Hamann is well-known for its tuning kits developed for cars such as the Bmw X6 or the X5, but it appears that the German tuner now focused its attention to smaller models. As a result, it revealed today its customization programme for the Bmw X3 (F25). The first visual impact with the car, shows the impressive 22-inch Anniversary EVO wheels, but for those who want 21-inch wheels are also available.
Both versions are wrapped in high-performance Vredestein Ultrac Vorti R tyres in 265/30 ZR 21 size. These tyres can break the 300 km/h (186 mph) barrier. As expected, Hamann also offers some ECU upgrades for the petrol engines (X3 xDrive 20i, 28i and 35i).
For example, the 3.0-liter petrol engine found on the X3 xDrive 35i now produces an impressive 348 hp (266 kW) instead of the standard 306 hp (225 kW), and the maximum torque jumps from 400 to 449 Nm.
Still, diesel engines are not forgotten and Hamann offers upgrade for the X3 xDrive 18D, 20D, 30D and 35d.
The 3.0-liter diesel engine found on the X3 xDrive 35d now delivers 355 hp (260 kW) and a maximum torque of 695 instead of 313 hp (230 kW) and 630 newton metres. A lowering kit is available too and the Bmw X3 is now 35 mm closer to the ground.
