Sport Auto’s Christian Gebhardt takes a tuned BMW M135i to the Hockenheim race track. The M135i was tuned by Versus Performance and it provides a first taste at what the tuning scene is about to get in the coming years.

The German tuner gave 384 hp to the M135i which now runs a lap time of 1:13.5 minutes at Hockenheim, only six tenths of a second slower than the 1M Coupe.

A new set of sports suspensions from KW were fitted to the car at 1,799 euros for the Variant 3 and 2,499 euros for the KW Clubsport Coilovers 2-Way.
