Benno Senner of Senner Tuning AG, Ingelheim, and his crew have released their take on the BMW Z8 sports car.
The 5.0 liter V8 engine was fitted with a sports air filter set. Then parameter adjustment followed, including the exhaust system balancing featuring a welded exhaust manifold with a stainless steel silencer and flame tubes designed with metal catalysts. This all adds 50hp to the stock 400hp and a total amount of 535Nm. The increase enabled the tuner to raise the maximal possible speed to over 300km/h.
The wheel-tire combination added to the Z8 are Work Schwert SC1 wheels in Diamond Black varnish with an anodized 9×19 and 10×19 inch chrome outer rims, and Continental Sport Contact 5P 255/40R19 and 285/35R19 tires. To compensate for the fact that RunFlat tires were mounted on non-emergency run-flat wheels, the tool kit was complemented with a tire-repair set and a compressor. A glance through the wheel provides a view of Racing Gold varnished brake calipers.
In addition to the coilover suspension Variant 2 Inox-Line with an adjustable rebound, a strut bar was installed on the reinforced shock mount in the front in order to stabilize the front end.
