BMW M6: Wide Thing

17 Nov 2006

Modified M6 has extra 60bhp and no limiter

Hamann’s latest offering is an uprated M6 with a stance-broadening ‘Edition Race’ bodykit and an extra 60bhp from the 5-litre V10 (now up to 561bhp) courtesy of a remap for the management system and a completely new exhaust system. Hamann also removes the speed limiter so that the tuned coupe now peaks at 199mph.

Suspension revisions drop the front end by 30mm and the rear by 25mm, but of more interest is the brake upgrade that encompasses discs, callipers, pads and hoses. Alloy wheel options range from 19 to 21in.

Hamann has also set to work on the Z4 M Coupe, with a modest 15bhp power increase, a bodykit and the company’s own alloys.
