BMW tuning some times go right and other times it goes wrong. On rare occasions though, it goes pretty much both ways.
That’s probably the simplest way of describing the BMW X6 M Tycoon EVO by Hamann. The performance is great, the look, not really.
To some degree that’s exactly what one can say about the BMW X6 M’s standard version. With the Hamann tuned version the limits of aesthetics seem to be pushed too far though.
The newly fitted body kit is wide, bulbous, rough looking and covered in vents, wings and spoilers that don’t exactly help.
Thankfully, Hamann tuning have spent quite a bit of time on the production of the power that spews out the huge twin exhausts in the middle of the car’s rear end.
That nearly scary sound comes from BMW’s 4.4 liter twin-turbo V8 engine. At the core it’s still the same engine, but there are quite a few differences.
The end result is that the Hamann Tycoon EVO produces 670 bhp at 6000 rpm and 576 lb-ft of torque all of which is available between 1500 and 5650 rpm.
With that considerable boost in power it’s now wonder Hamann have had to sacrifice the looks in order to make the car a viable option.
The chase for high speed stability and aerodynamics left no room for the BMW X6 M Tycoon EVO to be pretty. I don’t think it’s a fair trade-off but there’s certainly plenty of people out there who will.
