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.

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.

I’m not impressed with the design used, though it is elegant indeed. It still looked over dressed to the car.
