RDSport RS35 Biturbo takes the Bmw 335i to the M3 level

Article by Christian A., on August 27, 2010

Immediately noticeable is the lower, tougher posture of the car that is made possible by a Chassis Kit which includes a new bespoke-valved Bilstein struts, more rigid springs and anti-roll bars.

It now sits 25mm lower up front and 20mm lower at the rear with a significantly more balanced ride. Lightweight 20 inch RD2 Monoblock wheels are standard and 20 inch RS2 multi-piece wheels are optional on the car.

The wheels are covered with P Zero Nero's by Pirelli. The performance ratings of the engine have been improved with electronic modifications to increase boost and optimize fuel efficiency and timing.

Air to cool the engine is provided by a free-flowing intake and a larger, more efficient intercooler. A larger exhaust conducts exhaust gases out the rear through stainless sport mufflers with four tips.

Consequently, there is significant boost to horsepower of 414bhp and torque of 404lb-ft, higher than the Bmw M3 which is powered by a V8 unit. The engine cover comes in blue with the RDSport crest.

The performance figures are just the result of a lengthy development period together with a TUV homologation. Although any tuning specialist can provide a black box uprate for the car, this revision, however, has been tested and can come with uprated speedometer and wheels and tires required by homologation.

The vehicle's bodywork is a development of RDSport's characteristic Tornado aerodynamics. The front bumper was modified with larger cavities for highly improved engine and brake cooling with integrated exposed carbon housing for fog lamps.

Extra aggressive appearance comes from deeper side skirts and modified rear apron with four exhaust cut outs while the roof and trunk air spoiler smooth out the airflow over the vehicle.

In the interior, the upgrade consists of RS Pedal Set in machined aluminum, aluminum hand brake cover, carpet set with logo, upgraded speedometer with logo, steering wheel and shift know with RDSport crests. All of the cars come with ID badge and a build sheet that is VIN specific.
