HAMANN Motorsport is most famous recently for such outrageous machines as the Mercedes-Benz SLR-based HAMANN Volcano, but its treatment for the more-mundane X6 turns a car that perhaps never should have been to a high performance, high-style machine they're caling the Tycoon.
The HAMANN BMW X6 Tycoon improves and builds upon the X6 platform in nearly every way. A couple of engine choices here, but true gear heads might want to take a look at HAMANN's treatment for the X6 Diesel. Using the xDrive35d engine as a base, HAMANN coaxes 315 horsepower and a mammoth 487 lb-ft. of torque at the crank. Granted, the X6 is a heavy car..crossover..whatever, but we're betting this thing moves.
HAMANN hints at an even more powerful X6 Tycoon using the xDrive50d as a jumping-off point. If plans work out as expected, we're talking big rig torque.
On the outside, the HAMANN X6 Tycoon gets a body widening by way of new front and rear air dams and skirts that complete the package by wrapping around and extending the wheel wells. The aero package is completed by rear and roof-deck spoilers. The Tycoon looks sufficiently menacing and important without going too far into the overstated realm.
Most instantly eye-catching are the 23 inch custom DESIGN EDITION RACE ANODIZED alloys wrapped by 315/25R23 tires front and rear. The X6 Tycoon will look most at home in the city, though should be able to handle itself just fine on the back roads.
The HAMANN BMW X6 Tycoon is available now, contact HAMANN for conversion price information, but the Tycoon won't come cheap.
HAMANN Motorsport Broadens the BMW X6
Official HAMANN Motorsport Press Release
As far as the latest project by HAMANN-Motorsport is concerned, the name says it all: the Laupheim-based refiner called its latest creation for BMW X6 TYCOON. This description has its roots in Japanese culture and is originally a synonym for an extraordinary shape – a comparison which can also be transferred to the X6-makeover.
The TYCOON – an auto-body pack which sets benchmarks
Already the design department at HAMANN-Motorsport ensures that the TYCOON meets the expectations in his name. They designed and developed an impressive broad makeover for this BMW crossover model and ensured that all accessories reflect and perfect the shape of the car. The masculine appearance of the TYCOON is mainly emphasised by its new front wings and back wing extensions made of light composite material. They broaden the body by striking 60 millimetres. The perfectly designed side skirts render the optical connection while the front apron is an outstanding eye-catcher with its large air inlets and the LED daytime running lights under the serial headlights. At the rear section of the X6, the HAMANN-engineers added a three-part diffuser to the original apron. The back appearance of the TYCOON is enhanced by a rear- and roof spoiler. It goes without saying that all used HAMANN-components do not only convince with their design but also with their aerodynamics. They ensure an optimised air flow over the car silhouette and render an additional downthrust.
Perfectly styled from head to toe – the suitable rim in XXL format
The suitable rim for the broad makeover of the BMW X6 is the DESIGN EDITION RACE ANODIZED. The ultra-light forged wheel combines both agility and also elegance. The black rim star and the titanium bolting underline the dynamics of the wheel. The highly polished rim flange on the contrary gives the car a noble impression. HAMANN offers the 23-inch wheel with tyres sized 315/25 R 23. Special chassis springs fantastically enhance the light alloy wheels. Thereby, progressively coiled springs lower the barycentre of this Sports Utility Vehicle by maximally 40 millimetres at the front- and back axle.
HAMANN performance kits – from tycoon to typhoon
The choice of different HAMANN performance kits is as manifold as the selection of BMW engines. The tuning expert bestows the X6 xDrive35i with an engine output of 360 hp / 265 kW at 5230 rpm. Parallelly, the maximum torque rises by 140 Nm to 540 Nm in the rpm-range between 1300 and 5000. At the same time, HAMANN also suspends the speed limit of 250 km/h and allows impressive 275 km/h.
The Diesel series also profits from extra power. After the serial motronic is re-programmed, the xDrive30d has 265 PS / 195 kW and transfers a maximum torque of 600 Nm to the crankshaft. The engine variation xDrive35d also turns into a racy sprinter: HAMANN is able to tease 320 PS / 235 KW and a sensational torque of 660 Nm at 2000 rpm out of the Diesel car. Engine performance kits for the xDrive50i are already in the final stages of the development process. Moreover, sport mufflers by HAMANN-Motorsport can be adjusted to any performance kit. The product range includes a two-pipe and also four-pipe exhaust system which render a sonorous and earthy sound.
The inner values of HAMANN – noble accessories for the TYCOON interior
In addition to the present, serial inner design, HAMANN offers accessories made of high-quality aluminium. Pedals and foot rests render motorsports sensations and perfectly match the 12-part HAMANN decoration set made of carbon fibre. An instrument dial with a scaling up to 300 km/h and a 3-spoke sport steering wheel further underline the sportive overall appearance of the TYCOON. For the boot of the X6, HAMANN offers an elegant and also practical boot mat with chequered decorative stitching and an embroidered logo.
