2012 BMW 6-Series by Hamann

The last time we saw German tuner Hamann work on a BMW 6-Series was at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show when they presented their program for the 6-Series Convertible . Since then, the German automaker has come out and released the 6-Series Coupe and lo and behold, Hamann followed suit with their first styling package for the luxury BMW.

For the 6-Series Coupe, Hamann worked on fitting it with a comprehensive styling package that, while not as outlandish as some of their past programs, still casts a distinctive styling that makes it stand out from the rest of the pack.

The aerodynamic kit starts off with a new front bumper that comes with LED lights, a new rear bumper with an integrated diffuser and quad tail pipes, new side skirts, and a rear spoiler. On top of that, Hamann also fitted the 6-Series with a new set of 20" or 21" forged split-rim cross-spoke wheels with titanium screws, progressive sport springs that effectively cut the height of the 6-Series by 30mm in the front and 25mm in the rear, and a new catback exhaust system with four 90mm round stainless-steel exhaust tips.

The interior of the 6-Series was also modified, albeit not as much as the exterior. Of the few changes, the things that stand out are the steering wheel, the pedals, and the Hamann badging.

No mechanical upgrades were mentioned, which means that you can expect the program to still carry the 6-Series Coupe’s 4.4-liter V-8 engine that produces 400 horsepower and 450 lb/ft of torque.

The consecutive modification of this has done it good.

The change they made is for better of course. Was there any car changed for the worst? Well, ask the Fornasari Gigi.

Hamann kept changing this for the better.

What are the changes again in the 6-series? I noticed that there were a lot of changes made since Hamann created it.

Did it get a wider track? It seems huge for me.

Did Hamann lower it? It’s probably going to have a sportier run.

I didn’t expect Hamann to add an aerodynamic kit to it seeing this is only a plain sedan. Well, it’s a good thing that this can to give a sleek ride to its passengers because of the resistance-free run.

I was concerned about its low suspension too, but I guess it supports a more competitive performance.

I’m having trouble looking at its suspension. It seems to be awkward. I hope it doesn’t affect its performance.

It doesn’t look good at all; is this what Hamann calls a tuning?

It honestly looks weird, and I’m referring to its lower parts. Is Hamann next in line to Mansory in terms of badly modifying exteriors?
