Hamann has always been known for its slogan of “Nothing is impossible.” This was proven when Hamann revealed the extensive parts programme it used for the Porsche Cayenne Turbo. Based in Laupheim, the company has been around since 1986, developing products aimed at improving sporty automobiles. Technicians of the company used the knowledge gained from the numerous successful motor sports races and it is this competence that they use which becomes the foundation for the Hamann refining programme.
The different results include having a firm sports brake system, aerodynamic parts that help lower the uplifting forces, and powerful performance improvements. Extending the product range even further are the exquisite interior modifications that include carbon and aluminum as well as the light XXL alloy rims. With its new design, the Hamann Guardian is now an attention grabber that gives on-road and off-road driving pleasures.
Highlighting the quality of its aerodynamics kit are the perfect surfaces and the custom-made production. The front part is now more dynamic with the main feature being the front apron that has been extended farther and that houses the large air inlets. While the full beam headlights and the fog light already come with LED technology, the addition of the integrated daylight running lights, which also use LED, boost the passive safety of the vehicle.
The front engine benefits from having an ultra-light carbon bonnet, that has a slit "power dome", since it allows for optimal ventilation. Its muscular appearance is all thanks to the wing extensions and its side skirts which lengthen the vehicle at the front by 120 mm and at the back by 160 mm.
Completing this perfect appearance is the integrated diffuser on the rear apron. The rear apron also allows for the two central stainless steel end pipes, each having a width of 120 mm, which underscores the deep sports exhaust system. In addition to having amazing sound, this South German customization expert also made sure to increase the performance.
By being able to combine different components like an optimized engine map, sports air filter, sports catalysts, and sports silencer, the performance has been upped to 550 hp / 405 kW, which is possible at 6,100 rpm. Torque has been increased as well and is now 770 Nm and available from 2,300 rpm to 4,600 rpm. Because of this, the improved Porsche-SUV has a 300 km/h top speed with acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in merely 4.6 seconds.
Capable of excellent deceleration, the Hamann Guardian owes this to the CERAMIC sports brake system that was developed alongside MOV´IT. On the front are the six-piston calipers with brake discs measuring 420 x 40 mm, while the rear has the four-piston calipers with the 380 x 32 mm brake discs.
When it comes to the wheel-tyre combination, the company suggests the ultra-light Unique Forged 11Jx23 inch rims, which fits the 315/25 R23 Dunlop Sport Maxx tyres and give it an individual yet powerful look. Improving its virile appearance even further is the Hamann underbody components.
Since the Cayenne has air suspension, the company made sure to develop for this a sports module. Because of this, it is possible to lower the Hamann Guardian for a maximum of 35 mm. For its interior, Hamann made sure to exclusively use first class materials.
The dashboard has masterly stitched embroideries with the seats getting an additional emphasis due to the amazing overall impression resulting from the full leather equipment. Its steering wheel has been redesigned and this allow for a more comfortable grip. Enhancing the center consoles and instruments is the use of carbon components.
