Hartge Hunter based on BMW X3


As a successful race driver and team manager on the international stage, Herbert Hartge applies motor sports technology know-how into each of his BMWbased vehicles. The reason a racy allwheel- drive vehicle is now fully suitable for hunting on even the most challenging terrain situations, lies not only in the fact that he is able to fall back on a wealth of gathered rally sport experience; Herbert is truly an avid and passionate hunter. The modified X3 renders his passion. As a hunter it embodies a fine sleek manner of moving expertly and stylishly over rough and smooth terrain. The necessary ground clearance of 23 cm is provided by longer spring/damper units, additional front spacer blocks and very good all-terrain tyres (255/55 R 18) which are mounted on the Hartge Classic light alloy wheels. A considerable larger angle of driving and an improved ramp angle is possible despite the use of a continuous solid underbody skid plate made of stainless steel forgiving even hard hits of the ground.

Thanks to a shortened axle drive ratio, an excellent traction and an increased torque enables it to expertly climb up to 48 degrees. Further terrain capabilities are certified with a wading depth of 50 cm and a axle articulation index of 63 percent. 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 steering wheel made from green leather/maple, a speedometer with green instrument dial and leather interior through to a trunk mat in the same colour. Although not 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.
