Hartge:

Hartge H23

The H23 was almost the same as the modified 323i Alpina C1 2.3.
Hartge took the 170 hp 2.3 liter engine and did similar modifications methods used by Alpina
A much better camshaft and cylinder head
forged pistons to raise compression to 10:1
The manifold uses usually 40mm diameter pipes for the exhaust.
The H23 also has a special cast aluminum cam cover.
The engine was given the code: MB9E

7.6 J x 16 “Hartge 11 spoke with 195/50 front tires and 225/45 rear tires.
Came with Bilstein.

40%  Limited slip differential and stronger Anti roll bars were options, but all cars
had polished strut braces labled Hartge.
Inside: Hartge emblems on the instruments. 4 spoke Momo steering wheel Hartge.
Many cars had Hartge Body Kit, including front and rear spoilers and side skirts.
Unlike Alpina, Hartge was willing to sell complete Bodykits and Motors separately.

Hartge H26 (323i)

This modification took the 323i even further with 190hp.
The car is almost the same as the H23, but with a capacity increase.Based on the MB10E engine cylinder block it was fitted with a 525d 323i crankshaft and associated connecting rods with special pistons. Like Alpina gave it a cc to 2554cc. The H26 (323i) using a compression ratio of 10:1 and a 3,45:1 or 3,25:1 limited slip differentials. Hartge anti-roll bars were standard on the H26

0-100 kph in 7 seconds it was a 2.5L stroker essentially with 190hp


Hartge H26 (325i)

Based on the 325i, the conversion is very similar to the H23,
wheels, steering wheel, instruments, emblems and engine work. But this time
Hartge has been kept on the cylinder head, has a hotter camshaft,
the exhaust manifold, and ECU re-programmed.
Power had been screwed to the standard 170 HP 190PK. Engine code was: MB16E.
Final ratio was 3,64:1, Tyre sizes 195/50 front and rear.

Hartge H27

Hartge did like the Alpina C2 2.7 a 2.7 conversion,
although it is not known whether there is a standard diesel or 2.7 ETA camshaft used.
Power was 210 hp with a compression ratio 10,2:1. The rest of the car was a typical Hartge conversion, although the H27 has 205/50 tires.
Engine Code: MB18E

Hartge H27 SP

With a special induction system for the M20 with a Ferrari-like intake manifold,
<Where each cylinder had its own throttle, individual throttle bodies>
Power was at 220 HP with 6400rpm. No specific engine code.

Hartge H28

Ill let the picture talk:

Hartge H35

Another crazy creation, this was the standard E30 body with the 250 hp 3.5 liter M30.
Not as fast as the Alpina B6 3.5, but with a typical frame and 296mm rotors Hartge,
still a high quality car.

Hartge H35-24

A car for the fools among us! With a standard E30 body,
but with the s38b35 from the e24 M6 and e28 M5 – 286 hp, very fast! Maybe too fast,

1 of 6:

AC SCHNITZER ACS3

  • 0-60 7.2sec
  • Top Speed 150mph
  • HP 220
  • Weight 2600lbs

    great blog, it really is hard to find info on the various non traditional models. I own a 1987 BMW E30 (Hartge) perhaps you might have more info?

  3. ralph on September 11, 2010 at 1:43 am

    Thanks for the info, very useful. I own a 1988 325i and doing restoration work on it now

    I own an original German LHD 1985 Hartge H28 which was imported into the UK in 2007 from Japan, i’ve been trying to locate another one since i’ve owned it but all i can find on the net is my own car! (seriously). It must be a rare old thing but surely there must be another one out there i.e the one in the brochure! Mine is a 2 door Alpine white pre-facelift car. Perhaps someone reading this might know of another? Adam
