Hartmann has released a tuning kit for the fifth generation of the Volkswagen Transporter (T5).

They are collaborating with VANSPORTS to offer a power boost for the 2.0-liter TDI engine which gets its output increased from 140 bhp (104 kW) and 340 Nm (251 lb-ft) to 166 bhp (124 kW) and 395 Nm (291 lb-ft). A similar kit is available for the 2.0-liter BiTDI mill which lifts output from the series 179 bhp (133 kW) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) to 212 bhp (158 kW) and 460 Nm (339 lb-ft).

Aside from the additional oomph, the T5 has gained a stainless steel sports exhaust system with 2x80mm tailpipes on the right side, along with sport springs which have lowered the vehicle by 35mm. Other changes include a custom front spoiler, rocker panels, rear skirt, brushed aluminum door sill plates, bespoke floor mats and aluminum pedals. As a final touch, Hartmann installed 20-inch VEST-3 alloy wheels shod in 275/35 R20 tires.
