Hamann Rolls-Royce Phantom – Click above for a high-res image gallery

With seemingly ever luxury automaker under the sun going after BMW's coveted balance between sport and luxury, it's a little ironic that BMW's own uber-luxury marque is the one to focus purely on cushioned comfort. But not everyone wants that out of their Rolls-Royce, or so Hamann is evidently betting. The German tuning firm has tweaked everything from Bimmer crossovers to Ferrari supercars and everything in between, but has now turned its attention to the Rolls-Royce Phantom range.

Few details are available at this point, but from what we can tell, Hamann has treated the Phantom saloon and Drophead Coupe to a set of 23" rims in case the standard 21" wheels weren't big enough, apparently ditching the self-righting emblem hubs in the process. A power boost is also said to be in the mix, bringing the 6.75-liter V12's output up from 460 horsepower to a more stately 535, and torque up from 720 newton-meters (531 lb-ft) to 835 Nm (615 lb-ft). With the electronic limiter removed, the Hamann-tuned Phantoms are said to be good for 300 km/h (187 mph), to be controlled from the plush interior via a specially-crafted sports steering wheel.

      Hardly adrenaline. More like NoDoz with a Scotch chaser.

      Having a sportier version of a Phantom is like having an off-road version of an Elise. It just makes no sense.

        Additionally, sporty wheels on that kind of car = NO.

      Next up, stretched Lincoln Town car Limo with NOS. Good for 2000hp!!

      Seriously though, why would anyone screw with a Rolls like this?

        Now the only question is, does it have butterfly doors?

      More like a shot of ugly.
