We’re talking about the underpowered base model of the range, which comes with a 1.6-liter four-cylinder petrol with TwinPower Turbo and direct injection technology, but only 136 horsepower and 220Nm (162 lb-ft) of torque.

However, Hartge’s engine remap has pushed the engine to a more respectable 171 horsepower and 265Nm (195 lb-ft) at 2,000 rpm. To show the improvement in pulling power, the tuner has also posted a video of the car’s in-hear acceleration between 80-180km/h (50-112mph).

The cosmetic touches you can bring to your Hartge 116i include a set of aluminum pedals, bespoke floor mats, 19-inch custom wheels and a sports exhaust.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
