Hamann Mercedes SLS AMG Hawk


Updated on

Another car released at the Geneva Motor Show is the Mercedes SLS AMG from the Hamann tuning company. Called the Hawk, the gullwing door sports car features an Everose Gold exterior with a wind tunnel tested aerodynamic kit. Looks more pink than gold to me, however the package consists of a new front bumper fascia with LED daytime running lights and larger air inlets. A new carbon fiber hood lets hot air escape the engine bay, while the side skirts, rear bumper fascia, carbon fiber wing, and diffuser add styling points.

From the factory, the new Mercedes sports car carries a powerful 6.2-liter V8 engine. It has been improved by the guys at Hamann with new high peformance titanium exhaust manifolds, sport catalysts, and a new sports air filter for the intake. These mods along with an ECU remapping produces 636 Ps for the SLS AMG. At the track, it was very impressive with an acceleration time of 3.6 seconds, and a top speed of 320 km/h.

For the suspension, a coilover kit consisting of four height adjustable dampers, and progressively wound springs drop the vehicle up to 30 mm. Hamann then installed their very own lightweight forged wheels measuring 21×9, and wrapped them in high performance tires. Check it out!
