Preview: Hamann Motorsport 2013 BMW 6-Series Gran Coupé
The image shows BMW’s sports sedan finished in a matte blue hue (or wrap, we’re not sure) and fitted with an assortment of aero parts.
These include side skirts, a new front bumper with enlarged air vents, possibly a matching rear bumper, a boot lid spoiler and a new sculpted hood with air scoops either painted in back or made from carbon fiber.
The 6-Series Gran Coupe also features a new set of alloy wheels and appears to ride on a lowered sports suspension.
Hamann will likely offer engine upgrades for the entire range.
For the new Range Rover Evoque, the German tuning firm has prepared an assortment of upgrades starting with the SUV’s exterior appearance.
A new wide bodykit adds 70mm to the Evoque’s front axle and 80mm to the rear making space for the 22-inch alloy wheels that are available in a selection of colors and designs, while there are also front and rear aprons, rocker panels and a larger roof spoiler.
The cabin can be clothed in custom leather with decorative stitching, while other options include personalized trims and floor mats.
In the performance department, Hamann offers a power kit for all three available engines. In the case of the 150hp and 190hp 2.2-liter inline-four turbo diesels, the tuner’s kit lifts output by 31HP and 65Nm (47.9 lb-ft), while the 240hp 2.0-liter turbocharged petrol engine receives a 38HP and 55Nm (40.5 lb-ft) boost.
A new 30mm lowered sports suspension helps (or at least promises to do so) improve the Evoque’s stance and handling.

Hamann offers customers a variety of alloy wheel designs, from the one-piece “Anniversary Evo” and “Anniversary Evo Black” 22-inch rims that come wrapped in 295/30 tires, to the forged lightweight “Edition Race Anodized” wheels.
Interior upgrades range from handcrafted stitching on the dashboard and seats to full-leather upholstery.
On the performance front, a power kit adds 31HP and 65Nm (47.9 lb-ft) to the 2.2 TD4 and 2.2 ED4 engines while the 2.2 Si4’s output rises by 38HP and 55Nm (40.5 lb-ft).
The new F10 M5 is the latest model from the Bavarian manufacturer to be tuned by Hamann Motorsport and it will be officially revealed in Geneva this week.
Starting with the styling package, the front and rear wings have been enlarged by 25 and 30mm respectively on each side, while the M5 also gets new front and rear bumpers that are said to reduce lift, side sills, and roof and boot lid spoilers.
Hamann’s M5 rides on a lowered suspension and new “Unique Forged II” forged or “Edition Race Anodized” 21-inch alloys wrapped in 265/30 front and 325/25 rear tires.
In the interior, Hamann replaces the standard leather upholstery with higher-grade leather and offers a range of bespoke accessories, from piano trims to Alcantara finishes and personalized floor mats.
Despite the more than adequate 560PS (552hp) and 680Nm (501 lb-ft) of the factory M5’s twin-turbocharged V8, Hamann is currently developing an upgrade that will result in an 160PS and 220Nm improvement for a total output of 720PS (710hp) and a peak torque of 900Nm (664 lb-ft).
The Guardian Evo is fitted with a body kit that comprises a significantly extended front bumper with larger air intakes, integrated daytime running lights plus LED fog- and full-beam lights.
It also stands out thanks to its carbon bonnet, which apart from being very light, has a “power dome” to enhance the engine’s ventilation. The wheel arches of the Cayenne have been widened by 120mm at the front and 160mm at the rear, while the styling package is rounded off with a new rear bumper with an integrated diffuser and twin steel exhaust pipes plus 23-inch alloy wheels with 315/25 Dunlop Sport Maxx tires.
The interior also gets the full Hamann treatment with embroidered and stitched leather among other things.
The Guardian Evo is 0.1 seconds faster in the 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) sprint at 4.6 seconds compared to the factory model’s 4.7 seconds, while its top speed has been increased to 300 km/h (187mph), up from 278 km/h (173mph).
The open-top model’s naturally-aspirated 6.2-liter V8 is upgraded with remapped electronics, a high performance exhaust system and a sports air filter that all do their part to lift output from 563hp (571PS) and 650Nm (479.3 lb-ft) to 627hp (636PS) and 680Nm(501.7 lb-ft) of torque.
The 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) sprint is dispatched in 3.6 seconds, 0.2 faster than the regular SLS AMG Roadster, while top speed has been increased from 317 to 320 km/h (197 to 199 mph).
Hamann claims that the Hawk Roadster’s aerodynamic package has been optimized in the wind tunnel. The redesigned front bumper reduces lift at the front axle and its larger air intakes along with the carbon hood’s extra outlets provide better cooling to the engine. The new body kit also increases the Roadster’s width by 120mm up front and 140mm at the back.
Other upgrades include the 30mm lowered coil-over suspension, a different set of 21-inch alloys, a rear diffuser and four exhaust pipes with a diameter of 90 mm.
Hamann developed a new wide-body aero package that transforms the looks (for the better or for the worse, we’ll let you be the judge of that) of the Panamera.
It includes a wider front bumper with additional vents on both corners, a new hood with vents, widened front and rear fenders with –you guessed it- vents, side skirts with –come on, do we really need to tell you?- vents, a restyled rear bumper which much to our surprise, gets…additional vents, and finally, a large rear wing to eliminate the chance you will go airborne.
The Cyrano also gains smoked headlamps and tail lamps along with bespoke exhaust pipes and new 22-inch rims in tires size 265/30 up front and 305/25 at the back.
In addition, Hamann offers an electronic module for the air suspension that lowers the ride height by up to 30mm, while it is also developing an engine kit for the Turbo model that includes a new ECU and sports exhaust system, which will lift the V8’s output by 80HP and 120Nm to 580HP and 820Nm (604.8 lb-ft) respectively.
As for the interior, Hamann’s comprehensive program includes a full leather or Alcantara treatment in many available colors, an aluminum pedal set and bespoke trim accents.
