Hamann M5





603 BHP
Hamann, a German tuning specialist for BMW vehicles, is crowning its tuning lineup with its latest creation, the M5. The high-revving 5 litre V10 with 507 bhp and 520 Nm is not allowed to show off the full effect of its power in the production version, but just how fast might the M5 be able to go?

Hamann says 327 km/h, which is achieved solely by means of Vmax override. For those who are not satisfied and who desire even more power, Hamann offers them a solution too. The Laupheim-based tuner provides the M5 with a sports-kit composed of high-performance headers, sports metal catalysts, a engine map optimisation and a Vmax-override. The 10-cylinder engine then produces a potent 603 hp and 574 Nm.

Hamann adorns the exterior of the M5 with new aerodynamic components. For example, a front spoiler, which is attached to the standard front bumper, helps to create greater downforce. Alternatively, this can also be achieved by a new, sportier front spoiler, whose built-in ellipsoid fog lights give the 'face' of the BMW more character. The sides of the M5 are edged with subtle side sills, which make the saloon appear even more powerful. At the rear Hamann have a rear panel with cut-out for the Hamann 4-pipe-rear silencer teem with sportiness. The roof is crowned by a roof spoiler, which also helps to ensure that the M5 remains firmly on the road at high speeds.

Further downforce is generated by the rear spoiler that is harmoniously integrated into the vehicle contours. More dynamic than the standard-fitted mirrors are the sports mirrors offered by Hamann for all left-hand drive cars, which are electrically adjustable and heated, and optionally also electrically folding. All parts, except the front apron, Hamann offers also in carbon-kevlar.

Four stainless steel tailpipes, each with a 76 mm diameter, are a sign of the Hamann 4-pipe sports rear silencer. Its sound, which is enough to give goosebumps, emphasizes the sheer power of this saloon.

A suspension lowering kit with progressive-action suspension springs is used for lowering the body. This brings the Hamann-M5 30 mm closer to the tarmac at the front and 25 mm lower at the rear. The Hamann engineers have certainly done their homework and have given the BMW a sports braking system on the front axle. It is composed of 2 slotted and inside-vented brake discs, 380 mm in diameter and 34 mm thick, 2 Hamann eight-piston fixed calliper brakes in red (other colours are of course available on request), special brake pads, flexible steel brake pipes and adaptors.

Customers are spoilt for choice when it comes to the Hamann range of wheels. The tuning specialists from Laupheim offer no fewer than five wheel types in 19 to 21 inch versions. The range is crowned by the Hamann 21 inch light alloy wheel design ''EDITION RACE'', for the front axle in the dimension 9.0 J x 21 available with size 255/30-21 tyres, for the rear axle in 10.5 J x 21 with size 295/25-21 tyres. Needless to say, Hamann also offers sets of shims and anti-theft systems with lockable wheel bolts for the rims.

Gorgeous. I've seen two stock M5's in two days, and it saddens me that I do not have one.

I like the maroon one. The blue isn't my style but I'd still drive it.

Anyone read the new Motor Trend yet? M5 vs. CLS55 AMG

Easy killer. It's a little over the top. I mean it IS an M5, but that said, there is real performance gain as well.

I like the wheels, and exaust, but it is hideously overdone besides those two mentioned things.
