Hamann Hawk Roadster based on Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster

Article by Christian Andrei, on March 5, 2012

Hamann Motorsport has decided to make a customization package for the Roadster version of the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG. Dubbed the Hamann Hawk Roadster, this vehicle gets a powerful engine, a unique body design, and a matte-red lacquer finish. It boasts a stunning look as well as a sound that’s soothing to the ears.

It comes with aerodynamic parts that reduce the upthrust, stainless-steel exhaust systems with a sporty sound, remarkable 21-inch light-metal rims and deluxe interior revisions to enhance the individuality of this series vehicle. The stock SLS already offers an outstanding engine output but Hamann has added power reserves to this V8 engine.

Its engine also has been given a high-performance exhaust system made of stainless steel. With the help of a sports air filter, this system generates an earthy and strong sound from its 6.2 litre aggregate. Its parts were subjected to precise adjustments with the aid of a new engine characteristic map for motor electronics.

It has a top performance of 636 hp / 468 kW and comes with a maximum torque of 680 Nm at 4,850 r.p.m. First-class specifications are found in this performance enhanced wing door automobile.

When in race start mode, the two-seater can sprint from zero to 100 km/h in just 3.6 seconds and could reach a top speed of 320 km/h. The Hamann Hawk Roadster also exceeds the basis model. This model offers an outstanding driving performance but this is matched with a terrific appearance and aerodynamics that were tested in the wind tunnel. The serial bumper is replaced by the Hamann Hawk Roadster front apron.

Because of its shape, the uplifting forces at the front axle are reduced. The two- seater has an even more dynamic look with its bigger air inlets in connection with a new LED lights unit. Furthermore, the bigger air inlets give improved access for the engine's raised need for fresh air. As a result, the air is drawn out of new bonnet built from checkered flag carbon.

Its wing measures 60mm on each front side and 70mm on each rear side, making its look more striking. Its side skirts allow the convertible to be lower and more extended and underline the rims. Its new rear apron with the diffuser improves the air flow under the bottom of the car and offers room for four huge end pipes that measure 90 mm each in diameter.

Hamann makes use of the single-part, particularly light forged wheels "Unique Forged Anodized" in 21 inches, to have perfect comfort and control. The coilover kit was specifically refined for the Hamann Hawk Roadster. With the four height-adjustable dampers and four progressively wound springs, its center of gravity could be dropped by as much as 30 millimetres.
