2010 Geneva Motor Show: Hamann Tycoon Evo M based in Bmw X6 M

Article by Christian Andrei, on March 1, 2010

How a vehicle looks on the outside hints at what kind of performance it could provide. That is very true with HAMANN’s Tycoon Evo M, which features an aggressive shape, broad built and dynamic exterior enhancements, signifying a fierceness dwelling at its core.

Based on the BMW X6 M, the Tycoon Evo M features a characteristic wide shape thanks to its front and the rear wing extensions that widened the vehicle by 60 mm. Those extensions are made of light composite materials.

Its sides are further enhanced with newly designed side skirts. Bringing more distinction to the front of the Tycoon Evo M is an apron featuring four striking LED daytime running lights. Aside from giving the vehicle a more dynamic appearance, enlarged air inlets on the front and the carbon bonnet help optimize air ventilation in the engine compartment.

On the other hand, HAMMAN also replaced the rear skirt of the vehicle with its own to give room for an ear-menacing sports exhaust system that features centrally positioned double end pipes. Accentuating the rear of the Tycoon Evo M are elegant rear- and roof spoilers.

These additional elements help produce a low-swirling airflow over the silhouette of Tycoon Evo M and thus provide additional downthrust.

To match the surge in power and the enhancement in body appearance, the Tycoon Evo M is available with an array wheel designs and sizes from HAMMAN.

One of these is the “Unique Forged Anodized” rim model that is made using the most modern forged technology. The wheel’s anodized cross spokes features a dynamic shape that does not only contribute to the vehicle’s striking appearance but also allows an even weight distribution for higher bearing loads.

Specifically available for the Tycoon Evo M are 23-inch wheels measuring 11.0 x 23 at the front axle, and 12.0 x 23 at the rear axle. They are wrapped in 315/25 R 23 tires. Giving more emphasis to the alloy wheels is HAMANN’s lowering kit, which includes progressively coiled springs at the front axle and a modification kit for the rear axle.

This kit lowered the Tycoon Evo M’s center of gravity by around 40 mm. The Tycoon Evo still has the BMW-provided interior. However, HAMMAN offers enhancement through accessories made of black-anodized aluminum and of carbon applications.

The tuner offers a 12-part HAMANN decoration set made from carbon fiber, complementing the SUV’s sports-like pedals and footrest. Additionally, the Tycoon Evo M features a three-spoke sports steering wheel. On the other hand, SUV’s luggage compartment features an elegant boot mat with diamond-shaped decorations and an embroidered logo.

Powertrain

At the core of the HAMMAN Tycoon Evo M is an engine that’s further made menacing by the tuner’s engine department.

For instance, HAMMAN engineers installed a stainless steel high-performance exhaust system with metal catalyzers on the vehicle. This modification should help enhance both the power and sound emitted by the engine.

Likewise, HAMMAN installed a newly programmed map for the serial motronic engine, which breaks the X6 M’s speed limit from 250 km/h to 300 km/h.

By the time the modifications are completed, drivers get access to 670 hp (493 kW) of output at 6,000 rpm and 780 Nm of torque at between 1,500 rpm and 5,650 rpm – a vast improvement of an extra 115 hp and 100 Nm over to the serial version.

As a result, the Tycoon Evo M is given the capability to accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in only 4.2 seconds and achieve a top speed of 300 km/h.

Press Release

HAMANN-Motorsport presents the TYCOON EVO M based on the new BMW X6 M

HAMANN-Motorsport, the renowned specialist for exquisite refinements of BMW-automobiles shows its latest developments on the 80th Geneva Motor Show. The masculine show-piece on the HAMANN exhibition stand with 200 square metres is the world premiere of the 670 hp/493kW strong and 300 km/h fast TYCOON EVO M based on the BMW X6 M.

The TYCOON EVO M – powerful appearance with striking design

Already the shape of the TYCOON EVO M with its impressive broad built gives a good hint of what is to be discovered. Mainly responsible for that are the front and the rear wing extensions made of light composite materials. These let the body expand by impressive 60 millimetres. Additionally, the HAMANN designers enhanced the sides with the newly designed side skirts. The distinctive hallmark of the front is the apron with the four striking LED daytime running lights. But the body set does not only emphasise the appearance, enlarged air inlets in the front and the carbon bonnet allow an optimised air ventilation of the engine compartment. At the X6 M rear, HAMANN also replaces the original skirt with an own development. This makes room for the earthy sounding sports exhaust system with the centrally positioned double end pipes. The rear view of the TYCOON EVO M is perfected with beautifully designed rear- and roof spoilers. All of those components produce a low-swirling airflow over the vehicle silhouette and render additional downthrust.

Rich performance enhancement thanks to optimised exhaust gas flow

In addition to the spectacular shape of the TYCOON EVO M the HAMANN engine department added a powerful performance enhancement for the serial engine. The most significant component for the performance enhancement and responsible for the dynamic and earthy sound of the TYCOON EVO M is the stainless steel high performance exhaust system with metal catalysers. A newly programmed map for the serial motronic completes the upgrade and suspending the speed limit of 250 km/h allows unrestrained driving pleasures.

As a result of the modifications, the X6 M now offers 670 hp / 493 kW at 6,000 r.p.m. and 780 Nm torque at 1,500 – 5,650 r.p.m. This is a surplus of 115 hp and 100 Nm compared to the serial version. Therefore, the all-wheel accelerated from 0 to 100 in only 4.2 seconds and reaches a maximum speed of 300 km/h.

Varying rim designs and sizes

Specially adjusted to the increased requirements of the TYCOON EVO M, the refining specialist presents varying wheel designs and sizes. A highlight concerning styling and technology is the rim model UNIQUE FORGED ANODIZED produced in most modern forged technology. The dynamic shape of the delicate, anodised cross spokes does not only lead to a dynamic and striking look, but also results in an even weight distribution and therefore guarantees higher bearing loads. HAMANN offers the 23-inch wheel in the dimensions 11.0 x 23 at the front- and 12.0 x 23 at the rear axle, combined with wheels measuring 315/25 R 23.

The light alloy wheels are especially emphasised with the HAMANN lowering kit. Progressively coiled springs at the front axle and a modification kit for the rear axle thereby lower the centre of gravity of the Sports Utility Vehicle by approx. 40 millimetres.

Most noble interior applications underline the motor sports atmosphere

In addition to the existing factory-provided interior, HAMANN offers accessories made of black-anodised aluminium in combination with carbon applications. Pedals and foot rest render motor sports air and perfectly match the 12-part HAMANN decoration set made of carbon fibre. An three-spoke sports steering wheel additionally render the TYCOON EVO M a dynamic overall appearance. For the luggage compartment in the back of the X6 M, HAMANN offers an elegant and practical boot mat with diamond-shaped decorations and an embroidered logo.
