Aerodynamics, engine sound and carbon inside - Exclusive HAMANN refining programme for the BMW 5 (F10)
To create a sports car with four doors from an ordinary limousine with sporty aspirations, a number of cosmetic modifications are necessary. HAMANN begins with a comprehensive pedicure by issuing new alloy wheels in various designs and sizes for the BMW 5 (F10). The most striking of these is the DESIGN EDITION RACE "ANODIZED" rim in 21inch format. With its spider in matt black and brilliantly polished rim, the DESIGN EDITION RACE "ANODIZED" is supplied as a complete wheel set with 255/30 ZR21 front and 295/25 ZR21 rear tyre sizes to interested customers at a price of 8390 euro. The special aluminium alloys make the rim superlight but also capable of bearing a high load. The titanium wheel bolts are particularly corrosionresistant and also save several grams of unsprung mass.
The design idiom of the new BMW 5 (F10) is now already thoroughly sporty, but there remains room for further improvements, which HAMANN makes accordingly. For the standard front apron HAMANN offers an adaptable front spoiler and bumper covers with builtin daytime running LEDs. The lowslung side skirts and the roof and rear spoilers change the unexciting look of a family limousine into one of a dynamic sports car. With its in housedesigned middle panel of the rear spoiler HAMANN has made room for the tailpipe of the stainless steel exhaust.
To lower the centre of gravity of the BMW 5 (F10), HAMANN uses progressive suspension springs to obtain a drop of about 35 millimetres, which reinforces the powerful look of the complete package.
Especially for the 550i, HAMANN offers a muffler with 4 tailpipes. These have a diameter of 90 millimetres each and allow the V8 engine of the top 5 model to sound in accord with its status. A metal sports catalytic converter including middle silencer can be ordered on request.
So that the interior does not have to hide behind the sporty exterior looks, HAMANN can equip the dashboard, central console, door handle panels and steering wheel with a carbon interior set with sight carbon in dull titanium grey. Other colours for these carbon fibre parts are also available on request. The driver's feet can feel good on aluminium pedals and an aluminium footrest. In addition the footwells benefit from HAMANN floor mats.
