More Power and DTM-Style Body Kit for Hamann's BMW M5

Hamann Motorsport has big ambitions for the new BMW M5. The German tuner has developed bold new aerodynamic pieces as well as interior upgrades for the Bavarian sport sedan, and power enhancements are on their way.

Hamann has developed a new DTM-style wide-body kit to enhance the sports sedan's aerodynamics -- and, some might argue, its curb appeal. Widened fenders make room for the massive 21x9.5-inch front and 21x12-inch rear wheels. A new front apron (with integrated LED running lights), side skirts, and rear apron redirect airflow around the car. The roof- and truck-mounted spoilers combine for increased down force, Hamann claims. Carbon-fiber exterior trim is also available.

The tuner offers a set of ultra-light Unique Forged II alloy wheels as well as three-piece forged alloys with an anthracite-anodized center mounted to the mirror-finished rim by titanium mounting bolts. Continental Sport Contact 5P tires sized 265/30 ZR 21 front and 325/25 ZR 21 rear wrap the custom wheels. Sport springs lower the M5 1.2 inches.

Inside, Hamann replaces the stock leather with higher-quality hides. Aluminum pedals are part of the Hamann M5 package, while buyers can specify piano black, leather, or Alcantara trim.

Hamann is developing exhaust and engine management upgrades for the BMW M5’s twin-turbo 4.4-liter V-8 that's already good for 560 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque. The tuner expects power increases of 158 hp and 162 lb-ft torque for a total of 718 hp and 662 lb-ft of torque to abuse the wider tires.
