A new car, the Bmw X6 xDrive35d, was created when Herbert Hartge and his crew combined a four-wheel-drive car from the SAV segment and a coupe. The German tuning specialist improved the already powerful diesel unit with a twin turbo to currently produce 241kW (328hp) at 4400 rpm and a maximum torque of 675Nm at 2000rpm.
Simultaneously, CO2 emissions is 220g/km, well within limits for such a potent machine. The X6 xDrive35d consumes half a liter less per 100 kilometers compared with rivals in a comparable situation.
The performance numbers are also quite remarkable, in spite of its heavy 2,185kg overall weight, I can hit 100km/h in just 6 seconds, about .9 seconds faster than the standard xDrive35d. Without electronic limiter, the HARTGE version hits the 256km/h top speed. Harmonizing with the power hidden under the sheet is the HARTGE aerodynamic package in high grade PUR-RIM material.

These striking aluminum wheels are covered with ultra-wide rubber (295/30 ZR 22 up front and 335/25 ZR 22 at the back). Completing the package are a front air spoiler and a rear skirt with a built-in air diffuser, carbon casings for the exterior mirrors, stainless steel tail elements with a large variant of quadrilateral tail pipes for both the left and right for the exhaust system with HARTGE badge underscore the custom outfit of this X6 xDrive35d.
On the inside, the cabin is dominated by a HARTGE sporting theme. The steering wheel has three spokes and comes with carbon inserts with carbon covers as options and in front of it is a 300km/h speedometer and rev gauge with dials in metallic silver with red needles.
The interior architecture provides sufficient room for customization provided by a choice of accessories consisting of decor and interior trim, carbon components for the console and dashboard, foot rest and pedal set in aluminum, together with foot and load-area mats in black velour.
