Kelleners Sport BMW 5 Series Touring packs a 360kW punch

How’s this for a cool wagon. The Kelleners Sport BMW 5 Series Touring package can be had in twin-turbo V8 petrol or turbo-diesel guise, featuring a range of aerodynamic and mechanical revisions.

For the Kelleners BMW 535d Touring, the standard 230kW 3.0-litre turbo-diesel is tuned to produce a very decent 277kW of power and 756Nm of torque. This should be enough to bring the factory 0-100k/h time down from 5.7 seconds to at least low in the 5.0-seconds range.

If you don’t fancy diesel, the Kelleners BMW 550i Touring might be more to your liking. It features a tuned version of the factory 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 engine, taking power from the original rating of 300kW, to a hard-hitting 360kW of power and 720Nm of torque.

To ensure the Kelleners Sport 5 Series stays straight and true at all times, the company can fit a full sports suspension kit which lowers the car by around 30mm. This not only provides a compliant ride, but also makes sure the Kelleners alloy wheels sit nicely in the arches.

At least two alloy wheel sizes are on offer, including an offset 19 x 8.5-inch front and 19 x 9.5-inch rear, or up a size to 20 x 9-inch front and 20 x 10-inch rear. The ‘Hamburg’ and ‘Berlin’ wheel designs can be had in various colours too, including graphite silver, matt black, an polished platinum silver.

To top if all off, the Kelleners Sport BMW 5 Series Touring showcases a discreet bodykit with new front and rear bumper bars, a front spoiler, side skirts, and a neat rear diffuser.

The 5 Series is already a great steer. With these options, performance and styling is amped up without losing the original practicality of the wagon. Bring on the M5 wagon.
