BMW X6 (2008 - 2014)

Hamann Motorsport creates BMW X6 Tycoon

15 January 2009 | German tuner Hamann calls its latest creation the BMW X6 Tycoon. This description has its roots in Japanese culture and is originally a synonym for an extraordinary shape: a comparison which can also be transferred to the X6-makeover.

The appearance of the Tycoon is mainly emphasised by its new front wings and back wing extensions made of light composite material. The Tycoon is 60 mm wider than the original X6. The side skirts render the optical connection while the front apron is an eye-catcher with its large air inlets and the LED daytime running lights under the serial headlights. At the rear section of the X6, the Hamann-engineers added a three-part diffuser to the original apron. The back appearance of the Tycoon is altered by a rear- and roof spoiler.

The rim of choice for the makeover of the BMW X6 is the Design Edition Race Anodised. Hamann offers the 23-inch wheel with tyres sized 315/25 R 23. Special chassis springs enhance the light alloy wheels. Thereby, progressively coiled springs lower the barycentre of this Sports Utility Vehicle by maximally 40 millimetres at the front- and back axle.

The choice of different Hamann performance kits is as manifold as the selection of BMW engines. The tuning expert bestows the X6 xDrive35i with an engine output of 360 hp / 265 kW at 5230 rpm. At the same time the maximum torque rises by 140 Nm to 540 Nm in the rpm-range between 1300 and 5000. At the same time, Hamann also suspends the speed limit of 250 km/h and allows 275 km/h.

The diesel series also profits from extra power. After the standard motronic is re-programmed, the xDrive30d has 265 hp / 195 kW and transfers a maximum torque of 600 Nm to the crankshaft. The engine variation xDrive35d also turns into a sprinter: Hamann is able to tease 320 hp / 235 KW and a torque of 660 Nm at 2000 rpm out of the diesel car. Engine performance kits for the xDrive50i are already in the final stages of the development process.

In addition to the present, interior design, Hamann offers accessories made of aluminium. Pedals and foot rests render motorsports sensations and match the 12-part decoration set made of carbon fibre. An instrument dial with a scaling up to 300 km/h and a 3-spoke sport steering wheel further underline the sportive overall appearance of the Tycoon. For the boot of the X6, Hamann offers a boot mat with chequered decorative stitching and an embroidered logo.
