BMW X5 M Becomes Hamann Flash Evo M
The German tuner offers two power stages for the vehicle’s bi-turbo 4.4 liter V8 unit. The first one brings an ECU remap and kills the vehicle’s factory electronic speed limiter. This brings the engine, which delivers 555 hp in a stock incarnation, to 610 hp and 680 Nm of torque.
Customers who want more muscle can opt for the MH 670 kit that adds a new set of catalytic converters and a custom rear mufler, as well as a new ECU software. Thus, the engine delivers no less that 670 hp and a maximum torque of 950 Nm, which is available between 1,500 and 5,650 rpm. This allows the SAV to offer a top speed of 300 km/h (186 mph).
The car also comes with a matching stopping power, which is provided by a system that uses 405mm rotors and six-piston calipers for the front axle and 340mm rotors with four-pot calipers for the rear one.
Like we said, the vehicle has been fitted with a bold aerodynamic kit that includes a new front fascia with LED daytime running lights, a carbon fiber bonnet with air intakes, wide wheel arches, a new rear bumper that integrates a diffuser and two centrally-mounted tailpipes, carbon fiber exterior mirrors and a carbon roof spoiler. The car now rides on 22- or 23-inch alloy rims and uses new springs that lower it by 30 mm.
As for the interior, this can be fitted with an optional quilted leather two-tone leather/Alcantara finish, carbon fiber trimming, a sport steering wheels, stainless steel Hamann-branded door sills, special pedals and floor mats.
