Significantly more power - Shiftech BMW M235i with 401PS & 604NM

The N55B30 six-cylinder in-line engine with bi-turbo in the BMW M235i F22 already delivers impressive 326PS & 450NM torque ex works. That is enough to catapult the approx. 1.550kg light coupe in the all-wheel drive version and with automatic transmission (8-speed automatic) to a speed of 4,6km / h in just 100 seconds. Acceleration values ​​that a 400PS strong BMW E39 M5 can only dream of and that is in a 2-series BMW on the 2 floors below the top model in the form of the F87 M2. Crazy world and impressive to see how far the technology has developed. But as is the case with everyday use, a change has to be made at some point. Nowadays everyday life in particular requires more variety and joy. What is meant is tingling joy that begins when you get into your car in the morning as a proud car owner. Anyone who does not see their loyal and expensive companion merely as an everyday object would therefore like to want a little more power in the drive train. It doesn't matter whether you drive a car with a conventional three-cylinder engine or even call a V8 your own - the desire for an increase in performance is often well-founded, even if you as the vehicle owner only superficially know about tuning. This BMW M235i F22 owner, who had his coupe professionally upgraded, apparently harbored the same thoughts and wishes.

Significantly more power - Shiftech BMW M235i with 401PS & 604NM

And who do you think he hired to do the tuning? - It is no secret that Shiftech Lyon is known far beyond the regional area of ​​activity for performance increases on vehicles of all kinds, which even on vehicles that are already very powerful at the factory provide a clearly noticeable increase in performance.

Chiptuning & M-Performance Parts

At the moment the said M235i is published on the website of Shiftech Lyon, whose successful increase in performance we do not want to withhold from you. As already mentioned, the M235i originally had 326PS & 450NM torque, which thanks to modern tuning technology became a whopping 401PS & 604NM torque. This is undoubtedly a performance boost that will astonish owners of the same vehicle model with series performance when the car unfolds its full power and leaves the competition behind. Shiftech does not provide much more information on tuning the potent coupe on its website, but the published figures alone are convincing.
