BMW M135i by Sportec

Hot Hatch

Performance upgrades raise output to 370 horsepower and slash the hot hatch's 0-62 mph time to 4.6 seconds.

Swiss tuner Sportec recently introduced this tricked-out BMW M135i, giving the German hot hatch a two-stage performance kit. The Stage 1 upgrade includes a remapped ECU that boosts output to 355 horsepower and 376 pound-feet of torque, up from from 320 hp and 332 lb-ft stock. Stage 2 adds a 200-cell catalyst and downpipes with titanium tailpipes that further increases output to 370 hp. The result is a 0.3 second quicker 0-62 mph time of 4.6 seconds.

The tuner Teutonic pocket rocket also boasts a new electronically-limited top speed of 171 mph, up from the 155 limiter most German automakers voluntarily place on their cars from the factory. The Sportec M135i rides on a set of 19-inch SP10 alloys available in matte titanium, semi-gloss black or white. The cost of the upgrade including the Stage II kit is 4,300 Euros.
