Hamann Tycoon EVO MMarch 16, 2011, No Comments »
HAMANN-Motorsport, the renowned specialist for exquisite BMW refinements, shows its latest developments for the BMW X6 M at the 81st International Motor Show in Geneva. The masculine show piece on the 200 square metre HAMANN stand is the TYCOON EVO M based on the BMW X6 M with 670 hp / 493 kW and a top speed of 300 km/h.
The TYCOON EVO M – powerful appearance with stunning design
Looking at the TYCOON EVO M and its broad built shape whets one´s appetite. Especially the front mudguards and the rear extensions made of light component material contribute to this feeling. The car body is widened by an amazing 60 millimetres. Additionally, the HAMANN designers replace the sides with newly designed side skirts. An unmistakable hallmark of the front is the apron with four striking LED daylight running lights. The car body kit does not only enhance the look of the car, its enlarged air inlets the front and the carbon bonnet also provide an optimized air supply to the engine compartment. At the back of the X6 M, HAMANN replaces the original apron with a new own development which provides spaces for the earthy sounds produced by the sports exhaust system with centre double end pipes. Also new within the refining programme are rear lights with LED technology. The back of the TYCOON EVO M is perfected with shapely rear- and roof spoilers. All those components render a low-swirl air flow over the car silhouette and provide additional downforce.
Extensive performance plus thanks to optimised exhaust gas stream
In addition to the spectacular appearance of the TYCOON EVO M, the HAMANN engine department developed a powerful performance enhancement for the serial engine. The most important part for the power increase is the titanium high-performance exhaust system with catalyst replacement pipes which also renders a dynamic and earthy sound. A newly programmed engine map perfects the upgrade and owing to the removal of the 250km/h speed limit, the driver now has an unlimited driving experience.
Resulting from the modifications, the X6 M now has 670 hp / 493 kW at 6,000 r.p.m. and 950 Newton metres torque at 1,500 – 5,650 r.p.m. These are additional 115 hp and 100 Newton metres compared to the serial version. Therefore, the 4WD automobile accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in only 4.2 seconds and reaches a top speed of 300 km/h.
