Hamann Flash Evo M based on Bmw X5 M

Article by Christian A., on November 20, 2010

HAMANN-Motorsport is previewing at the 80th Geneva Motor Show the Hamann TYCOON EVO M, a masculine reinterpretation of the BMW X6 M. It is powered by an enhanced version of the X6 M’s serial engine that has been made more powerful in terms of output and torque as well as sound, thanks to a stainless steel high performance exhaust system with metal catalyzers. Hamann employed a newly programmed map for the serial motronic, thereby lifting the speed limit from 250 km/h to 300 km/h.

These tweaks allowed the Hamann TYCOON EVO M to offer up to 670 hp (493 kW) of output available at 6,000 rpm (plus 115 hp) and up to 780 Nm of torque available at between 1,500 and 5,650 rpm (plus 100 Nm). These figures allow Hamann TYCOON EVO M to sprint from zero to 100kph in just 4.2 seconds. This potential is well conveyed by its striking shape and the stunning exterior design of the Hamann TYCOON EVO M.

For instance, the Hamann TYCOON EVO M features front and the rear wing extensions -- made from light composite materials – that expands the body by around 20 mm. Moreover, the sides of the vehicle are fitted with newly designed side skirts while the front end is marked by an apron with four LED daytime running lights. Ventilation for the engine of the Hamann TYCOON EVO M comes courtesy of enlarged air inlets in the front and on the carbon bonnet.

HAMMAN also fitted its own original rear skirt to pave the way for the sports exhaust system, which features centrally positioned double-end pipes. Accentuating the rear end of the Hamman TYCOON EVO M are rear- and roof spoilers that provide a low-swirling airflow as well as additional downforce. Of course, HAMANN has provided the TYCOON EVO M with specially made Unique Forge anodized wheels -- 11.0 x 23 inches at the front and 12.0 x 23 inches at the rear – wrapped in 315/25 R 23 tires.

These light alloy wheels -- a product of most modern forged technology – features dynamically shaped anodized cross spokes that ensure even weight distribution and higher bearing loads. HAMANN also endowed the vehicle with its own HAMANN lowering kit, which includes progressively coiled springs on the front and a modification kit for the rear. As a result, the tweaked SUV is now lower by 40 mm. While the TYCOON EVO M sports an interior seen in the X6 M, it does have a number of cabin elements made by HAMANN.

These include black-anodized aluminum accessories and certain carbon applications, particularly the 12-part HAMANN carbon-fiber decoration and the three-spoke sports steering wheel. Meanwhile, the luggage compartment is specified with a practical boot mat featuring diamond-shaped decorations and an embroidered logo.

Press Release

HAMANN-Motorsport presents the TYCOON EVO M based on the new BMW X6 M

HAMANN-Motorsport, the renowned specialist for exquisite refinements of BMW-automobiles shows its latest developments on the 80th Geneva Motor Show. The masculine show-piece on the HAMANN exhibition stand with 200 square metres is the world premiere of the 670 hp/493kW strong and 300 km/h fast TYCOON EVO M based on the BMW X6 M.

The TYCOON EVO M - powerful appearance with striking design

Already the shape of the TYCOON EVO M with its impressive broad built gives a good hint of what is to be discovered. Mainly responsible for that are the front and the rear wing extensions made of light composite materials. These let the body expand by impressive 60 millimetres. Additionally, the HAMANN designers enhanced the sides with the newly designed side skirts. The distinctive hallmark of the front is the apron with the four striking LED daytime running lights. But the body set does not only emphasise the appearance, enlarged air inlets in the front and the carbon bonnet allow an optimised air ventilation of the engine compartment. At the X6 M rear, HAMANN also replaces the original skirt with an own development. This makes room for the earthy sounding sports exhaust system with the centrally positioned double end pipes. The rear view of the TYCOON EVO M is perfected with beautifully designed rear- and roof spoilers. All of those components produce a low-swirling airflow over the vehicle silhouette and render additional downthrust.

Rich performance enhancement thanks to optimised exhaust gas flow

In addition to the spectacular shape of the TYCOON EVO M the HAMANN engine department added a powerful performance enhancement for the serial engine. The most significant component for the performance enhancement and responsible for the dynamic and earthy sound of the TYCOON EVO M is the stainless steel high performance exhaust system with metal catalysers. A newly programmed map for the serial motronic completes the upgrade and suspending the speed limit of 250 km/h allows unrestrained driving pleasures.

As a result of the modifications, the X6 M now offers 670 hp / 493 kW at 6,000 r.p.m. and 780 Nm torque at 1,500 - 5,650 r.p.m. This is a surplus of 115 hp and 100 Nm compared to the serial version. Therefore, the all-wheel accelerated from 0 to 100 in only 4,2 seconds and reaches a maximum speed of 300 km/h.

Varying rim designs and sizes

Specially adjusted to the increased requirements of the TYCOON EVO M, the refining specialist presents varying wheel designs and sizes. A highlight concerning styling and technology is the rim model UNIQUE FORGED ANODIZED produced in most modern forged technology. The dynamic shape of the delicate, anodised cross spokes does not only lead to a dynamic and striking look, but also results in an even weight distribution and therefore guarantees higher bearing loads. HAMANN offers the 23-inch wheel in the dimensions 11.0 x 23 at the front- and 12.0 x 23 at the rear axle, combined with wheels measuring 315/25 R 23.

The light alloy wheels are especially emphasised with the HAMANN lowering kit. Progressively coiled springs at the front axle and a modification kit for the rear axle thereby lower the centre of gravity of the Sports Utility Vehicle by approx. 40 millimetres.

Most noble interior applications underline the motor sports atmosphere

In addition to the existing factory-provided interior, HAMANN offers accessories made of black-anodised aluminium in combination with carbon applications. Pedals and foot rest render motor sports air and perfectly match the 12-part HAMANN decoration set made of carbon fibre. An three-spoke sports steering wheel additionally render the TYCOON EVO M a dynamic overall appearance. For the luggage compartment in the back of the X6 M, HAMANN offers an elegant and practical boot mat with diamond-shaped decorations and an embroidered logo.
