German tuners Hamann have added a new sense of style to the super luxury car the Bentley Continental GT, creating the Imperator. The body kit includes a more aggressive front bumper, side skirts, rear trunk spoiler and a redesigned rear bumper. However one of the nicest additions is the lightweight 22 inch rims.
The German tuners Hamann have just released an aero kit for the latest luxury limousine from BMW. The kit consists of sides skirts and a rear wing. There is no word yet on engine upgrades but we do know that the Bavarian tuners are eagerly anticipating the twin turbo V12 from the upcoming 760 i.
If last week we showed you a new set of Hamann wheels for the new Maserati GranTurismo, today is time for the new generation 7-Series to get the same minor treatment. As with the Maserati, the German tuner did not reveal any details about what/if we’ll see for performance modifications for the Bimmer, but at least we know that with these black wheels (combined with the black body in the picture,) the criminal underworld will continue to ride in style.
It’s a problem many of us have. You’ve just picked up your new Maserati GranTurismo, but you’re afraid that it’s just like everyone else’s $110,000 Italian sports car. Now it’s Hamann to the image rescue with its new wheels for Maserati’s GT. These are 21 inch EDITION RACE wheels: FA 9.0Jx21 with tires 245/30ZR21 and RA 12.5Jx21 with tires 345/45ZR21.
No details yet on if Hamann went to work on the GT’s 405 horsepower, but when we know more, you’ll know more.
Last week we saw the Hamann Volcano based on the Mercedes SLR, but this week the customizing house showed us something a little more tame. It took a BMW X6 and gave it a new front bumper (with integrated daytime running LEDs), a new hood painted in black with new air inlets , new side sills, a rear roof spoiler, a new trunk spoiler, and a new redesigned rear bumper with 4-pipe exhaust system. Also a new set of 23-inch Design Edition Race Anodized alloy wheels were added.
Hamann also is improving the car’s performance numbers by taking the 3.5-liter twin turbo V6 and boosting it from 300 hp to 360 hp.
Although the SLR is a car most of us would likely give certain parts of our anatomy for, THe people over at Hamann saw room for improvement. A good start was the 5.4-liter V8 engine was boosted from 626 to 700 hp. The new kit also includes a new front spoiler, a redesigned rear bumper, new side sills, a big rear wing spoiler and a new rear bumper with integrated air diffuser. To keep all this on the road, 21 inch Edition Race wheels fitted with 255/30ZR21 tires at the front and 345/25ZR21 at the back. All this creates a car that goes from 0 to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds (a 0.2 second improvement) with a limited top speed of 216 mph.
Inside the tuner added new carbon-fiber accessories, aluminium pedals and foot rests, new floor mats, sill protectors with Hamann logo and lots of Alcantara leather.
The car is no doubt impressive, but is it a case of too much? For instance was it really necessary to eliminate the retractable spoiler and attach the large rear wing?
As you may know, Hamann represents a well-known German tuner specialized in tuning high-end supercars. The latest creation of the tuner is the Hamann Volcano based on the Mercedes SLR supercar. In order to offer a little preview of the vehicle the tuner released a video which presents the new vehicle. The new kit for the Mercedes SLR includes a carbon-fiber front lip spoiler, new side sills, a re-designed rear bumper with new rear air diffuser and a big rear wing spoiler specially designed in order to improve the stability. Also, a new set of black wheels was added improving its looks.
Like Bentley, Aston Martin represents the British luxury and with every car built the manufacturer wins our respect. The latest masterpiece from Aston Martin was the V8 Vantage which in our opinion was the perfect car…until we saw the tuning kit from Hamann Motorsport.
With the new kit everything changes: the car receives a new front bumper with carbon fiber insertions, new carbon fiber side sills, a carbon fiber rear trunk spoiler, and a re-designed rear bumper featuring new exhaust cutters and rear air diffuser. The car received also a new suspension kit which lowers it with 30 mm as well as a new set of 20in black alloy wheels.
Hamann offers a kit for the convertible version of the Vantage, too. With less carbon fiber used, the kit features the re-designed carbon fiber front bumper this time without the carbon fiber front lip and the new rear bumper. The tuner used the same suspension kit as well as the new wheels on this kit, making it look better than ever. No words about the price yet but we got plenty of photos after the jump!
After Carlsson unveiled its latest wheels for Mercedes Benz, Hamann the well-known tuning company specialized in high-end cars unveiled its latest creation: HM Evo Forged wheels. Weighing 11 kilograms and measuring 8.5 x 20 inches, the new wheels are available, according to the manufacturer, to the current BMW fleet, combining the modern design with the highest technical requirements.
The wheels design features five elongated and vaulted triple spokes and are available in dark hard coal finishing. For those folks who eant to buy these type of wheels they have to know that there are available in the dimensions 8.5 x 20 to 11 x 20 as well as 9.0 x 21 to 10.5 x 21 inches for all current BMW cars with prices beginning at 1,500 euros or $2,200.
Hamann comes with a new performance kit for the Mini Cooper S and Mini Cooper D. Both cars receive a re-programmed serial Motronic which increases the power of 26 hp and raises the maximum speed with 5km/h faster. If the Diesel version has now 136 hp with a maximum torque of 300Nm at 1,750-2,000 rpm the petrol model gets even more performance achieving 204 hp and a torque of 300 Nm at 1,600 – 5,000rpm. The Mini Cooper S is more advantaged as it also gets the SPORTKIT CS 230, meaning that together with the tuned Motronic the car will also feature a new supercharged air cooler. With the help of a Hamann sport muffler, the Cooper S is capable of 230 hp and a top speed of 238km/h.
The Hamann kit also gives some refreshment in design, as an alternative of course. The serial front skirt is improved, reducing the lifting forces and giving a higher stability especially when driving at high speeds. Also the side sills, the roof spoiler and the rear bumper with integrated central exhaust system and rear air diffuser improve the aerodynamics of the car. Even the suspension system was improved by Hamann lowering the car with up to 50 millimeters. Also new 18 inch alloy wheels were added!
