And this is just the beginning.
The new BMW F12 6 Series is a break from the Bangle design of the previous generation that was controversial but popular. While many design elements have been carried over, it is now a sleeker, more “mainstream” car. For those seeking individuality, Hamann Motorsport has designed a new program that adds a few subtle styling elements that drastically change the look of the BMW 6 Series Cabrio.
The Hamann BMW specialists have managed to transform the overall appearance and character of the 6 Series without adding any additional bodywork. Hamann offers three different wheel options for the cabriolet ranging in sizes from 20 to 21 inches. The featured wheel is the Design Edition Race “Anodized” with a high-gloss chrome plated rim flange, black spokes, and contrasting titanium screws. Also displayed on the Hamann BMW F12 are Design “Anniversary EVO” wheels, which can be ordered in silver or black with a 21- or 20-inch diameter. In addition to the two featured wheels, customers also have the option of ordering 20-inch Design Edition Race matte black wheels. All three sets can be ordered individually or as a set and are compatible with the stock BMW tire pressure monitoring system. But the transformation isn’t complete until the Hamann progressively wound suspension springs are added. The springs lower the center of gravity by 30 mm up front and 25 mm at the rear, and help to remove any wheel gap.
The exterior design oh the Hamann BMW F12 is also given an aggressive look and sound with the new exhaust system for the 650i. The twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V-8 gains a full stainless steel four-pipe exhaust system with a middle muffler and large quad tips. Hamann hasn’t released the official power figures with the new exhaust system, but expect it to be slightly up from the stock 400 horsepower and 450 lb-ft. of torque.
Inside the changes are also subtle. Hamann offers an aluminum pedal and footrest set in either silver or anodized black for customers. The floor is further upgraded with a set of black floor mats with stitched silver Hamann logos.
The Hamann BMW F12 6 Series Cabriolet is currently available from the German tuner. Pricing has not been released. Hamann Motorsport will be unveiling a full body kit at the Frankfurt Auto Show in September.
