receives an upgrade which enables the engine to produce 169 hp (126 kW / 171 PS) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque. This allows a manually-equipped sDrive18d to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 8.1 seconds (an improvement of 1.5 seconds) and hit a top speed of 217 km/h (135 mph).
The Hartge X1 xDrive20d shown here hÃ¡s a kit which allows the engine to produce an extra 32 hp (24 kW / 32 PS) and 65 Nm (48 lb-ft) of torque. The added power results in a 0 to 100 km/h time of 6.9 seconds (an improvement of 1.2 seconds) and a top speed of 229 km/h (142 mph).
Besides the performance packages, Hartage offers a stainless-steel sport exhaust system, lowering springs (which reduce ride height 30mm), and 20-inch ‘Classic 2’ wheels. Inside, customers can order a three-spoke leather steering wheel with aluminium emblem, aluminum pedals, and velour floor mats.
