Shortly after the new F10 BMW 5 Series was unveiled, the Aachen based and respectable tuner, Racing Dynamics, released a photoshop of their vision of the new 5er. Following up on that, a new front-end image made its way onto the web yesterday.
Racing Dynamics’ program for the F10 5er includes both visual and technical improvements. Firs step will consist of increasing the power of the already quite powerful 550i. Powered by the V8 twin-turbo engine, the 550i normally outputs 407 horsepower, but Racing Dynamics plans to take their 550i R50S model to an incredible 620 horsepower.
Along with the substantial power increase, a new rear-locking differential, sport suspension and high performance braking system is being offered as well.
The BMW 535i follows next, dubbed R35, the Racing Dynamics model also features the new N55 single-turbo twin-scroller engine, but with a substantial power increase: 410 horsepower, up from its 306 horsepower in standard form. The maximum torque is increased to a remarkable 530Nm (383.5 lb-ft) and the 0 to 62 mph is now achieved in 5.3 seconds, seven tenths faster than the the regular model.
To adjust the acoustics to the increased potency of R50S and R35, there is also a special exhaust system installed by Racing Dynamics that has been optimized with the help of expensive tests.
The extensively revised suspension system includes two gas struts for the front axle and a pair of gas-pressurized shock absorbers for the rear. In the development process, great importance was attached to obtain in addition to high driving dynamics and comfort at an acceptable balance. The complete system ensures that the sedan sits 35 millimeters closer to road.
In addition to the driving dynamics, a great emphasis was placed on improving the braking performance – understandable at a top speed of 340 km / h for the R50S. The brake system is designed to provide fading delay and high reliability even at red-hot brake discs and brake temperature of 800 degrees Celsius. Specific weight-slotted brake discs with four-or six-piston calipers are combined.
As seen in the photshoped image above, Racing Dynamics models make use of new lightweight 21″ one-piece forged wheels.
Further details are expected to be released near the April-May time frame when first 5 Series models will reach the BMW dealerships in Europe.
