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.
