Even if it was just unveiled, the new BMW 5-Series GT has undergone its initial round of customization from the German tuner Hamann. Even if there are no official details about the modified GT, it is apparent that the kit will start by transforming the sporty 5-Series ’ front end with a modified front bumper as well as a new rear unit, some new exhaust tips a different set of tailpipes, a set of Hamann’s signature wheels painted black as well as a host of unique interior accessories.

The BMW 5-Series GT is currently being offered with three different engines. The first is the new 3.0 Liter turbocharged straight six that makes 306 HP and 295 lb-ft of torque, a 4.4 Liter twin turbo V8 producing 408 HP and a 3.0 Liter turbo diesel mill that makes 245 HP, but we are expecting to see an improvement of at least 30 HP or more from the aftermarket manufacturer.

Stay tuned for more details.

Hamann Typhoon

The German tuning firm Hamann has just revealed a new tuning kit for the all-terrain Mercedes Benz G55 AMG . Thanks to a few aftermarket performance products, the Hamann Typhoon is now able to sprint from 0 to 60 MPH in just 5.1 seconds, unbelievable performance for an off-roader.

BMW 7-Series by Hamann

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 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.

A couple of weeks ago we got the teaser video now we got the full info and plenty of pics of the new Hamann Volcano based on the Mercedes SLR .

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?
