The Hamann Motorsports BMW 6 Series Cabriolet drops its top with 500+ HP

One sleek convertible.

Since Chris Bangle left BMW, the German automaker has taken many of its designs, including the new F12/F13 6 Series, in a fresh, new direction. Since 1986 Hamann Motorsports has been building and modifying BMW models, and have employed their expertise on the new drop top 6 Series.

The Hamann BMW 6 Series program takes the sleek lines of the stock model and created a body kit that gives it a longer and dynamic appearance. A new bumper emphasizes the BMW kidney bean grille and enlarges the air intakes to supply the engine with cool air. A spoiler is installed at the bottom of the bumper to increase downforce at higher speeds. Side skirts further accentuate the length and dynamics of the design as they stretch towards the rear. The back end sports a trunk-mounted spoiler for downforce and a bumper with four protruding tailpipes. The final touch is and LED daytime running light system for added safety and style.

Hamann Motorsports gives customers a wide variety of wheel options to create a truly custom look. The featured wheels (driver side) are one-piece Anniversary EVOs in a 9J x 21 front and 11J x 21 rear fitment with 265/30 ZR 21 and 295/25 ZR 21 tires. The other featured wheels (passenger side) are Hamann’s Edition Race Anodized three-piece forged rims. The wheels are finished with matte black anodized spokes with titanium screws and a polished rim flange. With the forged wheels, Hamann uses a 9J x 21 and 11J x 21 fitment with 255/30 ZR 21 and 295/25 ZR 21 Dunlop Sport Maxx tires. New sport suspension upgrades lower the Cabriolet by 30 mm at the front and rear axle and create an athletic stance.

The 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 of the BMW 6 Series Cabriolet can be given a big power upgrade thanks to Hamann. A 510 horsepower kit is in development, but customers can order the Hamann sport exhaust system that ends in a quad tailpipe design.

Inside customers have the option to create a custom interior design. Hamann offers anodized aluminum pedals, trim pieces, and door sills along with embroidered headrests, personalized floor mats, and rich leather upholstery.

Hamann Motorsports will be showcasing the new BMW 6 Series tuning package along with a few other programs at the 2011 IAA in Frankfurt. Pricing and availability details have not been released.
