Hamann BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe upgrade kit now available

February 1, 2013

If you like your coupes grand, you certainly won’t miss the new upgrade kit by Hamann developed for the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe. It provides even more presence for the already jaw-dropping 6 Series.

The BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe can be had in two variants in Australia, the 640i and 650i. A high performance M version is on the way too, which will borrow the mechanical underpinnings from the epic BMW M6 and M5.

Power for the 640i version comes from a 3.0-litre turbo inline six with 235kW/450Nm, while the 650i comes with a 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 producing 330kW/650Nm.

For German tuning company Hamann, all that is needed to boost the Gran Coupe’s appeal is a sleek yet super-aggressive bodykit. So the company has come up with this rather svelte and stealth bronze number you see here.

It features a carbon fibre bonnet with custom vents cut sidewards above the engine, a new front bumper bar and extended lower lip and side fins, matching side skirts, and an impressively finished rear end with a lip spoiler and diffuser at the bottom. The kit has been tested and does provide aerodynamic advantages over the standard Gran Coupe body.

With a set of dark-finish Hamann alloy wheels, the 6 Series is turned into an autobahn weapon.

To finish it all off, Hamann can fit a full interior customisation package, with unique leather colour schemes pampering passengers even more so than the already top-line 6er. Bespoke pedals, seats, and steering wheel are also on offer.
