2016 BMW M2 by Hamann

2016 BMW M2 by Hamann

Bimmer’s popular baby M sports coupe gets another tuning kit

If there was an award for the favorite car among aftermarket tuners for the year, the BMW M2 makes a strong case. You might even say it makes the best case. This year alone, a number of the world’s best aftermarket companies have developed programs for the baby M sports coupe, including AC Schnitzer, G-Power, and Alpha-N Performance, among others. Now you can add Hamann to that list, and considering the tuner’s expertise in building kits for a wide variety of performance models, picking which M2 program is the best of them all just got a lot harder. For its part, Hamann’s new kit for the M2 follows the traditional blueprint of a Hamann program. It’s got a flashy exterior that’s characterized by the new wheels. It’s got technical upgrades to help the car in top working condition. Best of all, it’s got an engine upgrade that boasts an increase in output to 414 horsepower and 391 pound-feet of torque.

From a quantity and quality standpoint, Hamann’s program fits into what most would consider a complete tuning kit. There are no interior upgrades, but for the most part, the important items were worked on to the fullest extent in which they can be worked on without compromising the natural characteristics of the BMW M2. The numbers are there for this kit.

That said, Hamann isn’t the only tuner to work on the BMW M2 this year, let alone in the past month. AC Schnitzer started offering its own version of a tuning kit in late October, and that doesn’t even count the myriad of others that have released their own takes earlier this year. All these programs prove that the M2 tuning scene is as competitive as any other performance car in the market today, and the entry of Hamann into this aftermarket donnybrook isn’t going to help prospective customers decide on which tuning kit they prefer to get.

2016 Range Rover Evoque By Hamann

2016 Range Rover Evoque By Hamann

Popular crossover gets variety of engine upgrades from German tuner

Ever since it made its debut in 2011, the Range Rover Evoque has quickly become one of Land Rover’s most popular models. On top of the Evoque’s sales success, the SUV’s popularity has extended into the aftermarket scene, having been the subject of numerous tuning programs from specialists like Kahn Design, Milner, and Startech, among others. Hamann also counts itself as a proud tuner of the Evoque, having just presented its latest upgrade package for the crossover that includes modest engine upgrades across a handful of Evoque variants. The most potent of these upgrades is for the Evoque Si4, which sees its output increase modestly from 240 horsepower and 250 pound-feet of torque to 256 horses and 291 pound-feet of twist.

In addition to the Si4, the TD4, eD4, and SD4 versions of the Evoque also received their respective bumps in power. There’s also a modest aero kit for all versions of the crossover, as well as a personalized interior option, a new set of wheels, and new sports springs to aid in the suspension.

This program isn’t the type of kit that can turn the Evoque into a high-riding performance vehicle. The upgrade themselves are subtle and, if you’re the type to want something spectacular, this kit is probably not for you. But, if you want to refine your Evoque in all facets without losing its sporting character, Hamann’s tuning program is a good choice to have. There’s not much style and flair here; just plenty of substance all around.

2014 BMW 4 Series Coupe by Hamann

2014 BMW 4 Series Coupe by Hamann

You can always leave it up to Hamann to churn out aftermarket programs for cars that are affordable enough to own, yet still possesses that incredible look to make the power upgrades all worth the price in the end.

Such is the case with the program the German tuner built for the BMW 4 Series Coupe. At a starting price of just over $41,000, the 4er won’t burn holes on your pockets, so owning one isn’t that difficult to do. But having one in your garage is only the first part of the equation to thoroughly enjoying the spoils of the 4 Series.

That’s where Hamann comes into the picture, or to be more specific the myriad of performance kits it has developed for the sports coupe. It’s an extensive list that covers a large boat of trim levels for the 4 Series.

For the 420d/420d xDrive, power spikes from 184 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque all the way up to 216 horsepower and 324 pound-feet of torque. Moving up to the 430d, you get the treat of seeing the standard 258 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque increase to 295 horses and 446 pound-feet. If you have the 435d xDrive, you receive the most powerful tuned 4 Series of the lot, thanks to a new output of 355 ponies and 512 pound-feet of torque.

Far be it to leave the ’i’ models alone, Hamann also gave them their own line of power boosts, led by the 420i/420i xDrive TwinPower, which now has 208 horsepower and 232 pound-feet of torque, up from the stock 184 ponies and 199 pound-feet of torque. Then, there’s the 428i/428i xDrive TwinPower models, both of which now get 272 horsepower and 289 pound-feet of torque from the stock 245 horses and 258 pound-feet of torque.

Finally, the 435i/435i xDrive TwinPower models come into the picture, boasting 348 ponies and 331 pound-feet of torque, which is a significant increase from the 306-horsepower and 295 pound-feet output of the standard model.

2014 BMW M6 Gran Coupe Mirr6r GC by Hamann

2014 BMW M6 Gran Coupe Mirr6r GC by Hamann

Hamann’s BMW M6 Coupe Mirr6r program was arguably one of the aftermarket stars back in March at the Geneva Motor Show.

Turns out, the popularity of the Mirr6r program compelled the German tuner to prepare another one; this time for the M6 Coupe’scousin, the M6 Gran Coupe. Oh, and the car is on display at the Frankfurt Motor Show, making the Mirr6r program two-for-two in the two biggest auto shows of the year.

The cosmetic modifications look pretty similar to the first Mirr6r program with upgrades ranging from a 40 mm (1.6-inch) wide body kit, a carbon-fiber hood with its own air outlets, larger wheel arches, fresh bumpers, new side skirts, and of course, the completely ostentatious mirror-like finish of the body. Rounding out the exterior modifications is the set of 21-inch forged wheels, a new rear spoiler and a rear diffuser.

Moving inside, the treatment done on the M6 Mirr6r GC include a wide range of leather and Alcantara options that the customer can choose from. It’s this kind of custom upgrade that will really bring out the personality of the client as well as completely personalize the already attention grabbing nature of Hamann’sprogram.

Hamann didn’t announce any modifications to the drivetrain, so this M6 Gran Coupe retains the same 4.4-liter V-8 engine that delivers 560 horsepower — 575 horsepower with the Competition Package — and 502 pound-feet of torque. This is enough to launch the four-door coupe to 60 mph in as few as 4.1 seconds (4.3 seconds with a manual transmission).

2013 BMW X6 Tycoon II M by Hamann

2013 BMW X6 Tycoon II M by Hamann

Back in 2010, German tuner Hamann announced theTycoon EVO M program for the BMW X6 M. Now that BMW has officially revised the X6 M, Hamann saw fit to give its own Tycoon program its own share of upgrades.

The program, now called Tycoon II, takes the updates even further by transforming the X6 M into a real bonafide beast. The most impressive job was made under the hood where the tuner managed to increase the SUV’s standard output to a total of 670 horsepower, a significant increase from the standard 555 horsepower.

To achieve the modifications it aimed for, Hamman installed a sport kit HM 670 that includes catalytic converter pipes and optimizing the engine characteristics. Next to delivering more power, these upgrades also increased the peak torque from 501 pound-feet up to 700 pound-feet. With the extra power and torque the X6 M can now hit a top speed of 186 mph.

2013 Mercedes G-Class Spyridon by Hamann

2013 Mercedes G-Class Spyridon by Hamann

The AMG versions of the new Mercedes G-Class — both the G65 AMG and G63 AMG — are quite perfect from factory, but there is always room for improvement. German tuner, Hamann, is proving this by unveiling a new tuning kit called Spyridon that can be combined with both the AMG models.

In order to deliver more power, the only modifications the tuner is offering are the addition of a new exhaust system and some minor ECU upgrades. The results are quite incredible, as the G65 AMG’s output goes from 612 to 702 horsepower and the peak torque goes from 737 to 818 pound-feet of torque, and the G63 version’s output is increased from 544 to 610 horsepower and the peak torque up from 516 to 645 pound-feet.

The exterior upgrades include the addition of tailor-made LED fluorescent strips added to the front spoiler, new mirror housings and engine bonnet made in carbon fiber. At the back, a new roof spoiler and rear apron offer increased aerodynamics. Down the sides, new side skirts are offered with LEDs that illuminate the floor. The latest addition to the exterior is a set of 24-inch light-alloy wheels made from aluminum.

For the interior, the tuner offers decorative stitching on the instrument panel and the seats, gold-colored leather door panels and a total of 24 carbon trims.

UPDATE 04/04/13: Hamann has released the official studio photos of the G65 AMG Spyridon a month after the Geneva Motor Show. You know what they say: better late than never. Check out the photos in the gallery below!

2013 BMW M5 Mi5Sion by Hamann

2013 BMW M5 Mi5Sion by Hamann

Hamann says that its new program for the BMW M5, called Mi5Sion, is the most ferocious M5 of all time.

While that may ring of hyperbole to some people, we actually think that the German tuner has a point. Sure, the program has no performance upgrades, but in terms of looks, that’s one vicious looking M5.

In order to achieve the completely redefined dynamic of the M5, Hamann dug deep in their bag of tricks to fit the sports saloon with a bevy of new components. The front spoiler is where a lot of the modifications took place. There are still some of the standard M5 features like the deep front splitter, the LEDs, and the large air intakes. But Hamann took it a step further by adding a new dual kidney-shaped grille that covers the headlights completely, making for a menacing and angry-looking M5.

In addition, Hamann also extended the width of the M5 by 30 mm (1.18 inches) on each side while also dressing it up with carbon-fiber side skirts, door fixtures, sporty wings and broad rear wheel housings. On therear, a new integrated diffuser accommodates the pair of stainless-steel tailpipes while a rear spoiler was installed to provide better downforce for the M5. Rounding out the exterior modifications is a set of 21-inch forged wheels wrapped in Vredestein Ultrac Vorti R tires.

Moving to the interior, the Mi5Sion M5 was treated to plenty of leather in the same Alpine White finish of the exterior with touches of carbon embossing, giving the interior a distinctive look that fits right in with the aggressive overall appearance of the program.

2013 BMW M6 Mirr6r by Hamann

2013 BMW M6 Mirr6r by Hamann

Swiss tuner, Mansory, may be the king of the over-the-top aftermarket programs, but Hamann’s new "Mirr6r"program for the BMW M6 may just give Mansory a run for its money.

To say that the Mirr6r program is shiny can be a little bit of understatement. The chrome finish on the body is definitely eye catching, if not glaring when parked under the sun. But that’s not the only thing special about the Mirr6r program because Hamann went to great lengths to ratchet up the aggressive look of the luxury sports car. Notice the new bonnet on the M6 that was installed by Hamann. That one, like the rest of the new components the German tuner added to the M6, is made of carbon fiber.

The program also gives the M6 a wider look, extending the width of the car by 40 mm (1.57 inches) to go with a more pronounced stance. Hamann also did a great job in re-sculpting the M6 in such a way that its lines flow across the side skirts with its air intakes all the way to the rear spoiler, including the integrated carbon Venturi diffuser. And for added downforce, a new carbon rear spoiler was introduced. Rounding out the exterior modifications is a new set of 21-inch ultra-light forged wheels with a choice of either “Edition Race” or “Unique Forged Formula” and wrapped in Vredestein Ultrac Vorti R tires to ensure top-caliber grip, steering precision and cornering ability.

Inside, Hamann used numerous leather Alcantara applications to refine the cabin space of the M6 while also adding aluminum pedals and foot rests. As an added option, the German tuner can also install a host of optional accessories, including illuminated trims in chrome.

No engine upgrades have been announced yet but Hamann said that it’s still tweaking the engine’s performance. So stay tuned for that one.

Hamann Updates the BMW 6-Series Gran Coupè M Package

Hamann Updates the BMW 6-Series Gran Coupè M Package

When BMW unveiled the 6-Series Gran Coupè it also announced an M aerodynamic packet that would further update the look of the four-door coupè. Hamann has just announced an individualization program that adds exclusive parts for models with the M aerodynamic packet, making the 6-Series Gran Coupè even more stylish.

The package includes a competition front spoiler which increases the down-force and an insert for the rear bumper that offers space for four tailpipes. Along with these updates, the tuner is also offering a front bumper, rear spoiler, tailgate cover and side skirts. The tuner is also offering a wide range of new wheels, plus a series of updates for the interior.

Up to this point, Hamann announced no engine upgrades for the model, but for sure things are going to change in the next few weeks. By that time we are hoping to also learn the price for the new updates offered by the tuner.

Hamann Releases a New Take on Their MemoR Program for the McLaren MP4-12C

Hamann Releases a New Take on Their MemoR Program for the McLaren MP4-12C

After two iterations of the McLaren MP4-12C, Hamann’s "MemoR" program for the British supercar is back for another helping.

We’ve already seen this song and dance twice before - one that made its debut at the Geneva Motor Show and the other was an art car take late last year - and to be honest, we wouldn’t mind if they made an entire album out of it.

The latest one isn’t all too different from the package we saw from the two earlier versions, except for the distinctive blue body finish with matching black accents. The body kit is still there, which includes a large front splitter, wheel arch-forced ventilations, new side skirts, a roof duct, and a larger rear wing. A new rear fender was also installed, along with a new diffuser, side pods, a triple exhaust system, and a set of 21-inch wheels.

The interior is fancily dressed up, too, unless you count the prevalent use of carbon, leather, and Alcantara to go with all the other niceties the cabin as run-of-the-mill.

All in all, the MemoR 12C program will set you back €95,000 ($130,000), plus tax. We know that the program costs more than just a pretty penny, but if you can make your MP4-12C to look like this, it’s a cost definitely worth incurring.

2013 Fiat 500 Sportivo by Hamann

2013 Fiat 500 Sportivo by Hamann

Body-kit-bearing vehicles are usually a little too tacky for our liking, but German tuner extraordinaire Hamann Motorsports was able to create a program for the Fiat 500 that is centered around a body kit that actually looks pretty good.

Actually, the program is much more extensive than just slapping on those new body panels. You’ll notice that there’s also a new front bumper unit that comes with a pair of LED daytime running lights, a welcome addition to the 500, if you ask us. There are also new side skirts, new fender extensions, a new rear bumper unit, a set of 18-inch Design "Largo Forged" Anodized wheels wrapped in FA 215/35R18 and RA 225/35R18 tires.

Our inquisitive minds also found out that the program also comes with a new Sportivo suspension-lowering kit, a sport rear muffler with quad tail pipes, and an engine upgrade that involves ECU remaps for both the 1.3 Multijet 16V Diesel model and the 1.4i 16V that increase the output from 75 horsepower and 107 pounds-per-feet of torque, and 101 horsepower and 97 pounds-per-feet of torque to 90 horsepower at 4,000 rpm and 136 pounds-per-feet of torque at 1,750 rpm and 112 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 108 pounds-per-feet of torque at 4,250 rpm, respectively. To rein in this power, Hamann added in a set of 11-inch rotors squeezed by a set of four-piston calipers.

For the more powerful 500 Abarth, Hamann is offering a Power Kit HS I engine upgrade that bumps up the output to 160 horsepower at 4,900 rpm and 210 pounds-per-feet of torque at 3,700 rpm.

2012 BMW 6-Series M Package by Hamann

2012 BMW 6-Series M Package by Hamann

Hamann is already offering upgrade packages for the 6-Series, both coupe and convertible model, but today the German tuner turned its attention to the models equipped with the M aerodynamic package. And while this new package offers no upgrades for the engine, it surely makes the 6-Series looking better than ever.

The package starts with a new competition front spoiler which
increases the down-force, while at the rear a new bumper offers space for
four exhaust tail pipes. The package also includes a new front bumper, rear spoiler, tailgate cover and side skirts.

And if you add to this updates the one already offered by the M package: black chrome exhaust tips, black-painted brake calipers, LED foglamps and a sports exhaust system then you will obtain a very sporty-looking 6-Series.

Hamann announced no updates under the hood, so customers will get the standard engines offered by BMW: a 400 HP V8 engine and a 320 HP six-cylinder inline.

2012 McLaren MP4-12C "Art Car" by Hamann

2012 McLaren MP4-12C "Art Car" by Hamann

German tuner Hamann has been known for some pretty eclectic and outlandish projects. But no matter what kind of expectations we have for those guys, we were still caught off guard when photos of a McLaren MP4-12C Art Car popped up on their Facebook page.

We’ve since found out details regarding this MP4-12C Art Car and as it turns out, it’s actually based on the MP4-12C program they first introduced last March. Remember the MemoR that was unveiled at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show earlier this year?

That one carried a pretty ill aesthetic and aerodynamic program despite not having any performance improvements to it. This one, though, takes the aesthetics to a whole new level. It’s described as a "magnificent haute couture," a description that pays ode to its flashy, multi-color body that has been combined with an aerodynamic body kit that draws inspiration from the McLaren F1. There’s a new front bumper with LED daytime running lights, a front splitter, a roof-mounted air intake, revised side skirts, an extended diffuser, a prominent rear wing and new set of 21" aluminum wheels.

Unlike other Art Cars that were mostly built for display, this MP4-12C MemoR Art Car’s styling kit is actually for sale. Hold on to your seats, though, because the kit has a sticker tag of €95,000, which is over $123,000 based on current exchange rates. And that doesn’t even come with any performance improvements!

Then again, if your MP4-12C looks like this, you won’t have trouble catching a ton of attention.

2013 BMW 6-Series Gran Coupe by Hamann

2013 BMW 6-Series Gran Coupe by Hamann

In April 2012, German tuner Hamann released their program for the new BMW 6-Series, a car that has been a fixation of ours for quite some time now. But as it turns out, Hamann’s got more up its sleeve with a teaser photo of their latest offering, this time for the 6-Series Gran Coupe.

Nothing much in the way of details have been revealed, but look for some significant modifications from the people who know what it takes to build some serious programs for their cars. Judging from the picture, there appears to be a slew of new components added into the car, including revised bumpers, new side skirts, a boot lid wing, an unmistakable Hamann bonnet, and a new set of Hamann wheels.

Performance modifications - if there are any - are still being kept under wraps so we’ll have to wait for more details on whether Hamann has improvements for the 6-Series Gran Coupe’s 445-horsepower 4.4-liter V8 engine. Looking at what Hamann showed us, though, we have to say that the components look mighty impressive, to say the least.

UPDATE 12/10/12: Hamann has released a new batch of photos of their 6er Gran Coupe F06 program. Check ’em out in the gallery below!

2012 Porsche Panamera Turbo Cyrano by Hamann

2012 Porsche Panamera Turbo Cyrano by Hamann

German tuner, Hamann, has seen its fair share of luxury vehicles in their headquarters, but every once in awhile, they have to pay a second visit to a previous model. This is the case with the Porsche Panamera Turbo. Their first "Cyrano" package was unveiled at the 2011 Essen Motor Show, but it only came with an output of 580 HP and 604 lb-ft of torque. Now, the German tuner has upgraded the package even further so that the Cyrano delivers a total of 603 HP and 641 lb-ft of torque.

With this impressive upgrade, the new Cyrano will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.9 seconds and up to 124 mph in 12.6 seconds. If equipped with the Sport Chrono Package, the Cyrano will go from 0 to 60 mph in jut 3.7 seconds and to 124 mph in 12.4 seconds, on its way up to an impressive top speed of 195 mph.

Aside from the power boost, the Panamera has also been completely redesigned to offer better aerodynamics. The front has been completely revamped thanks to the addition of larger air intakes, a redesigned bonnet made of carbon fiber, and perfectly integrated daytime running lights. For the side of the sports sedan, the tuner added new side skirts, while the rear of the vehicle received a special diffuser rear apron and a new sports exhaust system with dual tailpipes. A new set of 22" wheels combined with special suspensions or a lowering module for the air suspension completes the package.

The interior combines the finest leathers, with an aluminum pedal system, Alcantara, and an array of carbon fiber elements.

2012 Range Rover Evoque by Hamann

2012 Range Rover Evoque by Hamann

The Range Rover Evoque is one of the most appreciated Land Rover models among the entire Land Rover line-up. Plenty of tuners have shown interest in updating it in the past few weeks, but this latest package from German tuner, Hamann, is one of our favorites.

The new package is available for both three and five-door versions and starts with a pretty impressive exterior kit. It also continues with some changes in the SUV’s performance area. The Hamann’s Evoque has received a sportier and more masculine look, thanks to its two-part front spoiler, new tailored side skirts, and new fender flares. Hamann also opted to grow the vehicle by 70 millimeters at the front axle and 80 millimeters at the rear. The final element of the exterior is a new set of 22" aluminum wheels combined with new suspension-lowering springs that lower the car’s center of gravity by 30 millimeters.

Under the hood, the tuner is offering a performance-boosting kit which includes a high-performance exhaust system, a sports air filter, and an optimized engine map. As a result, the 2.0-liter Si4 turbocharged engine delivers an extra 38 HP (for a total of 278 HP) and the 2.2 liter diesel engine gets an extra 31 HP (for a total of 181 HP).

For the interior, Hamann is offering an extensive array of extras, ranging from personalized foot mats to a perfectly finished full leather interior.

2012 BMW 6-Series by Hamann

2012 BMW 6-Series by Hamann

The last time we saw German tuner Hamann work on a BMW 6-Series was at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show when they presented their program for the 6-Series Convertible. Since then, the German automaker has come out and released the 6-Series Coupe and lo and behold, Hamann followed suit with their first styling package for the luxury BMW.

For the 6-Series Coupe, Hamann worked on fitting it with a comprehensive styling package that, while not as outlandish as some of their past programs, still casts a distinctive styling that makes it stand out from the rest of the pack.

The aerodynamic kit starts off with a new front bumper that comes with LED lights, a new rear bumper with an integrated diffuser and quad tail pipes, new side skirts, and a rear spoiler. On top of that, Hamann also fitted the 6-Series with a new set of 20" or 21" forged split-rim cross-spoke wheels with titanium screws, progressive sport springs that effectively cut the height of the 6-Series by 30mm in the front and 25mm in the rear, and a new catback exhaust system with four 90mm round stainless-steel exhaust tips.

The interior of the 6-Series was also modified, albeit not as much as the exterior. Of the few changes, the things that stand out are the steering wheel, the pedals, and the Hamann badging.

No mechanical upgrades were mentioned, which means that you can expect the program to still carry the 6-Series Coupe’s 4.4-liter V-8 engine that produces 400 horsepower and 450 lb/ft of torque.

2012 Porsche Cayenne Turbo Guardian EVO by Hamann

2012 Porsche Cayenne Turbo Guardian EVO by Hamann

Subtlety has never been a trait for Hamann. As they’ve shown over the years, they don’t waste any time building turning programs for premium vehicles and if you look at their program line-up for the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, you can tell that Hamann hasn’t changed one bit.

One of their vehicles in the show is the Porsche Cayenne Turbo Guardian EVO. You’ve probably seen this program done on the Cayenne in previous years, but for this model, the German tuning company will be using the 2012 Cayenne Turbo.

As is always the case, the Guardian Evo comes with an extensive body kit that dramatically changes the profile look of the Cayenne Turbo. The front bumper is much larger than the stock version and also comes with larger air intakes, integrated daytime running lights, LED fog lights, and LED full-beam lights. Another significant addition to the kit is the carbon bonnet, which comes with a power dome used to improve the engine’s ventilation. Hamann also added a new rear bumper with an integrated diffuser and twin steel exhaust pipes. Then the tuning company widened the wheel arches by 120mm on the front and 160mm on the rear and fitted a new set of 23" alloy wheels wrapped in 315/25 Dunlop Sport Maxx tires.

In terms of performance upgrades, Hamann added a new sports air filter and a custom exhaust, as well as remapped the ECU, resulting in a 50-horsepower improvement for the Guardian Evo. Thanks to all these upgrades, the SUV can now do 550 horsepower and 568 lb/ft of torque, an increase from the stock numbers of 500 horsepower and 517 lb/ft of torque. These improvements allow the Guardian Evo to hit 0-62 mph in 4.6 seconds with a top speed of 187 mph.

2012 McLaren MP4-12C memoR by Hamann

2012 McLaren MP4-12C memoR by Hamann

Out of all the tuning packages that have graced the Geneva Auto Show’s floor, the packages for the McLaren MP4-12C seem to be the ones that are stealing the spotlight in Geneva. One of the more impressive packages is being offered by Mansory, but the "memoR" package from Hamann looks even better than that.

While the new MP4-12C has been criticized very often of having a design that is "too arbitrary and too little on its own," Hamann decided to get the car back to its F1 roots. For this, the front air intakes, the cross section of the hood, the rear side panel, and the sill area were all redesigned. Then, the company added a large front splitter, upper and side wheel arch forced vents, door sills, and an extended rear diffuser. A large rear wing ensures the necessary aerodynamic balance, while the rear end gets a triple exhaust system for a more menacing sound from the vehicle’s 3.8-liter V8 engine.

Speaking of the sports car’s engine, it received absolutely zero updates, leaving it with its standard 592 horsepower @ 7,000 rpm and 443 lb/ft of torque between 3,000 to 6,500 rpm. This is, of course, the area where we would prefer the tuning kit by Mansory which bumped up the engine’s output significantly.

UPDATE 05/24/12: Hamann has released a new set of photos for the McLaren MP4-12C memoR, which you can check out in the gallery!

2012 Mercedes SLS AMG Roadster "Hamann Hawk" by Hamann

2012 Mercedes SLS AMG Roadster "Hamann Hawk" by Hamann

A year after Hamann wowed the Geneva Motor Show with their program for the Mercedes SLS AMG called the "Hamann Hawk", the tuning company is coming back with the drop-top version of the Mercedes supercar.

It’s been no secret as to how adept these guys are with Mercedes vehicles and this program for the SLS AMG Roadster is no different. Aesthetically, Hamann fitted the supercar with the usual aerodynamic enhancements, including a front apron that replaces the serial bumper and a new LED light set-up. The SLS AMG Roadster also gets enlarged air inlets that provide more fresh air to the engine. There’s also a new bonnet made of checkered flag carbon, wider wings that add 60mm on the front side and 70mm on the rear side, new side skirts, a new rear apron with a matching diffuser, and a new set of 21" Unique Forged Anodized light forged wheels.

Inside, Hamann’s noted interior wizardry allowed them to add leather applications and ultra-suede embroideries. On top of that, they also replaced the air inlets, door sill protectors, and center console with red colored carbon fiber parts, while also putting in black anodized aluminum pedals and a newly redesigned steering wheel.

Finally, there’s the matter of the engine enhancement. For the SLS AMG Roadster, Hamann put in a new sports air filter and an exhaust system made out of stainless steel, as well as remapped the supercar’s ECU unit. The result is a dramatic increase in output from the car’s 6.3-liter V8 engine, from 563 horsepower and 479 lb/ft of torque all the way up to 636 horsepower and 501 lb/ft of torque. These numbers translate to a 0-60mph acceleration time of 3.6 seconds with a top speed of 204 mph.

2012 BMW M5 F10 by Hamann

Hamann Motorsport’s official delegation to the 2012 Geneva Motor Show has now been unveiled. We first showed you their respective programs for the Mercedes SLS AMG Roadster and the Range Rover Evoque; now the tuning company has unveiled their third Geneva-bound model: the BMW M5 F10.

Featuring a comprehensive program that includes aesthetic and engine upgrades, Hamann went to town on the M5 F10, further entrenching themselves as a favorite tuner among BMW aficionados.

This particular program comes with a widebody kit that adds more width to the front fender flares by 25mm at each side of the vehicle and 30 millimeters at each side of the rear. The kit also has a new front skirt with integrated LED daytime running lights, a new rear apron, a set of side skirts, a roof and rear spoiler, and a new set of 21" Unique Forged II light forged wheels. As an added option, Hamann is also offering Edition Race Anodized three-part aluminum wheels, which come with a dark grey anodized rim center and a titanium bolting of the polished rim flange. Meanwhile, interior enhancements include plenty of leather, aluminum pedals, and personalized floor mats.

As far as performance enhancements are concerned, the German tuner installed a new sport exhaust system and a new engine management system, resulting in an increased output from the M5’s 4.4 liter V8 unit. From 560 horsepower and 502 lb/ft of torque, the M5, thanks to Hamann, can now produce an impressive 720 horsepower and 664 lb/ft of torque.

2012 Range Rover Evoque by Hamann

2012 Range Rover Evoque by Hamann

Hamann Motorsport is getting ready to troop to Geneva for one of the biggest auto shows in the world and one of the vehicles that they’ll be proudly showing off is the new Range Rover Evoque. Their rendition of the luxury SUV has been decked from head to rear with the kind of comprehensive tuning program that Hamann is known for.

On the outside, the German tuning company fitted the British SUV with a bold aerodynamic package that includes a two-part front spoiler, side wing extensions, side sill sets that have widened the Evoque’s body by 70mm at the front and 80mm at the rear, and a new set of 22" wheels to go with a one-piece 22" wheel that is currently being offered in either the Anniversary Evo and Anniversary Evo Black line.

Inside, Hamann is offering customers an opportunity to customize the interior of their Range Rover Evoque, complete with a full-leather upholstery, personalized floor mats, and customized trim options.

The other highlight of Hamann’s program for the Range Rover Evoque is the engine modification. Thanks to a comprehensive program that includes a new exhaust system, a new sports air filter, and a remapped ECU unit, Hamann was able to achieve significant output improvements on all three engine options of the Evoque. The first one is the 2.2-liter TD4 engine, which saw its output increase from 148 horsepower to 179 horsepower. The second engine - the 2.2-liter ED4 engine - saw its output jump from 187 horsepower to 218 horsepower. Finally, the most powerful of the three Evoque engines - the 2.2 Si4 - increased its output from 240 horsepower to 278 horsepower.
