The doctors over at German tuning group Hamann couldn’t wait any longer to get their hands on the newly designed 2012 BMW 650i convertible. The recently introduced drop-top gets special treatment, and receives slight touch-ups that give it a sportier look.
Starting with the wheels, Hamann lets you dress them up with two different available designs. The “Anodized” race edition design includes 21-inch alloy wheels, complete with a high-gloss and chrome-plated rim flange with offset black spokes and titanium screws. These also come in 20-inch matte black wheels. For a more subtle look, go with the “Anniversay Evo” design, which includes wheels in silver or matte black in 20-inch or 21-inch size. Staying in tune with the sporty look, aluminum pedals and a footrest replace the black rubber factory ones, giving the interior a more high-performance look and offering better grip for those that like to get a feel for its 0 to 60 time of 4.9 seconds, 400 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque. The aluminum pedals are available in silver or anodized black.
The drop-top drops down low, as Hamann specialists used progressive suspension springs to lower the center of gravity in the front by around 30mm, and in the rear by about 25mm. Staying on topic with the rear, a stainless steel four-pipe exhaust with round 90mm tailpipes peek out the back, and a middle silencer gives the 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 a nice rumble.
More about the tuning package for the 6-series will be revealed at the Frankfurt Show in September.
