2014 BMW X5 gets a widebody kit from Hamann

Article by Andrew Christian, on July 16, 2014

Not impressed by the looks of your brand new 2014 BMW X5 (F15)? Then you probably need to take a look at the new wide body kit unveiled by Hamann, the well-known tuning company.

As you can see from the photos, the BMW X5 gets a completely new look thanks to the new body kit consisting of a front bumper with integrated LED daytime running leds, side sills, front fenders, enlarged front and rear wheel arches, a rear roof spoiler and a redesigned rear bumper with integrated exhaust system and air diffuser.

The design is completed by the new multi-spoke wheels offered in any colour you want to. There are no details regarding any engine upgrades, which means you will have to stick with the 3.0-liter six-cylinder diesel engine offered on the X5 M50d that comes with three-stage turbocharging and common rail direct injection.

The engine delivers 381 hp (280 kW) and 740 Nm (546 lb-ft) of torque and can push the vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.3 seconds, while offering an average fuel consumption of 6.7 litres per 100 km.

Still, if you want a petrol engine, you should get the 4.4-liter V8 that delivers 450 hp and 650 Nm of torque. With this engine, the BMW X5 sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.0 seconds, while top speed is 250 km/h or 155 mph.
