Hamann’s trusty dealer and builder in Switzerland, DS Automobile, has just finished a new Hamann BMW X5M. Boasting a full upgrade package, this X5M is one of the most potent of its kind in the world and also, we suspect, one of the classiest.
DS’s Hamann BMW X5M is cool and classy precisely because it looks pretty much stock on the outside. In fact, just about the only visual change one would notice is a set of Anniversary Evo wheels in brushed silver which make a nice contrast with the rich metallic black paint job. The flared arches and sports bumpers are kind of obscured by the color, and that’s a good thing.
The best of part of this car is not the looks, but what lies under the bonnet. Using upgrade parts and Technical know-how from their German patrol, DS of Switzerland has upgraded the 4.4 liter bi turbo V8 engine in this Hamann BMW X5M from around 560 to a full 650 horsepower. This means this massive SUV is now capable of embarrassing the most serious sports cars in a drag race, but we have to admit it is pretty much pointless anywhere else.
