2005 Hartge H1

Hartge takes care of the smallest BMW, and provides an exclusive upgrade for the new BMW 1 Series. It is sportier, more beautiful and above all, faster than before.

Now, the 120d’s Diesel engine is enhanced up to 196 bhp (146 kw). But more importantly, the driver will now have 390 ft lbs (528 nm) of torque at their disposal. 0-100 km/h takes just 7.4 seconds and continues to an top speed of 138 mph (220 km/h).

The adjustable Hartge sport suspension lowers the car by 30 mm and features specific rate springs and shock absobers for improved handling. Grip is increased by the high-performance tires from Pirelli or Continental mounted on 17,18 or 19 inch Hartge Classic wheels.

The exterior is upgraded by a newly designed front spoiler and awards the Hartge 1 Series an atheltic-agressive character. At the rear, a new spoiler and exclusive center mounted stainless rear sport silencer shines with dual round tail pipes.

For the interior cabin, Hartge offers high-grade equipment elements. An ergonomic Hartge sports steering wheel in full leather, optional with carbon- or aluminium inlays, provides best vehicle/driver contact. Add to this aluminium pedals, handbrake handle, gear knob, as well as carbon-fiber interior panels and designed floor mats in velours.

Not limited to the 120D, The Hartge 1 program offers individual driveline and styling components for the entire series range. In the works i s a 130i gas variation is a compressorkit , which will boost the 1 Series from Hartge beyond the mark of 300 hp.
