Hamann BMW X6 Tycoon Evo – Click above for high-res image gallery

As far as sport-utilities go, the BMW X6 clearly leans towards the "sport" side of the spectrum. But for those seeking a little more aggression in their "Sports Activity Coupé," German tuning house Hamann has you covered. Back in January, the German tuning house let loose the Tycoon mod kit for the X6, but in case that wasn't enough, they'll be coming to Frankfurt in a couple of weeks with the even more extreme Tycoon Evo.

Hamann's tuning program for the X6 permeates the entire range, so no matter what kind of engine you've got under the hood, there are performance enhancements on offer. The six-cylinder xDrive35i has been upgraded from 306 horsepower to 360, the diesel xDrive30d boosted from 235 hp to 265, the more powerful xDrive35d from 286 hp to 320, and the top-of-the-line xDrive50i from 407 to a massive 500.

Visually, the Tycoon Evo gets a body kit 60mm wider than stock, with a new front fascia, side skirts, diffuser with twin center-exit exhaust tips and a pair of rear spoilers. LED lights, 23-inch wheels and an aluminum and carbon fiber interior trim kit also form part of the package, which you can check out in the gallery of images below and the press release after the jump.

PRESS RELEASE:

Already for the eights time, HAMANN-Motorsport presents its exclusive refining program at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

In hall 5.0, exhibition stand B.32, the renowned BMW specialist and tuner of the most excellent luxury sports cars presents it latest developments. One of the displayed highlights of the 450 square meter large HAMANN stand is the world premiere of the TYCOON EVO which is based on the BMW X6. The revolutionary difference to its predecessor is the newly designed fender extensions and the striking rear. The visual and sonorous highlights of the rear part are the earthy sports exhaust system with the remarkable center double end pipes.

The TYCOON EVO- an auto-body pack which sets benchmarks

Already the design department at HAMANN-Motorsport ensures that the TYCOON EVO meets the expectations in his name. They designed and developed an impressive broad makeover for this BMW crossover model and ensured that all accessories reflect and perfect the shape of the car. The masculine appearance of the TYCOON EVO is mainly emphasized by its new front wings and back wing extensions made of light composite material. They broaden the body by striking 60 millimeters. The perfectly designed side skirts render the optical connection while the front apron is an outstanding eye-catcher with its large air inlets and the LED daytime running lights under the serial headlights. At the rear of the X6, HAMANN engineers replaced the original skirt with an own development. This makes place for the sporty and earthy exhaust system with the center double end pipes. The back appearance of the TYCOON EVO is enhanced by a rear- and roof spoiler. It goes without saying that all used HAMANN-components do not only convince with their design but also with their aerodynamics. They ensure an optimised air flow over the car silhouette and render an additional downthrust.

Perfectly styled from head to toe - the suitable rim in XXL format


The suitable rim for the broad makeover of the BMW X6 is the DESIGN EDITION RACE ANODIZED. The ultra-light forged wheel combines both agility and also elegance. The black rim star and the titanium bolting underline the dynamics of the wheel. The highly polished rim flange on the contrary gives the car a noble impression. HAMANN offers the 23-inch wheel with tires sized 315/25 R 23. Special chassis springs fantastically enhance the light alloy wheels. Thereby, progressively coiled springs lower the barycentre of this Sports Utility Vehicle by maximally 40 millimeters at the front- and back axle.

HAMANN performance kits - from tycoon to typhoon

The choice of different HAMANN performance kits is as manifold as the selection of BMW engines. The tuning expert bestows the X6 xDrive35i with an engine output of 360 hp / 265 kW at 5230 rpm. Parallelly, the maximum torque rises by 140 Nm to 540 Nm in the rpm-range between 1300 and 5000. At the same time, HAMANN also suspends the speed limit of 250 km/h and allows impressive 275 km/h.

The Diesel series also profits from extra power. After the serial motronic is re-programmed, the xDrive30d has 265 PS / 195 kW and transfers a maximum torque of 600 Nm to the crankshaft. The engine variation xDrive35d also turns into a racy sprinter: HAMANN is able to tease 320 PS / 235 KW and a sensational torque of 660 Nm at 2000 rpm out of the Diesel car.

The maximum performance enhancement HAMANN offers is for the eight-cylinder model xDrive50i. By using a new motor electronics map and by applying metal catalysts and the matching sport exhaust system, the engine output increase to 501 hp / 368 kW at 5,600 r.p.m. (serial version: 407 hp / 300 kW at 5,500 r.p.m.). The maximum torque rises to enormous 700 Nm at 3,700 r.p.m (serial version: 600 Nm at 1,750 r.p.m.). Also the maximum speed rises significantly and only misses the 300 km/h notch by a whisker.

The inner values of HAMANN - noble accessories for the TYCOON EVO interior

In addition to the present, serial inner design, HAMANN offers accessories made of high-quality aluminium. Pedals and foot rests render motorsports sensations and perfectly match the 12-part HAMANN decoration set made of carbon fibre. An instrument dial with a scaling up to 300 km/h and a 3-spoke sport steering wheel further underline the sportive overall appearance of the TYCOON EVO. For the boot of the X6, HAMANN offers an elegant and also practical boot mat with chequered decorative stitching and an embroidered logo.

      I liked the X6 until I saw it in person. In pictures it seemed like a 3-series sized hatchback with your usual CUV high ground clearance, In real life however it's this SUV sized monstrosity that closely resembles a Bumblebee in shape.

      I know it will be popular with some crowds, but to me it just looks way too busy.

      "The perfectly designed side skirts render the optical connection... they ensure an optimised air flow over the car silhouette and render an additional downthrust."

      When you're charging tens of thousands of dollars for an ECU chip and a bodykit, Hamann, you can probably afford to not have the high-school intern write your press releases...

      Still don't like it.
      • 5 Years Ago
      I don't know why, but I just love the X6. Everything about it screams that I should hate it - I can't stand SUVs, I can't stand slopeback hatches, I can't huge oversized tires, I can't stand the Honda Crosstour, yet for some inexplicable reason, it all comes together for me in the X6. I probably need some sort of therapy.

        @ Rhawb

        I'm the same way, minus hating slopeback hatches, or at least all of them. I know I should never like the X6, but the complete idiocy of it just appeals to me for some reason.

        The street presence of a garbage truck is also unmistakable.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Thanks, I'll take an X6 M, have better performance, save a grip of cash, and only be a moderate D-bag.

      In all seriousness, I would not mind an X6 M.
      • 5 Years Ago
      No thanks. I don't want rice tonight honey.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Given the country of origin this is kraut, not rice.
        • 5 Years Ago
        With all the horrible "tuner" cars coming out of Europe these days I think it's time to come up with a new word for awful euro "sports" bodywork.
        Kielbasaing? Sauerkrauting? Viennese Sausaging? Schnitzeling?
        STOP SCHNITZELING YOUR CARS!
        • 5 Years Ago
        True, but the ricers will love this. It looks bad enough to be kraut with a side of rice.
