Sport Auto's Christian Gebhardt recently tested at Hockenheim a BMW M135i tuned by Versus Performance.

The six-cylinder, 3.0-liter engine received a power boost from 320 HP (235 kW) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) to 390 HP (287 kW) and 550 Nm (405 lb-ft). The high-performance coupe was also fitted with a KW Clubsport suspension and a Bastuck exhaust system. It was riding on 9x18 ATS Motorsport wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires measuring 265/35 R18.

While the stock BMW M135i can do a lap of the small circuit in Hockenheim in 1:15.7, the version modified by Versus Performance can do it in 1:13.5, making it just as fast as an M3 CSL. During testing, Christian was able to reach a top speed of 259 km/h (161 mph), whereas the standard model has an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). Furthermore, 0-100 km/h arrived in 4.6 seconds (stock 5.1) and 0-200 km/h in 16.1 (stock about 2 seconds slower).
