Hamann manufactured products for BMW since 1986, tuning relying on motor-sport experience and the result: powerful performance enhancements, lift-reducing aerodynamics components and a sport braking system. Striking 19- and 20- inch light alloy wheels and interior modifications made of aluminium and carbon complement these upgrades.
The first tuning level increases the power of the 420 hp V8 by 20 hp and delivers an additional 25 Nm. This is achieved by re-programming the ECU. The top speed limiter is removed allowing the M3 to reach 186 mph. The 2ndtuning level releases a total of 35 hp and 48 Nm with the help of a stainless steel exhaust system. Obviously the engine management is tuned to suit the exhaust.

One of the technical highlights in the tuning program is the 3-piece wheel called EDITION RACE. The black-lacquered wheel center and the titan fittings emphasise the racing character. Due to its forge technology manufacturing, it is especially light improving handling, acceleration and braking.
Hamann offers interior accessories made of precious aluminium. Hand brake levers, gear sticks and pedals bring a racing flair and perfectly match Hamannâ€™s interior set made of super-light carbon. Personalized floor mats up to complete leather equipments everything is made in handcrafted quality.
Hamann is not only a BMW tuner and shows us that by launching a tuning program for Bentley Continental GT and GT Speed.
Called Imperator, new creation of German tuner comes with a number of changes at both aesthetically and technically. On the outside, the coupe received a British new body kit consists of us Spoil side and rear extensions and air wings, LEDs, and lateral thresholds aileron for a trunk. Also, Imperator will notice the new wheels and, on 21 or 22 inches.
Of course, the interior was also changed and now enjoy new carpet, sport steering wheel, pedals, aluminum inserts and carbon fiber. As technical amendments, noted that the suspension guard ground down to 30 mm to 20 mm in the rear, new exhaust system and ECU improved models now having not less than 630 horsepower and 750 Nm (Bentley Continental GT), respectively 650 hp and 830 Nm (Bentley Continental GT Speed).
German tuner Hamann is recognized in particular for modifying models and BMW’s newest creation is based on x6. To improve the appearance, Hamann offers a new body kit consisting of a front spoiler with LED, thresholds side, rear spoiler, and extensions for aileron wings. The 23 inch rims wears tires of 315/25 r23. At the interior we find inner aluminum pedals, sport steering wheel inserts and carbon fiber. Also, the German tuner x6 endowed them with a new exhaust system and a suspension that lowers the guard to the ground by 40 mm.

More than that, Hamann offers a series of improvements to his x6 engine. The x6 xDrive35i develops 360 hp and 540 Nm, and can reach a maximum speed of 275 km / h. Power version xDrive30d increased to 265 horsepower and 600 Nm, while xDrive35d now have 320 hp and 660 Nm. A kit for increasing power xDrive50i version will be available soon.
Hamann has announced that is preparing a package of tuning for models Bentley Continental GT and GT Speed; British brand is the newest name that will be found in German tuner portfolio, a portfolio that already includes names like Aston Martin, BMW, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche, Mercedes and more.
Many details about the tuning program are not known, but Hamann has revealed few photos with him. As can we see in the pictures, the British coupe received a new exterior body kit – consisting of Spoil front and rear, side and thresholds aileron – and new wheels, while inside he had suffered a series of changes. We also expect improvements at the suspension, braking system and engine of the 6.0-liter W12.
Hamann is a tuner from which you expect a lot, but I do not think more people would be expected to modify a Mercedes. Not right now … And the interesting part is that they have not changed any Mercedes, but maybe the best Mercedes … SLR briefly. Hamann Volcano comes from outside with an extension for front spoiler, extensions to front and rear wings, thresholds side, rear speaker, and aileron intake air to ceiling. Aggressive appearance from the outside is complete and 21 inches rims wear 255/30ZR21 tires in front and 345/25ZR21 on the rear.
Neither has the untouched and still benefit from aluminum pedals, carpet, sport steering wheel, Alcantara inserts and carbon fiber and logo debossed on Hamann seats. Good part is that Hamann Volcano is not just sports, but with a growing power. Hamann engineers have managed to increase their propeller power the 5.5 liter V8 up to 700 horsepower and 830 Nm. The result is of 3.6 seconds from 0-100 km / h and maximum speed is of 348 km / h.
I am sure that most of you who have read a book or two, will find the following car very amusing, since its tuning name is Cyrano, after the French character from the play Cyrano de Bergerac.
The lucky winner in this case is the Porsche Panamera Turbo and Turbo S which received from Hamann a great tuning that includes a new body kit and excellent performance parts.
Underneath the hood lies a a custom exhaust system which increased its strength to 595 HP reaching 100km/h in just 3.9 seconds. And this is not all. It can top 200 km/h in only 12.6 seconds, while the top speed is set at around 315 km/h.
As for its beautiful exterior, Porsche can be the proud owner of a new front bumper with integrated LED daytime running lights, carbon fiber hood with air vents, fender extensions, side skirts, new rear bumper, a new rear wing to make it a bit more aggressive and a new air suspension kit to lower the car up to 30 mm. With all these, the 22-inch rims wrapped in high performance low profile tires will fit perfectly.
BMW strikes again. The Frankfurt Motor Show 2011 was “blessed” with the presence of the newest Hamann 6 Series Cabriolet which reminds us of the BMW 6 Series, but with certain upgrades.
The main difference between these two is what lies under the hood. If you will own a Hamann, you will definitely notice a power of approximately 510 horses which are ready to make you a true road rage. And its quad-tip stainless exhaust contributes to a clear and fashionable display of power.
And last, but not least, the forged alloy wheels and an aggressive body kit have been installed in order to complete the “dangerous- sexy” look.
Just like in Transporter, a movie that has everything (cars for men and pretty guys for the ladies).
Porsche 911 Turbo was already one of the fastest, best-performing sport cars on the road, but there is Hamann â€“ who’ve tuned everything from the MINI Cooper to the Ferrari 612 Scaglietti â€“ come in to confound expectations and shatter assumptions.
Hamann Stallion 911 Turbo Tuning
Not satisfied with “only” 480 horsepower, the Hamann Stallion packs a whopping 630 of its namesakes. To achieve that 150hp boost in output, Hamann swapped out the variable nozzle turbochargers and replaced them with… bigger variable nozzle turbochargers. They’ve also fitted a new stainless steel exhaust, a new air filter and, of course, tinkered with the ECU. But they didn’t stop at the engine.
Hamann also chopped the roof down by 8 cm (about two and a half inches), bolted on a new aero kit and fitted huge 20-inch three-piece modular rims. They’ve also done up the interior in ostrich skin, applied some racing stripes and put new Lamborghini Style Doors.
The car tuning company Hamann Tuning has undertaken a new project to modify the ever more popular Fiat 500 Abarth.
The enhancements include a new aerodynamic body kit and a few features to enhance performance of the little Fiat. A new front skirt will adorn the car and a set of LED lights will add color to the car. Continue reading →
