Remember the Hamann Victory revealed back in 2007? Well, the tuner is now ready to bring out an updated version of that package with the Victory II based off of the latest Gallardo LP560-4 . This newest package includes engine upgrades as well as exterior and interior modifications, but the best part is that it looks as menacing as it does in its matte black attire.
Since the new Victory carries the same name as the original, one would think that many of the same additions would still hold. Well, one would be wrong. This new tuned up Gallardo features some distinct characteristics that it can call its very own, including a new front apron, new side skirts, a newly designed rear wing, and much more. A power boost is also new to Hamann’s latest plaything with a jump of 20hp from the standard Gallardo engine.
Overall, this car just looks sick, and in a very good way.
Hit the jump to get all of the information for the new Hamann Victory II, as well as the press release.
Exterior and Interior
As we said before, this new Victory gets a completely new treatment than its older sibling. The new Victory II has a new front apron in a Race design that replaces the wide body apron from the first version. The front apron also receives a center carbon part to further differentiate it. The Gallardo still gets the back fender extensions, but will also receive new fenders for the front. Extended side skirts join the pack, as does an air inlet on the roof, a new diffuser, and a newly designed rear wing. This new rear wing is available in either fiber glass or carbon fiber. The whole package is finished by a new set of 20 inch Edition Race rims with a special varnish. The recommended wheel/tire combination for these new rims is 9.5Jx20 inches with 235/30ZR20 tires at the front and 13Jx20 rims with 325/25ZR20 tires at the back.
The interior sees updates in the form of a 14 part carbon set. This set includes decorative blends (whatever that is), a steering wheel, and door openers. Sitting in the Victory II is made even more pleasant with the new Hamann sports seats with carbon backs.
To further the experience, Hamann is also offering some customizable options like personalized floormats and a full leather equipment package.
The look of this car may lead anyone to believe that a monster lives under the hood, and they’d be right, but it’s just not the monster we would have anticipated. The Hamann Victory II carries the Gallardo’s same V10 engine, but with adjusted engine electronics to gain about 20 more horsepower. The engine can now deliver a total of 580 hp and 575 NM of torque. Top speed has been increased to 203 mph.
Great tuning packages for the Lamborghini Gallardo tend to come out of the woodwork just about every day. In fact, just a few days back we heard about the Lamborghini Gallardo LP 620 YarroW by Wheelsandmore and instantly fell in love with the boost to 620hp. Hamann’s Victory II doesn’t quite make it to that level of supreme speed, but there is just something about the look of this car that screams for us to take it seriously. There’s also something about the yellow color of the Gallardo by Wheelsandmore that makes us want to call Elmo to see if he needs a ride.
When Can I Get One?
The new Hamann Victory II will be available in 2011.
HAMANN already presented the super sports car Victory based on the first Lamborghini Gallardo. With the latest Gallardo LP560-4, now also the new HAMANN Victory II is introduced. The car body becomes broader and the engine performance as well as the amount of carbon parts is significantly increased.
And what is the most essential part of a Lamborghini? Right, it is the wing doors. And nobody really knows why the Gallardo is not equipped with them straight away. HAMANN offers these for the Victory II. In addition, they offer an entire refinement of the original body design which starts with a new front apron in Race-design with a centre carbon part. With new fenders in the front and fender extensions in the back, the Victory II renders an even more remarkable appearance. Also, the extended side skirts and the air inlet on the roof – available in carbon as well – confirm this impression. The back of the car is enhanced by a diffuser and a newly designed rear wing which pushes the car onto the road at high speeds. HAMANN offers the rear wing either in fibre glass or the ultra light and persistent carbon. On top of that, a carbon layer can be applied to the bonnet.
HAMANN equips the Victory II with 20 inch Edition Race rims with a special varnish in order to emphasize the new dynamic look. At the same time, the reduced unsprung masses improve the handling and the acceleration and braking response. The recommended wheel/tyre combination is 9.5Jx20 inches with 235/30ZR20 tyres at the front and 13Jx20 rims with 325/25ZR20 tyres at the back.
By adjusting the engine electronics, HAMANN squeezes additional performance out of this Italian stallion, increasing its power to 427 kW/580 hp with a maximum torque of 575 Newton metres. Therefore, the HAMANN Victory II reaches an impressive 328 km/h top speed.
The impressive V10-Sound turns even more remarkable by applying an end muffler to the serial end pipes.
The interior of the HAMANN Victory II is enhanced by a 14-part carbon set which includes decorative blends, the steering wheel and the door openers. The HAMANN-sports seats with the carbon back render a perfect seating position. If desired, the HAMANN upholstery department can offer anything to make the customers’ hearts beat faster. Personalised floor mats or entire leather equipment, everything is handmade by master craftsmen. Individually designed for you and fitted to your car by experts.
