Turner Motorsport to Debut the BMW Hartge H50 V10 E90 3 Series at Bimmerfest 2007

One of the world's fastest sedans will be present in the Turner Motorsport display area at Bimmerfest in Santa Barbara, California on May 5. The Hartge H50 four-door is powered by a 550-hp V10 engine from the range-topping M5 sedan and propels it to a top speed in excess of 200mph and to 60mph in under 4.5 seconds.

The Turner Motorsport and Hartge display will be a prime attraction at Bimmerfest one of the largest BMW-only gatherings in the world. More than 3000 people are expected to visit the show, located at the Earl Warren Showgrounds in Santa Barbara. The Turner Motorsport display area will be featured in the main vendor area.

Turner Motorsport is one of North America's largest BMW-exclusive tuners, with over 5000 parts on offer to casual BMW fans and the most-serious of BMW racers alike. They are the official importer for Hartge products and automobiles for the USA and enjoy a close relationship with other German companies such as H&R and Bilstein. Turner's expertise at tuning BMWs for the street is a direct result from their success on the racing circuit. The Turner Motorsport team was won four major sports car championships in the last five years.

Hartge has been tuning BMWs since 1971 and was recognized as a small vehicle manufacturer in 1985. Hartge cars are built as new cars in their Beckingen, Germany headquarters. The H50 sedan is based on the latest E90 platform but is thoroughly transformed by the Hartge staff into a completely new model. The H50 features the 5.0-liter V10 and SMG-II transmission from the M5 but is further massaged to produce 50 more horsepower than a stock M5. Upgrades continue throughout the car to make the H50 not only one of the fastest four-doors on the planet but also one of the best-handling and balanced cars on the road.

I don't suppose that means they'll be selling them out here?
(Please let them be selling them out here; that's the first hurdle. Then I'll worry bout the cost. )
