Hamann TYCOON EVO M based on BMW X6 M - 22.02.2010

The Hamann Tycoon Evo M which is based on the BMW X6 M is headed for the 2010 Geneva Motor Show and will be exhibited on the tuner's 200 square metre stand. Plus it's packing a pretty mean punch. Hamann liked what they saw in the X6 M but decided more muscle would be even better.

Modifications have resulted in a hike to 493kW (670 PS / 661 hp) at 6,000rpm and peak torque of 780Nm (575 lb-ft) torque between 1,500 and 5,650rpm. The 0 - 100km/h time is dispatched in a matter of 4.2 seconds while top speed exceeds the official 250km/h (155 mph) by an extra 50km/h (31 mph).

Based on the X6 Tycoon Evo kit we've seen before, Hamann made a few cosmetic/ performance changes including the installation of enlarged air inlets in the front, a carbon bonnet, a stainless steel high performance exhaust system and two centrally mounted tailpipes.

HAMANN-Motorsport presents the TYCOON EVO M based on the new BMW X6 M

HAMANN-Motorsport, the renowned specialist for exquisite refinements of BMW-automobiles shows its latest developments on the 80th Geneva Motor Show. The masculine show-piece on the HAMANN exhibition stand with 200 square metres is the world premiere of the 670 hp/493kW strong and 300 km/h fast TYCOON EVO M based on the BMW X6 M.

The TYCOON EVO M - powerful appearance with striking design

Already the shape of the TYCOON EVO M with its impressive broad built gives a good hint of what is to be discovered. Mainly responsible for that are the front and the rear wing extensions made of light composite materials. These let the body expand by impressive 60 millimetres. Additionally, the HAMANN designers enhanced the sides with the newly designed side skirts. The distinctive hallmark of the front is the apron with the four striking LED daytime running lights. But the body set does not only emphasise the appearance, enlarged air inlets in the front and the carbon bonnet allow an optimised air ventilation of the engine compartment. At the X6 M rear, HAMANN also replaces the original skirt with an own development. This makes room for the earthy sounding sports exhaust system with the centrally positioned double end pipes. The rear view of the TYCOON EVO M is perfected with beautifully designed rear- and roof spoilers. All of those components produce a low-swirling airflow over the vehicle silhouette and render additional downthrust.

Rich performance enhancement thanks to optimised exhaust gas flow

In addition to the spectacular shape of the TYCOON EVO M the HAMANN engine department added a powerful performance enhancement for the serial engine. The most significant component for the performance enhancement and responsible for the dynamic and earthy sound of the TYCOON EVO M is the stainless steel high performance exhaust system with metal catalysers. A newly programmed map for the serial motronic completes the upgrade and suspending the speed limit of 250 km/h allows unrestrained driving pleasures.

As a result of the modifications, the X6 M now offers 670 hp / 493 kW at 6,000 r.p.m. and 780 Nm torque at 1,500 - 5,650 r.p.m. This is a surplus of 115 hp and 100 Nm compared to the serial version. Therefore, the all-wheel accelerated from 0 to 100 in only 4,2 seconds and reaches a maximum speed of 300 km/h.

Varying rim designs and sizes

Specially adjusted to the increased requirements of the TYCOON EVO M, the refining specialist presents varying wheel designs and sizes. A highlight concerning styling and technology is the rim model UNIQUE FORGED ANODIZED produced in most modern forged technology. The dynamic shape of the delicate, anodised cross spokes does not only lead to a dynamic and striking look, but also results in an even weight distribution and therefore guarantees higher bearing loads. HAMANN offers the 23-inch wheel in the dimensions 11.0 x 23 at the front- and 12.0 x 23 at the rear axle, combined with wheels measuring 315/25 R 23.

The light alloy wheels are especially emphasised with the HAMANN lowering kit. Progressively coiled springs at the front axle and a modification kit for the rear axle thereby lower the centre of gravity of the Sports Utility Vehicle by approx. 40 millimetres.

Most noble interior applications underline the motor sports atmosphere

In addition to the existing factory-provided interior, HAMANN offers accessories made of black-anodised aluminium in combination with carbon applications. Pedals and foot rest render motor sports air and perfectly match the 12-part HAMANN decoration set made of carbon fibre. An three-spoke sports steering wheel additionally render the TYCOON EVO M a dynamic overall appearance. For the luggage compartment in the back of the X6 M, HAMANN offers an elegant and practical boot mat with diamond-shaped decorations and an embroidered logo.

they don't get the concept of a niche product. if everyone likes it, than it's not a niche. a niche product is supposed to appeal to a small but very specific demographic.

Good try. the X6M used to be a mongrel of a performance SUV which has no off road capability. Now Hamann turns it into a Godzilla. No improvement in its purpose tho.

let's be realistic, how many luxury SUVs do you see going through swamps and climbing mountains ? if someone really wants to do that, they will buy a Land Rover Defender, not a X6. BMW never pretended they make offroaders, that's why they cal their 4x4 cars SAVs , they leave the U(tility) out.

Lol you so dumb lucionatic. X6 has never been advertised as a professional offroad vehicle. And as the other said, who the hell is going to buy an $80k vehicle to offroad? Use yo head fool.
