Tuner Special: Hamann Rocks BMW M6

Date posted: 02-17-2006

LAUPHEIM, Germany — Hamann Automobile Technik + Design, the BMW tuning specialist, has further tapped the latent potential in the already sensational M6 coupe, boosting engine output and performance to new heights.

Hamann offers three different engine tuning options on the car's 5.0-liter V10, which, in stock trim, delivers 500 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque. Top speed is electronically limited to 155 mph. At the first tuning level, Hamann upgrades the wheels and tires, and removes the speed governor, which lifts top speed to 185 to 200 mph.

At the second stage, Hamann also reprograms the engine computer to boost output by 30 hp and torque by 11 lb-ft. The third stage adds high-performance exhaust headers, metallic sports catalytic converters, a performance air filter and muffler, and removes all electronic engine restrictions. Output of the V10 jumps by 60 hp, with torque climbing by 40 lb-ft. Top speed peaks at around 200 mph.

Hamann's aero add-ons include a chin spoiler in fiberglass or Kevlar, a completely new front apron with integral high-beam headlamps, side skirts, a tail spoiler, a roof spoiler, and a rear apron with integrated diffuser.

Hamann also offers a number of chassis enhancements, as well as a wide variety of wheel/tire upgrades and interior accessories. For more information, see the company's Web site at www.hamann-motorsport.de.

What this means to you: Even BMW's ultimate M Series cars can be tweaked to go just a little faster.

Hot car! I especially like the rims (I believe they are Radenergies...don't look like Hamanns anyways). Those top speed readings dont seem correct though. I have seen vids of a stock M5 doing 200+, and I can't imagine the M6 has more drag than the M5, so I wouldn't be suprised if those mods push it well over 200.
