Room for five, a hatch full of luggage, and corner-carving fun.
The BMW 5 Series Touring strikes a balance between utility, sport, and luxury by offering BMW driving dynamics, a large trunk space, and room for five. The BMW F11 is one of the latest models in the new 5 Series Range, and the German tuners at Hamann have decided to take a swing at making the five-person wagon even more exciting.
The first step for the Hamann BMW F11 was to create a more athletic appearance for the different variants of the 5 Series Touring. Up front, Hamann installed a new spoiler lip for to normal Touring models, as well as a separate unit for models equipped with the M-Technology package. The front fascia is transformed with a redesigned skirt that features larger air inlets and four integrated LED daytime running lights. New side skirts were also added to form a seamless design towards the updated rear. The back of the Hamann BMW F11 wears new downforce-developing bodywork to help keep that fat rear planted at higher speeds. The new skirt incorporates all four tailpipes along with a diffuser. Aerodynamics are further optimized with the use of roof and rear spoilers.
Complementing the new, more aggressive bodywork, are three striking sets of wheels and a lowered suspension. Hamann offers their classic one-piece Anniversary EVO wheels in either silver or matte black, or their forged multi-piece Edition Race Anodized wheels with a black face, polished flange, and titanium screws. All three kinds of wheels are available in 9.0J x 21 at the front axle and 11.0J x 21 at the rear, and fitted with 255/30 ZR 21 and 295/25 ZR 21 tires. To complete the look and improve handling, Hamann has equipped the BMW F11 with progressively-wound suspension springs that reduce the ride height by 35 mm.
Inside, the Hamann BMW F11 can be revamped with a bit of carbon fiber for a sportier atmosphere. A ten-piece trim set in carbon fiber, matte titanium grey, or a number of other colors can be installed to replace the stock material. To achieve a more driver-oriented feel, Hamann offers a sports steering wheel with airbag, and a set of anodized aluminum pedals. New velour floor mats are also available along with the optional embossed headrests.
The F11 BMW 5 Series Touring is more of an appearance package from Hamann. The only performance upgrades currently available from the German tuner are the quad tailpipes and sport rear muffler. For customers with the 550i, Hamann offers an exclusive sport catalytic converter with middle muffler to boost output by a few horses.
The Hamann BMW F11 5 Series Touring package is currently available from the German tuner as an entire package or individual accessories. The only pricing that has been released is the Anodized Race Edition wheel and tire set for € 8,390 (+/- 11,800 USD).
