Default Racing Dynamics Preparing 2011 BMW 5-Series (F10) Tuning Program

Racing Dynamics Preparing 2011 BMW 5-Series (F10) Tuning Program-rdf10.jpg

"German tuners Racing Dynamics have released their initial plans for tuning the next-gen BMW 5-Series F10. The company plans to give performance and aero modifications to both the 2011 550i and the 535i.

The twin-turbo V8 used in the 550i will be boosted by a staggering 52% to 620-horsepower. With this kind of power, performance brakes with discs capable of 800 degrees Celsius will definitely be used, as will a sport-suspension and rear-locking differential. An increase in torque was not disclosed for this engine, but speed will top out at 340 km/h (211.2 mph) according to BMWblog.com.

A 34% horsepower increase will be given to the 535i, bringing output up to 410-horsepower and a beefy 530 Nm of torque. This could allow for a 0-100 km/h time of 5.3 seconds. The stock 535i hits 100 km/h in 6.0.

Outside, the included rendering shows a car with a new rear diffuser incorporating quad-exhaust pipes. Sidesills look to be boxier than the originals. Light, 21-inch one-piece wheels have been confirmed.

Inside, the company promises a carbon fiber trim offered in different colors. Wood trim will also be offered."

This is the only picture that has been given so far.

The information below has been taken from another website.

"Plans so far include:

The Racing Dynamics BMW 550i R50S will boast 620hp (up from factory 407hp).

The Racing Dynamics BMW 535i R35 with its N55 single turbo inline engine will receive extra boost to produce 410hp and 383lb-ft torque, achieving 0-60 in an estimated 5.3 sec (.70 seconds faster than the factory model).

Racing Dynamics full custom exhaust system.

21" Racing Dynamics 1-piece forged lightweight wheels.

Custom suspension setup tuned for proper mating of maximum handling properties and comfort. Will lower the F10 by approximately 35mm.
2 gas struts for the front / 2 gas-pressurized shock absorbers for the rear

New rear-locking differential.

Racing Dynamics aerodynamic parts for performance and cosmetic improvements.

Custom interiors with choices of carbon fiber, exotic woods, patterns and surfaces."

Now when you're in the market for a new BMW M5, you'd think twice before buying it when you take a look at this! At least, I would!

Them 21"s! Sluurp!

Slightly off topic, but I was under the impression that Racing Dynamics is an ITALY based tuning firm? Even their website shows they are based out of Milano, Italy: Racing Dynamics S.p.A. - The Official Wordwide Site
