Hartge Pumps Up the BMW X6
text size: A- A+
The tuner has chosen to play with the X6 xDrive 4.0d’s ECU software, increasing the power from 306 hp to 345 hp and boosting the torque from 600 Nm (443 lb-ft) to 700 Nm (516 lb-ft). The beefier powerplant manages to cover the 0 to 62 mph sprint 0.6 seconds faster than the stock one, while the top speed is increased by 12 km/h (7 mph) to 248 km/h (154 mph).
The X6 has received a set of lowering springs that bring it 30 mm closer to the road, enhancing both handling and apeearance. The car has been fitted with 22-inch Hartge Classic 2 wheels: 22x10.5-inch rims with 295/30 tires for the front and 22x12-inch rims with 335/25 tires for the rear.
The vehicle also comes with a special body kit that offers it a more aggressive appearance. Our eye was caught by the two stainless steel tailpipes that use an angular design, which offers them a rugged appearance.
The cabin of the Hartge BMW X6 has been fitted with carbon fiber trimming for the dashboard, center console and door panels, custom instruments and a new three-spoke leather-wrapped steering wheel that can optionally be fitted with carbon fiber inserts. Enthusiasts can also choose the optional aluminum pedals, as well as special floor mats, which are made from velour and finished in a wide range of colors.
