2008 Hartge Hunter news, pictures, and information
HARTGE HUNTER splendour X3 as expertly off-road vehicleAs a successful race driver and team manager on the international stage, Herbert Hartge applies motor sports technology know-how into each of his BMW-based vehicles. The reason a racy all-wheel-drive vehicle is now fully suitable for hunting on even the most challenging terrain situations, lies not only in the fact that hes able to fall back on a wealth of gathered rallye sport experience: Herbert is truly an avid and passionate hunter.
The modified X3 renders his passion. As HÚNTER it embodies a fine sleek manner of moving expertly and stylishly over rough and smooth. The necessary ground clearance of 23 cm is provided by longer spring/damper units, additional front spacer blocks and very good all-terrain-pneus (255/55 R 18) which are mounted on HARTGEs CLASSIC 2 light alloy wheels. A considerable larger angle of driving slope (for example 31 instead of 23.9 at the front) and an improved ramp angle made possible despite the use of a continuous solid underbody skid plate made of stainless steel forgiving even hard hits of the ground, predestine the HÚNTER for the hunting-ground, in which its off-road tyre patterns leave impressive footprints. Thanks to a shortened axle drive ratio, an excellent traction and an increased torque, the 3.0d - whose Common-Rail-engine HARTGE pushed to 253 bhp (compared to 218 bhp in the production X3) clambers up slopes up to 48. Further terrain capabilities are certified wîth a wading depth of 50 cm and a axle articulation index of 63 percent.
The full range of HARTGE performance enhancements naturally extend to the version for the bhp-spoiled hunters society. In the 3.0sd 335hp/246 kW (factory 283 hp/210 kW) blow the mort through the hunting horn. The power-plus is gained through tuning of the electronic control unit (ECÚ): within technical territories tuner HARTGE is already a famous hunting authority.
Automatic differential locks on both axles ease the HÚNTERs ability to stalk through difficult terrain. Stainless steel grating protects and guards the radiator from damage due to thick underbrush or rocks.
In addition to many practical accessories, which include washable Sensatec seat covers, customers requests for the green look will be fulfilled: from a sports §teering wheel made from green leather/maple, a speedometer wîth green instrument dial, leather interior through to a trunk mat in the same colour. Although not being designed for being a work animal like the Land Rover Defender, the X3 offers enough space for hunting gear including a tub for carrying the game.
Again, this X3 clearly demonstrates its supremacy on off-road terrain. HARTGEs HÚNTER enriches the hunting scene as an off-road vehicle, which in contrast to the British Landy or German G-Class cuts a fine figure onroad as well wîth speeds up to 210 km/h (dependent upon tyre manufacturer).Source - Hartge
