2012 Geneva Motor Show Preview: Hamann upgrades the 2012 Bmw M5

Article by Christian Andrei, on March 5, 2012

Hamann unveiled today its tuning program for the all-new 2012 Bmw M5 and as expected, the new car is more powerful, more attractive and has an interior that can be customized as the customer wants. The first visual impact with the car shows a new body kit consisting of a new front bumper with integrated daytime running LEDs, new side sills, a rear roof spoiler, a rear trunk spoiler and a new rear bumper with integrated air inlets. Moreover, the wings of the car were extended by 25 mm on the front and by 30 mm on the rear.

The design of the car is completed by the new 21-inch Hamann Unique Forged II wheels, wrapped in high performance Continental Sport Contact 5P tyres. In addition, the car’s centre of gravity has been lowered by 30 millimetres thanks to the new special chassis springs. The 4.4-liter twin turbo V8 engine has also been upgraded using a high-performance sports muffler, as well as a new engine-management system.

As a result, the total output delivered by the engine is 720 hp and 800 Nm of torque. For those who don’t know, the standard M5 delivers 560 hp and 680 Nm of torque. The interior of the car has also been customized and now features the finest leather as well as a new set of aluminium pedals.

Piano lacquer, leather or Alcantara finishes – all are available on request to add extra thrill to the ride. From the personalised floor-mat set to the full-leather upholstery, everything is produced by hand to precision standard, and individually designed and integrated into the vehicle by master craftsmen.
