Hamann Motorsport transforms the BMW M6 into a racing machine. The front
spoiler with the elegant dual wind splitter, and the well thought-through design
are guarantee for the optimum output at any speed. The new bonnet - which is
entirely made of visible carbon fiber - leaves no doubt about the Hamann
motorsport genes. It unites premium material strength with a total weight of
merely 22 lbs (9.5 kilograms).
The wings place special emphasis on the looks of the Hamann M6 Mirr6r. Compared to the production car, they have grown by 1.6 inch (40 mm) in width and provide a much wider stance to the coupé. The lines are seamless and flow from here across the side skirts with its air intakes to the rear spoiler, including the integrated carbon Venturi diffuser. Together with the carbon rear spoiler, the diffuser ensures optimal output power.
And what's more, the diffuser incorporates two stainless steel tailpipes on the left- and right-hand side of the Hamann sports exhaust system. Even while the throttle is closed, this system produces a pleasant sporty sound and flow data. But you open the throttle with a push of a button, and the system opens up a completely new world - a brute sound as well as beastly power.
The engineers in Laupheim are still tweaking with the engine's performance and it probably won't be long until they come up with something special. For now, the Hamann M6 Mirr6r features the standard 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 with 560 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque.
In addition to the aerodynamic design, the sport springs can bring the suspension up to 1.5 inch (35 mm) closer to the tarmac, and the ultra-light forged rims "Edition Race" or "Unique Forged Formula", ensure optimum road holding.
The tire selection was based on the cooperation between Hamann and the tire specialist Vredestein. The challenge was to find the perfect tire that always acts the same, even at 180 mph (300 km/h) and more. The specifications included top-notch data for grip, steering precision, and cornering ability. The Vredestein Ultrac Vorti R meets all those requirements. That's why the front 265/30 ZR21 and rear 305/25 ZR21 tires carry the Hamann logo on their walls.
When it comes to creating contact with the driver, Hamann refined the cockpit with numerous leather Alcantara applications. Furthermore, the pedals and the foot rest - all made of aluminum - provide the sporty accent. Upon request, the designer from Laupheim adds illuminated trims in chrome and many other materials.
There is a reason why the word "Motorsport" is part of the Hamann name. Its career started 27 years ago on the race track. The commitment to top performance, even under extreme conditions, has always been in the company's maxim, and this is exactly what the company proves with the "Mirr6r" M6.
