Supercars have dominated headlines at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, but German tuner Hamann is attempting to steal some of the spotlight with a few distinctive vehicles including an eye-searing custom Range Rover called “Mystere.”
There’s nothing subtle about the Mystere, which the tuner says “exhibits nothing more but self-confidence.” And apparently the tuner is confident it will find customers who will be attracted to a large SUV with a pink paint job and a mirror-like finish on most of its sheetmetal (the roof and side-view mirror caps have a matte finish). The show car is riding on “Edition Race” 23-inch forged three-piece rims, though a single-piece rim is also available.
Hamann has also tweaked the Rover’s suspension system, lowering the stock ride height by about 1.6 inches. The Mystere also features a custom exhaust system and the tuner says it plans to tweak the Range Rover’s 5.0-liter supercharged V-8, which puts out 510 hp and 461 lb-ft of torque in stock form.
In addition to the Range Rover Mystere, Hamann is displaying a custom “Mirr6r” BMW 6 Series, also sporting a mirror-like finish, though in a tamer dark gray color. Joining the 6 Series is an F10 M5 (renamed as Mi5Sion) with a white paint job and partially covered-up headlights. The tuner has fitted both BMWs with body kits, new rims, sport exhaust, and a lowered suspension system.
Finally, a Hamann-tuned Mercedes-Benz G65 AMG “Spyridon” is finished in a special paint the tuner claims will glow with a small application of voltage. Hamann also tweaked the G65’s twin-turbo V-12 with a new ECU and exhaust system, boosting output to 693 hp and 819 lb-ft of torque, up from 603 hp and 737 lb-ft. The powertrain mods are also available for the G63 AMG, which increases the twin-turbo 5.5-liter V-8’s power from 536 hp and 516 lb-ft to 632 hp and 645 lb-ft. Visual modifications include 24-inch rims, carbon-fiber mirror housings and hood, and triple exhaust tips.
