REMUS Gives New BMW 2-series M235i More Sound, Power and Performance

REMUS BMW F22 Street Race 2014 Rear REMUS Gives New BMW 2 series M235i More Sound, Power and PerformanceMore power and torque at less weight: REMUS has developed a sport exhaust system for the new BMW 2-series coupe M235i. The company’s sound experts coax not only the distinctive sonorous-aggressive roar typical for REMUS from the 3.0-liter BMW engine, but also extra power. The power increases from 318.4 to 331.5 hp, while the torque climbs from 441.3 to 460.2 Nm. At the same time, the system is more than 3 kg lighter.

With the two-part cat-back front silencer, a sport silencer as well as two tailpipe sets, REMUS provides a perfect-fit solution for the current top model in the F22 series (from construction year 2014). “New Wolf Inside”: This is the manufacturer’s marketing slogan for its new developments. The innovative sport exhaust systems feature all-round shot-blasted surfaces, and thrill with an even more aggressive sound plus lighter-weight construction. That is partly down to thinner, yet equally strong walls. The more aggressive sound is generated by a new internal design of the silencers. The fully shot-blasted surfaces made from stainless steel with aerodynamic optimized inner workings guarantee long life and consistent sound. (more…)

Hidden behind the highly promising type designation is a vehicle conversion of the highest order with a good number of high-end and carefully thought-through elements of individualization.
