Hamman Tycoon II M based on BMW X6

The competition between the car manufacturers unleashes a parallel contest, this time between the tuning companies. Each of them give their best to be as creative as possible, to add as many innovative elements as they can and to give the car they work on another personality. One of these firms is Hamann. The German tuning company, headquartered in Laupheim, was founded in 1986 especially to work on German cars. Since then, however, its activity has been extended on other vehicles such as Lamborghini, Porsche, Aston Martin or Ferrari.  Since BMW is still in their heart, they have just released a new tuning program for the facelift BMW X6 M.

The tuning package for the BMW X6 M is code named the Tycoon II M. This means that the perspective on the car changes once with the appearance of some new elements. The vehicle has been fitted with an aggressive body kit that has the following things: new bumpers, revised side skirts and extended wheel arches. The X6 has also lost some weight as it possesses a carbon fiber hood. The crossover has been equipped with some LED daytime running lights, two rear spoilers and 22 or 23 inch alloy wheels. And all these can be easily noticed when looking at the pictures.

The interior owns a sporting steering wheel, a carbon fiber trim and illuminated sill plates. The speedometer has been changed into a 320 km/h (199 mph) one, and the pedals are now made of aluminum. Hamman placed a sports exhaust system on the BMW X6 M, as well as an optimized ECU. These two elements trigger modifications in the engine’s configuration. The twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 engine can now produce 670 HP (493 kW) and 950 Nm (701 lb-ft) of torque and the amazing car can reach a top speed of 300 km/h (186 mph). The existing BMW genes mated with the typical Hamman DNA make a perfect match, and that’s how we got ourselves looking at a perfect car.
