Hatrge Introduces xDrive35d Performance Package for the BMW X5

Hartge BMW X5 xDrive35d Tuning

When the power rendered by the customary BMW X5 crossover utility vehicle 3.0L engine is not enough, it is big tuning houses like the Germans from Hatrge who come to the rescue. Hatrge has introduced the xDrive35d Performance Package for the BMW X5 which increases the ponies from the standard 265 hp to an appreciable 328hp.

The magic was worked upon by recalibrating the ECU and furnishing a sport exhaust system for the CUV. As a consequence of these changes, the X5 pelts from 0 to 100km/h in 6.1 seconds (impressive for such a heavy car) which is 0.9 seconds better than the original, on its way to a max speed of 244km/h. To accommodate the more powerful engine, Hatrge have used the previously released body kit that includes redesigned front and rear fascias, wheel arch extensions and bolder two-piece side sills. The fully trimmed CUV costs €87,277.

The G-POWER X5 Typhoon RS with 625 Horses

Published by on Aug 6th, 2009, No Comments


G-POWER had an X5 Typhoon in place a few months back and that too was a powerful machine capable of producing 525 hp but then it seemingly got annoyed with BMW exceeding that power for the standard X5 M confirmed at 555 hp. In response to this development, G-Power has now come up with an even more powerful variant of the X5 — the X5 Typhoon RS that churns 625hp with a maximum torque of 700Nm from an entirely overhauled 4.8-litre V8. The impetus came from a G-POWER SK III RS supercharger with a 1.0 bar boost pressure. With these additions, the X5 can hit the 100Km/h mark in 4.5 seconds and tops it out at 285km/h. This fierce engine is mated with a 6-speed automatic transmission all functioning on an xDrive AWD system. You even get some trendy accessories like a design speedometer, a sports steering wheel and aluminum bits.

BMW Vision EfficientDynamics X5

International Motor Show in Geneva this year is going to be big. Very big, because there are so many announcements with lots of new models coming up. That’s the case with this BMW twin-turbo diesel hybrid X5 that uses the Vision EfficientDynamics Concept technology. The engine is a 2.0 liter four cylinder diesel that sports 204hp and 295 lb-ft of torque, and is mated to a hybrid motor that brings 20hp more and 154 lb-ft of torque.

It uses a 8-speed gearbox designed by ZF and it should be able to come up with 43.5 mpg, and with 172 g/km of CO2 emissions. This is so green that the solar panels have been mounted on the roof. This is going to be the world premiere of the BMW Vision EfficientDynamics X5 so I bet it’s gonna be big.
