The reputable German BMW tuners, Hamann Motorsport, have taken the BMW’s idea and developed it consistently to produce the Hamann 645Ci HM 5.2 6 Coupe. The outcome: a sporty model, great design, and pure driving comfort.
Hamann has constructed a fully-fledged aerodynamics package for the new BMW 6 Coupe, which clearly enhances the dynamic silhouette of the serial model. The distinctive front spoiler not only gives it an unmistakable look, it literally sucks the Hamann 645Ci HM 5.2 down onto the road. Wide side sillboards highlight the sporting look of the 6 Coupe and hint at the performance of the Hamann model. The powerful rear view, in particular, with the newly designed rear apron trim including diffuser and a perfectly integrated, specially developed exhaust system, set new standards. The rear and roof spoilers are not merely visual highlights, they also serve to ensure sufficient output on the rear axle of the Hamann 645Ci HM 5.2.
Concealed under the Hamann aerodynamic components is a pedigree sports car. The 412 bhp of the Hamann 645Ci HM 5.2 provides high output at 6,100 revs per minute and a maximum speed torque of 406 lb-ft at 3,900 revs per minute. At an impressive 180 mph, top speed is significantly higher than the 155 mph of the standard version. This great performance is achieved by means of specially constructed motor parts such as sport pistons, cylinder gasket, crankshaft and sport air filters and by changing the map of the serial Motronics. A conspicuous detail in the engine compartment is the oil-fill cap with the Hamann logo.
In addition to this, the specially developed four-pipe sport exhaust system with 2 x 2 sport silencers and 3 inch diameter exhaust pipe ends contribute to the performance of the Hamann 6. It also provides an optical highlight and gives the Laupheim model a deep, throaty sound.
In keeping with the extremely sporting concept of the Hamann 645Ci HM 5.2, the brakes and chassis have been adapted to its performance. On the front axle the Hamann sports braking system with 365 mm slotted and self-ventilated brake discs decelerates with top precision. In terms of appearance, the eight-piston fixed caliper in red make for a genuine motor sport feeling and they really do a powerful job. And the sports brake pads, steel braided brake lines, and adapters ensure the necessary braking power.
