With its customization program for the latest generation of the BMW M5, the
German tuner Hamann is presenting a fresh interpretation of a fast Bavarian
saloon. More dynamic, more luxurious, and even more exclusive than its
predecessors - a car to meet the highest demands of driving pleasure and active
The design elements transform the M5 into an even more impressive sports car, shifting the focus to the wide body. Wing extensions on the front of 1 inch (25 mm) on each side and on the rear of 1.3 inch (30 mm) on each side turn the 5-series into the kind of car only seen in the DTM or other touring-car championships.
The front apron with integrated LED daytime driving lights, in cooperation with the rear apron, reduces upthrust in the Hamann M5, providing a decisive boost to handling and agility. This is supported by the side sill set which significantly steadies the airflow between the two axles. The roof spoiler and rear spoiler additionally provide the necessary contact pressure on the asphalt.
In keeping with the M5 Widebody's powerful appearance, Hamann uses ultra-light Unique Forged II forged wheels. The recommended wheel-tire combination at the front is 9.5Jx21-inch with Continental Sport Contact 5P tires in the size 265/30 ZR21. At the rear, 12.0Jx21-inch rims are used with 325/25 ZR21 tires.
Another highlight of the range is the three-part Hamann aluminum wheel named Edition Race "Anodized". The anthracite-anodized wheel star and the titanium bolting of the mirror-finished rim flange emphasize the car's racing character. Manufacturing with forging technology makes the wheel especially light, and the reduced unsprung masses improve both acceleration and brake response.
The new aluminum wheels are accentuated by the special chassis springs, which lower the BMW's center of gravity by up to 1.3 inch (30 millimeters). At the same time, the sports car's handling enjoys a significant upgrade.
Hamann is also developing an engine upgrade which will result in a power boost to approx. 720 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque.
Hamann has also redesigned the interior, converting the inside of this four-door sports saloon into a VIP lounge with motorsports flair. The finest leather replaces the factory-standard version. The Hamann aluminum pedals gleam from the footwell and perfectly complement the metal appliqués of the series interior.
Piano lacquer, leather or Alcantara finishes - all are available on request to add extra thrill to the ride. From the personalized floor-mat set to the full-leather upholstery, everything is produced by hand to precision standard, and individually designed and integrated into the vehicle by master craftsmen.
