Back in 2010, German tuner Hamann announced theTycoon EVO M program for the BMW X6 M. Now that BMW has officially revised the X6 M , Hamann saw fit to give its own Tycoon program its own share of upgrades.
The program, now called Tycoon II, takes the updates even further by transforming the X6 M into a real bonafide beast. The most impressive job was made under the hood where the tuner managed to increase the SUV’s standard output to a total of 670 horsepower, a significant increase from the standard 555 horsepower.
To achieve the modifications it aimed for, Hamman installed a sport kit HM 670 that includes catalytic converter pipes and optimizing the engine characteristics. Next to delivering more power, these upgrades also increased the peak torque from 501 pound-feet up to 700 pound-feet. With the extra power and torque the X6 M can now hit a top speed of 186 mph.

BMW X6 Tycoon II M by Hamann in Details
If the standard X6 M is not looking aggressive enough for you, then the Tycoon II M is the perfect solution for you. It adds a new bumper spoiler with low dual lips and integrated LED daytime running lights.
The upgrades continue with specially designed side skirts, a specially designed rear silence and two spoilers, one installed at the edge of the rear lid and one on top of the roof. With these upgrades, Hamann is ensuring near turbulence-free aerodynamics and superior power output at maximum speeds.
As usual, Hamann is also offering a net set of wheels and customers can choose between either 23-inch ultra-light forged rims in the Unique Forged "Anodized" design or 22-inch in Anniversary "Evo Black Line" design.
Upgrades continue on the interior where Hamann decided to offer a sport steering wheel in three-spoke design made of black leather; Alcantara applications, a 12-part visible carbon set that decorates the instrument panel, door trims, front and rear center consoles.
After a major operation, the BMW X6 M metamorphoses into the HAMANN TYCOON II M
BMW tweaked some of the X6 (type E71) appearance. However, this discreet facelift was by far not enough for HAMANN. The customisation specialist from the German
town of Laupheim put on his surgical gloves and doesn’t stop the comprehensive treatment until the SUV deserves its new name: The HAMANN TYCOON II M.
The difference can be seen from afar: The HAMANN Widebody kit presents the SUV with the Coupé contour an aggressive road presence. The bumper spoiler with its low dual lips and the integrated LED daytime running lights, is proof that the new character wasn’t placed with brute force, but the existing BMW gene was fused with the typical HAMANN DNA. It gives the impression that the circular LED parking lights of the BMW facelift are naturally adapted to the HAMANN body kit and harmoniously integrated.
A broad tailor-made suit for the TYCOON II M
The contour lines of the HAMANN TYCOON II M flow seamlessly from the new front wings across specially designed side skirts into the broader body that consists of six pieces and continues around the rear wheels to the centre rear panel. It houses the black or silver anodised tail pipe panels of the specially designed rear silencer. Two spoilers, one installed at the edge of the rear lid and one on top of the roof, ensure near turbulence-free aerodynamics and superior power output at maximum speeds. According to its style, not only is the body size increased but so are the tyres. Rather than using production-type 20-inch tyres, the HAMANN TYCOON II M – that is also lowered by 40 mm – is now sitting on 11x23 and 12x23 inch, ultra-light forged rims in the Unique Forged "Anodized" design with 315 mm wide high-performance tyres all around. Alternatively, the rim design Anniversary "Evo Black Line", measuring 10.5 x 22 inch and 12 x 22 inch with tyres in 295/30 and 335/25 are available.
670 HP accelerate the Bimmer to 300 km/h
The motivation to put this type of boots onto the HAMANN TYCOON II M is based on the car’s irrepressible power. There is a reason why the air intakes are integrated into the engine hood which is, by the way, manufactured from black 100% carbon. The HAMANN emblem underneath the two-part engine cover, which is made from visual
carbon fibre, points to the new performance data. The sport kit HM 670 consists of catalytic converter pipes, optimising the engine characteristics of the production-type Motronics and uncovers the 250 km/h speed limit. This increases the standard power of 555 HP (408 kW) to 670 HP (493 kW). The torque of 680 Nm reaches now a
maximum of 950 Nm, and you can accelerate up to 300 km/h. HAMANN recommends the use of LIQUI MOLY high-performance engine oils.
The metamorphosis continues with the transformation of the interior design
This complete changeover is evidenced not only by the speedometer dial that now displays a speed of 320 km/h. In fact, the driver enters into a totally revamped interior that features air bag sport steering wheel in three-spoke design made of black leather; Alcantara applications, the HAMANN emblem, a 12-part visible carbon set that decorates the instrument panel, door trims, front and rear centre consoles, as well as a selection lever for automatic drive. The illuminated scuff plates made of brushed stainless steel can be found on all four doors. The black anodised aluminium pedal cluster creates the final touch of the new design.
The engineers and designers of the TYCOON II M have proven once again what makes the company so renowned. Traditionally, the HAMANN designers, who seem to be in love with every detail they create, turned the BMW X6 M into a greater ruler.
