German cars are known for their resilience, power and great looks, and even though Volkswagens and Audis are appealing in their own way, it’s obvious that BMW rides are in a league of their own. However, even though standard BMWs are often built with high performance and eccentric looks in mind, those modified by respectable tuning companies are usually much more impressive in all regards.
A fine example is this BMW M235i RS by Tuningwerk, which received a generous selection of improvements aesthetically and power-wise. In terms of looks, this awesome BMW features a special body kit made out of carbon fiber, which includes a large rear wing, a rear diffuser and a new front lip spoiler. Other highlights involve a set of 18-inch forged alloy wheels complemented by Dunlop SportMaxx tires and a very impressive braking system that was definitely necessary considering the improvements made under the hood.
Speaking of power, we can tell you that the BMW M235i RS’ 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder engine received a brand new cooling system as well as a sports exhaust and an aluminum oil pan. Various other tweaks eventually allowed this beast to dish out 442 lb-ft of torque as well as 444 horsepower – a respectable increase of 110 lb-ft and 115 horsepower over the standard configuration. This newfound power guarantees quick 0-60 sprints of just 4.3 seconds, which is quite fast for a heavy and comfortable BMW. Furthermore, the driver will have all of that power at his or her fingertips, since the car was equipped with a 6-speed manual transmission and a high-performance sports clutch. Implementing these impressive modifications was not an easy or a cheap process, which is why the price tag for the Tuningwerk BMW M235i RS is $89,000.
