Hamann proved today that the X5 M can do more than originally stated by BMW. Granted, most automakers don’t push the envelope when developing the number of ponies under the hood of their SUVs, but that doesn’t mean that the owners won’t want to. That is why there is a place in the world for tuners such as Hamann. Their package, called the Flash Evo M develops an incredible 610 hp and a torque of 780 Nm. And that’s just the base kit.
A standard BMW X5 M gives out 555hp, but, with a little engine optimization and the elimination of the factory-installed Vmax restriction of 155mph, that can be taken to the previously mentioned 610hp making it that much more fantastic. If that’s still not enough then Hamann is also offering an HM 670 sports kit that will increase the power even further to 670hp and 950 Nm of torque.
The exterior package includes a striking front spoiler fitted with two or four integrated LED daytime running lights, large air intakes, a carbon bonnet, additional air inlets and outlets, side sill bars, a sport exhaust system with two central tailpipes integrated into the diffuser, and a carbon roof spoiler. Customers can choose from 22 or 23 inch light alloy wheels. For the interior, Hamann offers applique made of visible carbon fiber and a stainless steel sill plate with an illuminated HAMANN logo.
As pumped as we are about the transformation provided by Hamann, it’s actually not the best we have seen for this vehicle. G-Power’s recent work on the BMW X5 M left it packing 725hp. Then there’s the obligatory matte black exterior paint job that they felt they needed to slap onto to the Beamer. Based on power alone, G-Power takes the cake. If we were to add in looks then it would be a toss-up.
After tuning the SLS AMG, Hamann has decided to take a peek at the BMW 5-Series as well. For the moment the package is only focusing on improving the car’s aerodynamic, but an engine update will be offered in the future.
The exterior package includes a front spoiler, aggressive side skirts, a rear bumper center valence, a roof-mounted spoiler, and a trunk-mounted spoiler. The tuner is also offering a lowering kit that reduces the car’s height by 35 mm. The exterior package is finished by 20" wheels, LED daytime running light inserts, and a stainless steel four-tailpipe sport exhaust system.
The interior gets a carbon fiber package for the decorative strip 2 pieced for dashboard, inside door handle covers front & rear, decorative strip 3 pieced for center console, and steering wheel cover. There is also a set of aluminum pedals and branded floor mats. Prices will be announced at a later date.
Comparing the package for the Mercedes SLS AMG and the BMW 5-Series, we think the package for the BMW is much more well-rounded than the SLS AMG’s package. Hamann has succeeded in completing the look of the BMW and making it look that much better and more expensive. This tuning package allows the 5-series to have an even cleaner and more striking appearance.
The German tuner Hamann is preparing their first tuning program for the Mercedes SLS AMG. And, like always, they started by improving the car’s aerodynamics and providing the car with a little personal touch.
For that touch, Hamann is offering a set of forged alloy wheels named Design Edition Race "Anodized", in the dimensions of 9.0Jx21 (front) and 11.0Jx21 (rear). These wheels are produced using the most modern manufacturing processes and come painted in a black matte anodized finish. Seen on these wheels are a set of titanium bolts that look suitable for the racetrack. These bolts are ultra light, stable, and corrosion resistant.
The tuner is also offering a new set of suspensions that lowers the car’s ride by 30mm. There is also a set of stainless steel exhaust system with 90mm exhaust pipes on each side. This new exhaust system offers a very sporty sound for the SLS.
Hamann released today details on their tuning package for the new BMW 5-Series GT. The tuner focused on improving both the car’s aerodynamics and performance.
The tuner started with a lowering kit and then proceeded to add a front spoiler, side skirts, and a rear spoiler in a subtle or striking design, as required to improve the car’s driving dynamics. Hamann didn’t stop there, however. They then added a new rear apron and four impressive stainless steel exhaust pipes that will make this vehicle purr like a kitten.
Under the hood the 530d model has been tuned to deliver a total of 275 Hp and an impressive 620 Nm at 1750 RPM. This is obviously an increase from the previous 245 hp and 540 Nm of torque the BMW was working with. The boost of torque will leave the BMW 530d with a 20Nm of torque advantage over the standard BMW 535d.
Not much is added to the interior. In fact, the only differences will be the pedals and footrests coming in an aluminum design and a silver HAMANN inscription added to the black foot mats. The package is finished with gigantic 22-inch tires.
This package is equally as impressive as the package delivered by AC Schnitzer back in March. The only difference is that AC Schnitzer was able to push the BMW 5 Series GT a little further in the horsepower department by taking it to 286hp. The other minor differences would be purely based on personal taste. Which do you prefer?
The tuning world is all abuzz as the Bodensee event draws nearer and nearer. We anticipate seeing some amazing tuning projects come out of the top quality exhibition where tuning professionals can get together and show off their sometimes extravagant creations.
One of the projects that will probably be unveiled at this year’s Tuning World Bodensee is Hamann’s first package for the Mercedes SLS AMG. In fact, Hamann just revealed an image today of this package so we are sure we will get all of the juicy styling and performance details when the event floor opens up on May 13, 2010. Until then, check out the first image and stay tuned for more details!
The German tuner, Hamann, revealed today the official details on their first tuning kit based on the 2010 BMW Z4 Roadster. The kit includes both aerodynamic and performance upgrades which, to put it mildly, blows the kit by Hartge out of the water. This kit provides us with a cleaner, smoother line and a jump in horsepower.
For the exterior, Hamann added a new front spoiler with two integrated LED day lamps, side skirts, a shapely spoiler mounted on the tailgate, a new rear apron, and a sporty four tailpipes exhaust system. The Z4 sits on 20" forged wheels painted in matte black.
Under the hood the engine has been tuned to deliver 360 HP at 5230 rpm and a peak torque of 540 NM available in the engine speed range of 1300 to 5000 rpm. The speed limit has also been removed (YES!!) so that now the Z4 can go up to 177 mph.
For the interior you can also get a new aluminum gear knob and a set of foot mats with the silver stitched Hamann logo.
Now, this is an appropriate kit for the BMW Z4 Roadster!
The German tuner Hamann unveiled the Conqueror II at the Geneva Motor Show. It is a tuning kit based on the Range Rover SPORT that improves both the SUV’s aerodynamics, but also the performances.
The aerodynamic kit includes: a stylishly adjusted front bumper components with the four integrated LED daytime running lights and the carbon bonnet, a roof spoiler, a rear apron placed in a diffuser-look and the HAMANN-side planking.
As for the 5,0 V8-Supercharged engine, it has been tuned to deliver an impressive 60 hp at 6,500 r.p.m and 685 Nm within the speed range of 2,500 to 5,500 r.p.m. For the 3,0 TDV6 engine the output has been raised to 280 hp and the peak torque to 660 Nm.
Famous auto tuners like Hamann are used to sprucing up even the most exotic of supercars to make them better than they already are, and forgive us for having been a little spoiled, but Hamann’s rather impressive track record has made believers out of us.
So when they take a stab at tuning up a car like the Ferrari 458 Italia, you can say that we expect something along the lines of jaw-dropping.
That being said, we’re guessing that this Hamann-tuned 458 Italia is far from a finished product. After all, those sets of exclusive 21" light alloy wheels - available in two different designs: Split-rim forged or Ultra-light forged, with both versions being available in Cross-spoke-design and are painted in Spider in black, titanium screwing, polished flange or Black anodized - are pretty darn awesome in their own right, but we still that they could do so much more with a car like the 458 Italia.
So we’re not going to count our chickens before they hatch because we believe that Hamann is far from finished with the new Ferrari supercar and when the time comes that they’re ready to reveal the full package, then rest assured, we most likely won’t be disappointed.
The German tuner Hamann will come at the Geneva Motor Show with a tuning package for the Mercedes G-Class G55 AMG. The aerodynamic kit includes, among others: an optimized air flow, two LED daytime running lights integrated in the front spoiler, a roof spoiler, a newly designed rear skirt with the integrated diffuser and a 13- part exterior set made of carbon fibre (radiator grill, headlight protective grid, mirror cases, door handles, air inlets in the side wings, bonnet air blind).
For the 5.4-liter engine, Hamann is offering two powerful performance enhancements, with a maximum of 600 hp and 782 NM of torque. The result is a 0-60 time of just over five seconds and a top speed of 162 mph.
Abarth has already tuned up the Fiat 500, but car tuner Hamann isn’t exactly one to settle for something when they know that they could do something more more. So at the Geneva Motor Show, they will unveil a new tuning package for both the 500 Abarth and Abarth esseesse.
Hamann is offering three different engine-stage upgrades for the Abarth 500. In stage one, HS I, the output is raised to 160 hp (up from 135 hp). In stage two, HS, the output bumps up to 180 hp and 295 Nm torque; and finally, stage three, HS III, takes the output even further and brings it up to an impressive 210 hp and 310 NM.
And if this is not enough for you, Hamann’s HS Race program also adds forged pistons, enhanced connection rods, a modified turbo charger with charge air cooler, a race clutch with weight-optimized one-mass flywheel and a new control electronic. The result is an impressive 240 hp and 330NM.
And finally, there is the modification kit "HS CINQUECENTO 575". Thanks to a re-engineered cylinder head with an adjusted camshaft, two charge air coolers, as well as a self-locking differential, you can get an impressive 275 hp while the torque is catapulted to 380 Nm.
