Here we have a classic on our hands, a 1999–2003 BMW Z8 roadster fixed up by the guys at Senner Tuning. The German based aftermarket company decided to give a small performance package to increase the numbers even further. Stock, the BMW Z8 holds the E39 M5 5.0-liter V8 engine that produces 400 horsepower and 500 Nm of torque. With the Senner Tuning additions of a new air filter, custom exhaust, and ECU tune to bring it all together, new figures show 450 HP and 535 Nm of torque. While these modifications weren’t really necessary, the small sports car can now hit a top speed in excess of 300 km/h or 186 mph.
A new package for the BMW X6 xDrive40d has been released by the German shop Senner Tuning. The sporty crossover received the works with new performance upgrades along with styling to boot. Starting at the engine bay, the straight six turbocharged diesel found in the BMW X6 received a new air filter and ECU remapping to increase the numbers. After the ECU tune, output jumped from 306 HP and 600 Nm to 336 horsepower and 665 Nm of torque.
Senner Tuning has released their latest take on the Opel Astra that received some new styling and performance modifications for the 1.4-liter turbo petrol engine. Senner started off with a new BMC sport air filter, sport exhaust system and wrapped them together with a revised ECU. This allows the custom Opel Astra to produce 165 horsepower and 250 Nm of torque. Quite an increase from the stock 140 HP and 200 Nm of torque. On the exterior of the small sporty hatch is a styling kit comprised of a matte black Steinmetz front grille, new front lip, side skirts, rear diffuser, and roof spoiler.
With the recent success of the Audi Q5 SUV, tuners from around the world including Senner have released new kits for the 2.0-liter TDI turbo diesel powerplant. Senner Tuning started with their ECU upgrade, sport air filters, and custom exhaust system to boost the numbers. The Audi Q5 figures have increased from 170 hp and 350 Nm of torque to 213 horsepower and 445 newton meters of torque with these upgrades.
German car tuning company Senner has revealed a minor kit for the 3.0 TDI Audi A7 Sportback model. Under the hood, the 3.0-liter diesel engine has been boosted to 306 PS and 620 Nm of torque. These numbers are up from the factory 245 PS and 500 Nm of torque. Most of this power increase comes from an ECU tune and a new stainless steel exhaust system with 90 mm tips. Senner Tuning then jumped up the V-Max limiter on the Audi A7 Sportback to a top speed of 280 km/h. This allows the sport sedan a little more freedom on the German autobahns. Final modifications include a 30 mm drop for the air-suspension setup, and Varianza T1S rims measuring 20×9.5 and wrapped in 275/35R20 tires all around.
