Although it specializes in tuning a wide range of cars from Audis to Ferraris, the company founded by Richard Hamann in 1986 has linked its name mostly to BMW's performance models.
The new F10 M5 is the latest model from the Bavarian manufacturer to be tuned by Hamann Motorsport and it will be officially revealed inGeneva this week.
Starting with the styling package, the front and rear wings have been enlarged by 25 and 30mm respectively on each side, while the M5 also gets new front and rear bumpers that are said to reduce lift, side sills, and roof and boot lid spoilers.
Hamann's M5 rides on a lowered suspension and new “Unique Forged II” forged or “Edition Race Anodized” 21-inch alloys wrapped in 265/30 front and 325/25 rear tires.
In the interior, Hamann replaces the standard leather upholstery with higher-grade leather and offers a range of bespoke accessories, from piano trims to Alcantara finishes and personalized floor mats.
Despite the more than adequate 560PS (552hp) and 680Nm (501 lb-ft) of the factory M5's twin-turbocharged V8, Hamann is currently developing an upgrade that will result in an 160PS and 220Nm improvement for a total output of 720PS (710hp) and a peak torque of 900Nm (664 lb-ft).
Considering that the bog-standard M5 accelerates from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 4.4 seconds and tops out at 305 km/h (190 mph) with the “M Driver’s” package, the finished item should post some pretty impressive figures.
