Hamann Conqueror II - Click above for high-res image gallery
There were so many debuts at the Geneva Motor Show
this year that a few new cars
were bound to slip through the cracks. We happened to miss this custom Range Rover Sport
from Hamann, probably because the 670 horsepower Tycoon Evo M
was sharing the same stand. Named the Conqueror II, it follows up on Hamann's first take of the Range Rover Sport
that debuted a few years ago.
Benefiting from the RR Sport Supercharged's new 5.0-liter V8, the Conqueror II packs 560 horsepower and 506 lb-ft torque thanks to a revised engine management system and a sport exhaust. The exterior gets the full Hamann treatment, with a full body kit, carbon fiber hood, LED running lights and forged 23-inch wheels. Interior modifications are relatively subtle (the snakeskin seats in Conqueror I are thankfully absent) and include the usual stuff like embriodered mats, plus aluminum and carbon fiber accents. Hit the jump for full details, and high-res photos can be found in the gallery below.
Around the world, HAMANN-Motorsport is a renowned specialist for exclusive refinement of luxury automobiles. And with the CONQUEROR II, based on the high-end model Range Rover SPORT, the Laupheim-based company once again confirms that it is the top address when it comes to dynamic accessories and exciting car body design.
Already the self-confident exterior shape turns the CONQUEROR II into a real conqueror of longing looks on our roads. Perfectly manufactured wing extensions made of light composite material give the aerodynamics set a masculine look. This perfectly goes with the stylishly adjusted front bumper components with the four integrated LED daytime running lights and the carbon bonnet. The athletic appearance is perfected with the roof spoiler, the rear apron in a diffuser-look and the
The body refinements by HAMANN already render a dynamic appearance which also continues under the bonnet. The technology specialist allows the Range Rover SPORT 5,0 V8-Supercharged to achieve an engine performance of 560 hp / 412 kW at 6,500 r.p.m. (serial: 510 hp / 375 kW). At the same time, the maximum torque rises by 60 Nm to 685 Nm within the speed range of 2,500 to 5,500 r.p.m.U/min. Also the Diesel model is equipped with extra power. After the serial motronic has been re-programmed, the 3,0 TDV6-aggregates render 280 hp / 206 kW and supply the crankshaft with a maximum torque of 660 Nm.
The components of the HAMANN sports exhaust system render an earthy and impressive sound. The stainless steel end muffler with its four end pipes can be optionally amended by metal catalysts, sports manifold and a centre pipe set.
The rim programme is impressive in its dimension and variety. No matter if the customer seeks strikingly dynamic or elegant high-end rims – HAMANN offers a large variety of wheel designs and wheel sizes, such as a one-part wheel called Unique Forged Anodized measuring 23 inches. A unique design, produced in most modern forged technology and refined with an anodized surface are both hallmark and eponym at the same time. The recommended wheel-tyre combination for the front- and back axle is 11x23 inches with tyres measuring 315/25 R23.
Especially by the electronic HAMANN lowering kit, the XXL rims are further emphasised. The centre of gravity of the CONQUEROR II is lowered by 40 millimetres at the front- and by 30 millimetres at the back axle.
In addition to the serial interior, HAMANN accessories offers black-anodised aluminium combined with carbon applications. Pedals and foot rests render motorsports atmosphere and perfectly match the 6-part HAMANN decoration set made of carbon fibre. HAMANN offers an elegant boot mat with decorative stitching and an embroidered HAMANN logo for the Range Rover SPORT. Perfectly matching the latter is the floor mat set made of twisted pearl velours including another logo.
