Hamann has turned its hand to the Porsche Macan S Diesel, and while we appreciate the company's performance upgrades, the exterior work isn't so successful.
The tuners at Hamann have gotten their hands on the Lamborghini Aventador and are offering a suite of stealthy upgrades and a boost in power for buyers who don't think Lambo's top model is already enough. The company wants to create a special model with "uniqueness in every way."
Anyone remember the Hamann Mirror? Need a refresher? The Mirror is German tuning company Hamann's idea of a BMW M6. It was shown at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show as an M6 Gran Coupe, sporting a ridiculous paint job and some meaty, multi-spoke 21-inch wheels.
Hamann Motorsport made a big splash at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show with a modified Lamborghini Aventador. The metallic orange monster has been rechristened the Hamann Nervudo, and packs an extra 60 horsepower and 34 pound-feet of torque, thanks to a few tweaks to the ECU. The other big mechanical change is an optional exhaust, which we're told exists solely to spit fire. Doesn't the Aventador do that already?
Oh, Hamann. After rolling out the ridiculously pink Mystère at this year's Geneva Motor Show, the tuning company has worked its mirror-finishing magic on the BMW M6 Gran Coupe, debuting this, the aptly named "Mirror" at the Frankfurt Motor Show. It sure is shiny, and a full 40 millimeters wider than the standard M6 GC.
Pink, mirror-finish paint. Or as Hamann says, "a color that exhibits nothing more but self-confidence." Basically, tuning company Hamann has created a vehicle that looks like it comes as part of the "Sex, Drugs and Rock N' Roll" Edition Barbie play set.
We've come to rely on Hamann to supply the world with a range of over-the-top modified vehicles. While the company's tastes rarely dovetail with our own, we're absolutely smitten with the memoR on display at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. The company apparently set forth with the intention of giving the McLaren MP4-12C a more aggressive exterior. Mission accomplished.
So, you find the Mercedes-Benz SLS Roadster a bit too demure for your tastes. You're either high enough to play hopscotch in the clouds or suffering from some sort of psychosis. Maybe both. You're likely also the target demographic for the red sled you see above.
Hamann has a knack for taking already impressive-performing vehicles and turning up the heat a few degrees. The styling choices along the way are hit or miss, but the vehicles always turn heads. One of the tuning company's latest vehicles is the Hamann 6 Series Cabriolet, which is quite clearly a BMW 6 Series with a host of upgrades.
