It seems that the Volcano is a very successful model for Hamann. After the first white model and the Red Edition revealed at the Frankfurt Show, the German tuner has also created a Yellow Edition. besides the paint scheme it brings no modifications to the Volcano supercar.

Hamann Volcano Yellow Edition

The Volcano is powered by a 5.4 Liter V8 boosted from 626 HP all the way up to a clean 700 HP, this drops .2 seconds off the car’s 0 to 60 MPH time which now clocks in at 3.6 seconds and is able to reach a top speed of 216 MPH.

The high performance tuning house Hamann has just unveiled the Volcano based on the McLaren SLR super car. The Volcano is powered by a 5.4 Liter V8 boosted from 626 HP all the way up to a clean 700 HP, this drops .2 seconds off the car’s 0 to 60 MPH time which now clocks in at 3.6 seconds and is able to reach a top speed of 216 MPH.

Hamann Volcano Special red IAA

Aside from the bold new paint scheme, the Volcano wears an extremely aggressive body kit complete with bare carbon fiber fender flares and a very sharp front lip. Hamann even saw fit to incorporate a few stylish LED driving lights underneath the front air dam and a carbon fiber roof scoop up top. Now Hamann is typically known for their powerful creations, but this particular SLR is just completely over the top. What the heck. If you are going to introduce a new tuner car at the Frankfurt Motor Show, why not go all out.

At first glance the diminutive FIAT 500 might look like an ordinary uninteresting city car, however the high performance modification specialists at Hamann Hamann beg to differ. The German tuners have added a very sporty aerodynamic package made from light weight composite materials that transforms the way you will think about the little 500. The Hamann body kit consists of a redesigned front bumper complete with integrated LED lights, a set of wider fender flares for all four corners, a pair of lower hanging side skirts and a quad tipped exhaust complete with a redesigned rear diffuser. The components not only improve the FIAT 500 aesthetically, but they also make space for the wider wheels and tires that the tuner places underneath.

Hamann Largo

Hamann has increased the output of FIAT 500 by allowing it to exhale a little better. The tuners have incorporated a new exhaust manifold, high flow catalytic converter and a stainless steel exhaust to increase the 500’s engine output all the way up to 265 HP at 5,630 RPM and 257 lb-ft of torque at 4,200 RPM.

The Hamann Largo’s black body is set off by the set of matte black 18 inch rims that hide the larger brakes and Hamann coil over suspension underneath, the latter lowers the car by up to 3 inches, this not only gives the Fiat 500 a more aggressive stance, but also lowers the car’s center of gravity and dramatically improves the 500’s handling.

The aftermarket manufacturer Hamann has just unveiled their latest creation at the Frankfurt Motor Show, a customization package for the Italian sports car that improves both its appearance and performance with a host of carbon fiber aerodynamic pieces as well as a 20% bump in power.

Back in January the tuning house Hamann released an appearance package for the BMW X6 sports activity vehicle, the modified car was then called the Tycoon for its over the top styling featuring bold arches and a redesigned front end filled with all sorts of scoops and air vents. Well it is now September and the aftermarket specialists are preparing to debut the next step in their tuning program at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show.

BMW X6 based Hamann Tycoon EVO

The BMW Tycoon EVO comes complete with a new set of widened front fenders and rear quarter panel extensions made of a lightweight composite that adds about two inches to the X6’s width. The front bumper is similar to before except that this time there are two rows of powerful LED running lights inside the large air vents on either side of the car as well as the traditional projector fog lamps as well. The side skirts bring the body closer to the ground and at the same time bring it out to meet the new wide fenders. Out back is a pair of wings, more vents than you can shake a stick at and a mild diffuser at the bottom that frames two large fat pipes stick out from behind the middle of the Tycoon EVO letting onlookers know that this is no SUV to be messing with.

Hamann has a plan to increase the output of any BMW that could wear the Tycoon EVO kit. The 3.0 Liter twin turbocharged inline six cylinder engine found in the BMW X6 xDrive35i has been tuned to produce a maximum output of 360 hp and almost 400 lb-ft of torque, while the diesel powered xDrive30d now delivers a peak of 265 HP and 443 lb-ft of torque and the xDrive35d now makes 320 HP and 487 lb-ft of torque. The most powerful of all the X6 models, the xDrive50i with its 5.0 Liter twin turbo direct injected V8 gets 501 HP and 516 lb-ft of twist while the Tycoon EVO’s top speed goes up to 186 MPH.

The Mercedees Benz G Wagon celebrated it’s 30 anniversiry this year, and Hamann is celebrating by giving the Austrian military’s favorite fast attack vehicle a birthday present in the form of a complete makeover, both inside and out of this G55 AMG as well as under the hood. Owners can choose from either a mild 35 HP upgrade, or go all out with the HM 600 performance kit that beefs up the 5.4 Liter engine with a blower to produce 600 HP and 576 lb-ft of torque, and like we said before, can go from 0 to 60 MPH in 5.1 seconds and hit a top speed of 162 MPH. Pretty impressive for an all-terrain machine.

Hamann tunes the Mercedes Benz G55 AMG

From the outside, Hamann has upgraded the Typhoon with an oversized grill, carbon fiber for the mirrors, door handles and fender vents. There is a new front spoiler that lowers the front end of the vehicle giving it a more sporty appearance, just like the rear wing. The most impressive features of the Typhoon are the rims, measuring in at 24 inches in diameter, not only are they huge, but the black offsets the cream exterior perfectly.

The interior has been recovered in plush red fabric on the door panels, headliner, armrests and seat inserts. The interior is further dressed up with a few carbon fiber trim pieces as well as a couple more red accents. Aside from the wild materials, for the most part, the Typhoon’s interior is exactly like it left the factory, the perfect compliment for any tuner. So if you feel like celebrating along with the boys at Hamann, give them a ring and see what they can do with your G wagon.
