hamman hawk big Hamann SLS AMG Hawk to Debut at Geneva Show

The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG has received a multitude of customizations from a wide range of prominent tuners. German specialist Hamann has now added its own take on the luxury grand tourer. Dubbed the Hawk, Hamman’s tuned SLS AMG is slated for a Geneva Auto Show debut this week.

There are no double-takes needed to notice the custom fittings of the Hawk. Decked in Everose Gold, the unique colorway itself is an attention-grabber. This is further enhanced by helpings of carbon fiber on the trunk as well as the hood. Hamann also added a new front bumper complete with bigger air inlets and LED lights, plus a big spoiler found at the rear. These add-ons were tested extensively using a wind tunnel to ensure that performance is still at the highest level.

Like all great tuners, Hamann was not content giving the SLS AMG a cosmetic upgrade. The 6.2-liter V8 power plant has been upgraded to 628 brake horsepower, up around 65 bhp from the stock car’s engine. Top speed is 320 kph / 199 mph, and the Hawk goes from 0-60mph in a mere 3.6 tics.

Additionally, the SLS AMG Hawk has been given a coilover kit with adjustable dampers, a quartet of springs that have been progressively wound, 30-mm lowering for the body, and lightweight forged wheels.
