New BMW X5 by Hamann:
Sharper looks with more power and agility

New BMW X5: hardly any area left untouched by Hamann.

APN, PR,
18 June 2007.

As one of the most successful models in the crossover category, the BMW X5 barely got it new generation launched that Hamann has already put together a complete program for the U.S. made SUV, or SAV as the Bavarian brand put it.

Hardly any area has been left untouched. Whether its suspension, wheels, performance, interior or aerodynamics, the German tuner got his own X5 point of view.

Further sporty accent with the Hamann roof spoiler.

Hamann begins from the aerodynamic components, with a new front spoiler that lends the X5 a significant powerful feature.  Its mounted on the series-produced front apron.

At the back, Hamann adds a rear apron seizing the design of the front spoiler to match. This component is also affixed to the series-produced parts. A further sporty accent shines through with the Hamann roof spoiler, providing a stabilizing effect.

Lower suspension settings for a lower center of gravity.

With such a large vehicle, every bit of power counts. For this reason, Hamann reprogrammed the series-produced Motronic.

The X5 3.0si petrol engine received subsequently a power / torque boost of about 14 PS/10kW and 25 Nm respectively, added to the basic power of 272 PS and 315 Nm of torque.

The X5 3.0d diesel (with its basic 235 PS/173 kW) is raised by the tuners to 265 PS/ 195 kW and 600 Nm, while the V8-cylinder petrol model 4.8i jumps by 18 PS/ 13 kW  for more power (from the basic 355 PS).

Wheel choices offer four designs including PG3, Anniversary I and II as well as Edition Race.

The Hamann multi-pieced wheel PG3 is available in silver finish with high-polished flange. Its characterized through the sporty five-spoke design.

The one-pieced wheel Anniversary I portrays a light footing with its multi-spoke design, supplied in silver finish with INOX stainless steel lip flange.

The multi-pieced light alloy wheel Anniversary II exhibits a multi-spoke design of pure motor sports character.

New spoiler mounted on the series-produced front apron, like the rear apron is also affixed to the series-produced parts.

The appearance of the three-piece, ultra light forged wheels Edition Race in crossing spoke design and black wheel spider is identified through its nine main spokes double-attached, branching and continually double-crossing towards the outside rim. Its' stirring design becomes particularly noticeable through Titan studs. The high-polished flange completes the luxurious look.

PG3 and Anniversary I are available for the X5 in 20- and 22-inch, Anniversary II in 22-inch and the wheel Edition Race comes in an impressive 23-inch.

Hamann offers the wheels in form of complete sets.

Typical wheel / tire combinations:

Edition Race: FR /RR 10,5 Jx23 with315/25R23 102Y XL
PG3: FR /RR 10,5 J x 22 with 295/30 ZR 22
PG3: FR /RR   9,5 J x 20 with 295/40 ZR 20
Anniversary II: FR /RR 10,5 J x 22 with 295/30 ZR 22
Anniversary I: FR /RRA 10,5 J x 22 with 295/30 ZR 22
Anniversary I: FR /RR 10,5 J x 20 with 295/40 ZR 20
Anniversary I: FR/RR 10,5 Jx20 with FR 275/40 ZR 20 / RR  315/35 ZR 20

For an even better stability with less body roll and more agility, Hamann reduces the center of gravity for the X5 with a set of progressive suspension springs. For vehicles equipped with level regulation, the suspension is lowered to about 40 mm in front, and for others without level regulation or air suspension, to about 40 mm in front and about 30 mm in back.

Hamann also modified the already elegant and comfortable  interior, adding accessories such as an exclusive foot mat flooring in black, a foot pedal of aluminium or even an aluminium foot rest. Other X5 modifications can be ordered, like an extravagant leather decor in a variety of colours, or an elaborate multimedia set-up including DVD, TV and Play station.
