Tuningwerk does the BMW M235i RS with 440 hp

Article by Christian A., on June 19, 2014

After seeing the Manhart MH2 Clubsport, another tuning programme for the BMW M235i Coupe caught our attention, this time from Tuningwerk. The tuning company unveiled their M235i RS, an enhanced version of the German coupe that promises to be even more powerful than the MH2 Clubsport.

The six-cylinder 3.0-liter engine that powers the standard M235i Coupe was boosted from 326 hp (240 kW) to 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque to 444 hp (326 kW) and 600 Nm of torque. As a result, the Tuningwerk M235i RS accelerates from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 4.3 seconds and to 120 mph (193 km/h) in 15.4 seconds.

For hard racing use, Tuningwerk can offer you additional car body stiffening and struts. Regarding the design, the M235i RS comes with a new front lip, rear diffuser and a rear spoiler, all made of carbon fiber.

Tuningwerk upgraded the vehicle with an additional cooling agent cooler as well as a 850 W fan. As an option, the company offers a heat exchanger. The sound of the engine is enhanced thanks to a new stainless steel axle back exhaust with valve command and tail pipes.

Behind the 18-inch forged steel rims, there is a new Brembo braking system that includes 350x34 racing steel discs and 6 piston brake calipers on the front axle.

Inside, we find new PolePosition Recaro seats and an optional rollover cage as well as 6 point seat belts. The total weight of the M235i RS with a full tank is 1,490 kg. Pricing starts at 65,000 euros.
