This is Hamann’s finest creation for this year’s Geneva Motor Show based on Mercedes SLS AMG. They call it the Hawk and it’s the kind of car the Arabs would kill for with its Everose Gold paint job!
The modified body of the SLS Hawk features a full body it consisting of a new front apron with a spoiler lip, a new carbon fiber bonnet that’s complemented by a carbon air scoop on the roof, a carbon trunk lid, and an absolutely massive rear spoiler.Not to mention there’s a new diffuser at the back as well.
The new fender extensions and side skirts also play a major role in giving the car a more in-your-face presence!
As always you get a decent set of wheels, this time single-part, especially light forged wheels “Unique Forged Anodized” in 21 inches. These are fitted in 9Jx21 with tyres measuring 245/30 ZR 21 at the front and 12.5Jx21 with tyres measuring 345/25 ZR 21 at the rear axle. They have Hamann’s lowered springs – 30mm – above them.
Then there’s the engine. Hamann has managed to another 70 or so horsepower in that magnificent 6.3 liter AMG V8 engine of the Merc. It now has 636 hp / 468 kW and a maximum torque of 680 Nm at 4,850 r.p.m. That means 0 to 100 km/h in done in just 3.6 seconds an the top speed is around 320 km/h.
Last but not least, Hamann offers a VIP treatment for the interior of the SLS with leather and ultra-suede, applications and embroideries replace the serial interior. HAMANN additionally adorns the air inlets, door sill protectors and centre console with checkered flag carbon. Black anodized aluminium pedals render a comfortable grip.
