Hamann Motorsport released at the 81st International Motor Show in Geneva, the tuning package for the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, called Hamman Hawk.
The core part of the power enhancement for the Hamman Hawk is the high-performance exhaust system made out of titanium. In combination with new manifolds, sports catalysts and a sports air filter, this system also renders the earthy and powerful sound of the 6.2 litre aggregate. The components are precisely adjusted with the help of a new engine characteristic map for motor electronics.
With a top performance of 636 hp / 468 kW and a maximum torque of 680 Nm at 4,850 r.p.m, the HAMANN engine exactly meets the wishes of its sports ambitious clientele. In race start mode, the Hamann Hawk Mercedes SLS AMG accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in only 3.6 seconds and with a top speed of 320 km/h.
The HAMANN HAWK front apron replaces the serial bumper and due to its shape it reduces the uplifting forces at the front axle. Larger air inlets in connection with a new LED lights unit give the two-seater an even more dynamic look. In addition, the enlarged air inlets provide better access for the engine’s increased need for fresh air. Subsequently, the air is drawn out of new bonnet made of checkered flag carbon. Striking wing, 60mm on each front side and 70mm on each rear side, already render an impressive appearance even while the car has not started moving yet. Side skirts make the Hamann Hawk lower and more stretched and underline the rims. In order to perfectly balance out the downforce of the front- and rear axle, Hamann gives the Mercedes-Benz SLS a rear wing also made of checkered flag carbon. The new rear apron with the diffuser enhances the air flow under the bottom of the car and provides room for four enormous end pipes each measuring 90 mm in diameter.
Hammann Hawk uses the single part, especially light forged wheels “Unique Forged Anodized“ in 21 inches. These are fitted in 9Jx21 with tyres measuring 245/30 ZR 21 at the front and 12.5Jx21 with tyres measuring 345/25 ZR 21 at the rear axle.
The coilover kit has been especially refined for the Hamman Hawk. Equipped with four height-adjustable dampers and four progressively wound springs, the centre of gravity can be lowered by up to 30 millimetres.
