Article by Christian Andrei, on August 26, 2009

Just in time for the Frankfurt Motor Show, Hamann revealed today the brand new Tycoon Evo, based on the Bmw X6. The revolutionary difference to its predecessor is the newly designed fender extensions and the striking rear.

As you can see from the photos, the new body kit of the car is enlarged with over 60 millimetres due to the new front wings and back wing extensions. An aggressive visual appearance is accentuated also by the new front bumper with integrated daytime running LEDs and the new hood.

The kit continues with the new side sills, roof spoiler, rear spoiler and the new rear bumper with integrated air diffuser and central exhaust system. The kit is completed by the Design Edition Race Anodized 23-inch forged wheels wrapped with tyres sized 315/25 R 23.

Under the hood, the X6 xDrive35i was boosted to 360 hp / 265 kW at 5230 rpm while the torque was raised by 140 Nm to 540 Nm in the rpm-range between 1300 and 5000. The speed limit was also increased to an impressive 275 km/h. For the xDrive30d Hamann also offers an upgrade to an impressive 265 PS / 195 kW and transfers a maximum torque of 600 Nm to the crankshaft.

The xDrive35d delivers now 320 PS / 235 KW and a sensational torque of 660 Nm at 2000 rpm. The maximum performance is offered for the xDrive50i: from 407 hp / 300 kW at 5,500 rpm to a spectacular 501 hp / 368 kW at 5,600 rpm and 700 Nm at 3,700 rpm.

Inside we find new accessories made of high-quality aluminium such as pedals and foot rests, but also a new set of 12 carbon fiber decoration pieces. 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.

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.
