F06 BMW M6 Gran Coupe by Hamann

You’re a Coupe fan, but you need extra space. Or you’re addicted to luxury, but you can’t give up sportiness. Or, maybe, you’re addicted to style, but you have 2 kids. It doesn’t matter what’s your case: BMW got you covered, thanks to the 6 Series Gran Coupe.

All the variants are fast, no doubt about it. You can opt for diesel or gasoline – it doesn’t matter: either way, you’ll get top performance. In the top of the range, there’s the mighty M6 Gran Coupe, which puts under the acceleration pedal 560 hp and 680 Nm of torque, enough to allow a 4.2 seconds acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h.

However, there are people out there who find these numbers rather insufficient, and here the German tuner, Hamann, gets into the scene. They upgrade even the most powerful 6 Series Gran Coupe, the M6, offering 90 extra horses and 170 Nm of torque more. Packed with 650 hp and 850 Nm @ 1850 rpm, the V8 engine should help the sports car break the 100 km/h barrier in under 4 seconds. Hamann recommends the M carbon – ceramic brake system, to stop this tremendous force.

F80 BMW M3 by DS Automobile

I said it many times before: the F80 BMW M3 is one of the most modified cars on the planet. And it’s not difficult to see why: it’s a fast car in its original form, it’s turbo, which makes it easy to upgrade, and it has a solid engine, which gives the failure-proof guarantee.

Therefore, most of the tuners love tinkering its engine, while adding a sporty stance. In this case it’s about a Swiss company, named DS Automobile. They took a stock F80 BMW M3 and garnished it with goodies from the German turner Hamann. Adding the front spoiler lip, the rear diffuser, and the 21 inch Anniversary Evo wheels completely changed the M3’s appearance. They could also add a new, more profiled hood, but they kept the original one. Instead, an adjustable rear wing, also provided by Hamann, has been added to bring extra style.

Then, fitting the lower suspension kit added an even more aggressive stance. Next step? Paint the body in white! And, yes, that’s a lot of white. I can’t say I don’t like it, I’m only saying it’s a matter of taste. But looking at the engine output, it’s clear that what’s under the hood isn’t a matter of taste anymore!

F87 BMW M2 with Hamann wheels

One of the first mods to do when buying a car, is replacing its wheels. Not necessarily with larger ones, but preferable, with a lighter set. If they also add style, the better they are!

Since we presented you yesterday a combination between the German F87 M2 and the Italian Supersprint exhaust, which worked perfectly, allow us today to show you a a set of German wheels on a German car. How do you think they match?

Their name is Anniversary Evo, their diameter is 20 inch, and the design with thin spokes is as classy as it can be. Surely, Hamann will offer much more than only a set of wheels for the BMW M2. But they still keep it secret. However, based on their previous works of art, we can bet it’s a kit made of carbon fiber, which includes a new front splitter, continued with side skirts and a generously dimensioned rear diffuser. A big rear wing must also be part of the feast. You can probably buy them separately, as independent parts found in the official offer.

BMW X6 M50d by Hamann – fast, but fuel – conscious

Do you like the BMW X6? I almost hear contradictory answers. I know the late BMW models aren’t of everyone’s taste. But no one can say they aren’t sporty. And when a tuner like Hamann makes it even sportier, the proverbial joy of driving becomes the ecstasy of racing!

I wrote before about the Hamann modifications over the X6. But back then, a gasoline engine was involved. But not any gasoline engine. The mother of all the X6’s engines, the V8, 4.4 liter turbo one. Equipping the X6M V8, it deliveres stellar performance, but adjusted by the famous german tuner, it transforms the coupe-SUV into a rocket: 640 hp and 840 Nm @2200 – 5000 rpm.

Lately, Hamann started to work at the top-diesel powertrain from the Bavarian manufacturer: the 3 liter, turbo-diesel V6, which equips the M50d. In its standard configuration, it returns 381 hp and 740 Nm, enough to propel the crossover to 100 km/h in 5.2 seconds. But that’s only the beginning. After the modifications, Hamann did what it does best: raising the power to 455 hp and 890 Nm. Let’s not forget that we deal with a 2993 cmc engine! That’s an impressive 152 hp / liter!

Bodybuilder and sprinter in one package – F86 BMW X6M by Hamann

If you’re a big SUV-coupe fan, this article will certainly make you happy. Because it has all the ingredients: X6M, V8 sound, fast take offs, Monaco and a 23 inch wheels set. All of them are enclosed, thanks to a flawless package, made by Hamann.

The final result is an intriguing mix of style and aggressiveness, able to stun any car enthusiast. To make extra room for the super-wide 315/25 R23 tires, the german specialist widened the wheel houses by 40 mm, resulting a slightly wider body and a mean, muscular, powerful stance.

To impress even more and keep up with the hugely powerful engine, the car has been lowered by using a dedicated suspension kit. This ensures not only less body roll, but also a less-pronounced leaning in the fast turns, by lowering the center of gravity by 45 mm in front and 30 mm on the rear axle.
