Porsche Panamera Cyrano by Hamann

German aftermarket specialists from Hamann have developed a new version for the Porsche Panamera and they called it the Hamann Cyrano. The turbo model is capable of developing 603 horsepower and 870 Nm of torque. This output enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds and to 200 km/h in 12.6 seconds. When the car is equipped with the Sport Chrono Package, the performance increases and so, the model will be capable of reaching 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds and 200 km/h in 12.4 seconds. Also the top speed increases from 303 km/h to 315 km/h.

The German engineers will prepare a more powerful upgrade package for the turbo version of the Panamera. They ask us to expect a rear sports muffler, but also a new engine management system which will increase performance by 80 horsepower and 120 Nm of torque. The body work will include larger air intakes that will include daytime running lights, redesigned bonnet, side skirts, diffuser rear apron and 60 mm wider front and rear fenders. The power is being transferred to the road through 22-inch gunmetal wheels that measure 9.5Jx22 covered in 265/30 ZR 22 tires on the front axle and 11Jx22 with 305/25 ZR 22 tires on the rear one.

The tuner lowered the suspension by 30 mm. Hamann Motorsport named its bodywork program Cyrano in honor of the French fictional character with a long nose. The larger air intakes offer Porsche an even more dynamic look. In order to reduce the up-lift forces at the rear axle the aftermarket engineers developed a special diffuser rear apron for the sedan. This encases the striking dual tailpipes of the sports exhaust system and makes the rear of this car a rear eye catcher. The interior of the Porsche Panamera was completely redesigned.
