Hamann tuning program for the BMW 5 Series Exposed

Can’t wait for the M5? Hamann has the 5 Series for you.

The latest tuning range for the new BMW F10 5 Series from Hamann bridges the gap between the M5 and the 550i with downforce-inducing aerodynamics, a sporty interior, and striking new wheel options. Although the tuning program doesn’t push the 4.4-liter V-8 of the 550i to make M5-like power, the styling package makes it look more unmistakable.

To bring out the sporty character found in all BMWs, Hamann has created an athletic and functional aerodynamic exterior kit. From the front, the 5 Series is more distinct with an adjustable front spoiler and bumper covers with built-in LED daytime running lights. For reduced drag, Hamann has installed subtle side skirts that flow to the rear. To create even more downforce the tuning program features not one, but two spoilers on the rear trunklid and roof. Also at the rear, Hamann has fitted a new rear bumper panel that allows for the new exhaust to be fitted and create a clean look.

Tying all of the exterior revisions together are three different sets of wheels along with a lowering module for spirited driving. Coming in measuring 8.5 J x 20 up front and 10.0 J x 20 at the rear are Hamann’s Light Alloy HM Evo wheels, featuring a five triple-spoke design and one-piece construction. For a more distinct look, customers can opt for the three-piece forged Edition Race “Matte Black” wheels that showcase a cross-spoke design in black with a polished flange a titanium screws. The featured wheels for the 5 Series are the Edition Race “Anodized” 21-inch split-rim forged wheels. Measuring 9.0 J x 21 at the front and 11.0 J x 21 at the rear, the lightweight wheels feature a black face with a polished flange and titanium screws. To complete the look, Hamann has fitted progressive suspension springs that lower the ride height by 35 mm.

For the 4.4-liter, twin-turbocharged, 400 horsepower V-8 found in the 550i, Hamann offers two exhaust options to create an unforgettable sound. For a true V-8 roar, customers can opt for the Sport rear muffler with four 90 mm-round exhaust pipes that fits directly into the new rear bumper panel. Customers can also order the sport high-performance catalytic converters and center muffler to free up a few horses and create an even louder bark.

Matching the athletic exterior and growling V-8 is an equally sporty interior. Hamann has fitted the dashboard, center console, door handle panels, and steering wheel with a titanium gray carbon fiber that underscores the sport in the 5 Series without being too gaudy. In addition Hamann also lets your feet ride in comfort with new Hamann BMW F10 floor mats and aluminum pedals for the driver.
