The Fastest BMW 1 Series In The World!!!

This just in. Hartge has added to its line of BMW's the new Hartge H1 V8 5.0.

Here is the press release:

Quote:
Watch out, as HARTGE has just introduced the fastest BMW 1 Series in the world: The HARTGE H1 5.0. Like the HARTGE H6 5.1, the H1 V8 5.0 was both revealed and reveled at the Essen (Germany) Motorshow in December 2004, and is available now as part of HARTGE’s full product range.

Once again the HARTGE engineers created something special, this, by transplanting a BMW 5.0L V8 into the newly released 1 series. And this isn’t your normal BMW V8, as it features modified cylinder heads, revised camshaft, and its own engine software mapping; resulting in an output of 450 hp and 376 lb-ft of torque.

To translate this phenomenal power to the ground in the 1 Series, a special drive shaft and 6 speed manual transaxle are installed, along with a new rear sub-frame. With a curb weight of just 1,445 kg (~3200 lbs.), rendering a weight to power ratio of 3.23 kg/hp (7 lb/hp), the H1 catapults from 0-100 km/hr (0-62.5 mph) in just 4,6 sec. The amazing thrust continues to an ultimate top speed of 300 km/h (188 mph).

Having this much power on tap necessitated other improvements, typical of those applied to other HARTGE BMW conversions. It starts with the adjustable HARTGE sport suspension, lowering the car 30mm (1.2”) and featuring specific rate springs and shock absorbers, as developed and defined by HARTGE engineers on the Nurburging as well as the Autobahns and roadways of Germany, to provide a both sophisticated and athletic handling. The best grip to the street with this suspension is enabled by the high-performance tires (from Pirelli or Continental) mounted on 19“ HARTGE Classic wheels. The fronts are 235/35R19“ while the rears measure 265/30R19.

The H1 not only gets up to speed quickly, it also scrubs off that speed effectively, using a specific high-performance brake system from HARTGE. This system includes eight piston front brake calipers and 380 mm cross-drilled floating rotors to create race-car-level deceleration values and street-proven durability.

The appearance is upgraded, starting with a newly designed front spoiler, and aesthetically supporting what lies beneath the skin. At the rear, a new and exclusive center mounted stainless steel rear silencer shines with dual round tail pipes, announcing the “bark” that accompanies the “bite” in this pedigreed automobile. Finally, a new rear spoiler completes the look, one to which most other drivers will be exposed.

Last but not least the owner and passengers are given the HARTGE treatment, as the interior of the H1 is professionally sport-styled. Included in the package are motorsport racing seats, a HARTGE leather sport steering wheel, carbon-fiber interior panels, an aluminium handbrake handle, gear knob, and foot pedals. Finally, a special HARTGE 320 km/h speedometer is fitted, revealing to the privileged pilot the vehicle’s potential.

The HARTGE H1 is another standout offering in the world of automotive accomplishments, continuing HARTGE’s heritage of transforming BMWs to the next level. In this automobile, HARTGE transforms a premium entry-level sedan to a pure-blooded sports car. The full HARTGE program also offers individual drive and styling components for the entire BMW product range, in addition to the new 1 series, allowing any BMW owner to experience what HARTGE calls . . . “the fine way of being fast!”™

I agree. I'm not a fan of it being hatchback, nor 4-door.

4 door defeats the purpose of trying to save weight by making it a hatchback. It's supposted to be a big-engine-in-a-little-car design, but they made it 4 door.

I guess he should have put AWD as there is no way it's front driven only - so he meant 4WD

There is no, and will never be a front driven BMW - Hell - even 325ix had serious rear drive priority
