Hamann Motorsport has given the BMW 5-Series GT a significantly more dynamic appearance and turned the crossover between a comfortably spacious SUV and an elegant limousine into one of the most exclusive multi-purpose vehicles in the luxury class. As a renowned specialist of exquisite modifications for BMW automobiles, Hamann is offering powerful performance improvements, noteworthy sportiness when it comes to engine components and an aerodynamics programme with exciting styling for the Gran Turismo in the 5-Series.
The high sitting position of a SUV, the versatility of a van and the exclusive feeling of spaciousness of a limousine: The BMW 5-Series Gran Turismo developed specifically for the US market is already an unusual top-class, multi-purpose vehicle when it leaves the plant. Hamann has topped this and has given the BMW, internally known as the F07 series, a much more exclusive and sporty look. Sophisticated components have been developed for the Hamann aerodynamics programme and processed with top-quality workmanship. The result: a breathtaking overall design with optimised airflow across the entire vehicle. A lowering kit for the models 530d, 535i and 550i including air suspension provides the multi-purpose limousine with a much longer and dynamic appearance, even in a standing position. Perfectly synergised body components complete the exclusive appearance of the Hamann BMW 5-Series GT. The product range includes a front spoiler to be mounted on the standard front spoiler of the series, side skirts and a rear spoiler in a subtle or striking design, as required. Both provide reduced lift force at the rear axle and thus considerably improve the driving dynamics. A new rear apron makes room for the Hamann mufflers. The four impressive stainless steel exhaust pipes feature an imposing diameter of 90 mm and create an extraordinarily robust sound.
The Hamann motor specialists have developed a powerful performance gain from 245 PS (180 kW) to 275 PS (202 kW) for the 5-Series GT 530d. The torque, an even more important factor when it comes to driving pleasure, simultaneously increases from 540 Nm to an impressive 620 Nm at 1750 rpm. Thanks to Hamann Motorsport, the 5-Series Gran Turismo 530d, whose performance is enhanced due to optimisation of the engine characteristics by means of reprogramming of the series Motronic, boasts 20 Nm more torque than the standard 535d, and that for only a fraction of the surcharge actually due.
Befitting its image, the modified Gran Turismo boasts gigantic 22-inch tyres: The elegantly styled Hamann alloy wheel Anniversary Evo has been specially developed for the requirements of heavyweight, truly massive vehicles. In line with Hamann's philosophy on modifications, state-of-the-art manufacturing processes and the use of special aluminium alloy ensure maximum load capacities at low weight. Hamann Anniversary Evo designer wheels for the BMW 5-Series GT are available in the sizes 9.0 x 22 for the front and 10.5 x 22 for the back. Wide-base tyres are fitted front (265/30ZR22) and back (295/25ZR22).
The Hamann interior matches the grand feel of the exterior. Pedals and the footrest come in an aluminium design, and the black foot mats feature a silver Hamann inscription for sporty emphasis. Hamann Motorsport offers a high-quality, wide range of products for additional modification and individual tailoring of the interior of the BMW 5-Series GT.
