Arrow Tuningwerk Taxi ride(s) Nordschleife Nürburgring GP

We ride in Tuningwerk's 1M and M235i on the Nordschleife Nürburgring GP courses...


Recently our friend's over at Tuningwerk.de asked me IF I would like to come to the Nordschleife to sample some of their products. I asked if they were kidding... because this is like CHRISTMAS DAY to any car (loving)guy!! Why sure, I would LOVE to come! A few days later I found myself in the pit paddock of Nordschleife Grand Prix course. A great place to be! Tuningwerk brought their 720 Hp 1M and their 444 Hp M235i. You might remember their M235i from this thread...

First Look and Taste of the Tuningwerk M235i Beast
http://www.2addicts.com/forums/showthread.php?t=978175



When I traveled to Nürburgring, I asked a friend of mine @Swadeness and fellow Euro 1Addict to join me. We both had no idea how Epic this day would be for both of us! The guys at Tuningwerk could not have been nicer to us. And their drivers really did not hold back on the driving. In fact I was not really prepared on how brutal it would be. Its quite eye opening.

I have been to numerous HPDE in the states. And we both have been to the 'Ring on many occasions before driving out on own cars or as a passenger in a 'Ring Taxi(F10 M5), but NOTHING will prepare you for a ride(!) in a race spec car on the 'Ring. The G's you pull, not just lateral but positive and negative is really mind blowing. For myself the neg to pos G's going thru Adenau was a really weird feeling. On my ride in their 1M I saw just over 303 kph on the straights. And the oil temp never rose over 120' C(middle of) the oil temp gauge.

My first ride was in the 730 PS 1M driven by Hannes Mahler - and WHAT a ride it was! Just going into that first hair pin turn on the Grand Prix section... on tv it looks dead flat... but in real life it sweeps down hill into the apex, then just before it, the road drops further down, then it gets a little bit bumpy. But Hannes knew that... and he just aimed the little 1M for the apex, then slid the car sideways and let the semi-slicks do the rest! It was awesome! We were clearly in THE fastest car at the 'Ring. By a large margin. As one guy from the team said; "...with the M235i your fast... you can take(pass) 85% of the cars out there(on the track)... it's a beast. But with the 1M... you ARE the fastest(!) and it IS a BEAST! You are the king!!" ...And you know what... he couldn't have been more right!!!


Hannes Mahler was the driver for the 1M...











After our last story on Tuningwerk.de's cars - a lot of people asked me which engine parts were modified and how much does it cost. Both cars were tuned to use German pump gas, not race gas! Normally that's 98 octane SuperPlus but it is possible to buy Shell V-Max 100 or Aral Ultimate 102 octane fuel - so that's what these cars were tuned to run on. Bellow is all the technical details for both cars... if you guys have any questions just ask and I will try to answer them.

Garage List
2009 135i  [5.00]
Both cars are amazing, and FAST!! At the last SportAuto Tuner GP held at Hockenheim Grand Prix Circuit, both cars came in 2nd (1M) and 3rd (M235i) in their competition group at the event. Using the "Kleiner Kurs" which SportAuto magazine uses to test all the cars, the M235i with cold tires and having survived a damage to the suspension the day prior in free practice, posted a 1:11.4 to place it 3rd in it's class where it was behind the Tuningwerk's 1M and an Audi TTRS from APR.

During free practice the 1M posted a 1:10.8 placing it at 10th out of 46 entries in the event. The closest M235i was from Versus Performance posting a 1:14 around the track in practice and they were no where close to either Tuningwerk car. Manhart came to play but left that Friday after posting a 1:15.5 in practice. Reason why they left is unknown.

The lap in the 1M was breathtaking! I watched it while holding my laptop at an angle so the track was straight. I don't know how you didn't piss your pants several times!

What's better than 'awesome'??? i need a thesaurus!

Very interesting write-up, thanks for that.

Great to see a tuner takes both those cars to the max, meaning not for dragracing but on a real road course.

I believe that both engines are entirely built, aren't they? For the 1M I'm sure about this, but I assume that also applies to the M 235i.

65K € is quite something, you can get an entire sportscar for that price...but then not everyone would necessarily need all components anyhow. Does make me think however that the circle of potential customers will be rather small.

Yes, I believe that's correct. Both motors are "built". The TW guys told me that N55's starting from the 435i and 235i are made from better parts. ie not cheap cast pistons like used in past N55's. But still... you can't really go beyond the 410 PS level without getting into the engine. Their 730 PS 1M monster has 30K of track use without any internal engine work. That's quite something I think.
