The BMW 5-Series doesn’t exactly scream speed, but that’s not really its job anyway, right? Luxury is typically the name of its game, but Kelleners Sport wants to hear nothing about that. Their latest tuning package puts a little pep in the sedan’s step with an engine modification and some exterior mods. It’s not exactly a BMW M5 , but it will do for the 9-5ers.
Kelleners Sport has improved on the luxury vehicle with a new KS Power35 module for the BMW 535i that increases the engine’s performance from 306 HP to 367 HP. The peak torque has also been raised from 400 to 480 NM. Like we said, not excessive speed, but it will get the job done.
The aerodynamic package improves the look of the exterior by adding a front apron extension with integrated LED daytime running lights, an RS front spoiler lip, side mouldings, a rear spoiler and rear apron extension with diffuser, and a stainless steel rear silencer with round dual tailpipes. Wheels for this ride can be chosen from 19- or 20" and are available in Matte Black, Polished Graphite Silver, and Polished Platinum Silver. Performance springs have also been utilized to lower the vehicle’s ride height by 30 millimeters.
The interior of the BMW 5-series was mostly left untouched except for the addition of black velour floor mats featuring the Kelleners Sport logo and aluminum pedals.
Press release after the jump.
Kelleners Sport is back. The BMW specialist is making an impressive comeback with the refined BMW 535i (F10 model), whose world premiere will be at the stand of tyre partner Vredestein in Hall 3 at the 2010 Essen Motor Show.
Kelleners Sport’s motor racing roots can be seen in the car’s athletic aerodynamics package, consisting of front apron extension with integrated LED daytime running lights, RS front spoiler lip, side mouldings, rear spoiler and rear apron extension with diffuser. The car’s sporty aspirations are shown too by the stainless steel rear silencer with round dual tailpipes, which flank the diffuser at both the right and left sides.
The increased engine power of the new BMW 5-series from Kelleners underscores the car’s look. The KS Power35 module boosts the car’s engine power from 306 hp (225 kW) to 367 hp (270 kW) and raises its maximum torque from 400 to 480 Newton metres.
Thanks to its performance springs, the BMW is now 30 millimetres lower, allowing it to achieve considerably improved driving dynamics. The light weight of the "Hamburg" allow wheels developed by Kelleners Sport contributes to the car’s improved performance too. 9x20 inch and 10x20 inch wheels on the front and rear axles respectively perform their duties with the help of the high-performance size 255/35 and 285/30 tyres they are encapsulated in. Alternatively, the wheels are available in their 15-spoke design in sizes 8.5x19 and 9.5x19 inches. Both the 19 and 20 inch versions come in Matt Black, Polished Graphite Silver and Polished Platinum Silver finishes.
In addition, Kelleners Sport has developed the innovative "Berlin" wheel design, where the five upper double spokes are a different colour from the five lower ones. The wheel surface is available in Matt Black, Polished Matt Black or Polished Graphite Silver for both the 19 inch and 20 inch versions.
In the car’s interior, the individual refinements create an exclusive ambience. These include the black velours foot mats featuring the Kelleners Sport logo as well as the aluminium pedals complete with footrest.
These individual features can of course be ordered separately too.
With the refined BMW 535i, Kelleners Sport is clearly leading the way into the future. With its impressive refinements, the BMW specialist will in future imbue all models from the Munich-based car manufacturer with sporty elegance.
